That area around the bonnet latch is bloody filthy, should be ashamed of yourself Laughing Laughing

Enjoy the session today. 6 months and counting till I can play with mine.

Well mapping day was a 100% success. Car is an animal - acceleration is brutal. Bob estimates power in the 430's and torque 400ft/lb - well happy and had great craic with all the lads who turned up and made a day out of it - Maca, Winston, Gary Blake, Hutchy, Locky, Thin Diesel, Phil & his dad and Daz!

Massive thanks to the big yin himself Andy Kindon and the master mapper Bob Rawle - what an awesome day bounce bounce Not Worthy Not Worthy

Trade secret Maca  ROFL No mate it's pretty easy. Once you have washed/cleaned the engine bay you spray Areospace 303 Protectant (awesome stuff) all over it, shut the bonnet, walk away and just leave it like that overnight. Next morning it looks like that. It's so weirdf because when you first spray it all over the bay it looks as though somebody has jizzed all over it and I used to freak out thinking it was going to stay like that. You can wipe it off with a microfibre after you first apply it and it still leaves a beautiful matt finish. But I liked the glossy finish this time.

Alan they aren't bent as in restricting airflow as I strightened them all out with toothpicks, it looks much worse than it actually is due to the angle of the picture and it was bright when I took it. Lucky!

Ahh right fair enough cause I knew it was nice and straight not long ago mate. Was wondering where you'd been as mine had less bent fins after 100,000 miles Laughing

Well since the car has over 430 horses and with this 500 mile mini-Gumball rally from Gateshead to Glencoe & back in a couple of weeks I thought it best to upgrade the brakes as the standard Subaru 4 pots might as well be milk bottle tops  ROFL

So I have bought a set of front AP Racing CP5200 calipers with 330mm AP Discs, new Ferodo DS2500 pads and braided stainless brake lines. I have also replaced the rear OEM discs with a set of good quality DBA4000 series 290mm grooved discs with OMP fast road pads. That should get me stopped pretty sharpish and keep me safe and well!  Naughty

Will post some pics up when they are fitted.

I am going to have to wait until the summer mate for a 6 speed - there aren't too many about at the minute and the ones that are out there are way overpriced.

Sounds good mate but did you not fancy going 6 pot? Or would they not fit under your revo's?

Id have been tempted to go D2's or K-Sport 6 pots if wheels permitted me to do so

Iain - The AP CP5200 caliper are the best calipers AP have ever made - made for track cars with massive pistons and are much better than the 6 pots - got them for a bargain price too. D2's & K-Sports are nowhere near them in terms of quality or performance.

i broke a crashed sti and was going to sell the box to mario but some dipshit desided to set fire to the trailer where everything was on (inside the shell of the car offcourse)
but as it wasn't my trailer i bought my colleuge a new one and now i must pay the bill for the fire trucks etc around 1500€ and got a fine for parking a trailer on the road without car in front....
it's going to court again wish i didn't do that now lol i bought the car for 1100€ so didn't want much from the parts i was getting of it
it's costing me enough right now haha

Yes mate - they had been scallopped too much and were bashing around inside the calipers so I went with the ones I know and trust as I had them on the Terminator

Yes I know Alan - but the bluestuff pads are the best of the bad bunch and they came new & free so I had to at least try them before laying out for a new set

haha fair enough mate, hope you enjoy your AP's anyway, when you having them fitted?
I have a set on their way to me now, 6 pots which should, god willing, fit under OEM wheels. If not I'll cry.
