Default red car

time to put together a new build diary for the latest addition. 1999 WRX in sedona red with plenty of paint fade, chips and dents.

Came with afew goodies listed below:
- VF30
- Power FC
- AVCR boost controller
- WL anti lift kit
- King super low springs on stock struts
- sti 550cc injectors? pic included if anyone can confirm
- some sort of upgraded fuel pump, yet to pull it out to look
- Ebay as fuck intercooler
- Some sort of recirc bov
- hectic pod filter
- Excedy HD clutch
- DBA front rotors
- 3" TBE with varex milo tin

So far i have replaced the rear sway bar mounts (03 wrx mounts) and bushes (some red brand ones). 2 pot rear brake and 300mm rotor upgrade. all of which i had lieing around after wrecking an 03 wrx. Free is good.

Got it off Tim at Forged automotive in Midvale, he commented on the tune feeling abit rubbish when he first got it and rented Tokyo's dyno and ended up taking 5degs out ign timing across the board as it needed alot more work than he had time to do. Came with a heap of receipts for various stuff including a dyno print out from though who shall not be named. Its only running 1 bar of boost so between that and the conservative timing it feels abit more sluggish than what id expect so waiting for a good deal on a wideband AFR to have a play with the power FC, if I die, I die.

Looking at options to replace front strut tophats as they are starting to crack, im sure this will be something that they check for at rallysprint so need it fixed. Looking into camber plate options that are compatible with stock struts. Cannot afford the 1.8k price tag of decent coil overs so hoping i can get away with some camber plates, lower springs, sway bar endlinks, wheel alignment to start with.

Hind sight after throwing money at the STi is making it easier to work out what i want to do and what i need to do to enjoy it on the track. Im thinking of removing the boost controller and using the power FC with 3 port to do boost control to simplify things from a tuning point of view, top hat replacement, some nice front brake pads and some second hand R-comps then driving the shit out of it at as many event as possible until i either hit a curb or something blows up.

anyway pictures

Oi ya fucken bogun.

K-mac strut tops are what you want. Mine have been in my Betty around six years without issue.

Forza fr6 brake pads are what I use Tony, they are a bullet proof pad. Never had any fade with them at all. They are reasonably priced too from GSL.

Those kmac strut tops are not cheap by the way, but they are a very smart design. Very easy to adjust and do wheel alignment as you don't have to jack the car up. Just loosen the nuts and tap them in to position. I think they were about $500.

Yeh will prob go with HC800 on the front as they worked really good on the sti and that was a heavier car. Front rotors are already DBA T2 slotted so will be fine (ran these on the sti over multiple track events and dint have any issue). It got fresh Nulon brake fluid when i rebuilt and installed new brake calipers.

I though the yellows where 550cc?

I don’t know if they’ll fit, but I’ve got some camber adjustable top plates that I bought to put in the rear of my GC before remembering I already had some in there. Brand spankers, I can have a look for them, find out what they are and all that jazz?

scored a used set of 16" A050's and rims for 300buks. H brace was more of an impulse buy haha.

Anyone used the whiteline Com C offset strut tops? can pick up a set for 200buks new, a new set of stock strut tops is going to be 180buks, so for an extra 20buk i can get pick up another .5 deg castor gains along with a more rigid strut top. Paired with a set of camber bolts on the front i can increase castor (using strut top) and get camber in the -3.00deg range (using camber bolts). Car also has a whiteline ALK aswell. I realise should just swap the whole lot out for a set of coilovers with camber plates but i don't have a spare 1800 or so buks laying around for something that will be semi decent and just want to get onto the track again
