Default V7 Sti wagon From New Zealand

hey guys, new fella from New Zealand, this is my first impreza, but not my first subie, also currently own a jdm SF5 forester.

picked up my impreza, it's SPOTLESS!!!!! immaculate condition...

it's a JDM V7 STI Impreza Sports wagon. running a reflashed spec C ecu tune (romraider reflash) and downpipe back 3" exhaust.
mods coming up, downpipe, lowering it a touch, maybe some wider rims. big amount of boost map smoothing and a bit more timing smoothing.

pictures!!!!

Awesome car! Welcome to the forums! I wish the U.S. sold cooler packages of the STi like other countries.

well, not too much to add, got the clutch replaced about a month ago, the old clutch had about 2mm thickness left, and the pressure plate was mostly blue. flywheel was apparently in ad shape too, but salvageable. holy crap, what a difference!!! never realised how much power i had lost in clutch slip

this thing is mental now... i love it.

have touched up the tune a few times, now running an estimated 210-220kw at the wheels, at 20 - 22 psi boost. very sedate off boost, but once it gets on it, this thing is an animal
