    Hi from Adelaide

    Hi All,

    I recently just bought myself a 2004 TS CDX sedan 1.8L (z18xe) and i was wondering what mods people would recommend.

    Welcome! @dutchy will advise fitting a 2litre turbo. I will recommend fitting a roll cage. But it all boils down to how it will be used, general rules apply. Intake, exhaust, cams & suspension.

    It's never going to be a rocket so just spend some money on suspension, exhaust, tyres and that would be about it mate. Not a lot of increased performance to be gained. I would indeed recommend to get an sri-t as Steffi suggested.

    I have a z18 as a race motor using a c16 computer in a corsa gsi shell. It is a heck of a lot of fun but in this case lightweight is the key. As a stock car i would look at bigger intakes and extractors, exhaust etc. cams, carbs and compression are the three cís of power. Everything else plays a supporting role.

    I think it's his daily driver Steffi, not a hill climb or track car
