just a note about the R1 on 3 cylinders bike engines hate it if you wet the plugs they are so tiny that once wet they short out right up inside the plug and are basically shot try fitting new plugs ans 9 times out of 10 that will fix it

I think I may need all of these.... 215/50/13's hehe

And some picts of the engine in the frame. Install was simple. This is a real quality kit everything in place. Just missing a few parts that will be here this week (I hope) then the test fit for the frame in the car. The manifold is being fabricated and the intercooler is on the way.

Your looking at a K20Z1 with BDL 70mm throttle Body/ BDL Vacuume spacer/ BDL Fuel rail with return. What you dont see is the Quaife LSD, Hondata Kpro and all the aeromotive filters pumps and the TURBO....stay tuned.

Graet pics so far but you may struggle to get those tyres under your arches and have full suspension travel, you may end up running your arches really high up the body to compensate as they are really high on the sidewalls but the rolling diameter will help with the top speed and getting some traction :P

good luck...........

Cheers

Wheels and brakes are in. The red line indicates 1.5". How much further do I need to cut these to fit?

I think it all depends on how you set the car up. I had to sit the caron the floor, around about the height i wanted the suspension. then trimmed bit by bit. A fair old amount needs to be removed from the front part pf the arch as the wheels fouls at that point more than anywhere else

Tell me those wheels aren't on properly at the back!?

Or are they a different size to the front? As in a different offset/width?

Nice thread by the way...
