Very nice, I like the wheels, would look good on my car :D

What was the RBC and Throttle Body like once changed, noticeable difference?

I have the tegiwa mani and miltek non res, looking at the engine as the next step and was going to do those mods next.

Are they a big job to change / how much labour?

A good midrange difference, and a nice proper N/A sound from the RBC! All fitted on my drive so the only other cost was mapping by TDInorth:)

Good numbers, so cams next then?? ;)

175 ft/lb is a lot of torque without cams for a k20
Cams are next on the list!:worms::p

then maybe oil pump :)

On my way to the magic 260bhp :rolleyes:

Excellent, that's a great looking FN2

The car looks fab with wings, fenders, alloys, etc. Will stop and go well too.

I think your mod's list is a bit short tho ;)

Is it a tough job to do or reasonably easy? A trip to your drive might be in order :p

Very nice and aggressive mate - I like that a lot! :D
I like the headlight tint. You thought about putting it on the fogs too - as they don't match which would drive me mad

Pretty easy tbf, the coolant was a PAIN IN THE ASS!! as it runs through the throttle body AND the intake manifold!!! :facepalm: other than that its a simple bolt in job :rolleyes:

Do you get any issues with erratic idles ?

I've been advised to swap the J35 throttle body with the FD2 one before mapping.

Pain in the ass as in it gets everywhere? How would you recommend tackling it and how long did it take? I imagine replacing the TB at the same time would be easier as well.

As above the easiest way is to drain the coolant first, and yes, change the throttle body at the same time!

When changing the TB i had to do the idle learn procedure,:p


isn't the J35 the same as the FD2 size wise?:popcorn:
