Re: Over the seas 06 STI !!

Hi there,
my name is Ja'afar (kinda weird 4 u !!) and i live in Jordan in the middle east...
i wanted to share with you my experience with my subie and what does it feel like to have an sti here......:)
sooo this is my story:

i am 21 years old so i was stuck with an e-class merc and a Nissan murano since i was 18...



and that was the last day 4 the murano !!



then came the STI :D:D



the subie that i bought was second hand(had 17000KM on it) and it was pretty much standard just had the hks TBE, hks turbo timer, hks bov and k&n Typhon intake on it....

so i bought some toys 4 it like:
a replica front lip


another pic 4 the lip and my friends in the uni..

BTW the license plate delete is forbidden here ;)

perrin wing stiffies (dont mind the motec emblem, i dont hv one !!)


hks evc 6



DBA slotted rotors (5000&4000)



BTW this is the engine bay



this is the garage where the subie gets tuned and repaired its called Red Line and here's some of the cars there...












thats the new red line workshop




thats my bro car, he hates subies :tdown:


this is when we hosted one of the wrc stages !
subie ftw !!


now i have drove the car for 4 months or soo, then disaster came :(
the car was eating tons of oil and there was white smoke in the exhaust....
and we did a compression test and the results were horrible :crying:....
u all know wut this means.... we took th engine apart and found this:

broken ring lands






this happened because of knocking and detonation and those happened because there were no tune or what so ever on the ecu of the car.....
here in jordan we have no dyno or anyone who can tune the ecu of the car....
the only solution is to buy an hks EM from the dealer here (of course this is the only brand that we have in jordan) or call someone from Dubai to come and install a motec for u.... and that will coast you around 5000$ :eek::eek:
and imagine if you have a new part and you want your EM to get tuned for it !!

and still there is many guys here that get there engine blown because of this stuff and no body gives a dam about it, and i know many people who have got there engine blown here.....

so i have decided to build my engine and bought the following parts from the U.S ASAP (thx to josh at import image ;))
check the pic's

cosworth forged pistons


cosworth rods


ACL racing bearings


and some other stuff like the tgv delets, perrin crank pulley, and LC-1+ walbro for the tuning


and here is the motor build pic's...

the crank and rods after being checked and cleaned




this is my friend Omar, one of the best specialist in subies here in jordan !








that was the first day of the build-up






completed :D


bought the agency pitch stop (the stock was broken :cool:)


my friend (waleed) here doing the break in of the engine


afterwards i got the AEM CAI in the car (dont mind the AEM emblem above ! I've put it before i got the CAI installed !)


And thats my story Folks !!!
your comments are appreciated ;).

Re: Over the seas 06 STI !! new pics !

I dont understand why you would rebuild your engine if you can't tune it? Why modify the car if the ECU isn't going to be able to react? I would've just bought a new engine and left it stock. With The new engine I doubt you'll be making any more power than before.

that sucks you cant get it tuned.
thats why i bought the lc-1 and the tactrix cable....
i want to tune the engine over the internet.....
i've seen many sites and shops from the U.S that can do tuning over the internet......
and one of my friends got his evo tuned and the cars feels like a whole new car.....

Re: Over the seas 06 STI !! new pics !

Ahlan Wa Sahlan Ja'afar!! Im very happy about you getting the STi. Im from Palestine but I live in New Jersey USA, and I have alot of family in Jordan. where in Jordan do you live? I have family all over. My fiancee is there now in Al'Hashimee.

Ive heard of a guy named Clark Turner. If you search for him on NASIOC (thats the other big Subaru Forum, North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club) You will get a lot of good reviews about his mail and tune maps. Of course Im sure you know what it involves. You have to tell him what mods you have before you even start your car. And then he will email you a base tune that you must load onto your ecu and then you have to Data Log using the Innovate and then send him the data log so he can make adjustments.

You will need a wideband and a ton of other things from Innovate so you can properly log all the vital data for him to know what to fine tune for you.

Good luck

Inshallah everything will turn out great.

Ahlan brother. Some of family lives in Amman, near King Hussain's palace and in the city. I would highly suggest you go with Chris at EFI Logics. I have a friend who has a "CLARK TUNER" tune, and his engine is knocking and running 110% Injector Duty Cycles, I like mine to be in the 90% range. Chris' contact is EFI Logics (PM him on his screen name here: EFI Logics), he tunes up north of me in CT, USA. Tell Chris that I sent you and he will work something out with you, he is the one I would trust with my car;). Hope all is well!
