  1. Pulling up an old thread as I'm in need of a new wheel. Am I correct in saying a v8 sti wheel will fit my v7 sti with no issues but a v9+ may have airbag issues? I'm considering re covering my original in alcantara or getting a v8 wheel and recovering that in alcantara. The v7 wheels look clunky. Or how about a bl or bp legacy wheel? They look nice if there's no buttons.
  2. Turns out the car runs fine and theres no engine light without that header o2 sensor. Haven't actually driven it yet though.
  3. I'll find out soon enough. I'll talk to Chris before the tune and see what he wants me to do. Ideally I can just keep it as is.
  4. ok thanks for the info. If it runs okay, it will be fine to drive carefully. Currently have test fitted headers and they appear to fit great. So good using OEM parts as fitment is always on point. Just fitted new oil pan which was a prick. Should be running tomorrow if I can get a couple gaskets I need.
  5. Oh that sound great. I'm running a link ecu. If i had to guess, it's tuned using the o2 that was in the manifold so that could be tricky for when I want drive the vehicle to Macbilt and the tuner or will it automatically use the second o2?
  6. Ok thanks. My car never had cats pre turbo either. I have a secondary o2 underneath the car on the downpipe but there is also a bung at the top of the downpipe, shall I drill it out and put the o2 sensor that was on the uppipe in that bung?
  7. @Loren Im ready to install my set off a twin scroll car with modified uppipe. Just looking at my headers and it appears they have no O2 sensor whereas my stock Unequal length headers have the O2 sensor on the headers. Where did you install the o2 and did you just use the original one?
  8. I'm sure they could make something decent. They should make a 2 door with 'gc8 looks' to rival the supra haha.
  9. Worth watching. These guys to some great videos, they go in depth into all sorts of tuning and stuff.
  10. I always keep an eye on Subarus up for sale. Type Rs have increased heaps but 90k is a bit much. It's definitly heading that direction though. I remember when gc8s were 10k lol.
  11. 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.
  12. The GR Corolla is a new car I would actually consider buying. cant wait for that.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Looks mint. DSG I assume? DSG gearboxes drive me crazy except for spirited driving.
  16. If your exhaust doesn't have scrapes - your doing it wrong 😁
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. However far apart the traffic lights are is the correct answer 😄 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Awesome. Unfortunately Sundays rarely work for me but with some luck I'll be able to join in briefly.
  22. Are v7 wrx hubs, wheel bearings etc identical to the v7 Sti ones?
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
