Is this the red 2dr L that James was selling? I was going to buy that car, but when i went to look at it, the problems scared me away. I had the money to buy it, but not the money to fix it... shame though

3 inch mandrel bent zorst first. Then cahnge ure stock shockers and springs. get front and rear sway bars and anti lift kit. Then buy some nice 17's with 205/35/17 rubber bands. after which is you feel so inclined i would rip out all the crap u dont need ie sound deadening air con if ure really serious and all the other little bits like the motors out of ure electric mirrors. I saved 65 kg of my legacy. As mentioned upgrade turbo, with front mount and good stand alone management, with 600cc+ injectors. Then rebuild your engine with forgies and all the extras and while its out slot in a close ratio wrx RA box and diffs. a nice twin plate exedy clutch with lightened chromoly flywheel is essential as well dont forget ure fuel pump, with a swirl tank for good measure. then after lunch repaint it in the hue of your choice and tint the sucker out. While the paint dries slot in a water injection kit and zex nitrous 50 hp fogger and mount the bottle. simple really. all this has taken me 2 yrs to acquire etc, but its worth it in then end(if the end ever arrives)

Ps u want a respectable car. this should earn some respect.

standalone is the only way to go. perfectionmotorsports has them for your motor. and no a front mount is not required for a 16g or a 22. its just highly recomended depending on who you talk to. some say top mount is good enough but its prone to heat soak. some say front mount is good but it has the possibility of increased lag.

one last thing. dont get a 22. 34 39 and 16g should be suficcent for streetable respectable power. and if you want to constantly upgrade get the 16g. it is the most easily upgraded between the three

u need intercooling with any turbo upgrade. more power. and for this level of mods i would look at some of the packages other companies supply. eg stage 1 stage 2 etc and mimic what they do like make parts buy some. or buy the kits. good first steps are upgrade turbo mitsus td05h or td06 has best flexibility for later upgrades. with mandatory intercooler. 3'' exhaust and a piggy back chip would be fine for this level of mods, as at this stage ure only interested in running a bit more boost and a bit more fuel. also i changed my fuel rail to feed in parrallel to prevent #3 leaning out. also upgrade ure earths in the engine bay and the ecus earth. from ure pic u still have the resonator in the intake installed, bin and replace with a nice smooth bend.

Just get a WRX exhuast, like a stromung. It will need the mounting points rewelded but that is not hard. A custom FMIC and 16g would be very nice. Some nismo injectors and some way to controll timing/fuel and you are set.

in australia APS make them. i dunno about how the sub computer would feel about nismo injectors, it might refuse to run them on principle.
basically stage 1 is about freeing up the intake and exhaust and chipping it thus giving it some more air. stage 2 is upgrade parts like turbo and intercooler, and fuelling. stage 3 is rebuild engine and go large with ure mods.
its a progression

dont take this personal, but that is a bit childish, i mean i can understand if someone says something honestly stupid, but in this case ncarn was helping me out and sixpack had no business sticking his 2 sense in. thats just my opinion though....so if you dont agree, i dont care.

I kind of see it as six pack helping you out. As he said this person was asking how to change their fluids

Also ncarn said to get a set of 35 series tires. That is not good advice right there. For street 35 would suck, and well for auto x/track most people use larger sidewalls.

I saw it more of someone looking out for you. Six pack knows his stuff, we have no idea if the other guys knows anything.

righto turnip munchers first things first
i didnt ask how to refill coolant, get ure facts up to date
35 series ride nice bit jerky but looks good. dont tell me youd have 80 profile whitewalls... tyrew choice is subjective notice alot of decent oem tyres have low profiles... 35 is low but if porsche fits pirelli p-zero corsas 235/40/18s f and 295/30/18s rear theres probaly a reason for this. but no doubt you know better
and sixpack if you want to be a smart arse go for it. i dont call myself master anything. your cyberlife comment is waaay off beam. most of the parts on that list i have, have seen fitted to other cars or have seen used effectively on other cars. sti wanted information i put in heaps of stuff. do you have a problem with this? he wants answers about performance related stuff. not some over inflated zephyr head ringing everyone out
none taken
