Nice breadvan! Test drove one before I got my FN2, loved it but was just too small to use with the kids as a daily!

Congrats. Can't wait to see your progress with this one. Give me a shout about the bonnet if benji doesn't have it.

Had a prem before and wish I hadn't got rid, always had a soft spot for it. The ep3 is a great car out of the box imo but I never modded my first one and after modding the Fn2 fancied a go. Reminds me, I have a unused header to sell

Fair enough. Does the EP3 respond better to mods than the FN2? I suppose that and you're 100kgs ish lighter to start with gives it a helping hand 😊

No balance shaft
It's got a spare wheel though

Not sure, whenever I look online at the ep3 with similar mods it always seems 10 to 15 bhp more than the Fn2. No idea why.

Better exhaust route and no balance shafts to get rid of.

They tend to get 10-20bhp over an FN2 for the same mods

Yeah, the exhaust is almost a straight through. Responds well to breathing mods, the gruppe m/tegiwa induction kits get good gains, also the Aem v1. Will be an early mod.

Heres my old cosmic if you fancy a read @flashy brilliant cars and i also would love an EP3 Again as i never modded the engine either really. So a track dedicated one would be nice but subaru's keep calling me

@MarcBK08
Been reading through your thread, nice mods
My shopping list is growing now, JDM rarb, induction (can't decide on), 2.5" B-pipe. Camber arms and bolts and springs.
I see Japspeed do a sports cat 200cpi downpipe, guess it is a straight swap for the cat?

Cheers mate, the only thing I can think of doing to mine now is cams, itb's and a bbk which I'm not sure I will ever do, there's stuff missing off my list too, vibra technics engine mounts, super pro bushes etc. I'm glad it was already done.

I would imagine it will be a straight swap for the cat, it could throw an engine management light so you may need to map it. If I was buying an induction it would be the tegiwa one, sounds best to my ears. I wouldn't recommend the eibach sportline kit It's too low in my opinion and causes issues with rubbing, the 15mm prokit will be far better if you like a b road blast.

Hmm, brake Caliper colour? Either pale blue or red perhaps. Priced up a JDM rarb at 114.

I'm leaning more towards red, think it'll suit the cosmic grey.
