Re: My Piazza 2 - UK edition

Yeah totally agree about the forum being a good central place to lay out your work in one place. I love being able to put down the finer details for the benefit of other members if interested. Keep going with the progress updates and pics. You may need to consider an aftermarket ECU (or mega squirt ...

Re: My Piazza 2 - UK edition

Thanks for the update, and a forum like this allows you to go more granular if you want. I’m really liking the extra gear, that’s some serious bolt-on kit. Did the exhaust and intake plenum come from Australia? Tell me more about the turbo too 😍

Re: Piazza_man project

Been meaning to add some more info and details on the custom airbox work that I designed and made nearly 3 years ago. Sharing in case someone else wants to do the same, or at the very least inspire to do something a little bit different. My car was already equipped with an exposed conical high-flow ...

Re: Piazza_man project

Recently upgraded/converted my instrument cluster and side pods illumination from incandescent to LED. There are a number of colour choices available these days and the idea is to reduce the overall battery voltage load with more efficient, brighter and less voltage load on the system. I find the pr...

Re: Piazza_man project

Due for another update I guess. As per my Facebook posts a few months ago I created exact reproduction artwork for waterslide decals to replace the faded icons on the pod switches. In each set I have included extra (spare) symbols in case you ruin any when attempting to apply them. As the decals are...

Re: My Piazza 2 - UK edition

You can always do what some others have done through this forum, and convert from auto to manual. It may be something worth considering. IPTOC has spare manual gearboxes, parts and the knowledge to help you if decide to go down this route.

Re: Suspension Specs.

Thanks for the detailed write-up twocan. Brilliant stuff. Although my car is lowered I’ve been thinking about redoing the rears as they are loose and kind of want to fall out when jacked up. Maybe slightly thicker rubber/nolathane pads to close the gap, but haven’t found anything yet.
