  1. Nah, not ridiculous power. The car is a weekend/garage queen car for me; haha totally defeats the purpose of owning a car. Probably haven't driven it for the past 3-4 weeks. Will see how it all goes closer to the date
  2. VERY Tempting. I'll have to see how I feel about it closer to the date haha. I'm close to setting up my other track project up so this is a good test to see how it does with hard launches/shifting. Or accidentally drive in reverse lol. I'd say it would be a very very close run if I do decide to bring the Subby haha. I'm definitely doing soft launches - I'm just too scared lol.
  3. I guess I might possibly see ya there :D. Probably won't bring the Subby down though - I'm scared I'll break something.
  4. Sold the Volks that was on my car was hoping to put it on the trusty daily Honda but funds were tight. Long awaited rims and tyres have finally arrived after much wait. Fitment is on point rubs at the front but nothing a tiny bit of camber plus fender rolling won't fix.
  5. They are now called Work Emotion D9'rs
  6. Yeah, that's exactly what I've heard as well being JDM the most strongest/reliable way. They do rev to 8K RPM and from knowledge V11's are semi-forged.
  7. Was yours the 2.0L or 2.5L? From what I've heard most of the rebuilt ones have been the 2.5L engines. I'm currently at 114k's from memory on a bigger turbo & unopened engine. Cylinder leak down test came to a very good result. Also cylinder tested PSI came to between 1-3PSI difference across 4 cylinders.
  8. Quite true. I could for sure feel the difference from initial launch to top end run. If they took your EBCS then from my guess they have set your High & Low boost settings via your Throttle Response modes (Intelligent, Sport,Sport #) - I have the same thing as I wanted to drive in low boost 90% of the time. That's a really good outcome from a stock turbo and I'm only pushing close to 250kW in mine. By chance are you rocking a 3" Turbo back exhaust? That's a hella lot of $$ for doing 2 tunes.
  9. +1 ^ Yep, a buffer, cutting compound and headlight sealer is what I did. I was tired of looking at my misaligned bumper but since it was off I decided to freshen the headlights up a bit as well. Came out quite well. I did not expect to do this and wanted to tint my front headlights as well so it does not fog up in the future but oh well.
  10. I ended up with getting the Scarles carbon fibre one. Originally I opted for Redline Performance VF but it looked really bad and did not fully cover the turbo exhaust housing. With this beanie it made putting it on much harder due to size of turbo; got there in the end but a lot of frustration lol. Rubs a little on the actuator gate lever but nothing that would tear the fabric to pieces.
  11. From what I've read on some Subaru Sti cars that it doesn't like Mobil 1 oil much.
  12. 5L Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 100% Synthetic. Get a genuine Subaru filter/sump plug washer is optional. If you go through with Jacky he will sell you 5L Motul H-tech 100 10w-40.
  13. Cheers Im trying to retrace what I did over the weekend haha to remember if I have seen ya. Was it midnight Sat?
  14. Have you guys heard of Flossy? I have one on my car and it's awesome. From experience and memory it doesn't get hot, a very good feel + grip wise almost feels like a rubberized coating on top of the steel material used. Reverse cut out, weighted and no plastic delrin. Downside it's from America + It's expensive for a piece of metal but totally worth it imo.
