    Thanks :) as said yes the brakes are 300mm.. awsome upgrade but they need a bigger master cylinder. I love the colour too.. never seen another vti in the colour

    Well haven't been on this for a while.. Things have changed... The clutch bearing went on the way down to Santa pod for jap show -.- so kinda decided there to go turbo..... Bought a skunk2 megapower rr, got a competition clutch stage 4. And a flywheel to match.. And bought a holset hy35 turbo :D.. Got alot to do.. But hoping for 350+ bhp.. Plan is hondata s300, 1000cc id injectors, eagle rods and cp pistons, custom Mani and 3" downpipe :)

    Heard a lot about the Hy35 lately. Super interested in how it performs on your car.
    You staying 1600cc or stroking it?

    Staying 1.6 mate.. Sounds like a lot of fun to me explaing to people its only a 1.6 when its 350+ bhp haha

    Not much progress for a while as I'm skint this month but took my rocker cover into work to get 2 an-8 fitings welded on and the cover is now in paint and picked up vti-s splitters from a guy who didn't have a clue what they were and I had them for £40 :p so their in paint too.. Also was bored in work.. So botched myself a new battery tie down bar....

    that's a steal for those lips dude !!
    I sold front and rear lips from my Vti-s to a guy in the states, he guy paid me £180 for the front lip and £150 for the rear lip and covered the postage

    I know been looking for a set for ages and was just lucky saw them on Facebook advertised just as aftermarket lips, picked them up next day, they were a bit rough but my sprayer has repaired them and I'm just waiting for them back now . never seen a thunder gray with them so quite excited
