    careful with the guy who sells you those stripes... i bought some a few weeks ago, took him two weeks to mail them out and when i actually got them, they were printed backwards so the MPS logo was mirrored -_- he's apparently sent some more out late kast week, hoping the'll arrive tomorrow or tuesday... but yeah, haven't heard many good things about him...

    Cobb AP is a good way to go to get some more power out of it without doing any huge mods

    i wouldn't have a clue about a feedback pipe, the MPS is kinda known for it's vibrations and rattles, haha, definitely do the diff mounts though, i sheared bolts twice in a year on the stock ones...

    His website is offline... I messaged him and told him, he sent another one and said it was up but it's still offline.

    Booked her in to get the drivers side door lock fixed, won't lock or unlock with the remote, only by key. They charge a lot for labor $127p/h.

    I'm super keen to detail it when it stops raining. Then I'll get it in to have the paint fixed up and maybe have the wheels done at the same time, then it may be hypertech time.

    Got a quote today from a friend of my family to respray front rear bumpers and the wheels in black along with brush touching a lot of other issues $1200 which is very good IMO.

    getting her onto the dyno next week as well.

    1200 for 2 bumpers ,wheels and touch up good? Whole respray for that much. Bumpers should NOT be more than 200-300 each from a 5 star joint. I'd shop around more

    There is NO way you'll EVER get a whole car resprayed for that much, it would cost almost that much in equipment and paint alone and I wouldn't want the kind of job a $1200 full car respray would get me.

    $100 per wheel including repairing the gutter rash, $300ish per bumper, one of the bumpers has a dent in it which needs to be repaired also. Trust me the price is good I've had quotes from other places.

    Went for a cruise from Newcastle the Wisemans Ferry, holy shit can this thing handle! I went up with a few friends on their bikes, had an R1, Hyosung 650GT and ZZR250, going up hill I left the the R1 for dead powering out of those corners in AWD is just unreal!

    I had no idea it could handle like it does.

    sounds like you're getting used to the way it handles already! wait till you upgrade the rear sway bar, it'll handle so much better

    Big difference? I've heard a few guys on OZMPS say they can get their 6 sideways? I've seen nothing but ridiculous amounts of grip, I can't imagine how they're getting them sideways, any experience?

    I didn't notice it to be very understeery? there a reason the rear swaybar is done?

    Got her dyno'd today, netted myself a tidy 151.1Kw

    I had 3 runs on an AWD Mainline Dyno in at Newcastle
    Run 1: 148.8Kw
    Run 2K 149Kw
    Run 3: 151.1Kw

    They would only let me have one print so I picked the first run which had the nicest torque graph for comparison later when I do a few upgrades.

    Proof:

    very nice base to work from.

    Is that MAP graph right though, 14 PSI?

    Too much "torque," not enough picstures of car lol
    It's Tony!

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    Sounds pretty right. Similar numbers to a WRX.

    It's just under 15PSI apparently 16PSI is supposed to be peak boost.

    Not sure where that 1 PSI has gone.

    I don't really have any pictures.
