No pictures but oil and filter change yesterday. It's done 6.5k since the last so it was due. I used the usual shell helix ultra 5w-40, a Mann oil filter and another new sump plug (may aswell change every service for the sake of 2 quid)

I will probably use quantum next time but unsure where to get it from as I don't think tps trade to the public anymore. Can I get it from RPS does anybody know?

No pictures but probably the biggest mod so far... Gone stage 1, tremendous difference in power now well happy! Went with a local company to me in Leeds called JC Remapping and he was spot on! Will get it on the Dyno in the next month or so :)

Been wanting an intake for months and finally got one! Fitted it, wasn't to bad just abit fiddly and oh my god it sounds immense, absolutely love it!

Before



Now



It's the ram air oversize for those interested, still can't get over the noise it makes!

Next job is to clean up the engine bay now the cover is off :)

The noise is very addictive. Best mod I have done on my by far.

Quick one, those who attended the meet may have noticed my headlight washer cap had fell off. Gutted but a new one came the other day from RPS. They come unpainted so decided to wrap them both gloss black for the time being.

Started off by cleaning both the caps with some APC


Then set about wrapping then, I've only ever wrapped the front seat badge on my car so I'm far from an expert.



And here is the finished result.



Not the best around the edges but not the worst job I suppose. Car looks better now just got to get the btcc jacking point cover sprayed now.





It's the little things sometimes :)

Spontaneously decided to paint the calipers yesterday, just red to freshen them up a little bit. I didn't get a pic of before but they were very dull and looking more of a pinky red (that red old corsas go) :lol: anyway a few coats of hammerite smooth red and it's much better.



And added a nice little touch ;)



High temperature sticker so hopefully won't bubble off the caliper.

Anyway it got really dark after the first one so did the other front one at keepmoat stadium car park, big lights and plenty of space to work :lol:

Here's how they look with the wheels on



Only did the fronts for now, I'll do the rears at some point soon :)

Intake, remap and res delete are the best mods for me, all together is amazing :)
Hi, the red delete. Is that remove the pre and post cars or the back box resonator?

On mine it was the box before the back box, also referred to as centre box
Ok, only had my car a week so still learning. Dose this allow more flow for the exhaust or a noise thing?

Won't make much difference in terms of flow, it'll be slightly less restrictive but it's mainly just a noise thing. It's a really good volume tbh

Enough of the little mods, finally a big (for me) mod! New wheels! thanks to @bigT's lcr for the smooth sale and absolutely loving the wheels, might even keep them Matt bronze as I'm debating having them refurbed gun metal grey.. anyway some better photos to come once the cars clean





Just needs lowering now ;)

Also lost the other side jacking cover on the skirt after just buying the other side :(

And fitted some new Bosch aerotwins which have came in handy with all this rain
