The wrap will be enhanced with some very small changes, but bigger changes may be on the cards re the wheels and if I can make it happen then it's going to be :surprise: :grin2:
Is this real CF? If so where can I get one!!!!A few changes before AITP7 at the weekend. Had this intake pipe sat in the garage for a while, finally got around to fitting it today.
Also, finally added a little cosmetic touch I thought would be good for shows with some metallic silver and red vinyl lettering (For the keen eyed / OCD amongst you the word Coupe is missing an accent on the last e, so that needs to be added when I get around to it).
No, not real. I had the grilles done and would have been incredibly hard to get the intricacies of the grilles done in real CF or a wrap - best approach for the lot was hydrodipping.Is this real CF? If so where can I get one!!!!
:wink2: > :grin2:Looks like that was about ready Cuppa. You going stock or performance... or is that a daft question?!
Time for a new clutch...
How about some sound clips? I'm ready to hear some sex! I have the AWE track with non res dps and I'm in love with mine. Can't imagine yours! I get compliments all the time.@DML - got the car back today and need to run the clutch in for 500 miles, but it's obvious from initial feel the old clutch was way gone.
The car revs up much faster (lightweight flywheel in play here as combined weight saving from 20lbs to 15lbs).
Clucth grabs very well, no chatter, but needs to bed in as a little bit of shudder when trying to pull away slowly in 1st/reverse. Found by revving a little higher and not letting the clutch out as quick as old one sorted that though.
I expected the weight to be 20-25% more as advertised and possibly much more initially until bedded in, but not noticed much extra weight needed to depress the clutch at all (perhaps a sign of how bad my old one was as I had got used to having to push it to the floor).
So before I drove it I was expecting to be stalling it and lurching around and having to bulk up my left leg and after a day of driving around am happy so far. Will report back when have covered the 500 miles (city driving).
But, big grin time is the sound now.
Had the OEM downpipes and cats (+ cat pipes) replaced with straight through pipes from the headers and then moved the cats down to underneath the car. Also switched to race cats (100-cell).
I was worried was going to be too loud and potentially drone like hell. Am very very happy with the fabrication work JabbaSport have done here.
The new pipes and cats have enhanced the sound with the Capristo valves/flaps shut - the volume has only very slightly increased inside the cabin (still no drone) and has increased outside.
But with the valves/flaps open - my god - the sound is great outside (and a little louder inside, but more importantly still no drone). Lots of pops, burbles and farts now
Very happy now re the sound and hopefully the system can breathe a little better now and has taken the heat away from the engine bay.
Am expecting some photos from JabbaSport from the fabrication process so will post those up when I get them.
Whilst it was in I also had the front lower control arm bushings replaced with the 034Motorsport solid ones, plus had the rear diff mounts and carrier inserts they released recently.
Car now feels very sharp.
Jabba made some jigs so they can make more systems if people are interested in doing the same thing.
I think Jabba expect people to turn up and have it fitted rather than ship overseas as they custom make it to fit.re "Jabba made some jigs so they can make more systems if people are interested in doing the same thing."...
my I have contact info... for pricing and shipping to usa?
