Just bought a mazda 2 as a supercharger/turbo project.

Need some advice though...

Single front wiper conversion ? ( tips, been done ? )
Rear half window tinting ( best colour, tint % ? ) 3dr
Custom Audio ( Boxes, upgrading standard speakers etc ? )
Front Splitter ?
Wheel Sizes ? Big & WIDE ( I should know this one but the car hasn't been delivered yet !! )

if you want a bit more to read here we go

I'm a Designer / Engineer and am building a toy to chew up up the Corsa's that seem to have come out of nowhere recently. But more importantly a homage to the likes of the old hot hatches of my day. The Engine, Cooling, Suspension, Brakes, Clutch and Manifold are the in for major overhaul, the Car itself is a 10,000 mile 1.3 petrol ( for now ... Evil chuckle ), complain if you like but it's the perfect canvas for a rebuild in my eyes !.

I welcome all your advice, opinions, facts and questions !

Hello & welcome...

Some of your info your after will be floating around on here, I am sure a few people will chip in with there hints and ideas...

Stick a Rotrex on there medium boost and an ECU re-flash.... zoom zoom.... or go for full tilt and stick the MPS engine in...

A few people have looked at the mazda 2 engines not sure of the model but some will slip straight in....

Pics when you get the car....  that the base model 74bhp ? got one of those up to 88bhp before the re-flash....
