    Default Pictures of some recent projects

    Hey guys,

    I thought I'd start posting some pics of some projects I have been working on and I will update this periodically.

    This is a 2007 Fit and this past weekend we installed a few parts on it:

    Cross Drilled/Slotted Rotors
    J's Racing Brake Pads
    T1R Stainless Steel Brake Lines
    T1R Front Sway Bar
    T1R Response Headers
    J's Racing Suspension







    next weekend we are installing the first Kraftwerk supercharger in Alberta on it hopefully in time for DTP!

    after that I will be working on this bad boy with the help of Alpine Autowerks, they will do the engine work and after I will drop it back in:

    the engine is removed in the pic.

    I guess but I would be very surprised if anything ill was to happen to that engine after the supercharger install, the KW kit is very very well put together and it's only 5 psi.

    I expect the engine to put down about 120-125 whp on a mustang dyno after.

    nice choice on the KW charger, I am not a Fit owner myself, but read up on FitFreak once a while... and that charger seems very very promising.

    I will hopefully have some pics and vids of the supercharger installed on that 2007 Fit fairly soon but for those that went to DTP this weekend, it was the blue Fit with the white Mugen NR wheels and the Mugen lip kit.

    It is now about as fast as a stock 4 door SI

    The owner plans to take it to the track in a few weeks to see what it will run, I can let you know when he goes.

    You were talking about testing at the track right?

    Yes the one with the grey Kraftwerks pipe going across the engine bay.

    The install was quite interesting with the limited space and the need to relocate some brake and a/c lights to clear enough room for the supercharger.

    Since it's one of about 10 Fits in North America with this kit installed right now we had to make a couple of trips to the hardware store as it was missing a few little pieces.

    I know the same dude with the KW kit, quite impressive being the first in probably Alberta with the KW kit and T1R coilovers (didn't fit thou). And he dropped a lot of nice parts into his Fit.

    The coilovers are J's racing and the fit was perfect you sure it's the same guy?

    I also did the install on the suspension

    Well he had T1R coilovers... then swapped to J's Showa suspension.

    You know... I just talked to him, and his car is your project hahaha

    Yeah that was me. I had the T1R Coils last year and they were just too rough on our roads. Had a lot of problems so I took them off and got the Eibach springs with stock struts. They didn't cut it either, but this J's suspension is doing the trick!

    Just finished up a B16 sirII swap into a 1997 4 door LX, the wiring was a bit tricky but we got everything figured out.

    Big thank you to Primer_Drift for coming down and helping out with those wiring issues!

    Pics up soon
