  1. I considered doing that, but ended up getting the chinese fuel rails and making brackets for my intake manifold (Can't recall what version it's off of, I think V4). seems to work alright after I patched up the leaks! Not exactly what you're asking for I know, but just an idea! O just made brackets up to bolt them in. then made up some parallel lines with an external FPR.
  2. Yup, we tested all that before putting the intercooler etc on, as we'd been having issues with the release bearing not actually clipping in. So we ensured it was fully seated and felt good. But we didn't think to actually test dis-engagement, as we wanted to do that with the motor running.
  3. So, we've been trying to sort the clutch change in @bigDnz's BE5, after many a pain in the ass situations, we finally have everything in. But one major problem left, the clutch won't actually disengage. The release bearing has definitely clicked in, and the pedal has been set with full throw. It feels fine, it feels like it's pulling the plate, but not enough to actually release it. Any suggestions on things to try? Somebody said to me to replace the rod in the slave with something longer?
  4. Yup if you have the headlights on (I believe only then) and wash the windscreen, they should pop out and spray as well.
  5. Yeah wanted something big that could comfortably tow the RS and not worry about weight limits etc. Non turbo 6. I knew if I got the turbo model I'd just want to modify it.... A friend has a G6E Turbo and it's just ludicrous, I absolutely love it, but yeah if I got one then the RS would never get any attention...
  6. Picked up a new tow vehicle for the Rally Car yesterday, the newest car I've owned by 12 years, and definitely the nicest car I've owned! 2008 Fairmont Ghia, nice leather interior, and more importantly it has a 2.3T tow bar on it
  7. Can confirm I never wired it up to detect the gears in the RA. Back when I had it in the FTO I also didn't have it picking up gears, and accidentally remote started: it in gear, at a petrol station, behind a police car... Yeah that didn't end too well.
  8. Looks really clean, nice buy!
  9. Yup that's all you need to do, if the 4 pin plug is already there, then it's all plug and play, if it's not there, then you need to run the two additional wires from the ECU. As soon as it's all plugged in, it'll just work
  10. Took the RS for a few laps at Levels Raceway for the 4 & Rotor South Island Champs, I think the pictures tell me I need to do a bit of suspension work....
  11. So here we go, It's definitely stock, and peaking at 22 or so. Dropping down to 12PSI in the top end, oh and Faaaar from running lean We're thinking we'll throw the new exhaust on when it turns up this wee (Invidia R400), maybe throw a new air filter at it, and then give it a quick tune. Thoughts?
  12. Does anybody know if this could be done on a 2008+ STI? I'm sure there's a way to track down the parts, but whether it's as straight forward as the legacy?
  13. It's got the Tomei sticker on the back, and a factory exhaust, but a very clean one, so I have a feeling it may have had an exhaust etc done back in Japan. the only "mod" so to day is the Blitz boost gauge, and that's it that I can see, engine bay looks 100% stock. Doesn't appear to be a spike, in 3rd gear+ once you're on it, it stays a very stable 1.5Bar. No apparent leaks etc. It's booked on the dyno on Friday to have it looked at, as we're more curious than anything, and just want to make sure it's not going to run lean or anything.
  14. Hey all, We just recently picked up a 2011 JDM GRB STI, see below. Does anybody know what boost they should run from stock, and what boost level per SI drive mode? I noticed on Intelligent mode, it boosts to 0.25 bar, and on S# it boost to 1.5Bar, is this stock for one of these? As I wasn't expecting quite so high boost! Cheers
