So here's the first job for the winter, its kinda cold inside the barn/workshop
-7c same on the outside :)

JAPSPEED FMIC D1 Kit:

Old vs. New.



Its plug & play, just using the mounts thats already there.



Should be at the right place there I think.



First pipe fits the hole into the enginebay



Last picture from todays work, my feet started to get cold...

Fitment was okay, not the worst i've seen. A bit fiddling around the wheelarches... General quality was great. Worth the money I will say :)

Made a quick stop at the barn today to finish up the FMIC. You'll understand why I didn't stay at the barn too long further down this thread....




FMIC done. Must say that this kit is brilliant, thanks to Japspeed. Now I just have to wait 2 months to see how it works.



Outside the barn, looks cold...



It is cold, where are you global warming?

New update from Norway.

Have started to freshen up the boot, making new interior and find a way to fit the amp...

Using FatMat to improve sound, hopefully :)


Here's where the amp is going to sit, made a little shelf for it


Glued some fabric on the plate and fitted the amplifier, DLS CA12.
Not going to have a extreme soundsystem in this car, just want a bit more punch than original.


Old and boring interior...


Working on the new ones


Final result of the interior in the boot, subwoofer will be hooked up later.

Update: Installing lowering springs

Tein S-Tech Springs from Amber Performance

Here's the package from Amber Performance:)


Started to remove the rear dampers first, thought maybe they would be very hard to remove but no. Former owner had coilovers on this car so the bolts had been loosen a bit before.


Rear damper, my painter hasn't covered the dampers while spraying the car :(


Damper removed, upgrade for the next winter is to change all of struts and bars all over.


Rear dampers...

Thanks, just some minor plans here and there...

Install some instruments, oil temp, oil press and turbo press.
Change oil on diff, gearbox and engine
Japspeed shortshifter
Engine bling bling
Either Sparco Torino seats or Cobra Misano (pair)
Fit the frontbumper, have to cut it because of the FMIC
Install some indicators to the frontbumper... and reg. plate
And hook up the subwoofer

During summer I will probably get some new wheels and maybe a radiator.

This winter is sooo looong, I want to take it for a spin NOW
