The first pic of the esteem looks damn cool. Check out the alloys, they are just fabulous, but i'll definetely not go with the spoiler. It would be great if you have the front portion pic of the black esteem

As it is the head has to be open as we have finaly found that the oil seals of the valves are busted, so why not try something which gives a better drivability.


the 16v head would increase the power and driveability as it would have better flow than the 8v head , however you'd have to fabricate a manifold for the carb or go fuel injected(not very straight forward and easy unless you really know what your doing or have a tuner/mechanic who does!)

Exactly! would polishing the ports and shaving the 8v head be a beter option?

Thanks Yatin,
I simply love the rear of the red esteem.
What i am thinking of is, Rear from the red with flushed boot.
Front dont want it to be low as the entrance on my building is very much inclining, my muffler used to scraps the ground when i remove the car out, had to get the muffler tip cut in slant to avoid it.

I am thinking to change the front brakes to Drilled and Slotted ones.
They are quite cheap here in Saudi.
Now the only problem is the size.
Can some one please tell me the size, diameter of the disc, the length between the holes (PCD), so that i don't land up buying wrong size.

They are not factory lights, I belive they are from some peugeot model, had read and article on this conversion on the net, when hunting for projectors.
As for the the PCD 114.3 for esteem. you can ask for swift FWD dics.
