Sold the Foz about 6 months ago and been driving a high powered 1.6L i30 wagon :/

Anyway one night I woke up at 2am and couldn’t get back to sleep so decided to peruse Carsales and Gumtree.

A week later I picked up “Ugly Betty”!!

An 09 (MY10) WRX

Image

I couldn’t work out why this car peaked my interest..was it one of the previous owners fetish for pink??

Image

Or was is the plain, boring looking exterior..or was is the built, forged engine under the bonnet running an E85 flex tune putting out 280kw??..not sure but I think it might have been the pink lol!!

Anyway, so happy to be back into a foz!!

Specs

Nothing really done on the outside other than the carbon fibre wing on the back.

Built motor with only 6,000 on the clock

- CP Pistons
- Nitto H beam rods
- ACL race bearings
- EJ257 Nitrated crank
- ARP 625 Head studs
- new head gasket and gasket kits
- Kelford 268/272 cams
- Jim Berry competition clutch
- flex fuel tune
- ID1050x injectors
- DW65 fuel pump
- Blouch 18g turbo
- PW top mount
- PSR equal length headers
- PSR intake
- Mishimoto radiator
- PW CAI

Yea turbo and fuel pump upgrades can take it to 300kw+ but leaving it as is..light and super responsive!!

Glad to be back!

Ozmaen, good pick up! Sleepwaking will do that!

There's got to be $10K in that built forged 257 without labor!

Why did previous owner spend like that and let it go?

Your welcome here, Cheers Al

Good pickup with all that engine work.

The pink lights might be a niche taste though...

Welcome back. For ultimate street cred, please say the pink lights flash :)

Nice engine specs!

Sounds like a homophobe's worst nightmare - being pulled over by a car with pink flashing lights :lol:

A quick trip down to Sydney Motorsport partly today to watch Subynats gave her a good run and emptied the tank.

Quick detour on the way home to pick up 2x20l jerry cans and fill up with some E85.

Runs so much better and the power comes on so much better
