A couple of new purchases have been made for my baby recently.
Firstly an EDS side mounted intercooler from AndyM, cheers mate
Slightly larger than the standard cooler
Was a little bitch to fit though
Front bumper off, after this i've had to remove my air con rad. Not too bad though as i never refitted my compressor after doing the engine conversion.
And even then it was a very tight fit. Must get my hands on the proper brackets to mount the radiator back a little.
First impressions are good though, a little more lag but a smoother more powerful curve once it gets going.
Next job will be sorting out the piping to the SMIC from the turbo. I have squeezed the standard pipe over to get it fitted for now.
And yesterday my HID's arrived from JCAstraDTi, thankyou
8000k, 55w setup. Installed in my FK angel eyes just after they arrived.
Light output is sooo much better, i can actually see now. Although a small alignment could be done on the drivers side light it's all looking good so far
Now they are so bright that my full beams are almost unnoticeable . Maybe i should get a set for the main beam??
Although, i wouldn't be able to flash anyone as they have to warm up. Anyone else run HID's in the main beam, and do you reckon it's worth it?
One ballast by the washer bottle:
And one tucked away down the side of the airbox:
Next, a trip to regal methinks. Although i'd like to wait for the EDS IPF machine or the dreamscience one for the ZLET.
