    thanks mate. you've been very helpful.

    a mate of mine says his 1m differential makes a load of noise. and was wondering if mine has it too, cos it's relatively quiet.


    on the other hand, i'm going for the akra evo sys. read a lot about it already. any further insights welcome. Click here to enlarge

    possibly going for a german tune after the exos and then the air intake. not sure which air intake to go for at the moment. Gruppe M does take away low end torque.

    other options under consideration is lightened AP Racing Brakes and Rims.

    That would be all i reckon. quite an expensive project.

    I have been talking to a couple of workshops over the weekend, one offers a custom tune, and another general tune from the ESS.

    With the new exos, a tune is preferred to remove the CEL light issue, and also to harness the full benefits.

    Question is which tune, and what's been tried and tested.


    Coilovers not really considering at this point in time, i find the stock suspension to be good enough at the moment, plus I don't want to mess up the EDC..

    Never heard of it but if you are in Singapore and want a custom tune I guess your options are going to be a bit limited.

    indeed it is limited. hence i'm more tempted to go for the general tune.

    If you are limited in your custom tuning options go for a solid canned/general tune. You have options in that area.
