Hi all,

26 year old kiwi here living in New Zealand in a town called Whangarei.

I own a 99 GT Forester (I didnt know the GT model existed till I argued with my insurance company, then googled it haha).

Mods are as follow:

Lowered on KYB Shocks
Unknown Springs (In it when I purchased it)
18" DTM Blitz Wheels in Hyper Black
Exhaust
Full Body Kit
07 Scoop
Pod Filter (Not my choice but havent changed it yet)

Had a full rebuild 20k ago with 2000 Legacy parts.

My plans are to change this into a drift spec'd time attack type forester.

I have lined up a some slotted rotars, street race pads, adjustable suspension, and redoing exhaust from manifold area to the gearbox aera to mnake it breathe freely.

After I free flow exhaust and make it stop better (suspension will have to wait to go in) I want to upgrade the turbo, fuel pump and put a fuel regulator in.

Once thats done put the adjustable suspension on and put some serious negative camber on the back wheels.

My aim is to have it running 11 second 1/4 miles so eventually a new engine build will be needed.

I absolutely love subarus and have previously had a 1990 RS Legacy which was fantastic.

I have owned many cars, including an Evo 4 (Unfortunatley my ex wife purchased it before we got together and it was a lemon if you ask me), a MR2, 2 Toyota Levins, 94 Honda (or Acura in The States I think) Accord and even a classic 1979 Jag XJ6.

Also run my own car club here in my town called 'Black 13'.

Here to ask questions since my build is going to be quite epic and make new friends so would welcome a message anytime.

Im into other things as well, music, photography, im a bit of a techie computer wise as well. Love to travel not that I have done much and good food.

Thanks for reading and please say hi.
