Re: New, soon to be, WRX Hatch owner questions

The GR is the model code for the hatch and GV is for the sedan. They call them G3 to summarise the 2008-2014 models

Re: New, soon to be, WRX Hatch owner questions

Hey, in the next month or 2 I’m getting ready to buy a 2011-2014 WRX Hatchback. I’m pretty certain I don’t need an STI, as seeing how this out of my budget, turbo lag(since this will be my city street daily driver), and 0-60 in less than 6 seconds is plenary fast for me... for now. But from a begin...

Re: Cat back for MY18 STI

Hey mate, young to be owning a new STI!! Your insurance premium must be through the roof!

I have an Invidia Q300 cat back on mine atm, they have a subtle note at idle, zero drone and sound epic when you hold your right foot down. You can't go wrong with it

Re: Opinions on current setup and possibly upgrades

You should be seeing 200kw at the wheels with that set up. Something is wrong with the tune. e85 or flex fuel should net you somewhere between 220-240kw

Re: '13 STI dump and mid or full TBE?

Yeah I miss having a 200+kw car, my Forester was a beast and I thought a stock STI would be fast enough but I guess you always want more! Especially with the stock tune, it feels soooo sluggish compared to the Forester I know I'd regret spending money on my car when there's a tonne of travel to be d...

Re: '13 STI dump and mid or full TBE?

The car has taken a backseat whilst saving up for travel so nup. I purchased a Q300 catback around March but only put it on about 2 months ago (despite saying I wanted to keep the stock mufflers). The sound out of the Q300 is perfect for me, seriously purrs along at 130kmh in 6th gear and opens up n...

Re: Axle back for 2016 STI

Go an Invidia cat back. I have an invidia made for your model but on my 2013 sti (same motor = same sound). It gives a really nice growl when you open it up but it has no drone at up to more than 130kmh. Really quiet at cruising speed and won't affect the performance with only the cat back section.

Re: 08-09 WRX STI pricing

I agree with matto above. Also from 2010 (I believe) they changed to a wide body design plus the dual mufflers, they look SOOOOO much better than the 08-09 series wrx which if they didn't have the bonnet scoop you'd think it was an rs impreza

Re: Vf38 upgrade on stock gc8?

Yeah sorry to be the bringer of bad news, it especially sucks when you have the turbo sitting there in front of you... You would have to change the exhaust manifold which would add $500+ depending on whether you went new/old/aftermarket, plus tuning, etc etc, it would be a beach I had a VF34 on my o...

Re: Vf38 upgrade on stock gc8?

No it is from a liberty, it is twin scroll and you will have to do a bunch of work to get it to fit. I'm not sure if your old GC8 ecu will be able to handle getting it tuned for it either.

If you want to save money, time, effort, and research, sell it and get a vf34

VF38's have a unique twinscroll set up.

I'd sell it and get a VF34, it will be a lot easier and cheaper

Re: Just Cars Insurance no more...

I've been looking for insurance for my 2013 sti. Last year quotes were in the 1200-1800 ball park. I ended up cheaping out with Woolies insurance for something like $900 paid monthly. This year, I can still do woolies for cheap but thought I better get a more reputable policy that will support mods....

Re: What exhaust should i get for my rs2.5 impreza

Get a second hand stock STI one for your year, should fit and will be louder without drone

Some aftermarket but not too loud include:
MRT diffback
Invidia diffback
hitech diffback

Steer clear of x force unless you REALLY wanna hear it
