Default GTWHOA's build thread.

Ok I thought I should get my shit together after settling into our new place and put some words and pics together about my car. The main reason I'm starting this is to hopefully return some of the inspiration I have taken form other local members builds.

Ok a bit of history. Purchased the car in October 2010. Car was stock except for a 3 inch catback.

Had a few minor issues;

Damaged LHS side mount squashed from a minor bingle.

Speakers were shot.

Any air that came out of the vents smelt so rank its not funny.

Here she is the day bought her..... A beautiful day.

Default Re: GTWHOA's Better late then never build thread.

So I replaced the speakers and a bit later the headunit and put an amp in to power the speakers. After playing around with the amp settings I now had decent beats I still thing the $90 Clarion HU is holding me back.

Next thing I did was fit a cxracing front mount kit. Which sorted my damaged SMIC issue. Also Removed the aircon at this stage to make fitting easier... That was a bloody hot summer haha.

^^The Cooler is sitting a fair bit higher now and the foggys have been removed.

One plus was I found the source of the hideous smell. It was a buildup of rare Japanese fungii growing on the evaporator core. Like little mushrooms or something. :S

Pulled that out and threw it away along with the other components. (still have the compressor just gotta pull it out if anyone wants?)

In this form I just enjoyed the car with a little more boost while I researched turbo upgrades, fuel upgrades, afc etc.

Somewhere around this time I installed a few gauges and got my evoscan data logger good times. Got a shipment of stuff from 3SX. 550cc injectors, walboro fuel pump, something else.. maybe a WB02 sensor for the jaycar wideband thing a made... Waste of money now running LC1.

Decided on 13t WRX cores for my turbo upgrade. Got a couple off ebay ummed and arred and even though they were in good nic I re-built them and took them down to MTQ in Sydney for balancing and had the exhaust bored out to fit the L turbine wheel.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND MTQ was about a 2 or 3 hundred to balance and port both turbos! GCG wanted something ridiculous like 1200 each to balance and port.

So this is where the old girl spent the next few weeks while I installed turbos, fuel mods AFC Neo. Was having a lot of rain around this time and because i lived in the garage the trust tarp had to suffice.

Install was pretty straight forward. I wanted the front turbo clocked aiming up to reduce pipe length and clutter. This meant a piece of alloy had to be mated to the compressor to mount the WRX wastegate actuator. I hade to get my mate Luke to help me on this one with his leet fabbing skills.

Nice one. Why does it look like you're sporting two wings in those last two pics?
