        Wow! That looks awesome! I'd de-chrome the trim above the side windows but other than that it looks spot on.

                  As I have an Enhanced Performance exhaust system, the exhaust hits the body.
                  Powerflex now make replacement rear exhaust mounts, these are a lot stiffer than the OE ones also after a few years the rubber detaches from the metal mounts.
                  I fitted powerflex engine mount as well.

                      Hello mate
                      are these j hooks and pads alot better than the standard brembos?

                        In my opinion, yes. I did not think that the Ferodo DS2500 pads were going to make a big difference. But you press the pedal and they bite, very sharp.
                        I also had Goodridge brake lines fitted as well.

                          What system is this buddy? And what tips do you have on? 👍

                            This is the Enhanced performance system. This is it, as the pipes are behind the rear bumper.
                            Also get the powerflex mounts as well.

                                An update on my J.
                                It's currently waiting for forged pistons and con rods. As it cracked a piston, possibly due to knocking.
