Re: My EK3

just got my car back from having the lips colour coded to the car :D really pleased with it, has done a amazing job. and i got the bumper strips removed and smoothed in :D think it looks alot better than just colour coding them ;)

Re: My EK3

very nice loving the colour i must say :p

heres mine, considering getting the front and rear bumpers filled out and sprayed on mine too, but how much did

it sting you??

saying that at the same time on my car i also love the contrasts with the black grill/sideskirts/headlights/bumpstrips against

the gun metal car!!

btw your cars lookin sweet, get here slammed n she'l look sweet, gonna try get mine lowered after xmas, jus need money for coilovers tho

Re: My EK3

thanks people, ya i really want to get it lowered but dont want to do it the cheap nasty way of just getting springs. want some coilovers, will be looking to do this after xmas :D

josh is cost me 60 a bumper to get it smoothed out and respray the whole bumper including my black ek9 lip :). the guy did a awesome job :)

btw josh what wheels you got on yours? they look amazing on ur ek. i no what you mean about the contrast in the colours i thought the same on mine but i think you cant beat it all colour coded, worth doing. love the black angel eyes headlight

Re: My EK3

will try get a few good pics up of my own car, just hard these days getting a picture of it while its clean and daylight

lol, with working all the time!! thats a very good price, i was charged 55 per type r lip ffs!! and rang around a bit

and that seemed to be a very reasonable price too!! im starting up a Bodyworking course next year and will be

getting equipment like spray gun and compressors very shortly so mite even take off the bump strips and spray

them, if it cocks up i can always fill out the gap and spray the bumpers!!

my alloys are ACE CO47's, i love them :)


have you got much lined up performance wise?

mine is only a 1.4 EJ9 so far having a new exhaust manifold, catback system and induction kit, collecting

for a cylinderhead swap at the moment which i hope to be doing in the next month or two :)

Re: My EK3

ah kk well ur already ahead having a 1.5 vtec lol, mines a 1.4 nonvtec lol!!

think your car is 115 standard, you could probs do the same as me, find a cylinder head off a 1.6 vtec in the same

d-series!! will probs be alot easier for you as im not 100% sure but you may be able to keep the same ecu!

read up on mini-me swaps mate, 90bhp 1.4's have been built up to 140bhp before with just a cylinder head swap

new intake manifold and a bit of fine tuning!!

Re: My EK3

well so far i only have a 4-2-1 manifold, induction kit and cat-back perfomance exhaust system,

wanting coilovers after xmas and wouldnt mind stiffening the car up more with strut braces, cant do this at the moment

though because of the way my throttle body faces up, a strut brace wouldnt fit over the top of my induction kit tubing!!

looking around for parts for the mini-me swap at the moment and me and a friend are gonna fit it once iv

everything gathered up, then gonna have to save up a bit of money to get the car properly tuned/re-mapped etc!!

i would say that will really do me after that, im only 19 so 130-140bhp will do me nicely for a bit until i

have enough money for an ep3 or DC2 Integra!! :)


edit

fave mod so far though has to be my red EP3 seats :D

great thanks m8, will look into it... 140 to 150 bhp would be awesome from a non turbo 1.5 VTEC. well i think so anyway :D
Good luck ;) I hope your planning to skim the head to bump up the compression ration then?

Re: My EK3 *New Alloys*

ya i want some coilovers next :) will look better then, from derbyshire m8, close to derby. tints are on the inside only cost 100 quid to get them done at a place in derby :)

The exhaust is 4inch tail pipe with a jap style back box with a straight throught pipe (no silly middle boxes lol) :) love it makes a awesome sound all through the revs not tht loud ( :confused: ) lol, cost me 200 quid from powerflow in leek (silver systems) did a awesome job, some people say powerflow are poor quality but the guy who did mine was awesome :) :D
