  1. Whoops! Mis-read! I would still recommend doing them, there is no downside!
  2. From what I've seen they are both susceptible... I think the WRX head gasket going is more common thatn ringland failure... @aucky had a WRX hatch and his HG went... can't remember how many miles it had on it, don't think it was loads?
  3. For the cost of a set of braided lines... you may as well do it if you're swapping calipers over.
  4. The needle was still going down so I still had fuel... that was my logic :D
  5. Looking good :D
  6. Seen some fail at less than 40k... seen some go at close to 100k... some don't go at all, it's just your luck. But there are more cases of ringland or head gasket issues with the 2.5 compared to the 2.0 Few people on here have experienced this... maybe be an idea to set some money aside if you do go down that route... ye know... just in case! Welcome to the club! :D
  7. No but you need to remove the coil packs... if the plugs haven't been done in a while, you may as well change them as they are accessible at this point. I did it when i changed my gasket last year
  8. I put around 11 gallons into the tank... so around 34mpg. Which means that I had around 2 gallons left in the tank! Think it's a 13 gallon tank...
  9. New personal best!
  10. Hi

    The wheels are, had them refurbished in gold... bought the nuts to go along with them, those nuts only lasted a year
  11. Hi

  12. Hi

    I had those nuts... be careful, i changed them because they were becoming quite rusty... the last nut was so rusted I had to hammer the key in to be able to remove it.
  13. Welcome to the club! What mods does it have to be running that amount of power?
  14. Welcome to the club!
  15. Unfortunately not since you have to remove the airbox and battery for access... so around an hour
