Jamess new mx3

  • Welcome!
    Its definantly been dropped, about 30/40 mm!
    Nice looking SE!

  • polish up engine bay is an idea for you. and remove shoe box air filter. i have a knx. but other people are using the cai version from fordprobe store

  • sorry for sounding dum wahts a knx ?

  • You should definatly pull the old air box out and put it some form of induction kit. It's not that hard, this was the first mod I made to made car and I had very little knowledge of engines and no forum like this to go to for advice. Change it, I guarentee it will make you smile :D next up was a new exhaust system (cat back only tho cos I'm on a 98 plate :( )

    Gutting that you have a 95 plate tho. Means a KL-ZE swap would be a pain in the arse for you if you decided to go down that road :( I'm in the same boat tho, I've got a 98 that I've had for 5 years and I really want more power.

  • i think mine is posably the obd1 its an erly 95 and some of them are obd1

  • You should talk to Marco about this. He had the same thing with his 3. Thought it was OBDII cos of the the year then found out it was OBDI.

  • ok side view cuple mates said yeh looks 40 mm

  • ok any one know where i can fined a right hand drive piller mounted guage pod ?

  • ok new rear lights got for christmas woo with siver tech indercater bulbs so they dont show going to re wire them to drop fog and have 4 sides and brakes so gonna look cool new pic when i re wire them

  • ok couldent wate for it had to do it so hear she is

    and no more fried eggs now have multy led things

  • sidelights much better. rear lights look great! Black altezzas really suit white mx3s.

    I wonder does the opposite apply to black… I still cant decide whether to get chrome or black or CF altezza for my black beast. Some photoshopping may be required!

  • dont get the chromes for a black car i think they stand out too much, if i had a black one id get the smoked alltezzas

  • as james said chromes for a black one stands out too much and i think the cf ones are a bit tacky so go blacks or smoked then rewire them so you get all 4 lights i think they look much beter
    killed a vw corrado vr6 on bypass this morning lol

  • hay hypnoticstoat with the help of marco found out its a 93 so klze is going in woo (when i can fined one thats in my budget)

  • ok i might be able to get my hands on a ze
    30000 miles imported from japan engine and dalivary for £800 good deal ?

  • for just the straight neck engine? think jono got his for 750 with round neck manifold, but not sure if that was delivered. Im sure he can answer that. Seems ok price, is that nippon?

  • no not nippon some guy in london who imports stuf
    whats the straight neck or round neck manifold ?

  • well straight neck is what's normally on a klze. This mean the neck/throttle body pretty much runs straight into the battery, the ms8/curved neck/millenia? neck curves to the front more like our k8 engine.

    Tommy D managed the straight neck fine as have others with the battery in situ, it's just a bit tight. Personally I'll be going with the curved neck as I think it will flow better, allows more room and I like the look of it 8)

    Remember your k8 ecu isn't ideal for the ze, but can be chipped or you can use different jap ecu…

  • im not shore waht manifolds are on it
    if allelce fails i can use the k8s temporealy looking to get a millenia at some point
    and as for the ecu will use k8 till i can fined aford to get a ze one
    but will get ecu befor i put in the ze
