  1. Be nice to see some of you so I hope to go if we can get a few going
  2. Welcome nice looking wrx you got there! What performance mods you got hiding in your bay? :)
  3. I guess that's one way to look at it, if you do that and it all's fits ok hope your other exhaust sells in good time :)
  4. Is it worth the hassle and cost of the extra adaptors and cone gaskets to get it on now and driving it like a granny or to wait a bit till mapping
  5. I got advised Motul Inugel Optimal as a top of line coolant that is compatible with subaru's picky coolant choices, the capacity is supposed to be 7 litres so I got 2x5 litres to have a bit spare and it's done fine so far. It's all premixed too so just flush out the old and poor it straight in. http://www.opieoils.co.uk/p-903-motul-inugel-optimal-car-antifreeze-coolant-ready-to-use.aspx
  6. This is why I did all my decat in one go a week before mapping as the only bit of driving I will be doing leading up to the mapping is to get the fuel tank very low and give it a full fresh tank of v-power, had my decat up pipe and down pipe sat in my garage for nearly a year while whoring other parts haha, it definitely throws a cel on newage as got one on mine but I haven't suffered any limp mode or anything. Fitting an aftermarket air filter and doing away with the panel filter and box could also leave your car running poorly without a tune. If you do fit it just be wary to stay off boost as much as possible till you do get it mapped. Personally I would wait till you get nearer being able to get it mapped so you don't get tempted to test out that new exhaust note :P
  7. Halfords sell it so you can use that 15% discount on it :) If you want to clean the i/c just be careful round it and stay well away from the fins
  8. most of the newage upto 07 are effected by the airbags I think, the lower arms recall are if you have the steel ones which I think sti all have alloy
  9. 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!
  10. I know Nextbase dashcams are on adrian flux's list as I got one in mine and they said that's one they approve
  11. it definitely needs flushing and new coolant in it, is the oil dip stick frothy or milky at all? A compression test would rule out the head gasket, if it's not head gasket I'd just say rust has mixed with the coolant
  12. green gunk and small bristle/tooth brush, cling film/bag up any electronics and the intercooler and gently hose off

  14. I've done a single catch can with 3 ports and a breather on my blobeye, just blanked off two of the induction hose ports, removed the breather pipe on the intercooler and connected the three breathers to the catch can and routed the catch can breather hose under the car past the passenger seats. I initially looked into the rcm baffled return to sump catch can but 1. It costs a fortune and 2. return to sump is only ideal if your racing or you have a fancy system that prevents the dirty oil vapour in the first place so I will just empty it every so often. it's a large 1 litre tank and baffled so happy days. I bought all the hoses and connectors separately to my own specification for the tank that is also supplied on it's own so if anyone wants any pointers it's a quite straight forward setup as I didn't like the idea of having to plumb two catch cans in with the already limited space as I wanted to relocate my new coolant overflow tank also.
  15. Day 5 Progress from yesterday drilled the mounting points for the 3 port catch can, secured it then connected up the 3 ports and directed the breather underneath the car, still awaiting a new intercooler hose set but got impatient and wanted to test fire up the car so built the majority back up to test and found the fuel injector by the airbox is leaking so need to see if the seals are damaged or whether it just needs reseating correctly then will check again if the car will fire up
