    Wow mate that looks nice as! Top job. Did you paint the car yourself? Internationals look great on any car. Thats why you pay so much for them

    Okay i can but my engine bay is an embarrassment.
    I've just done the bottom half white because i added that pvc pipe to it which was white and would have looked odd.

    Thanks dude The number plate PHATVN is taken by someone else so bummer

    About the air box i have both VS supercharged CAI as well as the extra pipe I'm adding. What I'm doing is exactly the same as Surfwagons car. However i don't think the modification of the air box in that fashion is legal though.

    I would rather do this all as i hate pods sitting in the corner sucking in hot air.
