  1. Hi everyone, I’m brand new 😊

    Glad you’ve found the power. It took me a minute to get used to it to. Was always changing gear at about 3500rpm before I got the scooby. But I must say scooby a more B road rocket as opposed to motorway munchers. In other words they will go fast in a straight line, but I feel they start to lose it after 90-100mph. B road in 2nd and 3rd is great fun. Just don’t look at the fuel gauge lol. Remember smiles per gallon not miles per gallon lol
  2. Hi everyone, I’m brand new 😊

    Hi great looking car. I can help you with the fan sounds, not something I’ve come across before. I own a wrx and I’ve remapped mine with just a prodrive back box and cosworth air filter and prodrive intercooler hoses and im to 285bhp. It’s made a massive difference. Yes the turbo lag is a pain, but when you get used to it...... on the wrx the turbo kicks in at around 3500rpm and I believe the sti is close 4000rpm. The secret, keep it above 3500rpm and if you not change down. These car can take quite a bit of abuse and going to 6k isn’t a problem :-).
  3. 2005 impreza blank switch

    Hi all just wondered if anyone had one lying around. It’s one of the two that’s next to the front of handbrake lever, between cup holders and gear lever. Can’t seem to find one on the bay, unless I’m search the wrong thing lol Thanks
  4. Didn't get my 15%

    Good price :-)
  5. Im back

    Hey rick nice to meet you. I’ve seen a few classics being broken for part advertised on a few of the scooby parts for sale pages on Facebook. Often see them. Might be worth a look. Or you could try Matt at mb developments whose also on Facebook. He’s always got parts for sale. (Admins - hope that’s ok to to advertise places)
  6. Good to know. So what your thoughts Savage? Is your resonated and how loud is it?
  7. Thanks sandals, yes I want to stick to a budget, but not too cheap. I’m not looking at a £7-800 system, but something sensible. Secondhand isn’t really what I’m after, would like new if poss. Nothing too loud, but that nice distinct burble. Had a quick look on the cobra website and a non resonated cat back was under £400, but would that be a good choice/ not too loud/ give the nice burble?
  8. Hi all looking at changing my exhaust, well cat back at least. And was looking for some recommendations please. My car is a 2005 blobeye wrx. It currently has a prodrive backbox and the rest is standard as far as I can tell. The centre section (resonated) is starting to show signs of wear and the back box is starting to get a bit of a ‘rattle’, hence why I’m looking at changing it. My car has been remapped to 285bhp and didn’t want to go down the route of another remap, so something similar to the prodrive. I do like the sound, but I can’t help but think something else would unlock the burble a bit more. Thanks in advance Edit also don’t want to spend mega bucks either :-)
  9. Yeah my impreza is the same, but mine happens after about 10 seconds. If you turn ignition on then press key fob button, then start car.
  10. Anyone Recognise This Car?

    Good luck in your search, plenty out there, I’m sure you’ll find the right one soon enough. I would imagine there are loads within a reasonable distance from you.
  11. Anyone Recognise This Car?

    Well sounds like you more clued up than me. Personally I think I’d be looking at a more standard one that’s clean with good service history. Then get it the way you want it. More piece of mind for future mods. Good luck. Keep us up to date. Also what area are you from?
  12. Anyone Recognise This Car?

    Sorry but it’s just entered my head. If it’s 280hp, then it’s been remapped, 225ish standard. Find out who done it and ask for proof. A bad map can cause problems too.
  13. Anyone Recognise This Car?

    No worries bud. I’m no expert, but I’ve picked things up fast. Also if what Stuart has put above about the mot advisory is true, be very careful. Scoobys do tend to rust at the back end. If it’s been camouflaged, might cost more than the car to get it repaired. One bit of advice, you need to forget what it looks like from the outside. The pic you posted makes it look great and many would buy it on that alone. I’ve done that on cars and then had many problems. Also you should check how often it’s had oil changes. Some people will change it every 2-3k others longer, but (depending how it’s be driven) every 4-5k would be fine. I do mine around that, but I don’t race it every time I get in it lol. Just use you head and not your heart, after all it’s a scooby, so it’s probably been raced around a bit. That’s what they are for lol
  14. Anyone Recognise This Car?

    280hp should be fine on the gearbox, I’m running 285hp and I know of other that are higher. But having said that, my gearbox needed a new tail shaft bearing and the car was only at 250hp when I got it. So just keep you ear on it for any whines. And the two things that stand out there are coilovers, nothing against them but it might indicate racing? And what does it mean by straight through exhaust. How many cars are left? Could be an issue at the next mot unless you have a ‘friendly’ mot tester.
