My eg hatch

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, swapped the eg coupe I had with a mate of mine. Always wanted a hatch and his was a very clean example with some nice minor mods. It's a lsi model so it's only a 1.5. I still have my rebuilt b18c4 but need to source a p28 ecu, vti dash loom, gearbox shafts and linkage to complete the swap. The car came with some bandedsteels that is made. Iv since swapped them for some rota slips,removed some stickers and fitted a standard back box.

It's not bad tbh! I was surprised at how nippy the d16z6 was in the coupe I had. Now have a lot more respect for the old single cams lol pretty good on fuel and it's cheaper tax too. Need to source some mb6 front lcas and arb as the lsi model comes with no arbs.

Yeah I follow those guys on instagram. One has a carnival yellow eg6 now and the one on the left is a kinda pink colour now.

 

Gave the car a well deserved clean and cut my rear bumper.

Wanted to do it on the past few cars iv had but never had the balls lol the bumpers not in the best condition so why not give it a go. I just used an angle grinder. Ran a string line then used some 3m blue tape as a cutting guide.

 

theres actually a video on YouTube about the advantages. The drove with a bumper,without and a cut bumper. Cut bumper gave better mpg, thus less drag. Not sure il notice a big difference with my 90bhp lol but I like the look.

Must admit it has always seemed odd to have a big wind catcher at the back of the car, and I've often wondered about one of those diffuser trays for a different car to guide the air around and under the bumper.
