It all depends how much you want to spend, for cheapness and if your current heads are ok the option 2.

If I went with option 3 would I be able to fit a newage sti intercooler? or would there still not be enough room just like my current set up (v2)?
 
The lad reckons option 3 will be a direct fit into any classic from v1-4, is this correct?
 
What does the USDm part of "ej25 USDm semi closed deck" mean?
 
To be honest option 1 is too expensive but id be willing to barter the price on option 3

Ahhhh the pennies dropped lol

Ive edited the price at the top as I had got it wrong and he reckons its a direct fit into my car so hopefully ill be going with this option (no.3)

just waiting for word back from andy kindon

the 2.5 will be much better for torque so fingers crossed

Just keeping my v4 sti top mount for time being then might go for fmi and billet wheel in a years time or so mate. Would a newage sti tmi fit now with the newage block or would the inlet still be in the same position = not enough room  Crying or Very sad 

Just looking forward to getting it back and not having to worry about it.
