  1. If it's the oem one that's coming out get a hacksaw blade and cut it into bits, much easier, and the replacement silicone one should go in with some manipulation without having to take the inlet off Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Can't fault my cobra one, perfect fit, I had the same system as savage but had a sports cat in the down pipe, was nice and burbley but not too annoying at high speeds Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Did piggy not have underlying air pump or sensor issues though ? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Don't waste your money save up and buy a turbo model, You'd need everything from cooling/charge cooling to full exhaust system, boost control ngine harness ecu injectors etc etc I believe the gearbox is different too Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Did they drive it at 70 ? To see for them selves or was it just on ramps that it was checked ? My guess is of they haven't it's a diff/ or bearing issue when my wheel bearing failed there was no signs of play just got louder and louder until it started to cook itself, have a drive around and then touch each wheel centre see if ones excessively hotter Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. I needed it 3 months ago and the old man said I could have it and pay him once I'd stripped mine, I need something bigger though ! Focus is tiny and slow 🤣 although is only costing me 50 a month on fuel instead of 30 a Week, I'll do some man maths 🤣 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. I'd have had this off you when mine blew up but I got offered a very cheap focus from a family member which I couldn't say no to, good luck with the sale 🖒 Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. Just out of interest what fuel do you use in it ? Your man's talking nonsense they can be mapped, you will need to speak to a reputable mapper who know his onions, Looking 10-15bhp on a 11 year old car isn't that bad, however if you got it mapped you'd see gains of up to 260-270bhp alot more torque and better fuel economy, it comes at a price anywhere between 350-600 depending on what software is used, open source is cheaper but you don't get as much end user support, others like ecutek will charge you for a licence. You'd need to stick in an uprated fuel pump for peace of mind to stop it leaning off under increased boost but that's about it, Over time it will pay for it's self just depends on how long your planning on having the car. As for the intercooler most of us just bend the fins back, easier if removed from the car to save you breaking your back. You could look at ebay for a used sti intercooler but it may require some additional parts like the chimney from the bonnet scoop. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. You'd have to get a licence 1st before they'd even offer you cover, assuming you've not been banned/convicted of any motoring offences you'll have some silly quotes come back that's if they are willing to insure you, my previous insurer wouldn't let me put anyone down as a named driver until they'd held a licence for 3 years or more. But assuming you have got your licence and have 3-10k (I'm not joking here some members have been quoted as much as 8k) Then you could take out a years policy with limited mileage to 1000 miles and tell them it's kept in storage (again if it's not near your house and not a recognized storage facility) may throw up issues and tbey'd want ro know of the facility was ploice Larm monitored etc, you could do it Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. No for the turbo, as you'll have to change everything, headers different, you'd need an up pipe/downpipe/exhaust system Boost control, cooling/intercooler engine loom different ecu compression is different too so the engine would have to come apart, for a start. Supercharging may be slightly cheaper but I reckon your still looking at alot of money Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. What spring/ strut combo did you get ? If you were replacing dead sls units you'd have to get shocks with a stiffer rate to compensate for the difference, again if you bought wrx wagon springs they are too soft as the fox is around 50kg heavier at the back than the wrx Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. I'd say firm was an understatement Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Pedders may do one, failing that may be worth looking at outback.org our us friends like to do alot of this stuff should be able to find info on sourcing kits, Anderson design and fabrication do stuff for a start Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. You in Sheffield ? Speak to Martin at Sheffield subaru services down on century street should be able to help sourcing one Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. Yes Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
