Re: Adam's 06 STi (ABSTI)

Thanks, all the heatshields had cracked for the 50th time anyway, they were retired lol

Next mods - learning to detail it myself, coilovers and flex fuel

Re: Adam's 06 STi (ABSTI)

It was 22 - 23 psi from memory. I also added a set of PSR UEL headers and Cobb heatshield.

Re: Adam's 06 STi (ABSTI)

So I had an issue with my turbo so decided to trial another turbo, after recommendations I went with the Dom 1.5 7cm and absolutely love it! The car made power power, is more responsive on less boost across the range. I'm now probably at the limits in terms of power and response when it comes to my ...

Are you sure they're not the DEFI racer gauges as they don't require a master unit.

Re: 08 STI - STARRN

Very neat, maybe also check out the ATP STI Gold turbo and potentially running Flex fuel or at least making sure everything is e85 ready.

Re: Adam's 06 STi (ABSTI)

No front brace does sweet F all in my opinion, it's just there for looks - if anything it just gets in the way of the intercooler :lol:

It's only an Ultrex light brace sprayed red :thumbs:

Re: Adam's 06 STi (ABSTI)

Ironed out a few issues which involved removing ECUTEK, a re-tune & preparing to go flex fuel. Here is a comparison from the day I bought the car versus today, a completely different car to drive! Just goes to show that you can't measure drive ability by peak power figures as it's only a 15kw in...

Re: Takata airbag recall - All Subaru Model Year (MY) 2004-2007

I'd just call up Subaru, I phoned Docklands and asked them when they could fit me in - they basically said whenever I want!

Probably easier just to call them and drop it in, I can't envision them needing it for any more than an hour...

Re: Adam's 06 STi (ABSTI)

I've only had it on for a couple thousand kms and it's already cleaning up some of the oil in the IC. it all helps in the end I guess.

h Yep, has the option of a USB which is a cable that runs around the unit and I have sitting in my cigarette bay (i'll get a photo). Dead easy to install, I just bought a $20 adapter off ebay and it was essentially plug n play, you'll just need to ground one of the wires if you want to play DVD's w...

Re: Choosing an sti

The OEM 2.5L pistons were garbage and notorious for ringland failure and you will find no tuner will push an unopened engine over the 200kw mark (98), 05 Sti's on the otherhand have been known to take a beating unopened (I've heard reports of 300kw machines getting around) - but it all comes back to...

Head haskets & ringlands seem to be a common problem (I unknowingly bought my car with a buggered HG). Where is the car located?

Replace it if it's out, I've heard horror stories of people not replacing them and seizing brand new engines!
