'06 Corolla. Slowly but surly modding it a little at a time. Was going to put Bilsteins with H&R Race Springs on it BUT she wants some adjustability due to our winters (don't blame her at all). So now I have to unload those. Plus side is that I'm sure there is another Corolla running around wanting an awesome Bilstein/H&R setup.

Are the Bilsteins just as good as Koni yellows? I have a set on my wagon and ideally Id like to lower it but Im not to familiar with the Bilstein shocks.

I was thinking about going with the Eibach Pro kit

Quality wise Bilsteins are a better damper (unless Koni has stepped up the QC).whether they will handle a drop better is another story.

^ I agree. Based on my research, riding around different vehicles with different dampers, having them, etc. Bilsteins are damn hard to beat in terms of quality (ride, performance, overall awesomeness, etc.).

HOWEVER as mentioned several times across this forum and others, Bilsteins don't handle drops as well as Konis. It's not the say they can't, because they can, it really depends on the vehicle, drop amount, and spring combination.
One of the best combinations I've ever rode/driven on was Bilsteins with H&R Sport Springs (VW Rabbit of all things too ).

I honestly can't wait to get the KWs installed on her Corolla and see how they handle/feel. For a $2000 setup, they better be DAMN good.


And to keep the thread on track,

It may not make a ton of power but the fit and finish of Mugen products is spot on in my experience.

Pretty much anything from KW will ride like a dream.


My friend has a set of V2s on his Accord. One of just a few setups I'd trade in my Koni/GCs for.....although I wish they made a V3 for the chassis. I'd kill for a set of those.

Only if it's in the right car . Trying to squeeze a RHD intake into a LHD car proved problematic. I've got the stock box back in for now. But yeah, I've got Mugen's strut bars and coilovers in the car already, and they both were simple jobs - the suspension even rides almost like stock (they are made by the same company, after all, just spec'd higher) while still giving a very noticeable improvement in cornering.

What is in the way or not lining up?

Brake master cylinder reservoir. It's just barely in the way, but enough to cause a vibration in the pedals - either the intake box or the reservoir would rub away eventually. And because of the location of other parts in the bay that can't be modified, there's no wiggle room.

I'm debating shaving off a section of this lip that runs around the outside of the reservoir (I think it'll give me the clearance needed), but I don't know whether there's an indentation on the inside of it that I'd break through to. Might get a junkyard part to tear into and see what it can handle.

No, it's for the Accord. The CL is now going to stay mostly how it is with the exception of a new paint job and finishing my retrofit.

When I was planning on installing my stroked H22 in the Accord, I had Hondata S300 v3. After making the choice to go with the J-series, instead, I needed a different ECU. The engine is from one of my previous 2003 CLS6s, and it is a little unique in that it has hall effect sensors for the camshaft and crankshaft positions. The EMS series 2 doesn't behave well with those, so I chose the Infinity.

Bought this to resolve my weak wifi signal in my bedroom while streaming. Works like a charm and better than a wifi extender

I think I messed up. These HAVE to be reps...no way would I get all of this for less than USD 1k if they are genuine. The price was too good to be true. There's also no way that I would pay over USD1k for some gauges...

Are there any serial numbers or markings on them? If so you might inquire with Defi as to their authenticity,

Not sure yet as they are still on the boat from Thailand. Honestly, I'm not worried about their authenticity as they won't be going in a true race car. Just a street driven "fun" car. Even if they are remotely accurate, I'll be satisfied. They can always be modded and tweaked later on as well.

Here's hoping they arrive and are the real deal (or at least accurate as you said)

The Cassette deck just came today from Canada. It's a perfect match for the receiver I inherited from my grandfather. I love this old 70's audio equipment!
