    Vauxhall Corsa B Coilovers on a Nissan Micra K11

    Micra rear springs with corsa b rear shocks. However this thread is really old now. I've seen alot of people complain they give a really poor ride also the micra top mounts aren't strong enough for the added stress and break after a few months. Better just saving for a proper kit from matt...

    Nice K11 on 35K miles, shame about the high as a kite asking price £1100 in Bristol.

    I have a induction kit and straight pipe in place of the back box and it sounds amazing. I'm going to get a nosiemaker and remove the centre silencer though soon

    Franken-Mikey Build

    Theres a pcv valve in the rocker cover which vents pressure from the crankcase. Some people when fitting an induction kit just git a small filter but there's arguments that this doesn't actually allow the pcv to work correctly as the the air passing through the intake opens and close's the...
