What does the car look like now? Is it v6 Sti looking or underground drift style?

Managed to get it out and about and made an appearance at the MCM 2017 meet at Barbagallo Raceway. Stayed off the track but was good to get it out onto the road again! Couple rattles to fix and the boost gauge needle is a bit bouncy but otherwise all went smoothly.



(Thanks to https://www.facebook.com/BrentsUnfinishedPhotography/ for the photo!)

Am planning on colour coded side and rear skirts once the weather gets nicer again.

Will have to fix Photobucket killing all of my image links... grr!

Racewars scrutineering was today, and I changed the car up a bit cosmetically for the event. (Passed scrutineering, woohoo!). Colour coded skirts, colour coded rear spats, custom 99 STI/04 STI hybrid front lip, and a spoiler off something non-Subaru at the rear. Had a spare boot laying around that I welded up the old spoiler holes and the boot lock, and gave it a quick home respray. Swapped out alloy radiator for Koyo OEM, new DBA T3 4000 front rotors and Forza FP3 pads up front, new Bridgestone RE003's all around. I'll be lucky to crack 200 km/h but hey, it'll be a bit of fun.

Whiteline H brace has also found its way onto the car, have picked up what is hopefully the final piece of the puzzle to get a 03/04 STI steering wheel installed too.

Does this mean you swapped out an alloy rad for a Koyo unit that is same size/spec as a factory unit? Was the alloy rad a bigger unit?

Thanks Matt! Yeah, larger alloy radiator swapped out for factory spec Koyo. Drain plug was leaking, it was touching my aftermarket headers. Wasn't happy with a couple things on it fitment wise and the Koyo was a very good deal.
