can wait to see the pics!!
Welcome to the club... I hope you are enjoying it so far.
Lots of great people here...
I managed to take the pics of the <huge> downforce wing after intallation this afternoon with my cellphone..(it was too dark when I returned home last night). Will post here in 2h, stay tune!
first impression: up to 85-100 km/h, it's hard to notice a difference. Between 100-140 (did not try yet faster), you kind of feel like the back of the car is "heavier" and it sticks on the road. It might be just the placebo effect though as it was not a double-blind test.
here is the result (poor pic quality sorry) after installation.
I'll took better ones next weekend with a better camera.
Very nice. And good to see someone else with the same car. I have the sti v4 wagon, in white. I live in Osaka.
These cars are so good.
Are you interested in interfacing with the engine cpu? One thing I'm trying to do is set up the computer interface for the OBD port. From that you can extract the injector duty cycle, boost, wastegate duty cycle, air fuel ratio, etc etc. It's a bit hard since the pre-OBD cars like ours need v4 sti specific hex addresses for each parameter, and the interface has to be built, but if you are interested, I can give you the information that I've found. There's very little English information since the v4 stis were only sold in Japan.
My name is Frank. I live in Subaru land near tokyo. I got a WRX STI version 4 (1998)..."http://sti.webhop.net
Ahhhhh ....again, this brings back memories of my late '00 2.5-RS(RIP) ...not really/exactly what you've got there but you can call it a "distant cousin"??!
I always like to think that my SUBY went to SUBIE-HEAVEN (Japan).
SALUTATIONS and WELCOME!!!
