  1. Do rate the AST's highly. @DOOOOK might drop in as he is running them as well. Not sure on his name on the forum but a regular at Targa has a set as well.
  2. Put it on a dyno and had the car remapped. Didn't do any mechanical modifications to it.
  3. I had a tuned one. Was a weapon. They will do 1100km to a tank if driven without a lead foot.
  4. In a huge custom turbo set up or a particularly bad OEM recirculation setup a BOV is good for holding boost. On the flip side the OEM valve in a 225 is perfectly fine for 400hp. On the further flip side if you do fit an aftermarket BOV you will need to have the car tuned because the spring rates do not match. TLDR - Install for noise only, no performance will be gained and if tuned incorrectly will be lost.

    Meg 2 AC drama

    Changing it is one of the simpler jobs on these cars and is doable by anyone with a little tool knowledge and some confidence. Easier with a second person. De-gas. Take the front bumber off and the front left (facing car) quarter panel. Remove under tray. Wheel may need to come off but that's up to you. Undo all the AC connections. Use a hex extension and rotate the assembly forward to remove belt tension and remove the belt. Unplug the wiring and undo the bolts. Should drop out and just reverse the process to reconnect. Or not up to you mate. Good luck on getting it fixed.
  6. The wear is a tad more aggressive for sure but I don't feel like I'm going through tires that much faster. Maybe 10-15% faster than if you ran stock pressures.
  7. Welcome to the forum! If throttle heavy they tend to understeer hard because no LSD. Obviously rubber is always a personal choice. Try running 29psi front (cold) and 32psi rear (cold). This is what I daily drive on and it changes the dynamics of the car greatly. A ton of grip up front and the rear is lose. it isn't for everyone.
  8. Hello friend and welcome. Any off the shelf filter will give you more noise if that is all you are after, you really don't need an entire kit, just remove the batter box and insert the filter in its place. As far as exhausts go, the most common method is to remove one of the middle resonators from the car. I'd say no more than $120 AUD to get a filter and cut/replace a section of pipe.
  9. Ran RE003 for a long time on my Megane before I swapped them out and they are a very solid choice. Capable on the track and I'd presume on a lighter vehicle last more laps before they overheat.
  10. Yeah pretty much. I was going to type LS but then thought of course there are plenty of barras going around so changed it to simply V8. Sounds like a hectic build though haha.
  11. I think Quad was referring to the builds over in the UK not here in Australia. In that respect he is just stating the obvious that plagues countries that have far less restrictive rules than Australia (eg - USA, NZ). Even still, the amount of "chopped hectic VE's" in this country would beg to differ. We have just as many dodgy cars here in Australia, the only difference being that folks that do those builds have gotten slowly better at hiding the dodgy builds while in the other countries they just celebrate the builds. I've got friends that have (on their P's) built rb's into 350kw+ monste
  12. You can count on 1 hand the only conversions that seem regular in this country. Honda engines in lotus', RB's in various JDM and ADM's , rotaries in a few random cars and lastly the classic ls swap. Anything else is usually in a magazine in this country as it's usually a crap ton of money, time and very rare aha.
  13. Everything is more expensive when you live on a giant island haha. Carsales is probably most peoples go to for perusing cars but both gumtree (I'm sure you know this one) and quicksales are worth looking at. Especially quicksales. Sometimes insane bargains can be had.
  14. I think that was because we had a sever water shortage across the country (Vic was the same) so that was for an actual legitimate reason.
  15. The cops don't pay any real attention to Renaults. My orange one has different color panels, is lower than legal height, is fairly loud and has a bunch of completely illegal modifications. I've been in a line up and the cops literally just look at it, probably wonder what it even is and then move to the next car. The chance of getting pulled up is pretty damn low unless you are actively driving illegally and they spot you doing it. I wouldn't worry too much (if at all personally). Good luck finding a ride!
