      fucking faggot

      Is the 2L the biggest motor on these things? That Mazda red looks like candy apple but without the fag.

          That looks surprisingly heterosexual, must be the pumped rear guards.

            haha yeah 2l is the biggest engine option, still slow but decent enough, just have to carry alot of speed into corners

                What do these weigh in comparison to a NA/NB?

                And what power are they getting from turbo ones now?

                    Looks good. Never knew that EDFC thing existed. What sort of $$$'s is that on top of coilovers?

                        Looks great, I might be convinced to replace the SE with one of these in years to come.

                        Quick question, why did you have to pull half the dash apart? Was it to fit the EDFC control unit?

                          Not a massive fan of the wheels (I think the silver makes em' look smaller than they are? Prob looks better irl) but fuck these are nice. As a Toyota fan I'll admit I prefer this to an 86.

                          When I'm actually able to have my own car again and give no fark for 4 seats, I can see myself in one of these.

                          Are they okay sizewise for those in the 6'2/3 height range?

                          Enjoy.

                            Looks great with the wheels and coilovers.

                            Interesting on a review of this vs the fiat version, they liked the damping better on the fiat and the Italian brother was a fair bit faster around a small track. But they preferred the linear power delivery of the NA 2L over the turbo 1.4. With the teins it might be the best of both worlds.

                              The engine has plenty of torque that's for sure!, don't have to rev the shit out of it, Yeah the wheels are on there for the time being until i decide on what to run,
                              yeah had to pull it all apart to get to the speed pulse sensor, but the instructions were for the wrong car lol
