2017 Annual Maniac Performance GT4OC Dyno Day
Well crew, we had an incredible time hosting our first ever event alongside the NZ GT-Four Owners Club! Everyone was in fine form, and featured 15 cars on the dyno throughout the day with some egos being crushed and people being overjoyed and devastated all in the same day.
Now when you think of the New Zealand Performance scene the VL commodore might not be the first car that springs to mind - but this hasnt stopped Phillip from turning this once tame family sedan into a well kitted street machine with a rumbling V8 to scare all the little kids 3 streets down.
This Gem comes to you from owner Cody Robertson - a 29 year old Auto Electrician who happens to own a very limited edition run of the iconic Impreza WRX STI Type R.
Produced in the VERY small window of November 1998 to March 1999, you had to front up plenty of cash in the short 5 month limited production stint of this road going rally car.
When it comes to a high performance Toyota, most of us will jump to images of a sweet sounding 2JZ Supra tearing up the streets with a 1000hp engine and smoke coming out of the arches.
But for the owner of this particular car the Supra wasnt his Toyota Weapon of choice.
