What have you done to your car today?

Recommended Posts

My instant thought was of minor concern re why the orange man was trying to go three fingers deep in it

 

 

I need a hobby xD

A bit of bog should fix that. Will be just as strong as when Subaru built it xD

 Post count of 207 for you ;) 

Was really tempted to make a 'fake' craigslist post about how it's mint, never been thrashed sorta schtick.

AJ told me he was borrowing a smoke machine because they are expensive, I didn't realise he was referring to your car;)

Should do me for engine mods for a while, assuming I'll need a tune (Link G1 fitted) once I remove the AFM and throw a pod filter down by the drivers side guard

 

You running the factory water-air ic yeah? Super keen to know what IAT you get during the tune - mine was 30* with the Fenix fmic iirc which isn't anything spesh tbh

 

if your going to get a tune you should consider upgrading fuel delivery, and a decat downpipe etc - just the normal stuff . unless you are keeping it factory spec of course :)

Yep, will be running the stock WAIC.


I'm thinking of keeping it relatively stock - besides the intake (removing AFM, fitting a pod and possibly a down pipe).

Assuming I wouldn't 'need' a retune, unless / until I do the intake (as per above) and putting an upgraded exhaust (cat back, also removing the cat) on it?


Thy being the case, best to do it all at once?

Who's the go to for Link tunes in Auckland?

Yeah mod first tune later

you probably won't need a tune if you keep the afm, you can do pod with the afm - but I think stock air box with a good filter would be better wouldn't it?

 

youll get good gains just by chucking a decent downpipe + exhaust on, pretty sure it's been proven that pods vs panel filters are nearly no different performance wise, you'll hear your turbo spool with a pod though which is definitely kewl :B :) 

 

possum bourne Motorsport is where I went for my tune, great crowd, very professional, and they give you free goodie bag if your special :3 . my Rs has been a blast ever since :P

Got the Soccer mum wagon serviced at @Subirex Automotive today. AJ is such a pleasure to deal with!

 

The Type R got a fire extinguisher and I currently have the intake manifold off tiding up the split fuel rail and a few other things.

Finally had time to clean my car. Been like 5 weeks since its been washed and vacuumed. 

 

Took F***ing ages with only having one useful hand at the moment. 

 

Also put my stock exhaust on for a bit. Sooo quiet now

Looks like like a different car, smaller almost. Way nicer! Make the stock one look really gammy

Yours is a more recessed type isn't it? More framing/less mesh?

Yeah I didn't like the look of your one on the white car. Looks too massive the black mesh area. Like how this has a bit of both

I'll put this down to the speaker's foam surround perishing due to old age. Time to upgrade speakers :)
