Look for a WRX clutch. Do not get a STI clutch. Good price and brand new.

Has anyone purchased anything through Yahoo! Auctions? What's the process? Is it easier just to get a Japenese friend to purchase the stuff and then pay them? I'm looking to get some JDM WRX bugeye headlights for when I head back to the states.

You might get this faster than ordering on Amazon..

http://www.upgarage.com/upgarage/sto...252/003?size=m

It's used but it should work.

Just do a search for 2006 WRX on amazon and it should run you about $280. That comes with new pilot bearing, throw out bearing, new pressure plate, new clutch plate. Don't get a brand new clutch kit in Japan.. The stock OEM is an arm and a leg.

Did you check the foster Junkyard? Heard they have a bigeye WRX there with HID headlights.


If not, if you know a body shop owner out in town... It's a pretty good chance they have an account and can order items for you. Since the yen rate is getting better. Is probably, the best time to get anything on ordered. Just offer like beer or money or coke cola for his time and service.... I do with my body's hop owner.

Hey all, here on Kadena for deployment, looking for a JDM drivetrain for my 2003 WRX. Would like to check around for 207/257, trans, wiring harness, and ECU. Even just JDM engine parts. I'm thinking a built 207 with a large turbo would be a riot. But would also need a Tranny since my '03 wouldn't handle it. Any thoughts?

Sadly, someone got to the headlights before me. I'm gonna go talk to my bodyshop guy tomorrow and see what he can do.

Hey guys, long time reader, very few posts. I work/stay on Kadena. I drive a gc8/gf8 WRB wrx, list of mods are:

Big cone intake (brain farting name)
Kakimoto regu 06 cat back exhaust
Hks catless downpipe
Blitz boost controller
GFB adjustable blow off valve
Cusco front and rear sway bars
Mishimoto radiator and hoses
Hks hypermax coilovers
H-brace

Ok the question is i do not really have much more work to do, except for appearances sake. I am still running on the factory tune (ugh). I need to know if there are any other reputable shops that can flash tune the gc8 ecu? I am not looking to spend $1000+ on a power fc. If anyone can help me out, send me a pm. Thanks in advance!

From what I've heard, there isn't a shop that will do a flash tune out here. I think someone was advertising a flash tune for $200 on Okinawa Yard Sales a couple months ago. I wanted to take him up on the offer but the ad went away before I could.

I suppose someone else here might know. Duwel seems to know everything, I'd wait for his input.

Anyone want to do a meet & cruise on the 18th or 19th? I'll coordinate everything, I just don't know of a good location to cruise to besides Hedo Point, which is quite far. Any ideas?

Gc8 can get Rom tuned... But it's pretty limited to what they can do. There really isn't a shop out here that can tune without a power fc.

If your car is ODB2 compliant (which pretty much all GDB and up are) then there are one or two guys here on island(non shop guys) that can tune it with open source tuning.

There are plenty of fun roads on Okinawa.. You just got to go down roads that looks abandon. When I get back in March. I plan on driving a lot of places up north.. I rarely get to Hedo!

None of the gc8 are ODB2 compliant... The 99-00 gc8 STI and WRX are ODB2 non-compliant. And the open source tuning software will NOT read the gc8 models. That why Power fc where made.. All the WRX and STI from 2001 and up don't have power fc or there isn't too many aftermarket tuning ecu for them because the stock GDB ecu can be tuned!

And 1000 bucks is a lot for a PFC(power fc). When I bought one for my red ver 3 STI it cost me like $700 used. You can find them cheaper out there. A friend of mine has a PFC in his 99 STI type R. I think he spent like 500-600 for his.. I can be wrong.


I did do the 2004 GDB STI swap into my gc8 so, so far I'm the only one known on Okinawa that has a gc8 with ODB2 compliant... Jaxsuby aka Ben Yang tuned my car when he use to live here.
