Thanks!, Will be sourcing some black center caps from Rupe later and painting the area's of my brake rotors where
the pads don't touch black. Just to make the Bronze Wheels and Red calipers stand out a bit more.

Wheel size would limit the amount of low alot. I have 1 finger between fender and tyre and i can fit my jack (140mm high) under. I suppose that's why i haven't had any cop attention. Even when being rbtd by hwp.

I told you I wasnt that low, I did raise it after the whole stretched wheel thing, to fit much fatter tyres

I can lower it 20mm in the front and prob 10mm in the back. But I know I will only rub when doing so.
I need stiffer springs in the back. Body work like proper flowing flares might be on the cards after I get it turbo'd.

Should probably update this.. been a bit lazy lol

Anyway, I have bought another SP20 mainly for the motor and to wreck, got it cheap because was a write off.

Other things have happened as well, first of all there was this little box with some super rare AutoExe goodies inside that I have now fitted to my car

Little box of happiness


Oooohhhh!


Aaaahhhh!


Rear Subframe down




Autoexe is much thicker than the OEM Mazda bracket


24mm hole had to be drilled to fit these brackets that were made up for the Autoexe set, After drilling the hole,
I thought that the hole was way too big, noticed that I wasnt able to drill a hole that big for the fronts.
But had a soultion!!


My solution was to grind the bracketry down with the bench grinder. Ground down the brackets for the
rear down 4mm for ease of getting it in the hole.


Right side rear brace on.


Left side rear brace on.

So since I ground down the rear bracketry down 4mm and I knew I wasnt able to drill a 24mm hole for the front bracing,
I had to grind the brackety down from 24mm to 16mm since the front of the chassis rail is much narrower than the rear.
Also there is less room above since the floor is directly above. The front required a 12mm hole drilled and then
had to be elongated by a dremmel to get the extra clearance.















Right front on.


Left front on.




There was a noticeable change in the front. Cant really tell if there is a difference in the rear arround town.
But get it out on a nice windy road and you can definitely feel the rear.

Nice !!

What did the turbo set up back ?

I was kinda thinking of the same but with a .78 rear, didn't know they did a .61 must be a new thing.

All up $1600, the rear housing options were fairly new when I purchased it

That second photo is great!
My old Peugeot 306 s16 used to do that and it was factory standard. Used to freak my mates out!
