Wasn’t a must, just a preference to make it a little friendlier and more comfortable for daily driving. It is fully adjustable though so I can turn it on and off.

Update time.
Got some parts delivered by strider, Carbon lip, carbon midwing, Suzuki sport steering wheel and some adjustable toe bars. Got all them fitted up over the last week.
Sequential shifter arrived so I’ve been playing with that over the weekend trying to set it up and get cable adjustments right. Been a pita but finally got it sorted.
Shifter is branded Suzuki works karume, made by Ikeya Formula. It’s made for the 2005-2010 swift sport but seeing as that’s my running gear it suited me perfectly.
Been an expensive month and off to world time attack challenge this week so wont get much time on it over the next few weeks.
Also sourced some manually adjusted mirrors from a barina.

Will need a method to secure braided lines to replace E clips.
If "X" is an Unknown quantity, and a Spurt is a drip under pressure, then an "EXPERT" is an "Unknown Drip Under Pressure".
Why dont they just call it "Womenapause" instead.

Thinking about just welding some E-clips onto the toe bars. The brake lines I have are way too long so I’ll be shortening them anyway. Haven’t got that far yet.

Suzitech use 2 straps with a little bolt to join them together. Seems to work ok, nothing ripped off yet after several years.

Thanks answer.

Ahh nice! Thanks for the info, That shouldn’t be too hard to put together at all. I may even have those clamps in the shed.

Which drive shafts did you use out of the m16a box?
Also, you used sport hubs, can you use GTi ones?

You mentioned that the sport intake manifold wouldn't fit, but the ignis sport one clears. Do you know if any other manifold clear or are the choices itbs & ignis sport?

Custom & DMW made engine mounts solve the mounting.

Sport starter, alternator & selector cables
Stand alone ecu

Just building a mental picture of what's required.
Take 1 - Red 93' Mk3 XBE273
Take 2 - White 91' Mk2 AAR53Y
Take 3 - Black 95' GTi

Okay so driveshafts, drivers side is a gti shaft with the inner cv joint changed over to a swift sport one.
Passenger side shaft I’ve been told the 1.6 sedan shaft will work so that’s what I’ll be doing there.

Did manage to fit the swift sport manifold, once the mounts were in and the engine leaned forward it fit quite easily.

Mounts can be purchased by Southy one here. He’s made a complete mount kit which he will have for sale very soon.

The rest is sport starter, alternator, sport shifter cables with the sequential shifter.

Running a stand alone Link Monsoon g4+ ecu.

And just a few pics for updates.

Been a while, probably overdue for an update.
Got a new intake manifold to sort out the m16a sport throttle body facing up which was causing issues with intercooler pipe clearance.
Found a place called RZcrew who make manifolds to suit the swift sport and it has a conventional throttle body layout.
Sorted most of the intercooler piping which surprisingly most of it fit from the swift sport turbo kit I have.
Done a few small jobs here and there like securing brake lines, some fuel lines and a new fuel rail.

Really just waiting on some funds to finish up the exhaust and finishing up the wiring and getting a tune done.

Keen to see this thing go!

You need to stop buying rims to finish this thing off. :lol:

Also im not sure whats off on the pic of the engine but something seems like its on the piss? Carbon cam cover or the intake falls to the passenger side? Maybe it was the angle of the photo?

Looks neat either way!

Haha yeah impulse wheel purchases has stopped for now, actually trying to sell some!

Just looks a bit on the piss, carbon cover is just sitting there and the intake manifold angles down, it’s definitely straight.

Did you get more than one saucer wheel?

I have a set on one of my cars and even though they are retro they look great.

Nice build! Interested to see how it all goes.
I noticed you started with koni yellows and moved to Teins at the back. Much difference?

They’re just in there so it’s mobile, both the koni and tein are pretty well shagged so I’ll be getting some new suspension soon.
Only real update so far is I actually have a bonnet now, progress has been a bit slow with all this covid s**t going on.
Hoping to get back into it in the next few weeks.

Interested to see what you’re looking at suspension wise. I have to replace mine and was looking at the BC coil overs however, I have heard the spring rates are too soft in particular the rears.

Probably going to go with striders tein coilovers, I bought a set many years ago and they were great.

So, some big things have happened.
Firstly, bit the bullet and purchased some bc coilovers and got them fitted. Genuinely happy with the quality of them and have kept the standard spring rates they’ve supplied which are 4kg fronts and 5kg rears.
Hoping that’ll keep it a lot more street friendly.

Was having some dramas with my turbo setup as the turbo was facing an inconvenient way and I just couldn’t fit an intake past the radiator.
After some discussion I sent my turbo to Southy to make a new manifold to spin the turbo 180, complete exhaust system and an intake.
Ben has started the manifold and I’m absolutely stoked with how it looks.

Ordered a new ecu in the form of a Haltech Elite 1500 and I’m just waiting on that to be delivered so I can get stuck into it.

Few pics of the manifold in progress and how she sits with the new coilovers.

Bit of an update.
Has been a bit slow in the shed lately as life has been a bit busy. Southy finished up my entire exhaust system and got that fitted. Absolutely stoked with the result, everything fits perfect and looks even better.
Just about finished the fuel system, just waiting on some injectors to suit e85.
Had a group buy for some rear camber tops that have left me a bit stuck on jack stands in the shed but hopefully they’ll get here soon so I can get her on her feet again.

3 inch exhaust got mighty tight back here but Ben managed to squeeze it in. Can’t wait until this thing makes some noise.
Tip came up absolutely mint as well.

Hi Mate,

Nice Car!

I have a Suzuki Sport steering wheel and horn button just like yours. Has yours been signed by someone (?) Just curious.
