Who's doing it for you, are they well known, are they going to base it on a blueprint of a well known one i.e CPL or do they research and develop it all?

its a combination of XO powertuning and acompany called AAS (Copyright Advanced Automotive Systems Ltd. 2006) who are very well known in the north east. XO have asked me to let them use my car as a donor car so that they can build a custom header and a jig so that they can be mass produced due to this the header should of cost 650 but i am only paying 300 and xo are paying the rest that was a deal too good to pass up

Oh you haven't driven it yet then?

Depends what phone you've got, if it allows you you could send the pic via email to your email address then retrieve it from your emails on your pc and save to your computer.

Very nice

Have you told your insurance company yet, I would be interested to hear the cost.

Have you got any plans to add an exhaust and or Hondata ECU yet?
