    Long time stalker. New member. Powertune WRX

    Hi all,

    I'm from Sydney, Australia and I own a 1998 WRX...for now.
    The reason why I say "for now" is because my car, which owned for 3 years was just recently smashed by a truck, whilst parked outside my workplace. And I am now in search of 2011+ WRX.

    Here are list of my mods on my GC8 WRX.

    Power:
    Rebuilt stock EJ20T
    VF22
    FMIC
    Tial 50mm BOV
    Microtech ECU
    Straight pipe (no cat) exhaust with a Varex muffler.

    Handling:
    HSD coilovers F6kg/R4kg
    Front & rear camber tops
    Front & rear strut tower brace
    Enkei wheels

    Power figure: 240kw (322hp) @ 21psi
    Dyno graph is in the car, which is still at the smash repairer awaiting the quote. So I won't be able to post it up.
    In saying that though here are some pics a link to my exhaust video.

    *Incase your wondering about the big ass sticker. Powertune Australia my family workshop here in Sydney. Check out the website for more details on what we do. *GTR from Hell on youtube is one of our cars

    Thanks guys. As soon as I get the new car, I'll definitely start a build thread. Got a couple of plans in mind

    Lol! I'm a shoe size 11. So big boot I won't deny that I was pretty pissed off. But it wouldn't have helped with anything.

    I know it's taken a while. But I have purchased the exact car I was looking for. Already done mods to. Power wise I'm very happy.

    Here is my 2011 WRX in pearl satin white.
