Nice one. Bit of a noticeable difference to how it drives? :P

I haven't really tested it out yet but I already want a bigger turbo :mrgreen:

With the dump/tune and rear sway bar I put in a while back it is starting to feel like it should have from factory.

Not today but yesterday. Installed some STEDI LED high beams.

https://www.stedi.com.au/copper-head-hb3-led-head-light-conversion-kit.html

Went out to see friends in the hills last night and got a good test run over about 1.5 hours of rural roads and they make a massive difference, I'm super happy with them. I was lighting up road signs I would guess at an easy 200m+ and if anything the reflected light off signs as they got close was almost blinding.

I first tried Osram night breakers with a claimed +150% which were bright but very yellow and while they provided some decent reach the clarity was poor. Then tried some Philips Crystal Vision bulbs which are nice and white and provide good clarity but have average output which meant I was really missing the reach of the night breakers.

I also thought about installing an LED light bar but am not a fabrication wizard like Tobyo and didn't want to put a nudge bar on my car. I feel these are a good compromise and even though they don't provide a 'pencil-like' beam that proper spotties can they still provide ample light for rural roads and have a nice balance of spot and spill.

So much better. I've had the dump and tune for a few days now and it definitely pulls harder now with heaps of low down torque. I can't wait to fit the silicone pipes and the new turbo now :mrgreen:

Found the cause of a god awful squawking/clunking noise in the front end which was apparent every time I negotiated an angled speed bump or driveway.

Checked all the shock and sway bar bolts, it turned out that one of the front sway bar saddle clamp bolts was loose... so nipped it up and all good again.

Yeah, that check I meant to do a week after installation... well... I didn't do it, did I.

Live and learn.
