Welcome! Very clean car you have there, especially the engine bay! Be sure to get a tune when you do the exhaust as they can run lean without one, and you won't get the full benefits from the exhaust, it's also a good idea to upgrade your fuel pump to a walbro or dw300 at the same time. You will notice a huge difference after the exhaust and tune. Did you paint the inlet manifold, or was it already done when you bought the car?

Nice ride...Are you sure that is a 98 model.. It screams 99/00 model to me.. Front bar, airbag, rear spoiler, brakes etc...

Thats a MY99. Your coil pack on the engine is off centre, even the late MY98 with the twin airbags had them in the centre.

Also the steering wheel, and leather boot around shifter.

Biggest sign would be what AFM you're running. If it's the MY99 90mm type, replace it, replace it now...
