FLI was contacted by a couple customers in Hong Kong in 2011 for some custom tuning services. There were two cars, one 2002 JDM-Spec Subaru STI Version 8 wagon complete car (right hand drive) fitted with a Link G4 plug-in stand-alone ECU, and the other car was a 2006 JDM-Spec Subaru STI Version 9 complete car (right hand drive) fitted with a Link G4 plug-in stand-alone ECU. The shop that built these cars is called OS Racing, located in Hong Kong, and owned by Joe. All tuning was performed on a dyno (until time ran out), and finished on the streets in the city.
There were lots of very cool JDM-Spec cars in Hong Kong. For those who do not know, Japanese spec cars are 100% legal and allowed in Hong Kong. Some of the rare cars found were, Subaru WRX Type RA V6 (yes, with the 5 speed DCCD transmission and a 8000 RPM redline), Subaru V5 Type R, a couple Subaru STI V8 wagons (with the wide flares like the sedan version), Honda Civic SIR and a Nissan Primera. There were many other exotic JDM-Spec cars in the city, but I did not get pictures of them.
Thank you very much for everything Alain, Gregory, Kolo, and Joe!
