    I was finally able to level this sucker, it is not hard at all.
    Material used, was a bit of foaming material from the lightweight battery.

    I did really like to do this one. Couldn’t stop thinking about to add one more layer in top of the downpipe, I felt it was stil naked and susbceptible to spread heat.

    It came out really, small trim, reusing original bolts and cover.

    Any feedback to provide on your lightweight battery after a few months?

    Been debating on changing to a lightweight battery but unsure about which product I should pick. Also if I really should since I don't daily drive my Type R.

    I purchased the shorai battery due to its weight but ended up selling mine because I didn't drive my car enough. From my understanding, if you don't move your car at least every 5 days, you're probably better off just sticking with the stock battery.

    Hi there.

    I do recommend Shorei battery, definitely it helps with unwanted weight on the car. Another one I have always like is Braille battery, I already had two of them, plus the customer service was very good when they replaced for me under warranty.

    Purchase, install & Maintenance has not been an issue for me.

    I just came back from road trip in Miami, Florida with that battery and NO ISSUES. I live in Chicago.
    Haven’t got any issues either: in the snow, hot weather A/C ON & traffic jams.


    They last about: two to three years and with a good Maintenance ( to turn it often) they don’t bring you problems. Just make sure to register your warranty.


    I hope this helps! :thumbsup:


    He is right, for a lightweight battery, you have to use it regularly, 4 days without crank and gradually the battery will under-perform. This will or should dictate to get one.

    btw. I was wondering how you were mounting your battery? I installed the shorai in mine for a few days and even utilizing all the included foam, it was not seated that well.

    I just used the foam only to correct the height – I didn’t surround the battery , this aligns exactly with the battery holder metal strap with same height as the OEM battery. So far the foam is good & no play yet.

    hey Fury, since you took off the scoop b4, do you see any possibility for water getting into spark plug area thru the big center hole n other smaller holes?? if so, should we plug those holes? i m getting concerned about corrosion ppl found in that area

    You just read my mind. After watched the video done by FlyingGato, I realized those wholes most likely let water pass to the top of the engine cover, agree. I am considering source flat rubber plugs for them, then later check after a test car wash, if the water residue still going in the same route.

    Found these on amazon, would they work?
    Wonder if they can take the heat though...

    Finally I’ve been able to take a moment and share this story..
    NIGHT FURY DOES MIAMI!!

    Preparation:

    For those who track or road trip their CTR’s.

    I used TRACK ARMOUR TAPE, instead of the regular Home Depot masking painter’s tape( green or Blu). And I have found a black masking tape that matches with the color of my car. This mostly for the black pearl owners. :D

    Tips: to apply, wash the car and put any type of wax that you want, when apply the tape, make sure is room temp.
