  1. I had the same went from a WRX 2.0 to a 2.5 STI and I wasn't that impressed didn't know about the S# ( Sport Sharp ) OMG!!! what a difference. would totally agree run it in properly first.
  2. First of all I would like to thank all that got involved in my purchase really appreciate it and I love the car. Dose anyone know what this plug is under the boot mat ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Nice to be back in the Scooby world even though it was short I missed it
  4. Well I have got it!!!! Tell you what put it in S mode holly **** what a difference wow like it what a smile
  5. Yeah that's what I am going to do. The car has come back clean really happy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Ok that's good new then thanks. I did find the brakes nit as sharp as I expected but my WRX were crap lol The wheels have already been done in matt black look nice. Need to do some work in the interior but other than that seems sweet.
  7. Yeah will get used to it first! I didn't seem that much quicker than my WRX blobeye on the test drive, but I am sure it will be. Have you had any problems with yours ?
  8. How do you find yours? What difference does the dial make in the centre console i.e more responsive?
  9. Hope so! I am so excited for the email tomorrow from Subaru to say its all ok
  10. Full service history and the seats go down lol. Completely standard apart from a stainless backbox. Just waiting on Subaru as it had a private plate so had to get the chassis number [emoji1] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Ok finally got some sense from Subaru the ECU problem is : SU19 - Ring Land Failure is that update associated with that failure Apparently you can call Subaru and get the car updated anytime for free as it's a fault so that's more reassuring [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I spoke to Subaru about this and the ECU 'flash' they offered which changed the parameters of fuelling and if the Prodrive version I had included those changes. The said they were included and from 2009 it was all sorted with the 330s model coming out. Unfortunately that is not true as seen by quite a few failures (mine never had an issue - and it did get driven ). If what Subaru told you was true why is it predominantly No. 4 cylinder? The Pistons themselves are not forged which deals with the ringland failure issue but a bespoke map for your motor is a strong recommendation, get the ECU setup exactly for your engine. Petes mate had one fail through oil starvation so whilst Subaru state the failure due to high revs etc that does not explain the failure itself. Lack of oil for some reason would be a cause and it has been discussed a few times on the forum about how the oil will not return to the sump under continued hard cornering - Track use for instance) - so a baffle plate and uprated oil pump would be in order if that is how you plan to use the motor. I really like the STI hatch I had and will have another, no doubt about it but I will be tweaking it to compensate for the Subaru manufacturing compromises Ok so if I buy a remap is a must ?
