Thanks man but I need a new Harness to plug my ECU (my harness is OBD2A and my car needs OBD2B) and also the air box is made for RHD car and doesn't fit very well on my car!!

I am a total noob on hondas b series but isnt it like the K-series that sits on the same side of the engine regardless whether it is RHD or LHD?

The Box is the same but the Brackets are different so I just need the right brackets but now that ARC is no more it's kinda hard to find!!!

One more thing is that the ECU I have has not the right harness (OBD2A and mine is OBD2B)

Wow, clean car. It's hard to find a white EK4 in Australia. I've been planning to sell my EK1 for an EK4. so jealous. Crazy how it's facelifted as well, Australia always misses out!

Yeah but you guys have:
-R34 GT-R
-RX-7
-UTE (love them!!)
-HFV
-FPV
-RX-3

All these and many others are really nice!!!!


Did you swap out that ARC airbox for that power chamber thing... ARC so baller spec lol

Yep because the box was made for RHD and it hurted me to modify it to fit my LHD car... I also have to fit an air funnel to feed the power chamber!!

Thanks for all the replies hope I can post some fresh news soon!!!!

Nice man! I've been to NC & I can't recall seeing any modified cars! Very neat :)

Not much modified cars cause it cost a lot!!!!

small update:

I think it's time to change front tires:

http://imageshack.us/a/img5/4435/jed5.jpg

so went for 2 yoko's R1 for the front and also changed rear for some Nexen N6000. Don't know what to think about Nexen but as I'm on budget (maybe selling the car in a few months) not time to waste money!!!

there won't be big update on my car as there may have a BIG change!! will keep you informed!!
