  1. Head gasket fail Noooooo

    I would say have a look at my "sticky" build thread for a few pointers but photobucket has removed most of the pics [emoji852] I'll probably re upload them over the winter , but would definitely eco colin (scooby ghost) and consider rebuilding the bottom end .As the extra strain of compressing coolant and the higher temps from the headgasket faliure,can cause the bottom end to fail shortly after replacing the headgaskets. Any particular questions or areas about removal and rebuilding , fire away fella [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Help, Engine Dead, What Parts???

    I know a few people with flat bed trucks but they're all based in suffolk , where abouts are you ? +1 for plugs , oil n filter . Might be worth checking that the drivers side cam cover and half moons are ok . As these are prone to leaking and much eaiser to do with engine out . Oil modine is the oil cooler that the oil filter connects to , not prone to failures but usually get changed if a engine has failed. To lessen the chance of debris being reintroduced into the oil system after a failed engine has been rebuilt . Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Prodrive brakes for impreza gt 99

    Most people on here use Alyn @ asperformance or Ian @ godspeed for replacement discs, pads and caliper refurb kits . Unsure if either do parts for your alcon set up but they'd both be worth trying as they're helpfull people and if they dont stock them , would probably be able to point you in the right direction Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. 6speed sti gearbox into Wrx hatch

    Yep , the 6 speeds are a straight swap for any classic , bug , blob and hatch 5 speed [emoji106] All you need is 6 speed box , cradle , prop , gear linkage and gear stick . The 5 speed clutch,fly , starter ,slave and driveshafts are all compatible. You can even keep your 5 speed diff and rear shafts if you find a 6 speed thats the same ratio as your existing 5 speed [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Being a v2 jdm it will probably have a mechanical Speedo drive and either that or the kmph to mph converter is probably worn . As my v1 sti's speedo bounces at least 5mph either way lol . Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. What have you done to your Subaru today ?

    Had to take the scoob to work today ,as it's booked in for mot . Can't remember the last time i enjoyed "going " to work before [emoji848] but 25miles of b road smiles ftw [emoji16] didn't like parking it in the building site car park though , as its not the flatest bit of ground and i do lack a bit ground clearance [emoji4] She past without any advisories and i was told "its cleaner underneath than most 5 yr old cars " Which aint bad seeing as shes 23 yrs old [emoji41] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. Yep mines steaming well due to condensation , just keep a eye on the temps especially after using boost . Both my Classics always read the needle middle of the gauge , once the fans cycle and I've never seen it read any higher . Although i quite like the smell of v,power and oil......... I'd like to recommend that you dont lick any more fluids that drip from your scooby [emoji848][emoji850][emoji16] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. Wrx STi brakes

    If they are fubar'd, give Alyn @ asperformance a bell to discuss a better option for a replacement . As he knows his scoobs and I've always been happy with his pricing and brand options [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. Finally got a nice classic

    Hi n welcome to s.o.c . Im based suffolk ,so not too far away . I use clive attowes 4wd dyno in Norwich for my scooby , so if you want to have a dyno health check pop into him for a power run [emoji6] Dont be shy with the pics , we like pics [emoji16] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Wrx STi brakes

    Are they definitely warped ? As if some pads and discs ain't put through their pases the grooves clog up . If thats the case sometimes getting a lot of heat in them (braking hard on a slip lane a few times) can clean em up . Might be worth a try before complaining to them . I warped 2 sets on mine but i think that was due to having red stuff & kevlar hard compound pads for road use .as ive done 1.5k on my current adb discs and pfc pads without issues (so far lol ) Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Rear Wheel Tracking

    Was the geo out and if they adjusted it do you know if that should have resolved the issue ? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Japshow Finale Santa Pod 1st Oct 2017

    Yep great day out , my 13yr daughter loved it too [emoji41] Was nice to see such a selection on the stand , i think we only had bug ,hatch and newer versions missing . Pull yer fingers out boys [emoji16] , stants was there and he doesn't even own a scoob atm [emoji852] I wouldnt mind just going on a rwyb day next year as well , as i could do with the pratice to do the old girl justice [emoji23] Nice to catch up with those i spoke to , sorry i missed a few of you and big thanks to Geoff for taking the time to organize us rabble 🖒 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. What have you done to your Subaru today ?

    Stayed dry for japshow finale @ santa pod today [emoji41] Although the scoob was flithy by the time i got there [emoji849] only took a couple of pics of our stand but hopefully someone else took better ones ? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Japshow Finale Santa Pod 1st Oct 2017

    Nice choice Geoff [emoji41] Shame it looks like we'll have a few extra spaces but at least they'll be a bit of space between us all . .... So nobody's scoob catches tin worm of mine [emoji16] Won't be doing the 1/4 my 13yr old daughter's coming along, as she wants to be a mechanic [emoji849] bless . Should be there by 9 ish though ,fingers crossed for a dry day 🤞 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Upgrade V3 STI bumper and lights

    The crystals are a straight swap , the bumper and grill are interchangeable too . The indicators on v1 to v4 are the same but you'll need to fit v5 onwards indicators along with the v5 onwards bumper . I'm fairly sure the fogs are standard fitment on all classics but the v5 onwards fog covers are different to earlier ones for sure. Can't help with the dash compatibility , although the v4 onwards has the facelift interior im not sure about the clocks . Saying that ive seen a few newage (bug onwards) full dash and clock conversions in classics , so anything's possible Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
