think your best bet is do do a d16y8 inlet conversion ( im not sure how to do this or what gains you would see )

followed by the usual stuff, ram air induction kit, new exhaust manifold, maybe a de-cat, and a performance system.....finally you would need to get it re-mapped propperly (i.e on a rollng road, pretty sure you need an aftermarket ecu for that tho....not 100% sure mind).


for the amount of money it would cost you would be better off putting the money towards a Type R. :thumbup:

Nope, that k&n won't fit.
And there are quite a few strut braces. J's racing, 2 types of e-tech braces, omp, tanabe, and some others.

I got an extra 20hp for around £500 spent plus a useful 126 lb ft torque (confirmed by dyno) for exhaust,manifold and Viper ind kit, check out my old posting under dyno results.

I will be putting my Viper kit up for sale soon as just swapped my Ep2 for an Fk2

A remap won't make a great deal of power on an na engine. Wait until you have finished modding and you are happy with the car.

It's then a good idea to get the car custom mapped to help it run the best it can with the new mods and release an extra couple of horsies!
