Only done Rims (17's), Springs and NST Short Shifter so far. Was thinking of putting an exhaust but not really sure yet. My car was already tinted when i got it.

Did u installl the intake yourself lamdog? I've seen on most sites they say its for the 1.5L, but mines the YR 1.3L, wonder if they will work in mine.

i took the car to shop to do, bcos i do not have tools at home.
by the way, i have also got short shift kit and underdrive pulley on...
after installing underdrive pulley, the car seems to have more power than installing the intake. it is more noticeable.

i can let u to look at intake if u want :P i am free most of the time after work.
i also got the car tinted, the darkest legal tint, of cos, i wanted to have a darker tint, but i do not want to get pulled over.hahaaa

hey,
I installed it myself. my one is a single din dvd with a pop out screen.
You may need a dash kit which i bought from Strathfield. Its to fill out the sides of the deck.
Will get pics later.
