Purpose of this thread is to showoff your unique or rare mods/parts, stuff you think nobody else has or has thought of. Or stuff that some people might have but you rarely see, or custom fabricated parts like a one off rear diffuser etc... It dosn't have to be anything special, just something you feel sets your car apart just a bit from the rest or something your proud of for fabbing up or thinking of.

I'll start!!

This is a glass radiator hose insert made by Killerglass It's very strong, they have a vid on the site that shows it being driven over by a very large truck then they use it to hammer in a nail :nerv: Some people might think its rice, it serves no purpose aside from looks but i love it :D It's secured by heavy duty shrink clamps, you slide them on then use a heatgun to shrink them, the insert itself is barbed so i have no worries of it leaking what so ever :nice:

This was right after install, i had not turned the car on yet:


This is after the car had been started and the fluid was flowing but it had been turned off for about 2 hours so the fluid settled a bit, its usually full :)


Engine bay shot:


Now post up yours :nice:

Comments, opinions, thoughts welcome :) Love it? Hate it? Feel free to say so :D

Got a fair amount of parts on my car, think the "rarest" would be the ORC 309 single plate clutch though





It also makes the car feel bonkers to drive :wow:

konradinu i have been waiting to see such a setup, very beautiful!!!! That LED light underneath might get some unwanted attention from the police though don't you think? I would also remove the tow hook to allow full view of those beautiful suspension parts ;)

stevenEK9 Clutch looks beautiful especially with the light weight billet pressure plate!! Looks $$$ ;)

zeff Thanks bro, i had it sitting in my room for two years now, finally decided to put it on :lol:

I will find out, if they don't i will try to organize a group buy and ship them to you guys, i think they are normally $75 but i got them on a Christmas special for $50 a few years back, hold on im gonna check there website now.....
.....
.....
...... HOLY ****!!! they are on special for freaking $29!!! And the shrink clamps are like $8 tops, so $37 aint bad, i just sent them an email to see if they ship international, if not get 5 guys together and will do it for you guys but i am slow with these things because i am very busy with work so you all must be patient lol. Also you don't have to use the shrink clamp, you can use a traditional worm drive clamp but the shrink clamp looks 10x better!!

Looks great quality:nice: Have you the wastegate dump pipe plumbed back into exhaust or just open pipe?
open pipe, the dump runs down and under the oil pan and then just screams!! It sounds nasty mean, especially if its a close race, as soon as the gate opens i just blow there doors off and its awesome! But i do wish sometimes the car was quiet like an NA ek9 with a twinloop, you just can't have it all though ;)
