    I'm looking to get $12K for it as is, slightly negotiable if there's some parts on it you don't want.

    How many KW on the dyno?


      dont know, haven't had the new setup on the dyno, was street tuned when the new engine went in. Old motor with V6 STI heads/cams, similar bottom end and a GT3082 made 260kw atw on 19psi at Southern Motorworks mainline in Woollongong, and 240kw atw at Godzilla motorsport's dyno dynamic unit in QLD. New setup is significantly better and doesn't drop off after 5500rpm like the old setup

        This pretty much my perfect do it all daily. Carry the bike, ferry relos from the airport, tow-bar for basic duties. Very nice.

        Does the cruise still work?

          yep, and funnily enough that was my first question when I bought it from Sydney back in 2007


            Was there alot done to it when you got it back in 2007 work wise? Also is there much to keep an eye on reliability wise?

            Trying to convince my brother to go halves, I love it but he rkns big mods mean big maintenance.



              it was a similar spec when I got it, with a built EJ257 from Southern Motorworks, GT3082R, different wastegate, bov, fuel system, exhaust, coilovers and it was originally running a plugin Autronic SM4. Original owner (GUMP from the rexnet days) had spent a fortune with MRT, TRP and Southern Motorworks building the car while he had it. Part of the reason I did the rework in 2013 was it was needing a clutch and then I discovered a ton of sub-par work from said workshops, so it snowballed to a 20K endeavour to build it the way I wanted and thought was best

              Reliability wise, I do the oil and filter every 5000 k's and I've done the wheel bearings/hubs once in the time I've had it, brake discs/pads when they need it and the occasional front right swaybar bush as it wears faster than the others with proximity to the headers. There's a toggle switch in the console under the handbrake to select between ECU controlled boost and wastegate spring pressure (0.8bar), daily driving I have it on spring pressure.

              Original bay pic and a couple of the dodgey workshop work found, the horrid up-pipe was conveniently hidden under heat-wrap:

                Very nice setup.


                  That's such good value. Must resist.


                    Where are you located?

                      What's the fuel consumption like when daily-ing?


                        In Brisbane,

                        does approx 13.5-14L/100 around town and just under 10L/100km on the highway


                          Hmm. That's just under my usage currently but my car has less power and about 400kg more weight.

                          Someone else buy this before I do something irresponsible

                            Yep I fucking want it bad. But currently have 8 cars and a bike. But I only want it for the driveline to stick in a super clean MY00 (if and when one comes along)
