A “Slam Dunk” is what Blake Wotton has achieved with his SH9 XT.

After purchasing the car completely stock 2 years ago, Blake has travelled the endless modification path culminating in one of Australia’s finest examples of the model.

Now toting a recently implanted new, forged engine courtesy of the spanner men at Ichiban Imports, this Foz will be sure to put out some respectable killer wasps and surprise many an Evo or WRX Driver.

Not willing to settle on a built motor alone, Blake opted to upgrade the car to a 6 Speed Transmission and associated driveline components to avoid the 5 speed pitfalls expected with the power the new engine will generate.

The car is currently sporting a run in tune and will soon be tweaked to higher power outputs. Target power for the built motor and turbo combo is 280 awkw running on 98 fuel. Blake has plans to convert to E85 in the future when availability is expanded.

Braking has also been looked after with a Brembo Front & Rear upgrade including drilled and slotted rotors. The calipers were overhauled and a fresh coat of minty green 2 pack added to make them really pop.

In the handling department Blakes Foz rides on BC BR Coilovers courtesy of Ichiban Imports and Whiteline F & R sways with matching end links.

Interior wise the front seats have been upgraded to MY 11 WRX pews.
