That's providing he has a 1.8. If he has a 1.6 then there's more to it

Again something that was covered in a few of the threads, including links to part numbers.

but yea it's pretty straight forward, just unbolt and re-bolt up if you need any addvice or a hand just give us a bell man

you can put the sp20 rear lower control arms on if you want( there shorter ) but just a heep of extra work for (what i would call lesser gain) getting the bottem of the wheel inside the car body, mine has poke and then i just x-drilled my top hub bolt holl on the rear shock to allow me to put negitive camber on the rear wheels so the top of the tyre fits in the guardif your car is lowered

what wheels you planing on running?
Thanks man. I'll look into it - (FamiliaGTX). Not sure yet what wheels... But more than likely it will be a set of 17" or 18" Mazda factory wheels.

I'll try and get to the next meet..

Thanks for the helpful reply. Much appreciated.

Ok so on the way back from the JDMST yesterday when i got home i noticed the car making a bad noise, sorta sounds like the timing belt slapping the timing cover crossed with the noise a v6 commo makes when the harmonic balancer breaks and flops around
Great more money will look at it during the week and maybe fix it after work on friday if it's an easy/cheap fix, so stay tuned,
God i hope it cheap
Ke70 for the week it is gess its not all bad

Edit:
just hit me, sounds like the water pump shaft's come loose

nar just look like it's matching in the pic (wish it was the same)
now i just gotta get all the sp20 interrior so it matches better as it's darker then the astina interrior,

the dash will be fun but the peice that needs doing the most but it's not to bad as everything id the lighter grey so it give it the two tone look

Same as what I used on my dash. How does your lining feel now its dyed? I'm worried it will be crunchy rather than soft. The instructions said to use a comb over it as it was being sprayed. Is this what youdid? Looks great!

yer it's not to bad i didn't comb it but it's pretty good it's gone a little bit like dry paintish but not really if that makes sence, it's still soft and that but just ever so slightly dry,

i reackon if i was to comb it now it might brake it up a bit and make it nice and soft as it was originally but to be honest it's not that bad i'm not even going to worry about it,

i love it

oh and azz don't freak out when you die the pillars and they look black black ( like i did) it'll look good once in the car, i was worryed ay thats why i said i wasn't happy with it but it'll do for now untill i put in in then it just looked unreal
