    • Those fancy ones work really well... Got them on the shitbox, the festy and the falcooon. Work well enough for me to want a set for the Yazz.

          Sorry? Lol there was a pod on the car when I got it, that was one of the first things I removed and replace with factory.

          The stock intake on the CA has much less resonators than the SR intake so I still have most of the grunty sound.

              • I bought some more things!



                S13 turbo brakes! Excited to fit these. I saw a mate's S13 that had turbo brakes and noticed the size difference between the NA and Turbo brakes. The NA ones are laughable, the rear rotors have a larger diameter then the front, this causes the rears to work a bit harder it seems because whenever I've gone down a long downhill with a lot of braking I can smell the boiling hot rear brakes. No good!

                So swapping the front rotors, calipers and master cylinder should be all I need, prettysure the rear is the same on NA or Turbo. The NA front rotors are roughly 250mm and the turbo ones are 280mm a very noticeable size difference.

                Just gotta get these ones machined properly this time, new pads and paint the calipers Blaaaaaack!

                    • Today I decided to do the brake swap

                      Before



                      Painted the Callipers



                      Got the rotors machined and I painted them Here is a little comparison New/Old



                      Another before. They're so small!



                      Ran into a bit of a snag fitting them though, the backing plate is still too small, it can't even fit the caliper! So we chopped it up to fit alright but still protect from some dirt. You should be able to see the bits that were cut.



                      Chucked those suckers on with new pads too!



                      And after! Nothing fancy ofcourse they're only the turbo model brakes but maaaaaaaaan they're better and just look normal/right



                      I also chucked in a GKtech overflow bottle because they were on sale!



                      I also changed the brake master cylinder.

                      • Newer brakes are looking much better, I too am a fan of black calipers over red

                        It doesn't matter what kind of car you have, If you've put in the work, time, and money you deserve a little respect.

                        • Next brake upgrade will have to be R series R33 or R34 4pots and rotors/Brake cylinder (you can redrill the rotors to 4 stud or a good excuse to do a 5 stud conversion especially when your wheels are multi 4/5 stud

                          But looks good should be a nice upgrade
