    New ICE install and a day spent cleaning!

    Another day off work today for me and ClarkySri-T so we thought it was about time that we got his ICE install sorted out.

    In my old mk4 1.4 (very slow) I had a pukka ICE install and for the last 8 months its been sitting in my shed, so Phil took it off my hands.

    The install was ready just to sit in his sri turbo with no problems because it was originally in a mk4 astra so it would fit like a glove...... and it did!

    The install houses an infinity hq 12inch sub (proper loud), sub jbl amp (1200watt), 4 channel jbl sub (4x250wattts) and a 1.2 power cap. The install is so loud its crazy, wish i'd put it in my car now

    When i built the install about 12 months ago it took me about 35 hours in total to build, only took us 1 hour today to get it all in, not bad!

    Half way through install



    Install nearly complete, just a few bits to finish off over the next few days





    Once we had finished the install it was time for the cleaning, even the engine bay got a bit of attention





    Once the engine bays were finished it was time to get the outside sorted................ and here's the results













    More modifications to come on both cars, fingers crossed all before PVS

    Thumbs Down Bov

    DONT buy a cheap blow off valve off ebay!!!

    I had mine on my car for not even 2 months and the spring has gone in it already!

    I also encounterd a few problems whilst it was on there like the engine cutting out everytime you came to a stop and everytime you put ur foot down the TC light flashed and then stayed on permanently after, the car had to be turned off and back on again for the light to go out!!!
