S300 ECU swap

Just got a P28 ECU prep by HA Motorsports for the S300.  My Hondata S300 is working fine with my current ECU.  But there is a reason, why I decided to spend the money to get a professionally done P28 for the S300.

The reason for the swap is show in the pics below.

Old P28

Above is the picture of the board of the old P28 I was using.

Look closely and u will see the shoddy workmanship on the board. The soldering around the capacitors is really bad.  

To me it is like a time bomb, u never know when a circuit like this will fail!!

Antenna upgrade!

As the original radio antenna did give very good reception, so I did a search and came across a marine antenna that was suppose to give better reception.

 Got the marine antenna along with a extension.

This is the antenna installed.  There was a hole drilled previously for Melvin's DAB antenna so it saved the trouble of me having to drill a hole.

I assess through the back, removing the rubber seal and pulling down the roof lining a litter.

 The wires were ran down the side of the roof down to the A-Pillars

You get the idea how it was routed ;)

The result was that the reception was significantly better, I was able to pick up channels that I wasn't able to previously!  The antenna and extension cost me about SGD$75 due to international shipping cost, a worthwhile investment if u spend most of your time on the road or get stuck in traffic jams often ;)

EG6 Clear Headlights

Just a simple swap of headlights from the original to clear type and install the orange corner lights which I got from Amos :) . It does update the look of the car a bit
