A few mods to the CW type R

Hi all,

Not had chance to post pictures up of the latest changes made to my car, but here they are:-

Milltek Cat back exhaust, pick is after giving it a clean before fitting. Really impressed with the sound and can tell it pulls better than before. Also retains a certain level of quietness when required.



Next up was Gruppe M induction kit, which I managed get off ebay, nearly brought the Tegiwa carbon fibre intake, but luckily I waited abit longer and a Gruppe M come up Also to go along with that I also fitted Red Samco hoses for abit of bling and colour code the engine bay







Previously to that I had my Tein springs and FRSU done by Grinspeed, which has completely changed how the car handles now. Not had chance to give car a good clean and take pictures yet but will do shortly

Next up will be new discs, pads, brake fluid and braided hoses, along with some light weight 18" alloys, GP kit, flashpro, carbon fibre spark plug & inlet manifold cover.

Any comments welcome good or bad

Cheers
Leigh

Looks good mate!

But I'd get yourself a stainless intake pipe, that pipe will just choke your intake

Looks good mate, was considering getting some Samco hoses myself. I have some Tein springs waiting to go on, how much did Grinspeed charge for fitting and FRSU if you don't mind me asking? PM if you prefer.

Cheers Once get other engine mods and remap will see what it's like on rolling road if it is suffering then I shall look to replace, but at moment looks good from a bling point of view. Where can you get these from if I did need one as I don't fancy buying the HKS kit just for the pipe lol

Cheers I got the hoses from demon tweeks, were the cheapest place I could find, they do look great fitted

I'm really pleased with the Teins, car sits really nice and def an improvement over the standard setup. I would say the Eibachs from my little drive in Staff Deltics car were a softer ride. No I don't mind you asking i'll PM you now
