My FN2 Round 2 - N/A Build

So after selling my last FN2 for a Mk5 DSG Golf R32 it only took 5 months to miss my Honda. I sold the Golf and returned to a 59 plate milano FN2 with only 28k on the clock! It'll be a slow journey but the goal is a Mugenised N/A build with as much power as is financially sensible

Anyway, here she is. More updates soon!

Great base to start on.

Update: fitted a Mugen sun strip, really makes a difference to the front and acts as a great sun visor! Yes I know the 'power' is slightly slanted but it'll do until I decide to change it again!

Update:

Back seats are out! It took 10 minutes so well worth anyone trying. Exhaust is definately louder inside the cabin and car feels a bit nippier (although this is probably a placebo effect). I read on here they save 45kg so some nice weight saving here.

5kg? Wow that's heavier than you'd think.

Update:

Recently fitted a Skunk2 gear knob too! The stock gaitor and knob were looking shabby so thought I'd take the opportunity to fit one. Also fitted a proper leather gaitor.

It would be rude not to use the sticker too

You can really feel the extra knob weight, the throw is so much more precise and fast. Ive removed the large cylindrical nut also to drop the knob another inch lower. The gaitor is no longer supported (by the nut I removed) and flops slightly but it's worth the drop in stalk length.

So on a happy note; just had my renewal through, far too much! Hats off to Green Light though, came in far cheaper than the competition and they'll cover all aesthetic mods and power increases upto 250bhp with no extra cost! Definately recommend them.
