Coilover's installed *photos*

Hi all,

I wanted to share some of my progress. I bought some D2 36 way adjustable coil-overs from the states for my (Australian) Ford TX5 Turbo. I put stock wheels on to avoid rubbing. Hope you like -

Here is a photo of when I first got the car to outline the changes:





This is how the car currently looks:

Do you know if that steering wheel came in Mazdas? I'd love to get one of those... in blue.

THankyou mate, no I don't believe they did. If I find one i'd be happy to freight it to you keep in mind theres only a handful of this model in Melbourne.

I'm a bit concerned about the stance, my rear right wheel sits further in the guard than the left as you can see from the photos. Any ideas??

Thanks

Defect bait!

If you kept the breather lines and a pod air filter (suitably restrained) on the end of your "lose pipe" you'd at least have a chance of remaining legal.
It's not like it would take much effort either.

Theres no physical way to attach a pod in that position unless you cut. Pod filters are completely illegal in Melbourne anyhow.

Can I place the original breather lines back on even though they'll go to nowhere?

The one from the PCV should still go to the intake manifold, the other one can go to a fitting on your dose pipe.

Crazy, the wheels look exactly like USDM Escort GT wheels, but 5 lug.

“One thing I’ve noticed over the years is that if you drive into London at 6am, half of the cars on the roads are Porsches and Astons. Whereas if you go in at ten to nine, they’re all Renaults. Simple solution, then. You want a nice car? Get up earlier and do more work.”
