Yes I to wanted a xrox bar but was told we don't make them for your model however if you would like to loan us your vehicle we can manufacture one for you, only problem is I live in NSW Xrox bars are manufactured in WA. So I manufactured my own winch mounts and decided to keep the original bumper. Might look at manufacturing a tube bar at a later date.

Yer mate it's one off eBay for a civic, helped with the egt temps, dropped about 50 degrees and I gained an extra pound of boost.

I just bought it and made it fit, only had to make couple brackets and cut the pipes around. I'll post some pics if I've got em mate.

Brackets on top, angle on the bottom.

2 too 3inch reducer, i am thinking of making it 3 inch all the way to the motor but have to reduce it back anyway to fit onto the housing so no real point.

My favourite picture of it. Mazda POWER.

Field testing.

Anyway id do it if i were you because its only going to help get cool air to your motor, after ive been driving mine one side is hot to the touch, other is cold as. ;)

Yer good, boost is at 16, bigger intercooler, 3 inch exhaust with a 12 inch hot dog, custom air box with k&n pod filter.

I suppose it goes better than standard I haven't been out with a standard one to see, I dragged my mate in his 2008 ford ranger 3 litre to about 150 and I pulled away by prob 2 car lenghs

Have you noticed any engine temperature drop with the new intercooler installed and have you noticed any more or less turbo lag ?

My temp gauge I haven seen move since I've had it, I've towed the jet ski and ute with prob 200/250kg in it up few big hills at around 120kmph and it didn't move. Pyro went to 550/600 but I back off when gets to that.

Boost comes in at 1200ish full at 1850 odd. Need more power but I don't no how to adjust the fuel pump I have read heaps but don't understand it ha ha
