    Thanks guys.

    Yes, the STI Spec.R has push start, fogs, BBS wheels, Recaro seats, tinted windows, keyless entry and Navi.

    Oh and I traded the Cherokee SRT8 for this about 3 weeks ago:


    Information from first owner who had it tuned and modified in the US before shipping it home.

    Engine ( 4G63) 2000cc, originally 276hp. Over 400hp after modification (355,14 wheel hp dynoed)

    Gearbox: Standard 5 speed.

    Acceleration: 0-60 in 5.0 sec original (car and driver mag 2003). With mods about 3,8-4.0 Top speed: 270-280 km/h.

    ¼ míla: 13.6/101 original (car and driver mag 2003). After mods, 12,18/112.88. First time the car had been raced and first time ever for the owner on a drag strip. Tires were 245/40/18 with 32psi tire pressure.

    Turbotrix told the owner it should be able to get about 11.9 sec with this setup.

    The car did get 12.24 secs but a crack in upper intercooler pipe had caused boost droppage, but the pipe had been rubbing against the cooling fan. Custom pipe from Turbotrix solved the problem.

    List of mods:

    Exhaust: TurboXS 3” all the way ( downpipe also 3”)

    ECU: AEM EMS ( stand alone system)

    Intake: Custom made by Turbotrix ( K&N filter)

    Cams: HKS 280/280 race cams (same for intake and exhaust valves)

    I was told these cams are the "hottest" HKS makes.

    Camgears: Unorthodox adjustable gears.

    Blow-off valve: Tial racing Blow-off valve

    Intercooler pipes: TurboTrix custom racing pipe kit

    Headbolts: ARP strenghened bolts

    Fuel pump: Walbro 255 HP

    Boost controller: Hallman “manual” boost controller (currently at 24 psi)

    Pulleys: Light-weight Unorthodox

    Clutch: ACT clutch kit

    Gearshift: Perrin short throw shifter

    Suspension: TEIN s-tech springs

    Spark plugs: NGK (BPR7ES)


    Carbon Fiber Cam gear cover

    Carbon Fiber cooling bracket(?) (between front bumper and intercooler)

    Greddy turbo timer

    Auto meter gauges ( Boost and air/fuel )

    Mitsubishi radio relocation kit

    Exterior mods:

    VOLK RACING wheels (CE28N) limited edtiton (polished lip and gunmetal spokes) on 245/40/18 rubber.

    Evolution badge ( UK style) excluding the 8(VIII)

    Perrin short antenna

    Rear bumper side marker delete

    Headlights blackout

    Taillights blackout


    It's the SSL package. Leather seats and door panels, xenon lights, sunroof and Infiniti sound system... I plan on getting a front lip for it and maybe the vortex generator on the roof. Euro rear bumper would be nice, but a bit expensive at the moment.
