Wow, what a steal for you mate. Looks very nice. The Type-R red interior is absolutely horrible....but I'd still have one
 
  Maybe a 172 Cup..
Re: 172 too civic type r

Billy bargain that mate. Keep for a couple of years, probably still get 3k for it..

Very cheap, why?
Mates rates bud , hes in the army so hardly uses it plus he needs quick cash for his new car. Done all the relevant checks alls good :)

On the exhaust front im liking the look of the spoon n1 but bet thats deafening

Great new purchase Dan! I'm picking up a EK9 Rx this Saturday. Fujitsubo RM01A is a nice system for the EP3.

Re: 172 too civic type r

Yeah that exhaust is good. I tried many and liked the cobra the best. That included the n1 rep with and without a silencer, the latter being ridiculous lol

The hks borders on track db mate, if that's what you fancy doing

The HKS system is a bit of a chav can, you can get spoon replica back boxes which are much quieter then the genuine one. That with an unsilenced b-pipe would be my choice. I'm over camarthen on Saturday to watch Rush if you want to have a nose around the new car :)

Re: 172 too civic type r

Nooooooooo. If you like hearing do not do that mate. I had one of those spoon reps and unsilenced bpipe on for a total of one day, seriously ott. Makes my track car seem quiet, honestly.

Ah I thought they were a fair bit quieter then the proper spoon exhausts. Do apologise, maybe a silenced b pipe is the way forward :)

Re: 172 too civic type r

Lol, they are ridiculous mate. I went through a stage of trying all sorts of exhausts. Either the cobra or the silenced bpipe and n1 rep backbox was the nicest
 
Re: 172 too civic type r

I had spoon n1 on my Jdm teg and I'm sure it fuked my lugs up my hearing has never been the same lol they are very loud!

Re: 172 too civic type r

Re: 172 too civic type r

I've tried the fujitstubo that looks standard, didnt like it, tailpipes were too big. What sound are you looking for?

Re: 172 too civic type r

Yeah I agree lol. Type-r-owners seems to be a nicer place :)
Nope that forum is s**t. You will get shot down big time for asking, best brakes, exhaust etc, dire forum. Ctro is miles better.

Re: 172 too civic type r

Agreed. I had the teg m and it was great. My only suggestion is get some money together and do what ever mods you want, exhaust, ik, manifold etc and invest in kpro etc. with out the map the only difference got will feel is in your head. Spend a load of money, obviously loads faster, it won't be. The map is 100% the key to these cars

Teg M was the best thing on my old one .

And the PRC inlet manifold .
