  1. So is the general consensus that an 07 GTB 6S manual tuned to 100oct with a GS TMIC, Decat DP + 3” Catback Exhaust, GS 3Port BS, Intake (maybe not necessary) and a new OEM or AM Fuel Pump can safely make 200KW+? ... Without blowing the engine up etc. I just want a fast, reliable daily and that’s the only reason I’ve considered the Golf R too as no mods will be required haha. Im a little lost with the turbo talk sorry, would a OEM turbo do the trick or should I have to fine another?
  2. Cheers! I was on the NPD website just now and it’s confirmed that there’s one soon to be opened in Cromwell and it’ll have 100octane.....not 3 Parks but closer!! It was most def. your car that I saw too then 😁 @Andy_Mac Thanks! The Golf R is 199kw stock and 233Kw at Stage 1, I think that it’s ATW but I’d need to confirm that. I have the Repons already as I got it off a friend for $100 and set it to full re-circ on my auto. Nice to know the Perrin is trash as it’s cheaper than the GS TMIC so I had considered that first. In regards to a fuel pump, do you mean an aftermarket one or a own replacement? If it’s aftermarket would you suggest injectors too or is it overkill considering the stock turbo is small. Orrrr is there a better/bigger turbo to consider or is that pointless too. I imagine Id be happy with high 200s anyway as the more I think about the Golf R it’ll cost me an extra $10k after factoring in the upgrades on a 6S GTB manual. 161Ks is a worry though for modding but I guess I can make the car as bulletproof as possible prior
  3. @IZichard thank you that’ll be awesome if it’s possible, I’ll try and look into it a little more once I’ve made my mind up. I think I finally saw one of your cars last month too park around Ryhme & Reason area, do you have a small ClubSub sticker on your car? Also good to hear its not just me whos of the mindset of doing “petrol runs” haha, makes me feel a bit better, especially now there’s 100 octane in QT too. OK gents, let’s assume I buy the 6S Manual over the Golf R. Compared to my 5S Auto, if I transfer on to my new car/install the following, would I see vast gains compared to my Current car tuned to 95 (I want to say it feels only around 230 HP) Installed/modded onto a 6S manual GTB - - Subtech 2.5” DP (unless I find a 3”) - GS 3-Port BS - GS/Perrin TMIC - Invidia Q300 3” DP back system - GFB Repons + Lowered (aesthetic/handling I know) - Remapped to 98/100 octane I want to aim for high 200’s HP as the Golf R is around the 310HP mark with APR Stage 1 and to buy is $25K (111K’s) and only needs 98 fuel opposed to LGTB 6S $13.5K (161K’s) and with what I have already got and additional costs for the TMIC/Tune of say $2.5/3.K makes its $16.5K or $17.5K for anything else that may be advised by yourselves... @Andy_Mac I can afford either option but realistically should go down a wagon route being in Wanaka so I can put my roof box/bars on the new one before I sell the old one, alternatively I can buy a new foot pack for the one and do the same for the golf. My last cost effective option is to install the 3” exhaust I have with a TMIC and tune it to 100 octane and see how it performs then 😕 ?
  4. Thank you both! I’ll be looking into the OBD link cable most def. if I’m deciding to go ahead and stay in the Legacy space. @Andy_Mac I’ve just been told that Queenstown has 100 octane fuel at one of the petrol stations over there now, I’m guessing it’s one of the new ones by the airport. Would this fuel see a significant benefit to both auto/manuals? I’ve considered buying my fuel once a month now and getting 4/5 30 litre fuel tanks and filling them and keeping them in my storage u it if I did decide to go for a 98/100 octane tune I think at the moment getting a 6SP manual may be the better option and transferring most of my stuff over and then selling my old car, I don’t think the amount of lose on the two would be massive either, maybe $2/3k? Not sure what an Auto with 160K on it goes for without a little trade me research
  5. Morning all. i was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of some general engine health/maintence. My cars serviced within its recommended K’s etc but I was wondering if there is anything I can do/buy to clean inside my engine in terms of any carbon deposits etc. Ive seen that some places sell fluids that you can put straight into your system. Does anyone know of what would be best and if they do/don’t work? I recently put some injector cleaner in with my fuel which seemed to help/had a noticeable change but I’m wanting to know what more I can do? I’ve changed out my spark plugs and Ill be getting a compression test shortly too. The reason I ask is because I’m torn between keeping the car I have and making sure I can maintain it as best as possible but I also want more power at times and so I’m debating selling it and buying a APR stage 1 Golf R or the same car but the 6SP manual (currently own an auto) The BP5 is a little more practical though living in Wanaka. When I got my car tuned there was a bit of knock and so it limited the tune. I currently have a GS 3 port boost solenoid, Subtech DP, quad tip sti mufflers, it’s lowered and tuned to 95. I also have a full 3” invidia Q300 system in storage, money for the GS TMIC and have considered tuning it to 98/100 oc, but haven’t installed it yet as I’m not sure where I want to go with my car yet. Would installing these 3 things on my auto really benefit me in terms of power gains along with general engine care (to remove knock etc) I guess the plus plus side of putting it all on is if I get a 6S manual I can just transfer it over. Sorry to ramble on guys, I’m in a bit of a pickle with my car situation 😕 ill also get some photos posted of it to show you guys seems as I’ve not posted anything since I got it standard. I love it visually haha. Dean
  6. Welcome back
  7. Thank you all! I was just toying with the idea and it seems like it’s not worth it! Haha
  8. Morning all. I just have a quick question. If I have the OEM 18 inch wheels on my 07 LGTB and wanted a slightly wider/fuller stance look, would it be possible to buy wheel spacers from scarles etc to achieve this? I understand that my wheels may be the way they are for a reason (AWD system/rubbing etc) but I thought I’d ask and see if I can achieve this without it effecting the car in these areas Cheers!
  9. I toyed with this idea too but wasn’t sure about hooking it up to my McIntosh headunit etc as the amp for the factory is pretty weak. in the end I just removed the broken McIntosh sub and went to town with epoxy around the outside of the torn speaker and put it back in, sounds pretty good for me! Haha
  10. @Cookasaurus would you say I’m better off to buy a new amp to replace the Mcintosh one at the same time as the sub then? Ive just read that the original poster installed the Zeroflex 8” subwoofer too and didn’t have problems so I’ll go with that if you all think it will be sweet with the stock amp? Finding an 8” sub which is only 70w max will be quite hard! Haha.
  11. Thanks guys! I may be retarded but ive has a look on TradeMe to no avail. Any cheap/reliable websites anyone can recommend? https://www.qualitycaraudio.co.nz/zeroflex-zf8fd-8-240w-120w-rms-subaru-factory-repacement-car-subwoofer-with-easy-finance-9273 im guessing this would be sweet though? The only reason i son I ask is the macintosh one in swapping for days max 70w 4Ohm so I don’t want to damage the amp. Complete noob here sorry guys, maybe the amp will only provide upto a certain amount (70w) to the new sub anyway etc
  12. Thank you @Andy_Mac @Cookasaurus How much did you pay for yours front TradeMe too @Cookasaurus ?
  13. Hi team! Sorry to bump the thread but I too have the McIntosh speaker system in my 07 LGT and it’s done the exact same thing. I can’t live without having some element of bass as the speakers sound terrible without a sub. Can anyone please recommend me if a factory replacement sub which I can take out and put in or let me know if it’s possible to buy a seperate small sub and plug it into the factory amp (can find any inputs) Orrrrr if I can just get a new sub/amp and some how wire it to the Mcintosh head unit? Thankyouuuu!!!
  14. It was just by Mitre 10 I think! Pretty lucky as I’m sure knowing him the car isn’t I shred for no way near what it’s worth! Send me me a pic of your cars and I’ll keep my eye out when I’m around town haha
  15. @IZichard I’m from the UK originally and I always tell him he’s crazy to leave the key in the car! P.S I still haven’t seen your car around Wanaka haha! Luckily it has been located, most likely a couple of teenagers took it for a spin and parked it up when it run out of fuel. Really lucky that we rarely get any crime in Wanaka!! Cheers guys!
