    • That'll be what I was thinking of then I knew one of them advertised a STI tune as well.   That's the classic hesitation most of us have had. The easy fix is to swap the vac lines for the BPV and the fuel pressure reg so that the reg gets it’s source from the centre of the manifold and the BPV can use the one on the cylinder 4 runner. The one by cylinder 4 fluctuates a bit with valves opening and closing constantly so moving the vac reference to the centre seems to help the situation sometimes.   This article mentions it can cause AF correction one to be off but towards positive rather than negative like yours is.   https://www.cobbtuning.com/2008-sti-fuel-pressure-regulator-kit-update-technical-overview/
    • A few more little bits installed on the shortblock. Currently working out the wastegate setup. Using a single turbosmart 50mm gate with a divider to keep the twin scroll working how it should. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • This trooper... rocking no mufflers at all. Sounds like absolute farting crap.  
    • I'll always go for the manual rental car... That way if the "upgrade" is into a car that's not (probably a CVT), you can bargin your way up.   I will say that modern cars with electronic power steering are over assisted. I liked how light the steering was in my 02 Legacy - not too light, but not so heavy you needed some sort of effort. It was very Goldilocks  like. Will admit the steering in my Mazda ain't bad for what it is though - more expensive cars do it better, but Mazda are the pick of the bunch for the mid-tier Japanese cars in my opinion.
    • From memory I think the austalian model tbsti did have a little bit difference in the ECU adding a few KW. These JDM ones should be stock standard.    Have cleaned the MAF sensor, have used another one as well. Cleaned entire intake area as well. Previous owner had a new airfilter put on, looks like the standard OEM one.  Have used the CRC intake cleaner today, will see if that makes any difference.    Trying to relate this to if its maybe causing the slight stutter/hesitation at light throttle which occurs at exactly 2,800rpm in 1st, 2nd and 3rd gear.
