We are pleased to announce that we have a MY2008 Type UK STI as a project car from which to develop our Tuning Packages on Subaru's latest model Impreza.

GRD '08 STI Stage 1 - 351.BHP / 380ftlb Torque Running Shell V-Power Fuel

This car has the following Packages installed.

GRD STI Stage 1 Tuning Package - £2095.00 inc. VAT, With Optional Extras

GRD Race Quad Exhaust System - Designed specifically for the '08 Impreza this exhaust is possibly the lightest on the market - a massive 40% lighter than the standard system. Using fully slip jointed stainless steel construction this exhaust gives exceptionally good flow as it utilises a very straight and smooth exhaust path. Complies with both track and road regulations.

Free Flow Air Box Panel Filter - High performance replacement for the original panel air filter. Constructed from a cotton weave which increases air flow by upto 40%.

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

Race Cat - 100% MOT friendly. Allows the high flow of exhaust gases, although not to the extent of a De-Cat section, yet still removing harmful emissions.
£345.00 inc. VAT


STI Stage 3 Handling Package - £1827.00 inc. VAT

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.


STI Stage 2 Brake Package - £2,314.21 inc. VAT

AP Racing 355mm Formula Kit Front - 6 Pot AP Brakes make an enormous difference to the Impreza's ability to shed speed quickly and in complete control under even the harshest of conditions. If you're into track days or fast roads then the AP Formula Brake Kit is an absolute must. Developed through technology gained working with championship winning F1 Teams, new Formula Performance Brake Kits are the ultimate brake upgrade. 18" Speedlines are required to clear the caliper.

EBC Red Stuff Ceramic Pads 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 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.

Goodridge Hoses - These race-bred brake lines are constructed from the finest quality hose, consisting of PTFE inner and stainless steel overbraid. They eliminate sponginess under heavy braking and increase braking efficiency while being abrasion and corrosion resistant.

AP 600F Brake Fluid - AP 600 Fluid has been developed for racing applications where higher than normal temperatures are being experienced and the ultimate in brake fluid performance is required.


Optional Extras

EBC Yellow Stuff Ceramic Pads Rear - Although a full race material and capable of high temperature use with very good wear life, this new formulation sets a new trend in race type brake pad compounds. The “bite” from cold is superb which is uncommon with race materials (normally requiring warm-up) and makes this a pad which can be safely used on the highway as well as on the race track. This new formulation was used by numerous championship race and rally drivers in 2004 and is truly a milestone in brake pad material development.
