Hi! i am debating which 1 to mod! i brought the silver 1 as it is! horrid wheels! was going to do the silver one but its done 101000 miles where as my redden has done 45000? so not sure. . . . . but when i do decide ime going for a ek9 front and rear bumper, ek9 rear wing, lights and grill. then strip out the interior with a red ek9 carpet an red ek9 seats, matt black dash and trim, then was thinking os a b16b conversion. but looking on this ace website now have a b18 in mind? and coms apreciated. will get some pics of jordan up asap.

yeh a b18 is cheap and powerfull. alot smoother than the b16 but still fast. hughs ek 1.8 could keep up with a 250bhp monster easy possibly more?!?!

hughs is an aerodeck b18 like the vti saloon. a few less horses than a teg but quite a bit cheaper. as far as i know the teg b18 revs higher so has a diff head and pistons. a conversion may or may not be cheaper than finding a smashed teg anyway.

on the upside you can rape a dc2 for other parts like rear discs and front if you get the halfshafts with the engine. ive heard of people using the sus aswell. could be a good project 8-| . you may want some of the interior too :D

see the other post i left. looms are too bad as long as you can find what goes where and sometime have to extend it to go to a different destination. aerodecks have similar spec to an ek3 in terms of equipment except i thin kthey have a/c aswell but you can dump that.
