    Should have bought an ST, not a zetec s. So don't blame you going back to the C2! That's my fav c2 colour too.

    Yeah, they aren't the fastest car in the world. I went from a 1.4 C2 to an ST so was fine for me. But that's my point, you went from a GT to a Zetec S that must have felt like a brick in comparison. If you went to an ST it wouldn't have been so bad.

    yh i know what you mean the st is a nice car but i think id have to drive one and decide for myself as it is a c2's rival and see the comparison between them both

    Good ideas. Should bring the code up to around 160hp. I've got mine sitting at 135 and that's just induction kit and remap. Didn't want to go more than that as really I haven't changed too much. I'll be sorting out the manifold and then letting Cituning do the rest. Hopefully I'll be running well 160ish. Kick the ass outta ST then lol
    Have an idea for exhaust?

    Well I've shown the Ashley and sportex mani to a chap who works for a company that designs race system and he said the Ashley looks the best. All the pipes look the same length and that's what you want to look for.
    I'm not good on coilovers to be honest buddy. Im sure someone on here will know. I'm just in the initial deciding what ones to go for and how low phase. Thinking 30mm.

    hmmm might be a full ashley then and then when ive got a bit of extra cash buy a sports cat and get it welded on and if i do get coilovers id want some decent ones like ap's of highsports but i might just go for lowering springs and sports shocks might be a better option and drop it about around 40 or 50 mm and got my back 3 windows tinted limo black today, looks a lot better

    Yea I'm gonna do Ashley mani and sports cat. Issue is I can do the mani myself but I'll need to get someone to do the cat which is annoying.
    With the lowering how would lower springs affect the handling? I've hard mixed reviews and some scary horror stories on lowering springs which is why I've defaulted to just looking at coilovers. Only thing there is, what brands are decent and which are shit?
    Yea I'm toying with idea of gettin. The rear windows tinted but I'm wanting to spend money on the performance side of things first. I think I'm happy at the moment with the looks. Need to tidy the wheels up though. Toying with just getting aftermarket 17x8 alloys.

    yh same i can do the mani but not the welding with the sports cat and some people like coilovers and some people dont but personally i think lowering springs might be better aslong as you buy sports shocks with them and a decent make(h&r, eibach etc.)and ive heard that coilovers eat the top mounts every few months but you dont know till you try yourself.
