  1. Haha so my mate found this of my old car (first manual car) was in the family a few years until about a year ago.
  2. The GR Corolla is a new car I would actually consider buying. cant wait for that.
  3. I agree. The front looks sharp, the rear reminds me of a honda and the black wheel arch pieces look odd. Cant see young people buying these. Maybe thats what the Sti is for
  4. Probably can't get genuine ones atm. I bet car dealers are closed. Repco and supercheap are open for 'essential' stuff. If you order what you need and tell them you need the car on the road for essential travel, maybe they will courier it to you. They aren't genuine quality but if done right, they should last long enough.
  5. Looks mint. DSG I assume? DSG gearboxes drive me crazy except for spirited driving.
  6. If your exhaust doesn't have scrapes - your doing it wrong ๐Ÿ˜
  7. I used group n mounts. They definitly added a decent amount of vibration when idling. Fine when driving tho. Apparently poly bushes need to be regressed after a while - i could be wrong tho. I would go for uprated whiteline rubber bushes personally.
  8. I feel much more heatsoak after sitting in slow traffic than after pulls. With pulls at least there is decent airflow though the intercooler. Heat soak is mostly just annoying because it feels slower than normal. Your just getting less boost due to higher temps. If the motor ist happy it has ways of dealing with it such as pulling timing. They always feel great on a cool winters night haha.
  9. However far apart the traffic lights are is the correct answer ๐Ÿ˜„ Nah I'm sure someone has done some data logging on this for how long IATs get back to normal but I wouldn't worry about it. If it feels slow then it's heat soaked and you can tell.
  10. VF22 can run at about 22-23 psi and depending on engine health 270-300hp tops if your running 98 octane. Pretty sure thats accurate. Edit: I use Flickr for uploading photos, works well.
  11. Awesome. Unfortunately Sundays rarely work for me but with some luck I'll be able to join in briefly.
  12. Are v7 wrx hubs, wheel bearings etc identical to the v7 Sti ones?
  13. Yeah I can't wait. Have been listening to some clips including @Lorens car and they definitly sound great. I also have rcm/samco turbo inlet and intake so should get some nice spool nose too.
  14. Yeah I have the turbo and few other bits however ill install that just before the tune. Then the tuner will install link ecu and injectors on the dyno. I would have guessed even pulses would beat having the slightly shorter pipes on two cylinders in terms of spool and power.
  15. Should be a good test then. Maybe a twin scroll will be my next turbo if this one ever gets boring๐Ÿ˜„
  16. Ok. Should definitely be more knock resistant due to equal cylinder Temps etc. Mainly want to see the spool difference so I don't need to go too hard on it to find out. I'm very interested to see what difference it makes.
  17. I'm interested to compare equal length vs unequal on stock turbo with no other changes so would it be safe driving it for a few days without a tune touch up? Then I can do turbo etc just before the tune.
  18. Still wating for response about buying the twinscroll-single scroll uppipe but If I have to get one custom made up I doubt ill have time before the tune. Unless there's any aftermarket options already available?
  19. Haha yeah. Unfortunately I already have a new turbo-care single scroll td05 18g sitting here. If I knew I would have gotten a TS turbo to begin with. Not too worried tho
  20. Okay. I'll pm you. Another option would be to get a twin scroll exhaust housing but I talked to turbo care who said there are no good ones out there that are any good.
  21. I found an auction on trademe for the following gear: Equal length twin scroll headers, uppipe, oil sump, pickup and dipstick. Only costed me $300 so its relatively low risk if I don't like it. What's the best way to go about modifying uppile to suit my single scroll turbo?
  22. Okay. Not unless previous owner took it there.
  23. Took my turbo off today and found this black stuff. Its pretty dry but will come off with some encouragement, I was able to scoop some out of the bottom of the turbo inlet pipe. I have had a catch tank for a about 6 months so am I correct to assume this is just old blowby? Car has done low kms, in good health and was running close to 23psi. This doesnt look normal tho. Thankfully I have a new turbo and turbo inlet
  24. It might be my next mod. Not in a hurry unless I can find some cheaply somewhere. There is a v9 sti headers,uppipe, vf37 turbo only done 70000kms on trademe for 1.2k. I could sell the turbo for 600 plus buy sump and pickup etc plus uppipe modification. Its still close to 1k tho. If I can do it for under 700 I'd consider it.
