What Have You Done To Your Stagea Lately?

$350 fitted.

I didn't actually look at how much you could get them online, because I do a fair bit of work for the roof rack place I got them from. I assumed they at least kind of looked after me.

My leather seats arrived!! Now to fit them. I thought they might be plug and play with my RS Four S, but I was wrong. Has anyone put leather seats into a Stagea that didn't originally have them?

Yes, and they were plug and play. But that was S1, do S2 have something extra like seat heaters? If so you need switches if they are not on the seat, and considering the power they could draw I'd probably run separate wiring too. Or you could just leave them unplugged and worry about it closer to winter...

Leather seats are installed!

First attempt: I was using the same power supply as one of my amps. Went well until I tried to start the car, and I killed a few Eng Cont fuses in the engine bay. Try again.

Second attempt: I ran the positive from the 12V cigarette output to the seats and the car started like a boss.

So thank you to everyone who gave me some ideas on how to do this. Now to clean up the old RS4S seats and sell them.

This looks exactly like the pile of shit i pulled out of mine. There was over 15kg of old wiring that was not connected to anything at either end!

Got to take a look at my M35 tonight.

Something very cool about being under the hoist looking at the manual box in place. It looks kinda bare now with all the AWD bits and auto missing :P

New radiator on, 6pd box in place, braided lines and wiring to be sorted tomorrow or late tonight i assume. All things pointing towards trying to turn the key hopefully this week. Tail shaft however probably won't be in till early / mid next week which is fine as other jobs are still needed (centre console / handbrake etc)

This week I drove the S1, RS4 to Sydney and back. 1100k all up. I have had it for nearly ten years.And has 198 on the clock. Looked after but not pampered. A proper work horse.

It is really the first long trip I have done in it. Never missed a beat the whole trip. Was driven hard and gave 520 per tank. And was so comfortable even on the 11 hour o/nite trip down.

Next on the list will be coilovers, looking at MCA, Blitz ZZ-R and BC BR RS.

Anyone running the Blitz or MCA or anything else they are happy with?

    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect 
    • Cheapest way? Spray. A wet kit with 200hp jets could be up and running for less then $2000. Then its about $16 per pound when its time to refill your bottle.
