New toys installed by Garage88 - and thanks to Michael and Nghi for their work on the install

1. HKS dump pipe and front pipe and
2. Cusco front and rear swaybars


No detectable increase in noise (thats what I wanted), and first impressions from the drive back is improved throttle response (more shove, especially down low)

Retune with Matt booked in late May... Happy times ahead!

And special thanks to Henry (rrussh) for convincing me to get the HKS dump and front pipe :)

Cripes I'm such a n00b... :shock:

So... GenV's have:
a (very) low mount turbo?
no heat shielding on the headers?
no undertray?

Sensational stuff! :)

Thanks for the feedback fellas! - very happy with the new mods.... better driveability = winner

Dave (dubbwah) - havent really pushed it through any corners yet, I'm gonna wait til the double demerit points weekend is over before I start having some fun

Benny - yeah I understand the location of the turbo on the GenVs was a big difference to that of the Gen4s. There is an undertray, G88 had to take it off as they had to lower the whole subframe in order to install the dump pipe (dont ask me why subaru did it that way)... so Phat advised to install the cusco front swaybars at the same time. its like a 3hour job

Chris - was good to see you, Mick and Leo again... your car is so recogniseable with the new wheels!

Cheers Mick and Leo - good to chat again, and thanks for the photo Leo :). Hope all goes well with your "new" car Mick!

I went for a drive out to northmead this morning, and had a bit of fun around some corners. The two big differences I can describe are: flatter around corners, and feels like it sticks to the road like glue (when cornering)

Definitely more low down "shove" with the new hks dump pipe.... power delivery under acceleration feels smooth. I'm really glad I went with the HKS brand :mrgreen:
