Default VWRX from down under....

Here is my VWRX (wrx powered vw).
A little different to quick108's car...

Engine:
1996 Subaru EJ20T
Subaru quad cam turbo that is running 2 injectors per cylinder, Wolf3D ecu, IHI VF23bearing turbo, GFB aluminium pulley set, turbosmart supersonic blow of valve and eboost electronic boost controller, custom polished stainless steel intake pipes

Exhaust:
Custom 3" straight through polished stainless steel exhaust system including one of custom muffler.

Suspension:
Adjustable VW torsion front end.
Adjustable AVO coil overs to the rear.

Wheels:
16x7.5 TSW Evos front
16x9.5 TSW Evos rear
Painted Black.

Modifications:
The body has a host of modifications including a 4" roof chop, widened fibreglass rear fenders, a one piece fibreglass tilt front, a purpose made aluminium rear wing to house the huge PWR intercooler in and a real carbon fibre W decklid.

The drivetrain upgrade includes the installation of a 1989 Porsche G50 transaxle, Porsche 930 cv joints, custom Romac billet axles, custom adjustable AVO coil over rear suspension, rear cross drilled disk brake conversion and modified type 3 vw drive flanges.

Interior alterations include full Autometer ProComp dash, custom aluminium console housing tacho, shift and oil pressure lights, greddy turbo timer and plx devices air fuel meter, Custom wiring panels, custom 4 point roll cage, refabricated fire wall and parcel shelf, removal of rear seat, relocation of front seats further back 8", installation of modern hanging pedal assembly including hydraulic clutch.
Oh yeah....there is also the full red Carbon Fibre look interior and red carpet to match.....just incase you didn't notice.

Under bonnet alteration include the installation of an adjustable front beam, cross drilled rotors, custom wiring panel, spun aluminium fuel cell and a custom radiator/tilt front support.

Stereo Audio / Visual:
Be real....why would I want to add weight...it's 950kg as it is, and is too heavy.

Estimated Power:
I've yet to have the car tuned yet but would really hope for 180 to 200KW at the rear wheels, which I don't think is overly abitious. I've a new engine to put in that put out 225kw at the flywheel running 13.5lb boost using an old td05 turbo - so it should be interesting....
