  1. Insanely cool. How much?
  2. 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 πŸ˜ƒ
  3. I feel like we're going to need to see a video of it happening to understand it more
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Well that.. but also rings a bell with Bugeye01WRX and the other 234 accounts he made
  7. Slightly off topic but all these usernames look very familiar / follow a trend.. πŸ€”
  8. Well not that I did it buuuut one new radiator later.. This is a rough week for the poor ol' bank account.
  9. I've parked her up since it happened, just need to get someone to look at it
  10. This is very true. More or less concerned about any internal damage from overheating. Just me assuming the worst though!
  11. Potentially quite a bit of damage but really. Leisurely drive, gave it a wee bit of berries because who doesn’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 it’s coming from though big sigh πŸ˜“
  12. A well overdue and well deserved wash, polish, ceramic coat and trim detail.
  13. 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 😁
  14. 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.
  15. Also not sure on what unit, and whether to get one with a constant power feed or a battery operated one. My thoughts now are maybe wire one into the car that can be powered by USB, and run it so it's hidden in the (unfortunate) event of my car being stolen. I'm assuming the lower end ones can be blocked pretty easily, but then again, I'm guessing they'd be a pretty 'high-end' car thief if they're blocking GPS trackers πŸ˜‚
  16. Does anyone use a GPS tracker and their Subaru? Can anyone advise what sort of unit they use, installation difficulty and cost? As far as I can see, they range from low end 3g units online to professionally installed high end ones.
  17. Quick follow up: Upper engine cleaner has made a massive improvement.
  18. I thought all WRX's had UEL's until after Version 9 (Hawkeye's) then the JDM line, all the 2 Litre WRX STI's, S-GT's etc had equal length, and the AUDM, NZDM, USDM 2.5 Litre variants had equal length? Could be wrong. While all WRX STI's are increasing in value pretty rapidly, the Blobeye will undoubtedly be increasing more and have more value in the future since they're a lot less common than V7's (Which seem to be everywhere). You'll pay more but I reckon it's a better trade-off and a better looking car!
  19. It's okay man, sometimes us IT dudes brain's just melt when trying to do basic stuff on the devices we spend 8+ hours a day working on
  20. I'm tossing up now as to whether I prefer the SH5 with or without the factory aero kit like mine has! Both can look great when done right though.
  21. It sounds like you don't have a lot of confidence in your engine and you're about to drop it in for a tune..
  22. Been a while since someone posted on this sooo i'll give it a wee bump even though car photography is not a strong point for me
  23. Ah right. So is this any indication or a bad solenoid, or bad connection, maybe solenoid needs cleaning? Come to think about it, I was in fourth gear and just planted it.
