I remember back when Ryan (aka Squiffy) bought this car sometime in 2012, being at what seemed almost stock ride height and saying he has no idea how people have got Soarers so low, with the exhaust being the main thing in the way. However, after going through a few different variations, including running no exhaust at all, he's found a way of getting to a ride height that he's happy with.
I love Squiffy's Soarer, very simple and a solid car to have fun in. Lowered on HSD coilovers with 18x9 and 18x10.5 XXR 526 wheels all round, the car pulls the huge dishy wheels off perfectly under the massive arches. His fitment was pretty decent outright, but my mouth dropped when I saw his recent Facebook status saying he wanted to fit 25mm rear spacers.
I was intrigued into knowing how the hell he'd managed this, but after a quick phone call he was round my place, and so we proceeded to spend the day rolling/beating/crying over how to pull the rear fenders out just enough to squeeze on the spacers and to tuck those 10.5j rears. But in the end, sure enough, he managed it.
Looking at the car, it may appear to be a very clean static/show car, but you'd be wrong. Ryan has converted it to manual transmission, but retained the automatic diff & welded it, and drifts his Soarer as regular as he can. Running basically stock power, bar a scraping exhaust & an air filter, he was interested to see what it would achieve on a dyno. Just over 300bhp was the figure, and it certainly pulls well.
For unknown reasons to anyone apart from him, it seems, he actually has it for sale at the moment. Not that I'm going to tell you where to look to find the for sale advert as I dont want him selling this, but he's told me he's on the hunt for a roof spoiler & wind deflectors for it, if it doesn't sell. Then, as if the 300bhp wasn't enough, he'd like to unleash some more power by fitting an FMIC and a boost controller.
I hope he doesn't sell, as I'd love to witness what this thing is capable of without the stock restrictive intercooler!
