GRD STI Stage 3 - 340.0BHP / 430ftlb Torque

This car has the following Packages installed.

GRD STI Stage 3 Tuning Package With Optional Extras

APS SR40 Turbo - Specialist performance turbocharger with performance characteristics to suit modified engines of 2.0 - 2.2 L capacity. The SR40 turbocharger has the capacity to supply air to produce 440 hp with good turbocharger response characteristics.

GRD 3" Straight Thru' De-Cat Stainless Steel Exhaust System - Optimum gas flow and minimal exhaust back pressure is essential for high power. Exhaust system design parameters immediately after the turbocharger are critical not only for outright performance, but for optimum torque and turbo response. Free Flowing Catalytic Converters to suit this exhaust are available.

GRD Stainless Steel Exhaust Manifold And Turbo UpPipe - Made from high grade stainless steel pipe work, flanges and smooth flowing joining faces thus removing and kind of gas flow restriction. This results in an increase in torque, engine response and a smoother delivery of power.

Hyperflow Top Mount Intercooler - At nearly 2.5 times the volume of the standard intercooler, the Hyperflow Top Mount Intercooler is absolutely the largest top mount intercooler that is practical to install in the late model STI vehicles.The larger surface area generates a lower intake air temperature allowing greater ignition advance and more power.

Hyperflow Wing Mount Air Intake - Unlike ram pods which source hot air from under the bonnet, this system delivers cold air from the inner guard for optimum engine performance.

Syntek Motorsport Fuel Pump - A crucial part to any engine modifications, is the ability to reliably supply your engine with enough fuel. This pump directly replaces the standard unit and has the ability to supply 2.25 litres per minute @ 5 bar pressure. The standard pump generates 1.1 litres per minute @ 5 bar.

EcuTek ECU - We use EcuTek software to reprogram your ECU via the diagnostic port of the car. We retain all the car's clever electronics but re-map ignition curves, fuel maps and the closed loop boost control system. The ECU remains programmable so if in the future something needs to be changed then we can. The only way to tell that that either conversion has been performed is to drive the car. There are no visual clues. Even the Subaru diagnostic tool does not show that the ECU has undergone brain surgery.

Rolling Road Tested - Our Dyno Dynamics chassis dynamometer measures engine power via the driving wheels in an accurate and repeatable method. Your vehicle's dyno runs are recorded in real time, and printed out in full color for your records.


Optional Extras

Exhaust Downpipe Heat Wrapped - This serves 2 purposes. To reduce heat soak into the engine bay and to keep the internal pipe wall temperatures up to aid the removal of waste gases through the exhaust system.

Apexi AVC-R Boost Control - The A'PEXi Super AVC-R is the ultimate boost controller. It is the only boost controller on the market boasting an integrated injector pulse monitor. It is the only boost controller on the market engineered to increase boost response (up to 1500 RPM in some vehicles). The A'PEXi Super AVC-R is the only boost controller with an RPM-specific self-learn mode which allows the boost controller to memorize the boost characteristics of a particular vehicle and adjust the boost pressure accordingly. This allows the unit to control boost unlike any other unit on the market. Vacuum and boost pressure are shown on the unit's easy-to-see display. A series of colored LED's also serve as a bar graph and monitor for the unit's various functions. The booster controller is a boost duty setting that allows the user to control the amount of boost overshoot. The Super AVC-R is the only boost controller that combines the self-learning mode with an RPM specific overshoot protection feature for unparalleled boost stability. There are no dangerous calibration modes associated with Fuzzy Logic systems.To control boost, the Super AVC-R uses a high-quality solenoid valve as opposed to a stepping motor. This is the same technology that was used on the turbocharged Honda F-a race cars. These solenoid valves are proven to control boost more accurately and are much sturdier in design and construction than a stepping motor. The Super AVC-R reads information from an injector pulse signal wire from the vehicle's ECU and a self-contained pressure sensor. The signals are then interpreted by the AVC-R and used to control the solenoid valve. Gear Judge Feature allows full boost to be achieved in every gear giving huge gains in performance. Switchable settings allow for low and high boost to suit driving conditions.

DEFI Guage Kit - Includes Oil Temp Guage, Oil Pressure Guage, Boost Pressure Guage and Mounting Pod.


GRD STI Stage 1 Brake Package

EBC Red Stuff Ceramic Pads Front & Rear - This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking. It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a saloon car 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-InTM surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in.

EBC Turbo Groove Discs Front & Rear - The wider slot actually draws cool air across the pad surface keeping pads and rotors cooler. They also expel dust, dirt and hot gases better than fine slots which eventually fill with rust and scale and become ineffective in our opinion. The blind drilled holes break down surface gases when braking from speed but do not weaken the rotor cross section as can happen with through drilling, thereby lessening the chance of rotors cracking over time and heavy use.


GRD STI Organic Clutch Package

Exedy Racing Organic Clutch - Exedy racing clutches with organic friction materials utilize only premium materials to provide maximum resistance to slippage and burst. EXEDY organic clutches can also handle modified engines due to the increased clamp loads. Drivability with EXEDY organic clutches is similar to that of stock clutches. Pedal efforts will be slightly higher due to the higher clamp loads. As with all EXEDY clutch discs, EXEDY organic clutches feature high capacity spring center dampers designed to reduce drive train shock and impact.


GRD Stage 3 Handling Package

Tein Super Street Coilovers With Top Mounts - TEIN has developed advanced technology to design the shell case and stroke to bring out the full potential of your vehicle. These features of the TEIN Super Street Damper kit were designed with greater performance to satisfy all your driving demands. This high performance damper can be used for weekend racing and/or daily driving.

The discomfort caused by uneven roads or bumps are eliminated on daily street use. For race use, the ride height adjustable system enables you to adjust ride height and 16 levels of damping force. In other words, you can set your vehicle to meet all situations.

Whiteline Adjustable Front Anti-Roll Bar 22mm - This is the 22mm Front Adjustable Anti-Roll Bar from Whiteline for those wanting to play with the roll bar stiffness. Their objective is to reduce sway, or bodyroll, and stabilise a vehicle under lateral (cornering) forces.

Whiteline Adjustable Rear Anti-Roll Bar 22mm - This is the 22mm Rear Adjustable Anti-Roll Bar from Whiteline for those wanting to play with the roll bar stiffness. Their objective is to reduce sway, or bodyroll, and stabilise a vehicle under lateral (cornering) forces.

Whiteline Anti-Lift Kit - Whiteline Anti-Lift Kit (ALK) is designed to add 0.5 deg static positive castor to both front wheels while introducing a substantial amount of front anti-lift. The anodized alloy mounts coupled with the low compliance polyurethane bushings oppose front lift under acceleration while delivering up to +1 degree more positive caster. This leads to superior traction, reducing understeer allowing more power, faster acceleration and cornering. The additional static caster coupled with the new firmer bushings, deliver more dynamic caster dramatically sharpening initial turn-in response, forcing more consistent alignment angles through the corner allowing higher exit speeds.

Geometry Laser Tuned - We use Pro-Align Hunter 511 Computerised Wheel Alignment System.


Optional Extras

Tein EDFC - EDFC (Electronic Damping Force Controller) makes it possible for the driver to control the damping force by controlling a motor installed in the shock absorber while being seated in the drivers seat. Since the damping force can be manually controlled with ease to meet different situations, the driver can enjoy variations in the suspension setting.
