Sorry to bother you, I am mid vtec conversion (just about to order a subframe). I'm planning to also keep the 10" wheels and just wondered what subframe kit you were using?

Thanks :thumbsup:

That looks great, just a few questions:

1. How much is this all going to cost?
2. What kind of power will that be kicking out?
3. How easy is it to get hold of and fit subframes, etc?

Its just that I would really like to do this kind of thing in the near future.

Cheers

Hi mate i'm doing the same as Dan

1. How much is this all going to cost?.....................Depends how much you want to spend and spec the car at.
2. What kind of power will that be kicking out?............The B16a2 is about 170
3. How easy is it to get hold of and fit subframes, etc?.........Loads of companys out there make kits, Have a look for the like of watsons and allspeed
