she runs good ! the performance is noticeable. i've never brought it to the dyno or the track... it is just a fun car to drive now. to guess at HP / Tq it's in the range of 170HP / 220TQ.

Not a fan of the taller spoilers - I would have put a short height spoiler on it. Everything fits together well, especially the storm trooper colors and the wheels.

i've thought about doing a light tint on the tail lights with LED conversion. maybe by the end of the year.

Does anyone know where the OPs exhaust tip came from or maybe what size it is?

Blasirl, the exhaust tip are just an ebay universal tip. It was not the right diameter for our exhaust. i ended up cutting it to make it fit on. also, the factory exhaust has a turn down at the tip. i ended up cutting that out to have the exhaust come out the back. only works with the diffuser that i have on the car. ( sequence) the diffuser actually requires you to cut the rear bumper for the exhaust to come out.

the front lip is from the NEFD lip kit. and the rear diffuser is the sequence diffuser. i just googled the items and a few pages popped up, although the diffuser was out of stock.

i did a few more things over the past year or so. mostly just Riced it out more with cheap universal splitters and skirt extensions LOL.

however i did add the ZZP V3 turbo, Ported the intake manifold, BNR 60lbs injectors and ZZP coilpack. car runs around 23lbs of boost.

my plans for this spring / summer are
-ZZP valve springs ( i have them on hand)
-ZZP camshaft Stage 1 ( I have on hand)
--Coilovers that have been in my basement for 4 years. these are the cheap Blueline coilovers so i'm skeptical to install.
-Finally take it to the Dyno !

those of you that did the valve springs, any tips ? i have never touched the internals of an engine, but have done all of the work on the car my self. I do have the timing tool kit. but have yet to get the valve spring compressor.

anyways here are a couple Meh pics of the car in the garage.

elle court bien! la performance est perceptible. Je ne l'ai jamais amené sur le banc ou sur la piste ... c'est juste une voiture amusante à conduire maintenant. pour deviner HP / Tq, il est de l'ordre de 170HP / 220TQ.

surement plus rapide que la civic si 200 hp a 0-60 ,ratio transmission bien mieux étagé et final drive aussi,moi je vais acheter la chip 60 hp,de chip your car

Not sure I trust those chips for cars. Maybe they are better than it used to be. The tune is the way to go if you’re planing on doing many mods.
