What's your next mod going to be?
« on: October 20, 2010, 11:59:43 PM »
I am so sick of being broke,
I am working hard to be in a better position next year, So all I am planning is, In order of when it's going to happen!
I'm thinking front mounted intercooler, at 450bhp I'm pushing the top mount a bit! so not a huge front mount and painted black, mounted high with the outlets at the top so the pipe work can come through to the engine bay either side on the rad (heatwrapped obviously) then rotate the inlet manifold to receive the pipe from beside the rad, and rotate the compressor housing 120 deg to face upwards to go straight out to the front beside the other side of the rad,
All red crinkle painted like the inlet, and I'd have an insulation sleeve to put over the pipes for trackdays,

After that, I really want to do a rear under body defuser and twin exhausts (one 4.5" each side) and as big a functional defuser, ( I dont have room for a functional spoiler) It would be similar to the arse of the new Focus RS,

Then a good way down the line, Wide arch and 10" wide rims!

What you's got on your mind for your car's when things get better???

getting the car back on the road is the next objective. after new tyres nct ect ill be concentrating on lightening the car by swapping out the heavy interior for lighter impreza seats. seriously considering taking out the aircon to shed a few pounds and to make a bit of room in the engine bay, but ive to seek expert advice on that first. after that upgrade the brakes and lines.

Don't have much money myself Dan but my plans at the minute are. I'll be spraying the raio surround etc satin black as I did with the last prodrve bug later this week and repace the STi logo on my mud flaps with a prodrive one.
prodrive centre caps for the Speedlines,
prodrive gear knob,
prodrive oil cap,
prodrive batt clamp,
prodrive dust caps.
prodrive sports cat and centre section.
WR1 turbo,
remap for E5 from Jolly Green.
replace the front tyres with Dunlop SP sports to match the rears.
WRC carbon mirrors (maybe)

All to be done over a lot of time as funds are made available.  :icon_thumleft:
