  1. Hooooooly crap.. that is the cleanest build i've ever seen. Wow! Awesome lunch time read! Thanks for sharing
  2. Yes! Finally a date I can make. Will be there @4G63B8 @BeastGRB keens?
  3. Hmmm sounding like a no go for spacers tbh. Maybe i'll just live with it
  4. What about the hubcentric type ones like these:
  5. Resurrecting an old thread. Thinking of getting some 10mm hubcentric spacers for the 2011 STI. Just to get the factory wheels to sit a bit more flush. I've always said to myself i'd never buy spacers from what i've heard etc. But forking out 3k for new wheels and tyres is something i wont be able to do for a long long time. Would 10mm hubcentric spacers be safe? Any issues with wheel balance, running true etc? I have zero experience with spacers
  6. Balls. Gonna need a big jerry can looks like..
  7. Hey guys, I'm driving up from Christchurch to Picton in a couple weeks (7th October), and guessing i can't use the Kaikoura route. Looks like there's no BP 98 stations on the inland route. https://imgur.com/a/Bg6jm Anyone know of Mobil Stations selling 98 on route linked above? Haven't had much luck with the Mobil website
  8. Thanks guys, this has been really helpful! So the bottom line is i may be able to get my hands on a 2011 sedan GVB STI for maybe 30k ish (im hoping under if a miracle happens). Pretty confident i can sell my car for a good price, dealer offered me 21k, so hopefully should be able to get 23k ish if i sell it myself. Is it worth it? Considering the mods and performance i have out of my 2003 STI? The GVB will be pretty much stock apart from exhaust i think. Also a side question, does anyone know what turbo is in the JDM 2011 GVB?
  9. so chassis on the GVB (2011) is similar to GD? Only improvements are to the VAB?
  10. Really!? 8 Years apart and no changes. Maybe going for the JDM 2.0L. Wonder the engine will be as strong as my version 8 sti? Things i've noticed compared to USDM No visible cruise control or steering wheel buttons (wonder if i can get one installed) Apparently no proper sound system or GPS etc No speakers adjacent to mirror. Still JDM ftw right? @BeastGRB
  11. Any idea what the engine components / turbo is like for the 2011 JDM STI? After doing more research pretty sure it is a EJ207 as well. @evowrx
  12. Question for those that know about the GVBs. What engine does the 2011 STI sedan (JDM) have? Still the EJ207 semi forged etc? I'm not very learned on this subject
  13. Just a word of caution. You cant install the 3-port without a tune. Its a completely different way of setting up boost on our cars. Stock there is a boost pill and a 2 port solenoid system. Quite different wastegate table settings when tuning.. Also if you want a before and after dyno chart, you'll have to run your standard 2-port on the dyno first. Food for thought
  14. Im in two minds about the whole thing. Realistically if i sell it, i wont be able to get something newer that has been as well maintained and modded and tuned etc. So maybe i should just save for the turbo upgrade.. lol I took the car for a drive around the Hunua gorge after the service and it felt amazing. Might have made me change my mind. I still haven't tracked it yet. Will aim to try get down to Puke soon. Also checked out a 37k GRB (imported) and it drove like balls. Prolly needed some work done to it, but still. We spend a lot of money getting our cars mint then sell it.. Probably a waste. A positive was they offered 21k for my car (dealer price). So could probably squeeze a bit more off the trademe's Bottom line - still haven't decided. Once I've saved like 5k, i'll decide whether to keep her or upgrade.
  15. Some good info there @BeastGRB thanks What do you guys think about the sedan 2012 GRB?
