  1. I'm looking for the owner of a 1999 Gf8 Sti. The number plate is cju129. I know this might seem weird but a while back, around the start of this year I saw the car posted up on Trade Me. At that point in time I didn't have the funds to be able to purchase it, but now I have the right amount and was wondering if anyone could help me in tracking down the owner, in the hope that they might be willing to sell it. I know this seems like a long shot but I've been on the hunt for a nice Gf8 for a while now and this one is exactly what I'm looking for. I have a screenshot of it from where it was posted up months ago, but in all honesty have no clue how to add it to this post. (I'm new to the forum) From the information I've gathered it was sold from Manukau Park and Sell sometime this earlier this year and has around 120,000 kms on the clock. The paintjob is dark metallic grey. Cheers for any help in advance.
  2. So I just had an internet arguement about GF8 Gravel Express being detuned compared to the equivalent WRX & I Lost so thought I'd post results here : possible a repost Source :
  3. Hi all just wondering if some one can help me out I've brought a 2008 sti and just wondering how to tell of it's a spec r or not it has the spec r Seats and rims just wondering if theres any other way to tell. Cheers
  4. I have a 08 sti. I'm not looking to tune or anything just want to know what's a good diagnostic tool and where to buy. Just want to be able to read and clear fault codes and that sort of thing
  5. Wondering if anyone can help me out with this.. Im looking to put Ver7 Sti wagon rear seats into my BH5 legacy wagon. Any and all info regarding this would be very appreciated. I have already started the swap and am soon realizing the trouble ive gotten myself into .. Ive done a full 6 speed driveline swap into the legacy already and have the front ver 7 seats installed and really want to fit the ver 7 wagon seats in to match!
  6. Hey guys, Just looking for some recommendations for sizes and brands of injectors for my gf8 build. Really wanting them to fit stock location so I don't have to do a top feed conversion. Shooting for around 220kw atw and would love to hear from some of you with similar builds. Cheers
  7. Just a follow up to my previous post about the build I've got going. I ended up purchasing a cheap fmic kit and the fitment was so terrible I just took it back. I've decided it's not worth spending my money on cheap parts that I'm not going to be happy with. So basically I'm getting some custom IC piping fabricated and am looking for a good quality IC to bolt up front. What intercoolers/brands are you guys running and what do you recommend for sizing and all that. Any other constructive comments are welcome. TIA Ben
  8. Recently started a V5 GF8 project at the start of the year and I am looking for some advice for the direction in which my build should go. So far I have a set of 17x8 Rota Grids with Michelin Pilot Sport 4's, BC gold coilovers (yet to be installed), and a 3inch turbo-back exhaust. I am looking to make around 220-240kw at the wheels and any advice as to how I can achieve this would be great. I assume front mount intercooler, de-capped injectors, larger wastegate?, standalone ecu and a tune would do it, but I'd really appreciate hearing from someone with some experience on the specifics like brands, models of recommended parts. Cheers, Ben p.s. Engine is a stock v5 STI ej207 with a vf28? turbo.
  9. wrx

    hi guys and girls I've got a 95 wrx sti which i want to turn into track hack while keeping it road worthy ( maybe only just) I would like to remove alot of the interior ( ideally most of the stuff behind the front seat backs.) to make room for a half cage and a to lighten the car. ( assuming the cage will need cert thats down the line) I'm unsure how far I can go with this and still retain a WOF'able' standard for example if there are no rear seats can the door panels come off as well as all the carpets? Roll cage: has anyone had one made in the south island that acquired cert ok? Bolt in or weld? Coilover spring rate: Has anyone gone to hard or too soft? wondering if there is a magic number here for front and rear ( bearing in mind a sway bar upgrade will be in order.) Bars and brackets: so many options to stiffen a chassis but which ones really work well for handling? (not so much silly engine torque tho) bearing in mind weight is an issue... any other advise is greatly appreciated !
  10. Hey team - here a few photos from Caffeine & Classics at Smales Farm this morning. Defintitly not my best work with the lense so I'll apologise up front about that. Managed to get a S401, S203, S204, 1998 WRX, and 2004 V9 STI all close together and there were some beautiful cars there including lots of custom setups. I met @preim there too - nice to meet you bro.
  11. Hi team, Well, I finally picked myself up a super tidy V3 STi after driving a people mover for the best part of four years. It has an exhaust and intake but other than that she's fairly stock, and straight. I'm after recommendations from you guys and girls regarding (the next) performance upgrades I should be looking into and recommendations on who should do the work. One name I have seen around here a little bit is Possum Bourne Motorsport. I would be keen to hear of your experiences, good and bad, at tuning shops around Auckland and your best 'bang for buck' performance upgrades that you would recommend for my stock-ish WRX STi. Thanks in advance. Brett
  12. Hi Guys, In the process of trying to find a good quality STI Style front lip (not glass) for my 07 legacy wagon i was forced to buy 5 due to Minimum order Qty. Got 3 left and will sell to SUBCLUB members for $260 outside of trademe. 0211310363 Cheers Guys
  13. Taking the highly tuned XRT 2008 JDM STI w/ a 2010+ STI 2.5 engine out before moving to the Syvecs Powertrain Solution. I do hope you enjoy it.
  14. Hey guys, I'm a new member to site also fairly new to the Subaru scene. I have 1996 wrx wagon with an Ej20g engine fairly stock except for a upgraded turbo to a tdo5 from tdo4 and a front mount intercooler. The engine now has major rod knock so I have purchased a complete minus turbo/intercooler v2 sti engine. I just have a few concerns and any help would be much appreciated. So from what I've been told and found I should be able to use my intake afm etc swap it over to the sti and that should be fine? Will it be fine to use the current ecu in the wrx to run the sti engine with the parts swapped over? I understand that it would have been tuned for the tdo4 and the original motor but will it cause any issues with the engine? Reason be the wrx has a 3 plug ecu and I think the v2 sti is 4 plug. Not looking to make any huge power will only be running at standard boost just wanting to get it alive once again Any help or advice, tricks, tips even for the swap itself is much appreciated!! Tia
  15. Hi team, Started car from cold this morning and got to the first set of traffic lights. Noticed car was idling at 1500rpm which is a little unusual for my car (it usually hits warm idle very quickly). Drove about another 1km to my destination, stopped car for 10min (and turned off), started car and drove to next traffic light - rev meter fluctuating between 500 and 2000rpm and can't settle on a number. Engine check light came on. Drove 20km to destination (motorway) and 1km before destination the engine check light went off. When I reached my destination I let the car idle for 30secs. Revs at 500rpm the slowly climbed to 800rpm over 10 seconds. Vehicle is 1997 WRX STI. Is this my o2 sensor? Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
  16. Hey dudes, I have purchased a 1999 gc8 v5 STI with a blown ej207 motor. I was looking at a version 7 complete engine to replace the blown engine which comes with all the goods ECU, engine loom, turbo etc. I've been told that the v7 motor will bolt straight in but have also been told that the v7 ECU will have trouble working with the car without some auto electrical work. I'm not the most familiar with subies so I'm a bit lost with knowledge but I know the v7s came with AVCS and the v5/6 doesn't. What are your thoughts? Will everything be plug and play or am I better off rebuilding the blown motor?

  18. Hi all, I'm thinking about chucking an exhaust system on the DeForester and seem to remember GC/GF8 aftermarket exhausts pretty much bolt straight up. Is that true? I've seen Redline performance advertising GC/GF8 turbo back exhausts for a reasonable amount of cash as well as SG5 versions. What's the go from your experience? If anyone has any recommendations for aftermarket exhausts for my SF5 turbo I'm all ears.
  19. Hello, I have a 2008 impreza 2.0R and am looking to upgrade the 15mm rear sway bar for a 19mm from an sti, however I cant seem to find one from a 2008-10 model sti so im wondering, what other Subaru's (or models of sti's) have the same 19mm rear sway bar that will fit my car? Do earlier or later model Sti's have the same sway bar as the 2008/10 e.g. 2006 sti's? Cheers
