Yep that's my old engine man it suffered and still even while decommissioned gonna take it completly apart for bolts always come in handy.. specially since all bolts coincide. I remember I forced my B6 to 7 redline rpm vs. A hondakicked butt

Nice clean body. Personally, I'd switch up the rims. MX's seem to look better with a little less 'soft' looking wheels. The vents can lose it too. They look like teardrops or something. Not to mention your car has, and will continue to have with the BP, overcooling issues, so when you're sounding smart to your friends, you'll sound smarter if those vents aren't contradicting you.

BP > suspension > wheels. Gotta get your priorities straight or you'll be no better than the honda your poor little B6 took down :P

(Those vents looking are fake) my couzin put them on as a joke and the glue will unpaint my car so I don't want to mess it up until I can fix the paint job. What are u suggestion Ryan rims before suspension?

I like what Ryan said.

Focus on your swap................... If u get coil overs, you can do them in like 3-4 hours going slow. (I like 16' with 205/50/R16 or 215/45/R16)

I want a 4 cyl bp mx-3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post Re: Nano's 92 mx3 rs BP swap
Thanks.. so I've been doing a lot of thinking. Well my list on mods and the order I'm going to them are, (I'm going to try) OBX racing headers for EGT, full 2.5 repipe exhaust. I also want to get an intake anyone tried weapon R? Or know of something? Them cam gears from corksport (anyone know anything better or cheaper) KSPORT Full Coilovers this might happen before cam gears, rims not really wanting to change since I put brand new tires and got them aligned and all. So maybe in a year. I already have NRG quickrelease and Type R steering wheel. Gonna pick up hub any day. And then back to the drawing table.
Give me your suggestion really want my MX to be knocking.

Boo on expensive intakes. If you can't tell, I vote function over form.

Cam gears aren't useful unless you plan on on doing a lot of dyno time to dial them in.
