Here's my 1997 GF8 STI Wagon V-Limited, she's number 248/555 and the love of my life (hope the gf doesn't see this!). I've had it for just over a year now and done 10,000mi, been through three tires, an up-pipe, two turbo inlet pipes, an OEM recirc valve, water pump, a set of four pots, a set of front pads and discs, rear droplinks, various bushes, lots of hoses, a ton of rubbery bits but wouldn't have it any other way

I'll be posting lots over the coming months as I have done lots of documented DIY bits already and there is much more to come, although I plan to keep her standard in most places

First post here. Here's my 2006 Hawkeye Wagon. It's only an R Sport but still plenty of fun on the back roads around here. Got it almost exactly a year ago and put almost 12000 miles on it. Hasn't let me down once, except for the exhaust falling off but that doesn't count, right?

When I got it:


Wheels got a bit of a refurb:


New brakes last month:

It's a 110K mile WRX lump, with a VF35 and supporting mods, running about 320ish. On Brembos and MeisterR coilovers, and with a 20mm rear ARB to get rid of some understeer.

I've done a few sprints and things, with no problems so far (touch wood), realistically most events of that kind are a max of 2 minutes per run at full welly, so shouldn't cause too much trouble. I've also done a couple of events at Silverstone with 40 minutes lapping on the grand prix circuit, which is more of a strain, but I still drove it home with no issues

Nice thanks for the info. It's always good to hear from people with a similar age car and what their capable of.

New wheels went on today. Very pleased, love gold on dark blue.

Engine wise it's a Precision turbo, 2.1 CDB, AVCS heads and forged etc etc. 6 speed. Wheels are Rota Grids, nice and wide, with PS 4s. Rear saloon conversion too. Since the engine work (it was running 425 on an SC46) it's so much pokier and the AVCS is phenomenal, it doesn't redline until around 8750. But I must confess to not ragging then engine to that point. To be honest, I started out many moons ago with this exact spec in mind and have been doing it bit by bit. Just need to keep it running nice now as it remains my main car.

No laggier than the SC46, due the AVCS. Once you are in gear, anything around 3,000 you take off and don't really stop. The rev range helps and I would really recommend heads.
