Hey man,
sweet looking ride, I like them with no wing, it just makes them look sleek.
Nice colour too, is that factory?

What dose the Option 20 part mean?

Only thing I'd do is loose the SSV front bar, it looks to much like a VN!!

Maybe a Brock or Johnson front bar with the Sprint lower lip..

How was the BBM when you first put it on? I'm gonna do mine soon, although I'll loose the strut brace the power should benefit the handling loss...

Thanks guys :D

Yeah wingless is the way :p yeah factory and original paint except for the body kit.
Option 20 is a cop pack
I want to replace it with an XR6 front bar and lights, but it'll do for now lol
Just be prepared and make sure you have all the tools and bits :) the bolts are a big pain! But it's worth it.

yeh I'm pretty good with mechanics, and I already have a donor car for the parts and a EL ecu lined up.

Which bolts did you have troubles with?
Or what was the bolt reference to?

It's the bolts at back of the manifold, closest to the firewall, the bottom one is a prick! Haha.

And cheers :)

Haha yeah it would help.... alot

So the latest and greatest, I now have the BA intake piping on and also my J3 chip, boy does it make a difference! Absolutely recommend them, made the world of difference.

Looks good man, you'll love the thermos when you can suddenly hear the actual engine instead of the vacuum cleaner noise of the fan.

How much did the chip cost you all up?

I'm gonna do the BBM and cam before I get a chip but I'm weighing up costs of different systems ATM.

Cheers :) haha yeah I'm looking forward to it! Hopefully get a little bit of power from it aswell.

190$ + 10 postage. BBM is absolutely worth it, J3 chip is a must! Amazing stuff. Yeah I talked to Jason about tuning the chip for the cam, even though the cam isn't in yet. He said it should be okay as it's only a small cam. As of yet nothing weird has happened so yeah very happy

Hey mate, nice EB, love the colour. I agree, not so fond of the front bar, but I think the XR front end would look really great. Keep up the good work.
Thanks

Yeah I like the colour aswell, not so much out there. It's on my to do list :P lol

The cam is in! (Wade 1636) I haven't felt much of a difference yet, I might need a tune for it... although my J3 chip is tuned for it? I have reset the ECU so we'll see what happens. Revs out to 5.5 now though :D
