Hi Guys I have come to the conclusion that my GTIR is going to be better appreciated by a fellow enthusiast with more enthusiasm than I. so I would draw your attention to my project thread to build your knowledge of the car. This car is truly amazing and has been passionately completed. http://www.gtir-motorsport-club.com/t6749-project-mid-life-chrisis-third-time-lucky There are several dyno run videos in the above thread. The spec I will pop in here if you don’t have the time to read the 5 pages of thread. A bit about me: I have owned 3 of these Cars over the last 15 years my first was a total nut and bolt rebuild but this had to go as I was a student , the second was a bit of a gamble as it had fair power but was rusty and very tatty . This was swapped for a new CLIO 182 and now with about a 8 year gap I have come back with number 3 . both the past cars are documented on the GTIROC forum as I was a member on there from around 2002/3 So I bought the car around 10 months ago from a fellow enthusiast form the GTIROC site based in Wales. He had the car for 12 years with him being the second owner from import ( the past owner was the importer) the car was very well looked after by this chap( garaged) and has done his research when sourcing parts and building From what I can see looking back over old mots the car has only covered a few thousand miles over the last 10 years most of the miles I have put on it. The car has visited Bob on 2 occasions to get a good looking over and a very detailed tune. ( the man is a legend) and I am sure he will vouch for this car and it condition/spec By the time I came to it the past owner was selling due to family commitments. With that’s said I will be looking at growing my family in the near future so won’t be able to enjoy the car as much as I like. So on to the car, I have a very large and detailed folder of all recipes MOTs, tax discs, documents, printouts etc . This many thousands of pounds. The spec is: Forged JE 87mm Pistons 2mm HKS head gasket Stock cams GT3076R turbo Apexi Power FC pro (plus commander) Polished and modified standard manifold XS Power external waste gate 3mm PTFE inlet manifold gasket Quality intercooler and pipework Z32MAF Oversize Alloy Radiator Blitz LM induction kit Oil breather recirculation kit Gizzmo boost controller Custom 3" front exit exhaust but there is a 4” can at the back for asthetics Tail 50mm BOV BCR8ES plugs SARD 1000cc injectors Kyosan 390l/h fuel pump Stock fuel pressure reg OS Giken twin plate clutch and flywheel ( so so easy to use) Hks twin spark ( helps stop spark blow out at very hi boost) Cat 1 alarm with 2 remotes and keys ( central locking ) Drivetrain: Quaife gearset in standard box and this is not as noisy as you might think [/s Suspension: New front shocks ( less than 300 miles ) Tein Pillow Ball Top mounts Front Cusco strut brace Rear Nismo strut brace The car is lower by around 25 to 30mm all round Wheels: Redline Innovit 17” in white Toyo Proxes T1 tyres Brakes Front: HiSpec Monster 6 Pot Calipers Grooved 300mm discs Goodrich braided hoses all round EBC Red-stuff pads Rear: Standard calipers Choice of soft pads or red stuffs . Exterior: 7/10 Full Subaru World Rally Blue respray Front bumper cut out and meshed ( painted) Clear indicators Clear side repeaters The car could ideally do with a respray as the front NS wing is bubbling and the rear arches are starting to blister . I will add lots of photos over the next few days. The spray job I would give a 7/10 and the car has a few very small marks ( mainly where my son has driven his cars over the front bumper. Interior: 9/10 The condition is very good for its age with the only down side the dah having cracks in it. I will supply a new dash board with the sale Apexi turbo timer Gizzmo boost controller GReddy boost gauge in pillar pod New Duracell battery relocated in the boot in a marine battery box. The car has a Sony iPhone stereo original parcel shelf with 6x9s that are quick release and a set of Sony door speakers so it sounds nice and clear but nothing by modern standards. The interior is really well looked after with all the stock mats .everything works perfectly. Steering wheel is a “personal” number I have a new complete dash to fit that will be sold with the car Proven power 475bhp at around 1.65 bar but I am told ( Bob) that there is more in there that will bring the figures closer to 550bhp est. The car over fuels easily can be a pig to start when warm and I have noticed the front discs will need skimming as there is vibration under hard braking from speed. The cars condition is good and the chassis is strong (7.5/10) no welding has been done under the car and it is still solid. The interior is a 8.5/10 the only thing letting it down is the driver’s seat has a loose stitch revealing a very small hole. ( fingertip size) and the dash has cracks( but I have a good replacement ready to go in) . This car drives very well and boosts without any issue the car as you can image is very quick ! the car rides very very smoothly and is great for daily driving . ( maybe a bit soft for the hard core of you) . I use the base boost of 0.95 bar for running around , the next stage is about 1.4 then the top is 1.65. but I don’t really use that as I’m a cautious driver ( lol) So the mileage of the car is 100k miles over its life with only a few thousand done in this country and even less since the big power unit has been in. It has been run on shell v power since I have had it. There are no concerning knocks or clucks and it drives very straight and true. It has a HPI check and has never been involved in a accident. The car has sat in my man cave for most of the time I have had it and I am in no rush to sell it so I will not be taking offers on the car. I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have . the car is 27 years old with 100k on the clock so please don’t expect a factory fresh car but it really has been loved and looked after. It has 11 months MOT and passed with no advisories. Please PM me if you interested and I will get in touch with you when I get a chance. ( work commitments are very busy for me so please hold that in mind). The body work bits that are not so good. Front wing The pictures don't do it justice in my opinion. Someone with a bit of body work skill could have this car in near perfect condition. Please, I will say I don't want tyer kickers or test pilots if your geniuley interested please come and look over but no proof of insurance you will not be driving it.
