Say hello to Sleepy, the unassuming family wagon that may just beat your stock STI, Golf R, or S3.

The plan was to increase power to around 200kw at all four and then work on handling and brakes. Realising how much bum sag I had taking off with the TD04 I decided to change the springs before the VF34 made me do monos. Now with SG STI pink springs and a RSB it gets it's power to the ground and feels even quicker.

I'm a snowboarder and wanted to keep some clearance for those rare powder days at Perisher. This got me thinking that (for now) I would keep aesthetics pretty stock and have a legit sleeper, hence 'Sleepy'.

Good stuff.

I have similar goals for my SH (keep ride height, sleeper look, not too noisy, general order of your priorities) so it'll be interesting to see how yours comes along, what you stay happy with, what requires ongoing fiddling, what goals change, etc.

Just ordered my PW splitter from automotive superstore in Sydney. I emailed them and got $25 off and free shipping. Didn't even ask they just offered :D
Just paid for my VF30 so hoping to get that delivered in the next week or two.
Booked tune at MSR for end of Feb, pumped! He'll be installing the sti tmic, vf30, and providing silicon intake and sfb, fuel pump, 3 port boost solenoid, and a 90 deg silicon hose to mate the tmic to the turbo. Parts install and tune for a very reasonable rate!

The vf30 I bought turned out to be a paperweight, so I've got a low km vf34 on the way :D

Clutch was replaced today at rumble shack, Adrian did a stellar job and was good for a chat. I can't believe how long I drove on that sh!tty old one, so much smoother now.

Getting over driving around a boat so I'm more than considering doing the 'smart' thing and getting coilovers and a rsb before my power upgrade.

I really like your style of thinking! That's the same road I went down, keep it looking stock and keep it practical. But with a bit of punch under the bonnet :D (exhaust was measured at 88db)
I've got 200kw at the wheels, stock brakes and stock suspension (except 20mm RSB). Never had an issue, except it goes a bit light on the front wheels if you are heavy on the pedal taking off at the lights and it likes to wander in its lane :lol:
I devised the "Grocery Edition" based on a stock looking Foz with the extra punch :thumbs:

Yeah grocery edition for me is getting a little tiresome even with only 164kw at the wheels. I can't decide whether to go through with my VF34 upgrade eom or if I should cancel and get rsb and coilovers... I also need to fix the front cv joint with has busted so I figure I may as well do the whole package then...

Shoot higher, the R's aren't that quick.

Seriously though, all the fun is in the corners. vf34 AND suspension mods :)
