GTO your car looks very very sweet. Just love the colour and the mods.

the car luks neat... but i personally don't like spoilers on citys.. rest luks perfect!!!!!!!!
The Spoiler is stock on the Vtec.

@ GTO - What is the profile of those tyres?? At full lock do they foul with the wheels arches.

Have you upgraded your headlamps??

The KnN is sweet and the wheels are just p-u-r-f-e-c-t.

Post the mods for performance has the speed at particular RPM changed. I am sure you can hit 100kmph in 2nd gear easily, and with 16inchers your car will surely be faster with more miles per rotations.

P.S Can we have a fill pic of the hood from inside.

P.S 2 I am still waiting for a review on your Petrol Jeep

Just one thing why did you swap the original Enkei vtec alloys for taiwanese make?
The Enkeis were too small and just not right for the tyre size that I was looking at. And there is no problem with quality Asian wheels; have been using them in various cars since more than a decade.

Busa, No touching the fenders even at full lock. However, I have yet to take a full load of passengers in it.

Havent upgraded the headlights as the Vtec has limited highway driving. The stock is sufficient for the city.

You gonna have to wait a little longer for the petrol Jeep review as it is currently with Milestone (Mahindra owned workshop) for sorting out some issues.

Thanks MaserQ. Honda called this colour "Desert Silver".

Congrats on a good job.

If you want it even lower key, lose the OE spoiler - it'll look great.
Here - I Photoshopped it for you:



Let me know when you find somebody to build you a well finished heat shroud for your CAI - I need one too.

Arrey, cover 3 sides of filter with metal plates. Lay insides with fibreglass. Done. I think Chirayu of Xtreme Graphix fame does fibre glass work.

Was about to say the same thing there Ported!

However, for those that want a ready kit (and don't mind shelling out the moolah), I believe K&N sell these heat shields.

Recently was present when they were fitting the first extreme kit on the Civic. Comes with the shield as part of the package. Very neat looking.

Love the OE Vtec look. And the spoiler taking up real estate in the rear view mirror!

Where did you see that Civic? Obviously the guy has heat-shields in stock. Please PM me the number.

Four Seasons itself. Give 'em a call. However the one I saw was specifically designed for the Civic.
