I know it needs lowering, happening soon ;D

24/6/08
Just had Turbo XS Turbo Back Exhaust fitted and had the car re-tuned with ECUtek here in Aus.
Results were quite good, power up to 152.4KW and torque to 358NM. Biggest improvement was torque went up a huge 110NM
Intercooler now seems to be a weak link so this will be next on the shopping list

Re: Dougie's Black 08 Advan RS

The thought had crossed my mind, wont be for a while though. Lowering, Exhaust and ECUtek retune coming first

I like where your heads at Dougie.....
I think those might look nothing short of hot on mine also.
STi calipers and slotted rotors would be the go, just to get rid of those Commonwhore (Lumina for the yanks) looking brakes.

order some STi pinks (subarugenuineparts.com has them), they're inexpensive ($150 US) and will lower it enough to look nice and not require any fender pulling/rolling

they were 4 small boxes in a larger box...

they COULD ship all 4 separately for cheap (they don't weigh that much)

Says they only drop the car by 10mm, not really worth it for such a small drop

Re: Dougie's Black 08 Advan RS

it's more like 15mm

but who wants to drop a subaru?!?!? save slamming for hondas and VWs

these springs are stiff without being low and useless and uncomfortable

plus the STi springs are a subaru genuine part and will be covered under the same warranty as the rest of the parts on your car

Wheels look sweet!!, ive narrowed it down to these or PRO DRIVE WRC 1 in rally gold.
I got a price for the Pro Drives from John at Wheels World in Osborne Park, they sell whiteline springs, bars , roll centre kits etc if your looking at lowering the car. Does race setups as well.

Cheers

Re: Dougie's Black 08 Advan RS

the STi has them and we have the same mounting points and wiring... you would just have to order the parts and hook everything up. mounting them in the WRX bumper would require drilling some holes though
