  1. Build continues here with the new owner -
  2. Yes mate! Just logged in to check my account and found you here Tobz! Loving that you're keeping the build updated
  3. After looking more into the current market and prices, I'm going to be dropping the price down to $22,000 The original price of $24,500 probably was a bit outside of what they seem to be currently going for. Open to offers, just not swaps.
  4. This car represents great value at $24,500. I'm not looking for swaps or time wasters. Contact: 0408257613 I've moved onto different hobbies and the car rarely gets driven, as you can see by the amount of KM I have put onto it since importing. Located Canberra, currently registered however will need to go over pits for the name change. I have the stock exhaust to help with this. YEAR: 2000 MODEL: SERIES 2 COLOUR: Pearl White (rare) KM: 138,000KM (Imported with 97,000) INFO: I'm the first and only Australian owner, the car was imported through Iron Chef Imports in 2013, with only 97,000km, Grade 4B. Stock sleeper look, nothing flash in the engine bay. Regularly serviced by Import Parts and Mechanical Canberra. Unfortunately, no service log book as originally the servicing was done by myself and mechanic friend. TUNE: Full flex tune thanks to DVS Tuning Newcastle E85 power output: 287rwkw Pump 98 power output: 255rwkw Boost 20PSI and tapers to 16PSI HEART: Adaptronic ECU Manifold air temp sensor (nice and safe) MAP sensor tuned (nice and safe) Hypergear ART45SAT turbo Zeiotronix flex fuel gauge Flex sensor NPC HD Organic Clutch (rated to 350rwkw) FUEL SYSTEM: Walbro 255 E85 fuel pump 1000cc E85 rated Bosch injectors Aeroflow micron fuel filter (suited to E85) Splitfire coilpacks EXHAUST/INTAKE/COOLING: 3inch, with mufflers and high flow cat Blitz return flow intercooler (legal no holes cut) Apexi Power Intake Panel Filter Turbosmart Kompact Plumb Back Blow Off Valve Thick Alloy Radiator WHEELS/SUSPENSION: Varrstoen ES2 rims (very nice stance) Federal 595 tyres Rear MCA blue coilovers (brand new set ready to go in the front) Front HKS coilovers OTHER: Xenon headlights (expensive and rare) Aftermarket front bar with air vents Imobaliser and alarm system DAMAGE etc: Few scratches and the classic gravel chips on the front bar Dint on the bonnet as seen in the picture, not substantial.

  5. Hey, yeah timing belt was done and the noise appeared around the same time
  6. Cars just been sitting around and being driven every now and then. Haven't put aside the time to pull things apart or anything yet. When I get the motivation then I will
  7. Hey mate, thanks for the info. I'm actually running just a genuine timing belt. Someone actually presumed the same thing when they heard the noise so maybe it is a touch too tight and makes it sound like the gates do. I purposely didn't get a gates because I saw so many posts about them being loud.
  8. Good on you dude! Life changes are way easier than a diet. 10kg is a great achievement!
  9. Sorry dude, quit a couple of years ago. That place went downhill quickly as soon as TPG purchased it.
  10. From all the threads I have read, it seems return flow is not ideal for trying to get past 250rwkw on 98. They just aren't efficient enough. Plenty of people have made more power but it's normally with bigger turbos and better setups. Tuner didn't mention anything about high IAT or timing issues on mine, it seemed though to have pressure drop across the intercooler. Post intercooler it would hit 20psi and bleed down to 16psi, pre intercooler it would hit 20psi and hold around 19psi. Enjoy the 250rwkw though and if you feel like chasing down the issue then do that once the 250 gets boring, that's what I'm doing
  11. Trader prefix is a great idea, I don't think anyone minds them posting in the FS/WTB section. As long as it's distinguishable and they can't spam shit. Eg. One trader just dumps a massive number of posts for every item they are selling. Another idea is giving them maybe a gold prefix for items that are on-sale but give them a set number of these per month or something. Also have them agree they can only use it when the item is actually on-sale. I think also having the Wanted To Buy down the bottom of that list won't fix your issue. People are going to see the first few options, maybe see the traders but then won't make it all the way to the bottom to see the "wanted to buy"
