  1. Sounds like a mechanical issue. Is the accelerator cable free of everything and in exactly the right place?
  2. Genuine timing kits and engine seals are usually only marginally more expensive than aftermarket. I'd recommend pricing up both. There's a TradeMe user called ejparts that has sourced me genuine parts for less than the dealer prices.
  3. Nice. Well done. I've gone to court for WAY less - it's the principal not the money I care about more.
  4. My friend has a shop in Glenfield and he's usually pretty competitive if you want to check him out. VIP Wheel & Tyre
  5. I ordered gc8 braided line set when putting brembos in my gc8 and they worked perfectly fine.
  6. None that I've heard of and I wouldn't really recommend it anyway but I'm not a mechanic. It will chew through a little more fuel than normal.
  7. I use an Endless 0 degree pad so I can run it on the street and track. I also use an Endless brake fluid. https://www.prosportauto.co.nz/ is where I get my stuff from. I think the combination works really well for my use case.
  8. 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)
  9. 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.
  10. I'm interested in one of these RCM3039
  11. @MichaelJS what colour injectors and AFM does your car currently have?
  12. 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
