Talking The Big Kahoona's Journal (speed density tune underway)

Welcome to my journal!

I currently reside in sunny Dubai, and just picked up a 2011 WRB STI Sedan!

Cars I've owned

1993 Red VW Golf - Hand me down (more like snatched it down) SOLD

2001 Silver Toyota Celica GTS - SOLD

2007 Black Ford Mustang GT - Forgive me father for i have sinned. Crap. Wish i could take it back - SOLD

2008 Moonrock Honda S2K - awesome car. Loved it and still do. Will definitely own another one in the future. For those familiar with the car, EDM S2K AP2's still had the F20C engine. 9K revs + AP2 improvements = best of both worlds - SOLD



First Impression
Small power band, and really falls flat after 5K RPM. Floats around too much, and way too much body roll for my liking. Other than that, it's a lovely car which definitely has the potential to be something great.

Goals
Track time! This won't be a dedicated track car for now, but i do intend on spending a lot of time at the track.

We have quite a few nice tracks here, including an F1 circuit that has open trackdays every month

Lol sure thing!

Left my camera in a cab a while back so I'm going to have to settle for crappy blackberry pics for now.

Alright, so i've been looking for a set of coilovers and an oil cooler kit and can use some advice.

So far i think i'll be setting for the Prosport oil cooler kit (from IIR)

As for the coilovers, anybody have any experience with HKS? The one i'm currently looking at is the HKS Hipermax III V-Sport. They're about $1,700. The shop where i get most of my work done has them in stock (a rarity over here) so i'm hoping those are a good pick
