Really loving the attention to detail on this build, all the nice new parts fitted etc, works wonders for my OCD

Cheers it's a mega long way of from where I want it ATM but working my way through. Lots of on going ideas.

Be good to get some people's views on suspension so would like to hear how people find there's with the spec they run,

I've looked at spending around £1000 on renewing the damper set up so these seem to be the on the list -
O.E shocks / eibach pro all new oem top mounts £750
Bc coils softer spring set 5/4kg £800
Tein super advance using oem top mounts £726
Tein flex coils using there top mounts £830
Blistien ps coilovers £1150 using oem top mounts

The car isn't a daily and will do the odd track day but looking for good handling not a super solid skipping every where car.
Currently running tein springs and handles well pushing it but drives ****e anything else .

I found the BCs on mine (standard rates) too stiff for road use of probably go for the Bilsteins or KYB AGXs with the Eibach (or even STI pink) springs.

Thanks for that do you know what rate they where? They are now offering 5/4kg which seem to be the softest coil springs I've seen the tein I think are 7/6 rate , il see how much the AGX are.
The tein fitted ATM look like there far to short only a few coils

I have a agx/eibach combo and a geo for fast road on my 96 sti wagon. I use the car daily and think it's a good set-up and when pushed it's probably the tyre ( Toyo) and my driving ability that affects the confidence in the car rather than the set-up. Incidentally never had the opportunity to play with the settings currently on 2 front and rear.

Right back from the ring,
Had good time and the car never misssed a beat. I did 6 laps on the last lap Ran low 9min.
The stock caliper with Godspeed discs and rcl6 pads just wasn't up to the job so been looking around but not got the budget for Ap / k sports etc and been looking at brembo but the gold wasn't doing it for me,
These latest gen set popped up so I've bought them.
They have newish set of PFC pads already.

I will over the weekend make a order at import car parts for the hardware and let alyn supply the discs.
Next on the list are refreshed alloy arms, CDF alk and poly bush
So now it's case of fitting these with new bolts and whiteline correction kit.


Half tempted to loose the horse shoe and undertray for less nose weight and more cooling but unsure what pros and gains il get I can use a whiteline brace to stiffen up the wishbone sections

Small update.
Alyn supplied some brembo HC disks to go on with the sti calipers, got some new oem bolts too.
Forge heat blanket to try help reduce some bay temps down.


Next on the list is coilovers as the suspension was far to soft on track so I'm just pondering on which set next to go with.
I'd like to sort an oil cooler and oil catch can too,

Check my thread for a hassle free oil cooler - size etc..

obviously you can fit bigger (see Robís (NL03Scooby)) thread for his install

Also just had the RCM Trak Attack Catchcan fitted to mine which is a nice kit with return to sumo if you have a baffled one fitted

Just thought I'd post few phone snaps of bits that I've purchased recently .

1st off prodrive sti sports cat this is the later bell mouth version.


A blob sti vf35 turbo


A set of sti pinks that I'm going to have flowed and calibration checked.



A OPB 3port catch tank plus a couple meters of black tubing. Not sure how / where it's going but something to look at.


A Sti group n rear diff mount that I'm hoping ties in nicely with all my others.


And lastly the brakes are on.


The car has its Mot this week so il be cracking on after messing around getting the bits on and joys of heat wrapping items.

Cheers,
Don't know about looking new but certainly won't get dirty while working on it,
Il start messing around with underneath once it's back together and all up to mapping stage.
There's been a lot of small bits done but all carried out by myself.
The garage is small so il spin it around lift the rear and start messing around with bushes.

Little more this weekend,
New brake servo, ( not doing one of these again )
Turbo fitted.
Forge turbo jacket.
Intercooler on.
80% there..




Now awaiting a couple bits, left hand fuel guard , alternator mount and wiring bracket are at the powder coaters so this is stopping play,
Need some de-ionised water to mix with the new coolant,
Thinking of changing the recirc aswell.
And some more wrap for the down pipe then we should be trying to start the thing. Really hope I've done everything correct,

The engine bay is now complete and best I can be bothered with,
It's all ready for mapping but that will wait as going to start messing around suspension.
Few pics...

Cheers but it's only a mini refresh. I can then keep an eye on it all better.
I'm going to attempt a couple sprint days and see how it gets on.

New alternator on and carbon brace.
I will be removing the rad stays and battery clamp once source another clean oem set.


Removed the aftermarket double din as not my thing and fitted a Ra blank panel and oem stereo. Much happier as all lights up that shade of green. And fitted a jdm hazard switch.



Still not touched the suspension as been to cold/wet and lazy..
