    Hi and welcome from Ayrshire

    You can find an ARB How 2 in that section, as well as the air box mod details.

    As for brakes it depends on what you want to go to and from at the minute but VXR is the next big upo for your car I suspect or a 4 post set up from Neo's?

    I am in fife as well but like to hide lol. I need to get drop links, arb bushes etc done (if i end up keeping the car). Not sure on the performance upgrades but think for brakes you would need to either upgrade size to the vxr 345mm discs or maybe go for a grooved standard size (314mm) maybe EBC or something. Mine is a 2.2 so i upgraded to the 314mm but think thats standard on yours.

    Front ARBs and drop links are really easy. Did mine a few weeks ago.

    Just follow the how2s on here (properly... don't do what I did and remove the wrong bolt from the front ARB brackets...)

    The haynes is usefull for torque settings and seeing where things are but you're better off following the procedures from the How2s.
