  1. Nice work! Can confirm there's a second NPD in Invercargill with 100 Octane. Right between the Hirepool & Turners Cars marker on main road Dee street ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  2. I feel like we're going to need to see a video of it happening to understand it more
  3. On reading this again, is this literally 500+Nm of Torque at the wheels or is there something else to factor in with a dyno run? Given that factory is around 330Nm seems like a wild increase.
  4. Is it not just intake noise? Makes Forester (SH5 XT) makes the exact same noises when accelerating. No vacuum leaks, loss of power etc. My old S-GT from memory did the same.
  5. Well that.. but also rings a bell with Bugeye01WRX and the other 234 accounts he made
  6. Slightly off topic but all these usernames look very familiar / follow a trend.. ๐Ÿค”
  7. Well not that I did it buuuut one new radiator later.. This is a rough week for the poor ol' bank account.
  8. I've parked her up since it happened, just need to get someone to look at it
  9. This is very true. More or less concerned about any internal damage from overheating. Just me assuming the worst though!
  10. Potentially quite a bit of damage but really. Leisurely drive, gave it a wee bit of berries because who doesnโ€™t like being thrown into the seat a wee bit? final corner from my destination and white smoke pissing out from the engine bay. Temp gauge 4/5 of the way up. Pull over and coolant all through the engine. No obvious sign on where itโ€™s coming from though big sigh ๐Ÿ˜“
  11. A well overdue and well deserved wash, polish, ceramic coat and trim detail.
  12. Suppose the difference being whether if its a Japanese import not. Unsure about newer model JDM imports if companies started tuning them for 91? I'm guessing 'NZ New' and market equivalents come factory tuned for 91 to accommodate for the s****y fuel ๐Ÿ˜
  13. New Zealanders seem to have a huge issue with sticking the right / proper fuel in their cars. I've watched people stick 91 into their 335's, S4's, WRX's (makes a small part of me die internally). In all fairness, no car should be running 91 ever, and JDM cars especially since they don't even fuel that drops to such terrible quality even available over there. At least if you owned one, you'd have your own piece of mind knowing you're sticking the right kind of fuel in it.
