You've miss understood in what i stated. ALL the performance mods was 3900.00 This included Suspension upgrades, the Flywheel, Clutch, LSD and prototype rims from centerline These parts alone were over 2000.00. Which aren't touched by the JCW
kit. Also was able to create Custom roof decal, stripes, paint the interior, complete stereo system all under the 5000.00 JCW
price. But if you want just a quick break down on what i did to match JCW
15% pulley.. 440.00 / installed at Helix13
Supertrapp exhaust.. 150.00/ Ebay
installed exhaust.. 75.00 and a pack of beer / Econo Muffler
intake .. 20.00 for cone filter. then Modded the stock box similar to the way Dinan has done. (mine was first)
And thats it. Matched Performance of the JCW
for under $800.00.
So would i do that part again to match the JCW
kit.. in a heartbeat. The only DIY that i did was the airbox.. took about 20 mins
As for some of the rest.. I wont do another Roof decal like the one i did. i went blind trying to put all the DS checkers on that Bright White roof. For the front stripes from what i understand im still the only one with them.
Then comes the exhaust. For the intended purpose of the exhaust. Yes i would do it again. If the car was to be strictly a daily driver with added performace. Then no i would go with another type of exhuast. one that isnt as loud.
Rims are in the same manner. did i need to purchase Prototype rims 275.00 each Wieghing in at 11.7 lbs. Not really i could have bought a set that was 400.00 for all 4 with tires. then of course the rims wieghed 22 lbs each. Also for those reading the rims when i bought them were called Impulse.. but the production ones are called Storm and wiegh in at 16 lbs each. which can be purchased for 179.00 each. The stock rims and tires are very very heavy. just by going to a good LW rim and tire combo. The car itself will feel like you just put the JCW
kit in the car.
Suspension (so far): only done lowering springs by Racing Dynamic and tweaked the rear swaybar a bit. this is a YES to do over again.
Until we meet on the Road
Have fun, Be safe and Keep MOTOV8N
