Yeah I will talk to GP Motor... Anita said someone used Swift Titanium spring with Teins... I must know more about that. Envy that you have the Endless stuff. AP racing I am getting is slightly cheaper calculating the postage. Do you need a spacer for clearance of your stock wheel?

Swift spring is widely used by many racing team in JPN and HKG, including ours! By the way, we are the winner of 2005 Macau CTM Cup The Endless kit we will install does not need any spacers.

I am planning to have Project Mu pad (with HC+) in the front that suits AP racing caliper, Project Mu rotor in the front (SCR-PRO), Project Mu HC+ for the rear with DBA rotor slotted.

We have not much experience with Project Mu, please let us know the result. I am sure they are pretty good.

I have stainless brake lines for the front that comes with the caliper but eventually I will change the brake and clutch line too.

It is a good a idea to do it for racing!

I do track at Wakefield. In fact the Nationals meet is in Wakefield. Last year I did a 1:14.8 to win the trophy. This year I think I need to do a 1:13 or better since everyone is getting more mods and familiar with the track. I am having semislick for those. I use Bridgestone RE55S.

The RE55S is a very very good choice, it's shame that we don't easily get it here.

Chu Hoi is very close to HK right? But I heard from Daniel that it cost $10K to race?
$20K can hire Wakefield for a day!

Yes, Choi Hung is in Sun Po Kong, KLN.

Yes, track days in HKG is not cheap at all. It is done like a holiday package with application document, accomdation, food and track hire. It is much more difficult than you think. We have done one this year www.eurospeedayhk.com. Tough organising but alot of fun indeed.


I will email him this link. There was once a guy from Macau having a Veilside kit too... his car is red and with a huge GT wing....

That's great! I would like to meet them here.

Cool, I will keep tracking of my inbox. I did check the oil level and it's seem ok. I've just changed the oil 2 weeks ago. Appox 1000km. For the Wide Pulley Kit, i love to order one as well. But does it really help in smoothing the ride and also the hp+? I've just look into all thread and their dyno result, it only push up the hp after around 100km/h. Looks like it as of no help in daily ride. Also, there seem to be quite a few negative comments on the forum as well.

Thanks for your help on the bodykit and I will wiat for your email. No rush!

Wow! the price on Zeal looks far off my budget and Koni really have oil leaking problem? Checked out the Teim comfort sport, is it newly developed? It's sound good and good price too. Let me think think sin... For sway bar, I was thinking about it too but I like to modify car one by one so I can really see the diff between this and that...... My wife gonna kill me if she see the car with all those things......

The pulley set will not increase hp but helps the engine rev up quicker but there is less load on the wheel, which works similar to a lightened flywheel. The negative is the alternator may not charge the battery as quick as it used to because of the underdrive crank pulley. However, I have been used under drive pulley on my other cars, it works fine. Let me know if you are still interested.

Thanks for your help on the bodykit and I will wiat for your email. No rush!

No problem, I should know pricing of the bodykit and Odyssey tomorrow.

Is your budget around HK$10,000? Tein Comfort Sport will work fine for street and you can install Tein's EDFC to control the suspension setting in your car. Anyway, I will find out pricing for both Tein CST and Zeal Function-X's. But before the suspension, you may consider installing the swaybar first, as you feel more of the effect than sport suspension.

Haa haa... Unless your better half is very sensative with your ride. Otherwise, all under body work like suspension, exhaust, ECU and intake should be OK, Right?

Ask the moderator....

Tein Mono Flex is looking good and coming out this month.

I am eagerly waiting to see what the Tein Super Racing can do.

Are you using Endless mini (compact) 6pot system kit? I heard from Endless USA that you need a 5mm spacer.??

Tein Mono Flex is how much? It is not going to be far from $10000. I got Tein Flex with EDFC for $11400.

I also suggest getting sway before changing the coilover. The stock suspension is very good and certainly good enough for track

Red face Ti exhaust

Hi Taka

This is the Ti exhaust I mentioned earlier. It offers 45% weight saving.

We ordered the 6 big pot from JPN Endless, there is no need for spacers.

Hang on big 6 pot... do you need 19" for these???

The Endless system the Endless offers is for 18"

Man I cannot have 19" - there is no slick made in 19"

I am keeping my AP order LOL.

Talking about wheels - how much is a Volks 18" x 8.5" Volks CE28N is selling there? How about the TE37?

This Ti exhaust will install for the turbo kit, running straight pipe. But for the NA version, we will offer standard cat. or high flow cat.

The Endless could run 355mm and 328mm disc, both could fit to 18" rim without hassles. Especially to rims like TE37 and CE28N, which is designed for big calipers.

As for the wheels, I have to do a price check for you.

Since Im from HK, thought I'd jump into this thread too...
Is getting autoexe parts from HK lot cheaper??
But even so... shipping is still a nightmare. :P

I have the project mu calipers, and you know, it DID NOT clear my 19" TE37s.. it really depends on offset. I had 19 x8.5 +43 before, I have now 17 x 9.0 +35 offset. now it clears. I would say about 3- 5mm clearance. not that much. hope this helps. :P

+43 may not clear.

It is really depends on the design of the spokes

Now I think I should get another set of Enkei RP 03 for track

Hmm I wonder where I can get a set of TE37 to try on

Try contact Super GT in Hong Kong, they offer very good pricing. However, you are right, shipping can be expensive. It is better to buy direct from JPN for you.

I believe it won't be much cheaper than dealers in AUS. However, I highly recommend you to contact my buddy Martin Notaras at www.bsmsport.com.au. He is the expert on racing brakes in Australia!

Thanks dude.

I already made contact with Ric Shaw in here and ordered a set. AUD$2500 with caliper CP6600, lines, brake pad (**** one) and spacer for stock wheels.

I also got Project mu, endless and Seido-Ya to make pad for me. Eventually I went for Project Mu since they have rotors for me as well.

Taka, please keep me posted with the Project Mu pads... I am very interested with its performance. Also, for the calipers, you can also consider CP5788, the best AP calipers for touring cars!
