I've got it as 187 (Steel Mist Gray). I think it looks bluer outdoors! I checked your turbo thread chase_d, and noticed your pics are similar to mine - a huge range of colours depending on the angle & light.
At least I'm hoping its that....

Yeah same code.  Definately not many going around in this colour
On some angles mine looks the same, yet yours tends to look more grey/silver/
 
I actually got the paint shop to put a Scan-tool on it and it read the colour as Stingray Metallic 8T4, but after spraying that that didnt match either..

Visited the car today to help with the boost controller settings and check out the dyno action. With the new Berk 3" twin exhaust and hi-flowed CT26 in place things were flowing much more than previous. Hit 250hp at wheels but a bit unstable on boost settings and AFR. Will drop things back until ECU and fuel system upgraded. Got it to a nice steady 230hp or so at around 15psi. As expected the hi-flow meant boost came on a little later (vs stock ceramic) but it pulled all the way to redline. Bit nervous pushing it too hard on the stock ecu and fuel system, the list continues. Rubber, rims and take home tomorrow. Merry Christmas to me!

250hp is a great number considering your mods, who was the tuner and how much psi was the high flow running?

Yeah, hanging for a drive! The Federal RSRs will be nice to go with the extra power!
My mechanic is Brian Potts, Thew Parade Dee Why. James at MIA is his "neigbour".
I think the boost got to about 17 before James backed it off, the AFR's were getting a bit high. He's going to test out the injector duties tonight to see how maxed out they are at the safer level, dont want to blow anything up at the track.
These guys like AEM, I also like what I've seen from MAP-ECU and various others, I'm in no rush on the ECU as I'd just like to have the car for a while again!

Yeah I think federals have the best grip, I run 595's on my two and that's 230rwkw and they hardly break traction

+1 to 595 RS-R, stick like **** to a blanket, very easy to drive on the limit and progressive. Best thing I've ever done to the car. Similar grip to TOYO PROXES R1R, except last longer and without the price.
MR PLOW - you'll be about on the 440s limit at 250-260rwhp mate.

And one for the chart lovers out there. Pretty clear MRTurbo was right, 440cc injectors maxed out around 5500 rpm, 15psi boost, 235 rwhp. AFR rising to 12 by about 6300 rpm/16psi.
Will be looking for an ecu & fueling upgrade some time in 2013, and better not overdo it before then!

250hp will certainly make a difference next time out!
You will have to get into the 1.12's with the nex set up.
