Re: Axle back for 2016 STI

So I ended up going with a catback as I thought the axle back would be a waste of $$ and the noise won't change much. I had my eyes set on the Nvidia Q300, but got the R400 instead. Absolutely loving the rumble. I thought it'd be annoying, but it's perfect! good to hear man, the r400 are a great pr...

Re: SIMO's Hyper Blue STI

To be honest i'm satisfied with the power and the overall feel of the car. If the engine ever has a catastrophic failure i will go all out with a built engine, e85 and big turbo. But for now i don't want to ask any more of the stock block. if we got the ej207's like japan than e85 would be a no brai...

Re: SIMO's Hyper Blue STI

Thanks mate! I'm totally satisfied with the mods, every mod has met an surpassed my expectation on the difference they would make. Firstly i highly recommend the carbon fibre driveshaft mod. It has made a huge difference in the feel of the car and i personally think it is responsible for atlas 5kw a...

Re: Advan Racing GT - Will it scrub?

I'm running advanced rgiii and the size is 18x9.5 +45. id say thats perfect fitment with no need to roll guards while still looking flush. i think you will be fine with 18x8.5 +38

Re: Axle back for 2016 STI

Hi All, After posting over a year ago, I've finally jumped on the subaru bandwagon. The plan Was to get a wrx, but a 2016 sti with less than 10k on the clock popped up for a price that I could not resist. Massive upgrade from my 2000 Celica. I love the stock gurgle of the sti, but but miss having s...

Re: Mods for reduced turbo lag in city driving.

just get it tuned first with a down pipe, intake and 3 port boost solenoid. I'm sure you will be satisfied enough once thats done. also lightweight wheels and carbon fibre drive shaft would help a lot too but a bit pricey. A carbon fiber driveshaft.... Why? Because the are only around $1000, easy t...

Re: Wheel Stud and Nuts... I'm already sick of replacing them!

I'd just get stock replacement items, give the bill to the tyre shop and tell the high school dropout tyre fitters to start the nuts by hand with 3 twists of the hand next time.

Theres nothing wrong with the factory hardware its the lazy tyre fitters trying to imitate a nascar pit crew.

Re: as new MOMO MONTECARLO 320cm + NRG quick release

yes, the 6 screw holes of the wheel line up with the thread holes on the boss kit. I first used it with the wheel directly mounted to the boss kit but then i purchased the quick release kit which sandwiches in-between. the boss kit is made of cast aluminium.
