    My opinion but nothing looks better than a clean original engine bay: Being fussy i need to get the toothpick out on the intercooler but ill leave that until i really have nothing to do with my time lol.

    After moving back to the Scotland from the US I grabbed a sub 1k Bugeye Wagon, unfortunately it needed too much work at its inspections in December to justify the running costs; I cover around 80 miles a day in commute. But I was Subaru Smitten and the basic reasoning behind the bugeye purchase still held true. Somewhat reluctantly I traded my Bugeye in against a year old Impreza at my local Subaru dealer, with 7k on the clock by and elderly local it seemed perfect. The XV or Levorg outshine it but I'd hoped with a little creativity I could personalise and elevate the humble Impreza; so heres the mods to date and a round up of plans for future. As I picked the Xpreza up from the dealer; optional OEM cross bars, rubber front mates, bumper protector and full lined rubber boot and seat backs and OEM fold out neoprene mat First thing I have done is upgrade as many as the lights to LED. Functionality and utility are my motivations and the stock lamps were useless. Next up it was time to get the racks on and wind fairing mounted Now for some Rally Armour Mudguards And my Subaru Adventure Team Decals! Then onto Plasti-dipping the front grill bars which I removed before doing I've added some little pieces of additional utility along the way including the coin tray where the fuse flap is and this arm rest inner tray Todays modification; yellow foglight film In the works roughly grouped and in order of attack; - LED's in place of front Amber turn signals to clean up front cluster, - LED reverse light to increase visibility. - 'Dog' guard to stop gear from going through cabin and to make a platform when seats folded for camping. This particular one is head rest fitting, custom made and uses taught paracord in place of mesh which fits with the theme. - Paranoid Fabrications 1'' top hat spacers - Upgraded Anti Roll Bar/ Sway bar (20mm) with new end links and bushings from whiteline - Full Armrest / console rebuild with; - Sliding top cupholders, rear cupholders and sliding armrest - Larger all season AT tires. - OEM underbody protection. - Rally Innovations Light / Nudge Bar -CNC race tow hook install - Hood Damper Shock Kit - Hella horn upgrade with bracket In the meantime however i'm kitting out for a summer of touring and camping, after hyper light bike packing and hiking I'm indulging in some car accessories like a larger camp mat that fits the boot etc so that takes precedent right now. If you've made it this far here's the Xpreza in its natural environment

    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

    Budget and driving style will have a part to play . The 2.5 has more torque and low down grunt but isn't as "revvy " as a 2ltr . I forged my 2ltr v1 sti cdb myself for under £1.8 k including beer tokens for a machine shop 😉 Rough guide to what I did on a low budget ..... Machine shop work ...Skim all surfaces, 0.5mm over bore, valves re cut ,crank ultrasoniclly cleaned, and all components chucked through his "hot wash" Standard ported v1 sti heads with new oe stem seals and relapped valves . Mahle pistons, Brian crower sport compact rods ,rcm uprated oil pump , cossie h.g's , arp headstuds and big end bolts , acl bearings , kevlar timing with full belt kit , full oe /group n gasket kit and new block bolts . I bought a second hand aps sr40 (u.s stock location gt28) for £200 and had most of the supporting mods already (fmic ,550'cc nismo injectors ect ) Once run in it made enough power to turn my 5 speed into a 4 speed (on a tdo5 16g) . Now runs the sr40 @ 359.9 hp coupled to a 6 speed conversion. I run apexi fc ecu and avcr (sub £500) second hand which is no where near syvec's capability but at a 1/4 of the cost it works well enough for me 😉 Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    So been lookin at a pedders easy fit kit, do they they do a kit for my wagon, it seems that fitting v groove directional tyres will highlight any suspension or geometry problems you have going on, and my car was feeling randomly flaky before I changed the tyres on a side note, the wife did say to me last night, why is everything you do a rigmarole, but she pronounced it ... marigamarole lol

    I think it's due to the positive pressure in the fmic pipework and core pushing back at the turbo when you let off the gas. You could fit a weaker spring to the bov so it releases boost to a lower pressure or fit a recirc valve instead of vta [emoji6] Me personally, I like the flutter and have a stronger spring in my old school bailey's to make it do it all the more [emoji108]

    Gave the Scuubie a thorough wash + clay + wax the other day. Shiny! Pity it doesn't last with all the pollen currently flying around..

    Yeah you get a lot more induction and spool noise from a cone filter or induction kit . most only fit them over 300hp on classics as most fmic kit pipework gets in the way ,although newage sti's can produce 400hp + with a panel filter ,tmic and air box . Imo (once mapped in) the Only real downside to fitting a cone filter is it will draw in hot air from under the bonnet ,rather than colder denser air from outside the bay (like the standard air box does). You can help this buy buying a induction kit with a heat shield ,making up a cold air feed or position the filter closer to the hole in the inner wing that the oe box uses to draw air 😉

    I believe it'll make a significant difference. In effect, wouldn't the front and back wheels be trying to rotate at differing speeds?

    Seen as @Rps is dragging me to some car show tomorrow i thought i best clean up the car: Washed n waxed the body work Gelled the tyres Quick wipe around the engine bay Interior cleaned Properly cleaned the windows and applied rainX (love the stuff) Refitted the Mudflaps Painted the radiators brackets as they was looking worn (pic shows a bolt missing but its back in, thought i would mention incase anyone loses sleep over it ) Ran out of light to do any more stuff lol _____________ I have now decided though i am going to get wheels refurbished as i can see specks of gold where the black paint as chipped away. A massive fan of black on black cars but kind of temped to go back to gold.
