Hi Guys

I have a blue WRX 08, had it since Oct 07.
She is stock as a rock at the moment but with sat nav. But have plans for the usual mods.
Its been a great car so far though i have clocked up 28000k!

If any one knows of good places to have mods done for the 08 in syd let me know. I know that MRT are doing a few things for the 08 but the are really expensive. (try $4000 for an exhaust and a tune).

Oh. almost forgot I am out at Penrith.

Ryan, when I had my classic and was living in Sydney I had my exhaust done at HiTech and they were great, the best I have ever had on any of my cars.

28000 :eek: do you use it for work??????

Well at least the seat is moulded to your arse now....lol

Hi all.

NSW - Newcastle area.
WRX as per Avatar. My daily work drive since Dec 07. 18 Inch wheels, Whiteline springs, sways, back sway brace, upgraded endlinks, custom CB exhaust, OBD II guage and painted out rear chrome. I have the red film and red glass paint for the rear indicators, but still undecided on what to do yet.

Evening viewers, Greg from northern NSW, MY08 WRX, only done rear sway bar {whiteline 22m adjustable} worthymod, a home made air splitter for the intercooler, and ive tweeked the air intake system by blocking some areas and opening others up, namely part of the bonet rubber to improve cold forced air flow. Im sure the engineers wanted it that way but the bean counters win everytime in this price bracket.

Just make sure you are not forcing water in there as well when it rains. You can do something similar with some plastic piping and connecting into the bottom of the air box (just use a hole saw to open up the pipe fixture that is already there).

Hey wats up im from north sydney and got my MY08 about 3 weeks ago now. Love it heaps - wouold love to get a xruise of some sorts going, even with other rexy generation also.. get down to the gong or something?
All I have done is the short shift and gear knob (stocka), but I'll wait a year like I did with my MY03 nd get a TBE and tune...
Not from MRT though. Over priced and all there stuff is so badly made... I dont mean necessarily how long will it last.. I mean its ugly! Especially for the money.
Go to HiTECh or get a japanese one man.

The MRT ones look like an long empty baked beans can welded onto the cat.. [email protected][email protected]!

Check out the video of the HITECH one I have put up... Mind you HITECH is pretty fucken pricey too....

Hi I'm from Newcastle and have recently fitted a TurboXs TBE and had a tune done by AutoTech. Not cheap, but had a 37Kw gain over standard on approx 15lbs boost. Car feels and sounds great.

heya.. I'm steve... from Burwood NSW. Had the rex since May 08. Haven't done anything but looking to do a few things quite soon. My first turbo car so pretty much new to everything. Don't know much about anything actually!

I'm keen to get a BOV and exhaust but don't won't them loud... loud enough I can hear it, but not loud enough that wakes the neighbours up or in the low revs..
