GRD WRX Stage 1 - 289.9BHP / 280ftlb Torque Running Millers Octane Boost (+2Ron) And Shell V-Power Fuel

This car has the following Packages installed.

GRD WRX Stage 1 Tuning Package With Optional Extras

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.

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%.

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.

STI Up Pipe - Unlike the WRX, the STI Up Pipe has no restrictive Cat increasing flow and compliments our 2.5" Stainless De-Cat System.

GRD Cold Air Intake - By eliminating the standard airbox resonator and snorkel we are able to source cold air directly from custom vents in the front foglight cover. This helps to dramatically increase airflow to the standard airbox, lowering inlet temperates and in turn give a significant increase in both power and torque.

This package does require STI foglight covers, however we can offer these as an option on most WRX models.


GRD Stage 2 Handling Package With Optional Extras

Whiteline Control Springs - Whiteline Control Springs are between 15-50% heavier in rate than standard to deliver a reduce squat, reduced body roll on turn and a reduction in braking nose dive will provide a pleasing, flatter squarer look on the road. Lowering height of around 25mm. Complete set, Front and Rear Springs

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 24mm - This is the 24mm 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.


Optional Extras

Whiteline Rear Drop Links - These forged aluminium links reduce flexing and therefore effectively increase the rear roll bar stiffness; this helps reduce any natural tendency to understeer.
