  1. Nah but that's irrelevant (to me at least). An email with the tribunal ruling is all you really need to do. Then supply your bank account number and watch the money trickle in (simplified summary :D)
  2. Once I get court rulings I just send all my s***e to a debt collector and let them deal with it. The firm I use only charges me if they collect so I don't have to worry about it.
  3. $5k for front pads and discs on these
  4. I'm interested in one of these RCM3039
  5. @MichaelJS what colour injectors and AFM does your car currently have?
  6. Please confirm - did you swap an STI ecu into a non-STI? If yes, you need to change AFM and injectors as well at a minimum. You should also swap your turbo to the appropriately matched STI variant (likely a vf28) and run an STI intercooler. You also need to make sure that the ECU you've swapped from was mapped for the same compression ratio as what you're swapping into as there are differences between some WRX and STI builds/years. E.g. some WRX were 9.0:1 yet the STI variant was 8.0:1 (or 8.5:1 - can't remember exact numbers but the point stands). Someone else will be able to elaborate on this more than I can
  7. Yes - awesome. Best value for money and decent core size.
  8. This is far more efficient - great idea
  9. Hmm, OK cheers! So I think what should happen here is @Andy_Mac should purchase both the S257 and the EFR 7670 and back to back test them for us. Then we can figure out how many $ per reduced RPM spool time the EFR is worth 🤣
  10. On the Full Race site they list the S257 as same wheels as the EFR "57mm Forged-Milled EFR7670 compressor wheel, optimized aerodynamics" and "Inconel 70mm turbine wheel, same blade shape as EFR7670" but then the EFR7670 says "BW utilizes their 70mm Gamma-Ti turbine wheel" so I don't know if they are different or the same? Don't mean to hijack your thread @Andy_Mac 😅
  11. Nice man - I ordered same bits and skipped the bolts and washers at that price haha. I have same sump too and it just came with the cork gasket - I'm sure they'd make you one up.
  12. Haha nice one! I think PBMS do a cork sump gasket - I haven't had mine leak yet so that could be a go. Genuine gaskets are similar price I believe but the bolts and bolt washers are hugely expensive.
  13. Such good value R&D plus the BOV, BCS and IWG - but more than double the price 😅 Could run a secondary oil cooler just for the turbo maybe?
  14. This is my understanding too.
  15. If it's a 2.5L maybe the Borgwarner S200SX-E could be an option? There are two variants available on NZ Performance and the one is basically the EFR 7670 w/o the BOV and stuff - the compressor housing even has the speed port machining done if you wanted to use it. There's a good write up on Full Race about them and they are more than half the price of the EFR series equivalent. Plus, you can purchase the turbine housing of your preference from NZ Performance too for a few hundred bucks. Sorry for not complying with the existing selections haha! PS: The 200SX-E is even more compact that the EFR series too
