  1. Well, actually I don't know what intake kit works better on the 350 but in my opinion they're worth the money only if you're doing a serious NA build (exactly the same experience I had: a friend with an EVO 4 who went for a cheap one). The stock intake is already quite good. The Cobra exhaust is good and sounds amazing, but have it installed in a garage that knows the business because sometimes the coupling flanges are not perfectly flat and may need a bit of adjustment, and use thick gaskets (I had an engine warning light after 300 miles and my local garage did 2 lambda resets with no result and wanted to start replacing the sensors. Then I've taken it to the guys at Horsham developments who took 30 seconds to find out that it was a leak of gases for the aforementioned reasons).
  2. Hello and welcome. I would skip the intake kit for now, unless you're going for a very good one because there is a lot of cheap and middle-range stuff on the market that look awesome but lacks a proper heat insulation and you can end up with the engine breathing warmer air than with the stock one, with loss of power instead of gain. I've got the same car as you, a 04 DE, and fitted a Cobra sport exhaust with hi-flow cats and installed a plenum spacer, a k&n panel filter and put in the airbox the velocity stack that comes factory fitted on rev-up and HR models, plus obviously a remap. The car gained a bit of peak hp (the dynamometer shows 280hp at the flywheel but my car's got 144K on the clock, in your case should be some more) but you'll feel the real difference in the middle range, there it gained 18-20 hp.

    Hello. As many of you did, I have experienced a pair of small rust bits on the rear arch (driver side). They've been filed and filled and for now seem to be fine but I was considering to solve the problem once for all replacing the quarter panels with others made in GRP or composite. Does anybody know a workshop that sells and can install them? (I've already contacted Meduza but their ones are actually an extension for a body kit) I'm based in Hampshire but if necessary I can travel a bit.
  4. No the car has got a wrap, the original colour is silver. It's a firmament blue, the guys who applied it said it's "Hexis firmament blue gloss xx20033b".
  5. Hello to everybody. I'm a new member from the south (Hampshire) who recently moved from offroaders to sportscars and that's my 16-years-old zed (purchased 1 year ago).
