    Bought a copy of Japanese performance magazine. With this and the foreign beggars music video shoot, the old girls had a busy year [emoji41] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    More like yesterday, but attempted to fit my baffle plate. Pretty much got it done. Not as bad of a job as it's made out. Got to the fitting stage and ran out of light, patience and tools. Bottled it and put it in to a garage today. If anyone tells you a sump change can't be done on a drive, they just haven't got the bottle. Won't say it's an easy one but certainly doable.

    Ordered a sump baffle, gasket, three bond and oil service kit in prep for the old girl doing a brands hatch open pit day.

    New to scoobies. 23 years old. No no claims discount. Insurance companies hate me. Hoping to find some good advice from wise subaru lovers to guide me through my first subaru journey. Picked up 03 Forester 2.0T import today, intend to love it more than my own family and build it up every so slowly. Thanks for creating such an interesting helpful forum! See you out there.

    Today I messed around changing motor for washer fluid. Ordered new tank. Washer fluid still wouldn't come out. After much frustration finally realised the problem. I wasn't pressing button on wiper lever.

    Managed to get it working but when I was doing up the 8mm bolts my spanner slipped hit the white plug and it stopped so hit it again and it started working again so thinking it's a loose wire under the cover going to get it back off again 2moz and check everything but when it stopped working the fan came on so they are connected somehow if anyone has the same kind of problem in future Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    On a high mile legacy of like 160K plus and no record of what exact last timing parts fitted you indeed best doing everything, all idlers, tensioner and water pump, use only japanese sourced parts from same oem as subaru use, for belts we normally use dayco for this type model (and for the forester too) . For the fozzy at under 120K all idlers good idea, tensioner and water pump could be fine BUT need inspecting, both can be checked and is a test procedure for hydraulic preload on the tensioner (carried out to SFSM guidelines) * if parts already none genuine oem then fit new as china bearings and even european are junk compared to japan mainland brands . If do water pumps only buy blueprint, japan aisin or oem genuine subaru . Cheaper pumps bigger risk than old one throwing away as the original pumps are super high quality and last well on standard subaru models. If buying kits/parts yourself then ICP (import car parts) a good bet . likely get some discount buying for 2 cars and stating a SOC member . https://www.importcarparts.co.uk/contact

    Got some goodies. Anyone have experience with these baffles? Taking a bit of a risk, trial and error fixing the boost issue I had at Silverstone. Got brands in 3 weeks so get this in an test it.

    They would be monitoring det on RR, hardly pushed tune enough be over concerned on det . Road run always nice to double check AFR and det and decide on more or less advance etc but most don't do it unless push limits to edge or have concerns that need further testing, have easy local good usable safe road or just have fixed working practice of always doing road test as it a legal ballache having any police or accident issues on public roads when testing/tuning a vehicle so if not needed they won't do it . Best way map is rolling road to start with as can create speeds and load points over and over exactly as need until parameters as want in a safe environment, also can see gains as measured figures which far easier than trying feel it in you pants, AFR's are one thing likely differ a little as intake flow and temps alter in real driving . Every mapper got some skeletons, wouldn't say duncan was the worse and shear volume of mapping he done means he long way from not knowing what he doing ....

    Haven't seen out 2017 yet but had the dates through for Japshow and Japshow Finale so get them in your diaries now! Japshow - Sun 10th June Japshow Finale - Sun 23rd Sept I'll be booking up the clubs attendance early part of next year to secure another good spot. I will make a new thread at that time so this is just for your information.

    There were two I think. The first pic is of the standard type and the second pic is of an alloy upgrade you could have. I like the ones in photo two personally but each to their own.

    Hi and welcome. All the reviews point it towards being a bit thirsty for what it is. For a first car I would say it would be a good buy especially if your after a subaru as their cheap to insure. Get a few years no claims under your belt and move up to a 2.0 na. Then on to a turbo! Good luck.

    Fitted new winter wheels and Dunlop winter tyres yesterday. I really like the look of them on the car. Hard to tell how good the tyres are yet as we've no snow yet. What do you guys think? Norrie.

    Which clutch depends on what power you have. The job will be a lot more difficult than smaller cars. Don't get a paddle clutch. Great for launching and racing but horrible for town/traffic/hillstarts.

    when say windows, fronts rear or both ! Front motors are troublesome as the motor housing faces down and collects water over time but symptoms of that normally slow and weak window movement.Check glass for alignment to seals as adjustable guide blocks keep frameless glass on course and if these out noise can be due to glass alignment off . Wiping seals down with silicone spray and lubing glass tracks with white lithium spray grease good practise . Motor removal pretty easy if know how do it but if don't can turn into a disaster, I can do some pics and basic pointers on removal if need arises . Don't pamic over sourcing motors as that pretty easy . Mirrors probably crusty mechanism, can try some careful application of contact spray or wd40 mixed with cycling operation and see if improves .

    Other thing to do before engine fitted is a new set of heater plugs, see post on here for info on heater plugs .

    Don't bother, part of issue is the short block as they flex around main bearings and that helps the early crank versions fail . They done about 3 crank and possibly 4 short block revisions and you best looking into fitting a better revision engine to your fozzy . We actually got one in to do as above, purchased with same old crank failure (they worthless once busted which was nice for me buying but a killer for owners) :-/ and will be sourcing a used ee20 to get it back running in the new year .

    Got my cars final map done today at Scooby Clinic after the engine build they done for me and its produced an impressive 350BHP and 390 Torque for its mods, can't believe how much power they managed to get out of it I can't recommend them enough. Top work, very quick replies on any social media, always happy to help, I am very happy to now go and enjoy the car at last! :)

    Sorry but it’s just entered my head. If it’s 280hp, then it’s been remapped, 225ish standard. Find out who done it and ask for proof. A bad map can cause problems too.

    Hi Steve Yes, at the moment, that will be the best I think. You can use the code CFS for 15% off the Millers CFS, but that won't take any discount off the filter, so I guess it will work out about the same in total. Cheers Tim

    Hi welcome to S.O.C forum :) And as for you're problem probably better asking other sections of the forum really as this is used to to introduce yourselves so many times gets over looked. I'm going to pass the book with this as I'm not to sure myself and I'd recommend ringing a chap up at Sheffield Subaru services for his advice I appreciate not local to you bu hes a top bloke and would maybe be able to advice better than me. 0114 243 0099

    Pedders are now doing driveshaft kits, I know they are available for the fox so I presume they will be available for other models, if they are made as well as the suspension they should be a good bit of kit Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
