Thread: New bloke in WA

  1. Default New bloke in WA

    Hello to all members on this site. I have been reading it with interest over the last 2 weeks, last weekend I bought a '06 MPS 6.

    It is in liquid silver colour and has been de badged with black wheels and black painted sunroof panel.

    Mods I have found are: Tial wastegate, Turbosmart BOV, Turbosmart e boost control, K&N pod filter, 3" exhaust, I think I have a 3" dump pipe. All this turbo stuff is very new to me.

    I have had mostly v8 Holdens and still have kept my 80 series cruiser with the 6.5 L Chev motor. I did some looking for a new 'fun car', tried the Golf GTI but it frlt too small as I am 202 cm tall. I was introduced to the MPS from an online search and really liked what I saw.

    So, I am still learning about all this new type of vehicle. Jeez, last month if someone talked about a 'wastegate' I would have thought they were talking politely about their arse !

    Anyway, have been reading lots of info and getting familiar with the car, I adjusted the D2 shocks today, put then up by about 25mm.

    I am completly new to the MPS fellers so I may ask some ridiculous questions, please have patience.....

    Also, the e-boost controller has me worried that this was done by someone from the subie/evo world...

    Thanks for the welcome gents, appreciate it.

    I have turned the e boost controller off as I am not 100% on it's operation as yet.

    I have got an issue though and will post it in the tech section.

    Post up a picture of the engine bay...
    More specifically the area behind the engine...

    It sounds like there has been a lot of mods done

    From stock, to GT3071, to substantially less modded, many lessons learned!

    Pod filter would imply a sri or cai as well I reckon, does sound very heavily modified! Wonder if the mounts have been done, and more importantly the hpfp!
