I have but its a load of dosh, although my mates del sol turbo just made 298bhp at the wheels, which is an estimated 350-360 at the fly Shocked Is giving me ideas for the future, but only if I come into some money or a better job Laughing

Yeah its a lad I know in the north east, got kevlar bonnet and kevlar rear spoiler, with DC5 blue Recaro's and Works TE37 rims in a custom blue (I think thats them lol) its sex wee material for sure tongue

Its also got throttle bodies and some internal work not 100%, think EK9 cams etc. Went with them to JAE. Only thing is they've all got a thing about Rota's, they hate them, took piss out of Rota's even though some of them knew me and Andy both have them on our Honda's, we weren't impressed Laughing Whats wrong with them?!

yeah, one of you two should turbo one - dunny you should either flog yours on the cheaper side and buy another one and turbo it or just revive it and spend the money on it. OR just sell it and get what we both know you really want Very Happy haha

Not bothered if they're copies, saved over £1k lol Most of people I've met who have bought Mugen or similar high end of the market rims have been right muppets and brag about it, were plenty of them at JAE this year lol

Turbo coversion is too expensive for me, we're not all on £20k+ a year lol

I did have some Rays 350Z rims on my S14a, but they were already on the car when I bought it lol They were ok but I was gonna sell em and get some 17's instead but that plan changed and went back to VTEC Very Happy

Was toying with the idea of a carbon rear lip but the Spoon exhaust would get in the way, old lip was taken off cos it was tight up against it and ended up bubbling the paint Laughing
