Re: just swapped s3 for ingetra

Assuming it's got a long service history then I'm sure it'll be fine. If the VTEC is buggered it'll smoke.

Go and enjoy the finest FWD car ever made.

Get an AEM v2 intake for it. It'll cost around £200. The Recaros in the cabin are awesome but usually need attention on the bolsters.

Suspension would be my port of call. Coilovers, poly bushes, anti-roll bars and strut braces.

i want the blitz sus induction i like the metallic sounding rasp i had 1 on my 190vvti celica sounded amazing. and as for the seats ive found some to do them but where they are worn down the sides im having black suede with red stiching in stead of the red thats already in. it already has anti roll bars and strut braces. maybe some new wheels not sure which yet tho or what colour?

The AEM v2 is widely regarded as the best CAI available for the B18. I've got the black seats you're talking about in my BMW. Expect to pay around £600 for a decent pair. Most bolsters will be worn though.

Look at Rota for wheels. Lightweight JDM (although essentially copies) goodness at a fair price.
