Eventually have it as a weekend canyon carver/autox and occasional track day and to dial it in to my liking, I'd like to get as close to 50/50 weight distribution as I can. I'd like to eventually do full suspension and maybe some bigger brakes. 35/65 power split would be cool. I'd like to repaint it, same color just respray. A quicker steering rack would be nice as well as some shorter gearing (type RA gearsets). Standalone ecu eventually and maybe some larger injectors. And now that you brought up ITBs I'm getting the bug to look into that some more now that there's a few more guys doing it on their builds. (not necessarily in that order)
cool to keep things NA. curious as to what your daily MPG is on an NA setup.
if you want to pare down the weight, look into JDM bumper supports. the weight savings (safety aside) is about 80 pounds if you do front and rear. you can even order them from the US dealerships if they are still available. I ordered rear one about 2 months ago.
A smaller aftermarket steering wheel will help a lot as far as feeling quicker steering and you lose a small amount of weight too by getting rid of the airbag.
IIRC the bumper supports aren't that much of a true safety issue. The only reason why the american one's are so much heavier are because they have to comply with regulations that have to withstand a fender bender.
The MPG is No bueno lol, I was really surprised at first at how quickly I was watching the needle go down on my fuel gauge, then again I was pressing on the go pedal a lot (still am). I'll have to do a thorough test on the mpg and get back to you on it though.
And thanks! I'll look into that some more, kind of partial to the oem nardi wheel.
