Shiny blue 260bhp FD2 takes to the woods

Well, with the sunny weather of late, finally got round to giving the old girl a good clean and getting some woodland shots The spec is as follows:

Litchfield supplied FD2 with ASTs
Mugen air intake
Toda manifold with A3 cams and flashpro (Toda exhaust being fitted later this month)
Rota P1 rims

Dyno: 258bhp and 175lb/ft (more to come with exhaust)

Cheers guys. Actually there's a story to these photos - I went out yesterday pm with with the newly polished car and camera, did a load of shots and got home only to find I'd used a duff CF card Had to give it another spruce up this morning and do it all again


Ben - NHB is one of my fave colours too but I don't think I could be as dedicated with the cleaning as you!

Alan - I'll give you your car back when I've finished 'testing' it. Could take a good few years though

R555 - most of the FD2 boys seem prefer CW but the Artic Blue looks fab in the metal

Tom - it's great for bambinos (so long as you keep out of VTEC)

The FD2 is a sweet car and with the mods you've done it's even sweeter!
The colour is nice, it doesn't scream Type R, which isn't a bad thing as it makes it different from the pack.

Every time I see an FD2 it makes me want to sell mine and buy one!

Although CW is the definitive Type R colour I actually prefer blue, same goes for the DC5, I love that in blue also.
