    Picked her up on the 27th of November last year.....came down from a Focus RS cause of running costs but never had a nice cruiser before. The car is a 2.0 VTEC sport and the car has the J spec splitter kit, custom twin exit backbox, 17' Asuka Racing light weight alloys wrapped in Nexen N8000 tyres, legal tints on the back, sprayed the grill black and lowered on PI springs, Razo 300g weighted gear knob, brand new clutch. I also re fitted the spoiler that had been removed and generally tidied it up. Needs some bodywork doing but other than that looks all good. Just had the engine major serviced with all the fluids, filters, plugs, tappets etc done also.

    Got some bits planned but may take a while to update as saving for a house aswel!!

    Plans are- Induction kit probably CAI, new battery and oil, new number plates, Hammerite the calipers, tidy up the engine bay, refit splitter kit with Tiger Seal, get mobile chip repair man out etc etc.

    Some pics of how it stands now-

    Quick update got my hands on the back box from Magnaflow USA and looks very nice welds are all well done and look strong!

    Cars booked in Tue with Top Gear Performance in Doncaster for fitting as he was by far cheapest for fitting customers own stuff.

    Few pics -

    Cheers mate! Was suprised tbh on the quality for the price seems just as good as my previous jap made boxes. Hoping it looks cool angled a bit and slightly upswept. How do the flowmasters sound dude?

    I have to say Magnaflow and Flowmasters are both equally good,but in the US the enthusiast community favours magnaflow.The purist think the science behind the Flowmaster design is better and noise and performance can be achieved.

    The Flowmaster on my first gen gives the car the sound of high lift cam engine :vtec: without the VTEC :Wink:. I have to agree the US does make quality exhaust parts have to give credit there.
