    Raced the 5 at boxer battle this year. Super easy to drive fast and much more fun than the GTR was. Performed amazing. Blew a charge pipe off twice near the end of the day though haha.

    Charge pipe re-fitted and clamped properly. And oil change done after track day at 112,539km.

    Something I've been putting off for way too long. Old element vs new. Ew.

    How do you like the Yokohama tires? I am pretty sure I'm going to have to replace my 8 year old rubber this year :p

    I like them. Work great on a daily driver car, held up well at the track.
    Replaced my coilpacks today. Car idles smoother, much happier while decelerating in gear, low rpm acceleration feels better too.

    Ordered Sunday and arrived on Thursday.

    And thus ends the relationship with the car. New owner drove off with it today.

    I'm flying to Edmonton on Saturday to pick up the new car. Yet another (my third one) gc8. Version 5 STi sedan. I can't get away from the boxer noises I guess. I'll make a thread on Saturday when I get the car in my hands :)

    I'm jealous, I want a single turbo subbie. The gc8 looks sweet! :D
