starting from scratch..

hi everybody,
i'm new to this forum thing. been driving a second gen for about a year now and i'm really pleased with it other than the interior leak through the firewall i had to troubleshoot. other than wrapping my own ride and adding a bullybar, and re-routing the air intake to the bottom of the bumper to draw cool air, it's pretty stock. some peeps have posted chip mods and turbo setups.. i'm very interested in some mods that are reliable and effective. it makes sense to go exhaust next as the stock one looks pinched and restrictive.. anybody have some knowledgeable advice? especially if u have before and after dyno results..
thanks in advance, that would b helpfull and appreciated.. here is a pic:

Welcome! Nice ride... How about a high level brake light? Can't give you any advice on your requests...

i actually replaced the reflectors with led lights from princess auto, they fit flush with the bumper and was a simple quick install that provides good visibility. i am really looking for reliable performance at this moment..
if i find a good kit i might consider..
cheers!

Sitting in traffic queues the other day I was thinking about putting a couple of leds behind the reflectors in the bumper quarters. Since a reflector is a legal requirement I'd be wary of removing that to fit leds. Surely the red lens of the reflector must be translucent - maybe with a foil reflector on the reverse but the leds could be flush mounted in the cutout (against the back of the reflector) and that cut to allow the light through but maintain the integrity of the reflectiveness.

Just a thought..

Paul
