Thats slightly annoying about those bits, doesnt look like Im going to have anything the way I want it on my car!
Your using the VTEC kit i guess? What are you doing about the exhaust? I have the one from the Volvo kit but it only has one silencer on it (same as the vtec I think) so theres no way thats going to meet 99db, or the emissions. Ive looked at active exhaust valves and db killers/extras silencers but dont know how I can fit all that behind the boot lid. Do you have to have a cat aswell or just get it down to the emissions stated?
By the way Im using a steel shell, probably keeping it steel fronted aswell.
you need a cat for the emissions test. it was very hard to get the car to pass the noise tests. remember about the intake noise, direct it away from the back and lag the pipe work from the filter. the boot lid will need heat shield as will the fuel tank from the rad..
from what i remember it did need a steering lock, and cancelling indicators. i think Car builder solutions have something that can be adapted for the task.
