  1. Here is the link I went off. I researched it all and purchased all the parts but never got to fitting the set up in the car. This should give you pretty clear instructions.
  2. I believe any v7 one will work. I think @Niran had a for sale listing with v7 master cylinder. Think he had a few other parts for the conversion that came out of his restore project. I sold my complete v7 intercooler conversion kit to the previous owner of his type R project.
  3. I cant locate the link I used but from memory the things you need to do are. Offset clutch cylinder or cut the stock reservoir down and clamp it back to cylinder. Modified mounting brackets. Longer turbo to intercooler hose. You need to shorten the hose from intercooler, to intake manifold so tmic can fit in between fire wall. Possibly need to run aftermarket bov, or make your own hose to recirc the stock v7 bov. V7 intercooler splitter, you will need to drill new mounting holes to make this fit your bonnet. May need to put some rubber on the gearbox pitch stop mount to stop intercooler from rubbing or rattling on it. I think that's mostly it.
  4. so engine still isn't in the car yet, am now considering the catch tank idea after a bit of research. Ideally i'd like something that is made to fit to retain a semi factory look, which it appears RCM are about the only guys that do a purpose built kit for the GC8, however it is expensive. I would be open to some ideas on what others have done in their GC8's, and where they have been fitted the tanks and what kits they have used etc.
  5. I have often thought about this. The easiest model for this would be a gc8 RA as they dont have ABS. It would give great potential to have a huge Snail with plenty of room and remain efficient with pipework.
  6. NST is one place i forgot about. the NST parts website doesn't seem to work. who is the contact there?
  7. ok, i'm not sure what i'm doing wrong but it is showing $100 shipping for two sway bar bush kits then another $40 shipping for roll centre kit.
  8. anyone out there know of any other places to get whiteline parts??? i don't seem to be getting anywhere with BNT on anything that isn't in stock. can't even get pricing or shipping costs on sway bar bushes that aren't stocked. starting to get a bit frustrated. The shipping costs on the sway bar bushes through that spares box joint is showing $55 for each part. which is a bit ridiculous.
  9. Not yet. I may make a plate up if it need to, or just un plug maf and leave it there, but that could look ugly. Ideal solution would be a pipe exactly the same as factory but with no port for maf. I visualize that looking the cleanest.
  10. Ordered Process West cold Air Intake kit from aussie. Not today but over the last few weeks finally started the assembly process of my V5 STI RA Ltd Restore project. After 2.5yrs the Suspension went in with complete new whiteline bushes through out and new top hats etc.... The Engine bay has been painted in colour and clear coat, and the underneath is completely sprayed in gravel gaurd.
  11. they don't do one for the GC8 though. they are to suit 2002 wrx and onwards.
  12. hi guys, i am getting closer to looking at getting on of these kits however i have some questions about how to delete my AFM. i will be tuning the car and hence won't need the AFM. However the P west kit is designed to fit in factory location so therefore it mounts to the stock AFM pipe that normally mounts to the airbox. i would like to containue to run it this way but i am trying to think of the tidiest way to get rid of the AFM. Is there anything like a blank plate available that would go over the mount where the AFM goes? or do i just leave it as is and not plug it in? interested to know what any of you have done in the past for this? cheers.
  13. Cool as. Does the stock wrx have yellow injectors.
  14. Hey guys, Just wondering if the 2001 bug eye wrx can be reflashed? Cheers
  15. I didnt know about the trade day. Yes I have so far replaced every bush in my car with the whiteline ones. Did the front essentials kit with the Anti lift kit and rear essentials kit which includes subframe, diff outrigger mounts and all trailing arms. Only whiteline things I havent done, is pitch stop mount, roll centre kit, gearbox shifter bushing, and sway bar links. How much was the shipping through spares box? Also did you have to pay tax and duty etc.
