  • Hello from New Zealand

    Hi guys

    Just thought I would say hello from New Zealand.

    I have just bought an RS2 in black, the car is standard but changes are on the way!

    We only have 13 RS2’s over here, and tuning is proving very tricky, a few have the MRC chip and Miltek.

    I will put up a project post when it starts, need to get to the 500 bhp mark!!

    Thanks to Paul from the forum for the advice so far, I am so looking forward to getting the Samco hoses!!

    Great site guys!!!

    Only 13 RS2's in the country!!? Well at least that beats Canada and the US where there are no RS2s (officially - there are maybe 3 that snuck into the States - but zero in Canada). There used to be a Kiwi RS2 owner (Rod??) who used to post on the US S-cars list but I haven't heard of him for some time. He used to wind-up a few guys talking about the quirks of the torsen center diff ("spider bite").

    To get to 500 hp is going to require a honking big turbo and a honking big wallet. You are standing on the top of long, slippery slope. Hang on, you're in for a good ride.

      Glad to hear that the tuning bug has alreaqdy bitten! There is a lot of information, knowledge and useful contact on the forum and I'm sure all of them will give you as much help as they can.

        New Zealand has to be the perfect place for an RS2 - The best roads I've ever driven!

        If you're ever in Papakura, watch out for my Grandad charging about in a blue Corolla (rare, I know ) - he's where I get my need for speed from!

          Nice to see someone else who lives in the Antipodes that doesn't think the world stops at V8 Holdens or crass jap imports.
          Currently in Oz with a good 'ol Rangie. Hankering after an S2 when I get home.
          NZ rocks by the way, especially the roads on the South Island. Gotta take some photos of the RS2 on Arthurs or the Haast pass!
