    Hi all, I just decided to do my tread where I'll be putting everything about my tourer instead of posting every time new tread :Wink:
    so when I got it was juts standard looking tourer
    DSCF0417_zps020b7c90.

    , then I started to do some mods like different wheels, tinted windows

    ATR brakes upgrade
    dscf0852v.

    with another set of wheels :lol: EVO8
    dscf0871k.

    then I had RX8 wheels and few more

    winter setup :Smile:
    8F7EC9DF-BA8A-4713-A24A-7133098A2DD3-406-00000031C8B770B4.

    , but I decided to stay for a long time with EVO9 wheels.

    in the mean time car got first remap here in UK, which gave me 181 BHP and 406 Nm
    I fitted KW lowering spring and changed my current rubber brake lines to HEL steel braided ones.

    after few conversations with my friend about more power from diesel I decided to get FMIC which replaced our tiny side mounted OEM IC which really struggle to cool down the air, so when I collected all bits...

    another brake upgrade, this time ATS calipers and black diamond brake discs

    DSC_0243_zps76b8a5ec.

    in july during my holiday in Poland I got another remap :lol: this time it was custom map done on the rolling road with laptop on the knees, result 204bhp and 412Nm
    IMG_4776_zps3cb1f586.
    thanks to FMIC temperature has drop from approx 90 Celsius degrees to approx 60.

    hi guys, just wanted to show you another mod :Wink: here's short shifter fitted to my car, tbh I didn't expect so big difference in shifting :Smile: additionally my gear stick has been shortened for about 3cm, so I'm very pleased with this mod :Thumbup:

    Looks really well on a nice set of wheels with a decent sidewall :Grin:

    Was there any requirement for arch mods?

    3cms is actually a really good reduction unlike the mugen one which takes near the whole lot out which can lead to selecting the wrong gear.

    Greg you got any more left bud?

    Thanks :Thumbup:

    yeah there is high profile as these tyres were on the wheels when I bought them and because there is decent tread I kept them.
    Arches needed rolling.

    Well there is 3 cm less from the top and short shifter, but no issues with selecting gears at all, no I don't have any more left, but there will be probably another buy as there is few more peoples interested because this shifters also works on 5 spd gearbox, when I'll be ordering them I'll let you know CJ, so if you'll be still interested I'll put you down on the list :Thumbup:

    small update about my tourer, yesterday DRL and coming/leaving home lights has been fitted to my car. Relay is using full beam lights for both functions, so DRL comes on when key in the ignition is turned on, lights are at 30% of full beam, they turn off automatically when I turn on dipped lights. C/L home lights turning on every time I lock or unlock the car they're set to 15% of full beam. there's a lot of settings like brightness of DRL and C/L from 0%-70%, time for C/L home , soft start ( light will dim when on or off) basically I'm very pleased with this mod :Wink:here are some pics :Wink:
