Default Jimbo's Version 7 JDM Bugeye STI

Always wanted one of these, was seriously looking around 2015 but ended up back in another EP3

But finally back at 8250rpm again

First thoughts on it are, holy smokes it bloody shifts. Fair amount of Lag below 3.5/4k but then all hell lets loose.

Going to take some adjustment to my driving with the AWD and turbo.
It also feels humongous compared to my Eunos I have just sold

Everything is immaculate, the seats have had covers on for the last 18 years!! They are basically new.
All the door trim and sill plates still have the original protective plastic on from 2000, Well they did have until this morning.

Upgrades:

Sports cat
HKS Mushroom Air Filter
HKS Fan Controller
HKS Boost / temp / pressure Gauges
HKS Turbo Timer
Rear tints
TGV delete
Air con delete
Mapped to 350bhp / 350ft/lbs on V-power
Exedy Stage 1 Clutch
Mishimoto Radiator
3.5" Exhaust system, came on the car from Japan but haven't figured what system yet.
Subaru body kit

I thought it was going to be overly loud with the 3.5 system and sports cat.
But the sound is perfect, I can get it off my drive without waking neighbours, no drone on motorway.
But can make plenty of noise on boost. Perfect combo!

Got a little shock when I planted my foot on greasy slip road and exited in a 4WD drift when boost came on.
Will definitely take some time to adjust driving style coming from the Eunos,
where it was flat out everywhere just to keep up with Mr sunday driver tootling along.

Anyway here's some pictures (from the ad):

Very nice mate. I like the wing mirrors over the standard units.

No big wing for me thank you. Would be interested in a spoiler of an s202 but thats it.

Not in current ownership of a type r, but had many in the past and will always remain active over on TRO as they are a good crowd.
