GTX2867R - My new turbo

This is my new GTX2867R Gen 1 Ball Bearing turbo

This unit was designed as a direct replacement for the VF46 and 52, making it a piss easy install. I cannot wait to get this thing on the car. Not long now, only a few more things to get a hold of before it goes in for a tune... which is mid october....

Shit I need to get a boogie on :lol:

I bought new wheels... again - Rays Gram Lights 57 Transcend

Postby marcus.bspec » Sat Aug 01, 2020 10:03 pm

So those of you who know me personally know that I've been searching high and low for these wheels in this spec. As far as I'm aware they're due to be discontinued so I was stoked to come across some

As much as I love the 57DR's I had originally, I couldn't go past a set of these...

These are my new Rays Gramlight 57 Transcend's, 18x9.5 +39 in Rays Satin Bronze.

They are currently wrapped in 265's which is MASSIVE for this car...

To remedy this I have already purchased new Hankook Ventus RS4's to go on, in the meantime a good friend of mine will be making a new home for my 57DR's on his GRB WRX :)

I'm very interested to see how the GTX2867R goes. Eg. ease-of-fitment and responsiveness (incl. part throttle) as well as dyno curve obviously :P

Judging by others' experiences with them, I'd say good fitment would be a given. But yes, very eager to see how it affects drive-ability and response :)

Fitting the 57 Transcends

Postby marcus.bspec » Sun Aug 02, 2020 10:29 pm

So the 265's make it barely possible to leave my driveway without scrubbing, but new tyres will be getting fitted this Saturday coming. Then I can re-tweak my suspension and alignment :)

Nonetheless I still mounted the 57 Transcends out of curiosity and I cant say I was at all disappointed... They look wicked

I'm genuinely stoked that I came across a set of these, my favourite set of wheels on this car so far

Looking awesome, sits beautifully, look forward to seeing the tune, with the new turbo. Hope the new tyres solve the scrubbing issue.

Thanks heaps! The wheels came with the tyres when I bought them, but I couldn't resist a test fit.

It previously had 255's which didn't rub, and i'll now be going down to a meatier 235 tyre, so there shouldn't be any issues there :)
