Hi All,

Please could the members' wisdom advise on what are worthwhile upgrades to the NA?

I had planned the Brembos & strut brace.

Excluding the engine & transmission, what else is worth swapping over from the 20VT to the 20NA, please?

Thank you smile

If you're putting Brembos on then you'll need the bigger 20VT wheels too I think.

Better exhaust.

Remap.

Maybe better springs/shocks.

Can't think of anything else.

(Some add a spider in the wing mirror for companionship) wink

Are you posting on an iPhone Smatt? Others have found that they double post all on their own.
