    Day8 progress: Absolutely chuffed, bar a few seized bolts on the old turbo and exhaust that I needed a hand getting off it's all my own work and it's now ready to go to Andy Forest for mapping! Over the moon it's all running ok. It's been a busy weeks work. Picture below of it stripped out last week and the end result!

    Went away for the weekend with the Mrs only 150 mile round trip but having the "rev limiter" (mrs in the scoob) managed the whole trip on about a 3rd of a tank 😎. My antique sat nav did find a really bumpy short cut which the meister r zeta-r coilovers coped with really well ...... however I almost stuck the scoob in a ditch [emoji15] But that was the Mrs fault as she had a low cut top on which was far too distracting [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    did'nt take to many pics of this stage of the build but, made a fair bit of progress instead ;) cleaned the cams and cam caps , plastigauged the clearances on the bearing caps (which were fine) coated them in fresh oil/lubed the bearings with graphogen paste and fitted them with the cam lobes at base circle (lobes not pushing on the valves) .Set the cams in postion acording to the manual fitted the rear cambelt covers ,cam pulleys,all the new rollers and new hydrolic tensioner all that was left to do at this stage was fit the kevlar timing belt ,untill i Could free up a long weekend to fit the engine,because i dont have the suitable auxilairies,pipes,fuel lines water pipes ect ... due to the v1 long engine componets not being compatable with my v3 scoob .So i'll have to strip and clean them off my car and fit them to the forged long engine before i fit it into my scooby ;) chucked the inlet on top and poked the 550's and caps on top to see the finished look (again lol) excuse the !Removed! pink dipstick it was on the long engine when i got it ...:o honest as for the dog its always under my feet

    Yeah I'm keeping it offline for now, have handed it over to the police to decide what they what to do with it. Thank you again everyone, you've helped keep me level headed about this. all this was from a local garage in the tailgate area of Crawley, I'm not naming and shaming just yet as that could make me liable under some law somewhere, and could be taken to court over it. Going by what I've heard or read about with similar situations around the country... and yes, all these cameras and sat navs use gps, so if anything did need calibrating it would be the satellite tracking me 🤣

    I always use a two bucket method as if your car is relatively dirty you end up rubbing dirty grit all over your car and end result can leave new scratches and marks that can be avoided Autoglym stuff is good from my experience had a 2.5l body shampoo bottle and a 1l super resin polish from them that's lasted nearly three years which should last me to the end of this year Having a plenty of microfibre cloths is useful, I use separate ones for each step My break down of a full works wash, polish and wax is: Hose car down 2-3 bottle caps of body shampoo with hot water in two bucket method wash from top to bottom, do wheels last with wheel cleaner from front to back Hose car down again Clay bar the whole body using soapy water or detailer spray to keep the areas being worked on wet Hose down car once more Dry car off with microfiber towels and shammy leather Work super resin polish into the bodywork and allow it time to haze up being careful not to get it on headlights or plastic trim, badges etc as it tends to be a pain to remove it if you get it on these parts Buff off with clean microfibre towels Apply meguiars ultimate wax allowing 10 minutes for it to haze up and dry or in your case the autoglym extra glass protection doing two panels at a time so once you buff off the first of two panels, apply wax to another panel then buff off the second one and so on so you always have a panel hazing up while you are buffing another one. Once all the main graft is done next I use the glass cleaner round all the windows inner and outer Use wheel protector and back to black tyre dressing to get them nice and shiny Use back to black bumper shine on the plastic trims Lastly if it needs it I hoover all the footwells and mats and use an interior seat shampoo and dash cleaner to get all the inside clean and that's it I'll only do the clay bar, polish and wash every 2-3 months as it's a lot of work and takes me about 3 hours start to finish then just periodically just use the body shampoo and detailer spray

    Hey everyone. I picked up a 2004 Legacy estate a couple of months ago. Only the 2.0i as I'm not too bothered about thrashing it around and getting better mpg with my 2 dogs in the boot is more important for me. That said, am loving driving it and can see why folks do go for the bigger turbo engines ;-) My ma had an old H-reg 2.5 Legacy years ago while I was at uni and I got to drive it when back at holidays. Always enjoyed driving that and getting my own newer one has reminded me why. I reckon I'm pretty sold on Subarus now. The one mod I've done so far is to get the boot windows tinted for privacy and to help keep my woofers cooler.

    Have you removed the battery and washer bottle from one side and the air box from the other ? Little trick is to lessen off one side of the engine mounts and put a Jack underneath then raise it slightly till the block tilts and you get a bit better access, change plug remove Jack tighten mount and repeat on the other side Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Day3 progress from yesterday, fitted the uprated fuel injectors and 3port boost solenoid then sorted out the wiring loom on the inlet manifold. Afternoons job was getting the exhaust headers, up-pipe, down pipe and turbo off - every single bolt was seized and needed heat to get off which was a pain but no broken studs or threads which I was relieved for. Got the ported wrapped headers and decat up-pipe on then swapped the turbo out for the new better vf35 and got the decat down pipe on. Finished the night by fitting the Cobra Race exhaust.

    Started a big part of my performance mod project today and made a good bit of progress... started with the fuel pump first as wanted to know the new one was running fine before stripping out the engine bay which all went smoothly then progressed to dismantle and remove any big parts restricting access then began dismantling pipes and cables and labelled them up as I've been going along so I know what they are all for when it comes to rebuilding. Drained out the coolant and removed the rad and front bumper then dismantled the timing belt assembly and water pump and stopped at tea time as want a new thermostat o-ring so going to just get a full new thermostat tomorrow morning. Also debating removing the aircon rad and piping too as I don't use it much and the rad looks tired and has the reminisce of a bird imprinted on it

    To add to this for anyone who has a membership. Halfords currently have 20% off all Autoglym products, I haven't tried yet but the 15% coupon should be applied after.

    Hi all, I have a Hawkeye WRX 2.5 that I've owned for about 18mths. Pretty much standard apart from a 3" S/S decat exhaust from turbo back, Pipercross panel filter, Forge DV and intake resonator delete. Interior toys include a Clarion double DIN touchscreen headunit + reversing camera, Juice door speakers, Juice 12" sub, single pillar pod with boost gauge and some detailing. I'm currently in the process of refurbishing some 2004 OEM WRX alloys to replace the knckered OEM ones I have. On the lookout for someone nearby that can do a remap to sort out a few niggles with overboosting due to the decat.

    Clinic also have a reputation of charging over the odds and creating work that doesn't need doing. Regardless of if you've had dealings or not. We could use the same arguement that tidgy has had no dealings with duncan. It shouldn't be used to make anyone's point no longer credible.

    Hi Guys, So we have been having a chat about getting some show plates made up. These will be real number plates just printed with the SOC logo and info. Its a good way to advertise the club and keep you reg out of photos when at events. Using real plates will make them water proof and last, you can also drill them to be fitted the same way you fit your current plates. We have 2 sizes UK Standard and 12x7 for people who want the JDM sized plate. Cost will be £20 a set so you get front and back plates. I can bring these to an event or arrange postage for the cost of shipping. It takes about 2 weeks from ordering to get these out to people. This should give everyone an idea what they look like. Thanks Alex

    I have been quiet but busy since my last post; Treated her to new wheels & tyres, the sti style wing, front winglet spats, new plates and a new buddy inside. Next plans are to tinker with the camber and ride height and a few small cosmetics (front splitter, fog light covers & front wing canards) then start moving onto performance parts.
