    Started to give my car some tlc, been sitting on drive for a long time you can see how bad it looks in the pics. Been stripped right back and stone chipped and powder coated parts to go back in soon and complete rear end re Bush and brand new genuine bolts. just have to sort out re threading some nuts and making a few brackets that were completely rusted out.

    Yep, fully adjustable from inside. I’m waiting on an AEM wideband kit and my decat downpipe - it’ll be getting a road tune then for a bit more power but making sure it’s still fuelling well. Should be interesting!!!

    Got it from croooober in Japan, €120 delivered - they’re a lot more expensive elsewhere

    Can I ask why you’re using separate boost controller and not tuning the ecu and using the factory boost control?

    ECU can’t be tuned - in Ireland anyway so have to go another route

    I think it did man, previous owner upgraded the turbo to a vf28 and upgraded fuel pump and a few other bits and then ran into the same ECU issues as me. The other one was totaled as far as I know so this is the only SF5 STI in the country (as far as I know) I think there may be a Type-M manual around if it hasn’t been exported and I know there’s another type-m on its way from Japan as we speak there’s a few SG STI’s too but they’re rare enough beasts over here.
