  1. Past hour
  2. Fitted the new top hose, went to start bleeding the system so fired her up and got a misfire CEL. Plugged it in and it was on cylinder 1. After a bit of faffing, swapping coils and plugs etc, still couldn’t find the issue. Did a bit of reading and discovered it could be the front O2 sensor. Unplugged it and got the solid CEL, not the blinking for a misfire. I’ve got a spare sensor in the garage somewhere, I’ll swap it over tomorrow and see where we’re at. For now, I think a beer or 5 is in order 😂
  3. Today
  4. Looking good @JamesJDMwagon always found ash good quality stuff ,too 👍 Decided to give the bug a "quick wash" . Soon evolved into touching up a few stone chips , polishing the headlight lenses and a coat of killer wax 😊
  5. Hi there! When I was searching for mine I did see just one that did have a filler piece for the gap, it attached to the boot lid. I haven't got one either sadly !!
  6. Fitted a new frp and intake hose. Intake hose was from ash doesn't crush like the first attempt. Just in case anyone is replacing the old rubber one it's a 57mm 120 degree bend then cut to size. Top tip use a Razer blade the put a hose clamp on where you want to cut and you'll get a perfectly straight cut. Here's a few pics after a bath.
  7. Definitely worth it but shop around as prices vary widely. Sent from my HTC Desire 530 using Tapatalk
  8. Yesterday
  9. I have taken her out for a blast, I tried keeping up with a BMW M3, it got away on the straights. I've bought some coolant today I'm going to attempt to swap the coolant. My plan is remove the reservoir hoses, and connect one to the hose pipe and one to a pipe into a bucket, then remove the bottom coolant hose after a gentle flush. It took me 3 hours to find an appropriate coolant.
  10. Well that's what I'm hoping for, lol will get the times up after Sunday. Get your car on the track mate and see what times yours does lol its a brilliant buzz😂
  11. Hi I feel the tracking needs doing on 04 impreza so I'm considering having a full 4 wheel alignment is it worth the extra money on an impreza with the limited rear adjustment? Car was put on coilovers by previous owner and I'm guessing never alingned sins.
  12. Alan Jeffries has been around the mapping scene for many years, he has a lot of experience. I believe its his son Martyn who races a mapped and modded classic Impreza at some of the drag and drift events around here (and is one of the fastest). I would trust them. If you were to look further afield, Scoobybits in the Truro area in cornwall has a good rep, and is a subaru specialist.
  13. Welcome along. Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk
  14. Cheers 👍 No I’m not doing just getting the stuff and then got to sort out someone to fit it. The belt That’s on it is over 10 years old lol
  15. Hi to you all, After a lot of faffing around I’ve finally taken the plunge, a nearly new BRZ to be picked up in a week, I can’t wait! Many moons ago I had a Legacy saloon 4cam turbo which I loved and it’s nice to be back in the fold, time spent with the dealer was a good experience, Steve at Simpson’s, Swindon, take a bow, I look forward to picking the car up and enjoying it on an almost daily basis.
  16. If the cars standard or even just mapped and if it's a road car , I'd say save your money and buy a standard full belt kit with water pump from import car parts. If you're doing it yourself make sure you read up on it , buy genuine stuff, and get yourself a cam locking tool .As the left bank cam pulleys are under pressure (cam lobes pushing on valve train) and they'll spin when you remove the belt , possibly damaging valves .
  17. OSubaru Forrester 2002 failed MOT due to rusted back wheel arches suspension springs. Good engine. Genuine 195,000 miles. Contact if interested. Car is in Leciester.
  18. Got to change my timing belt, just wondering what belt to go for. What’s the best option to go for? Kevlar belt or just a standard Gates timing kit? Cheers!
  19. you should be well into the mid 12s surely. Says me the drag racing expert... not lol
  20. I had adjusted tps and fuel pressure and it was running bang on yesterday 😎 Took it out today and the afr is all over the place again 😒 I've got quite a few ECU pin voltage differences between the car and oe v1 schematics but it's a phase 1 car running a phase 1.5 tps . So it might have always had different voltages and was mapped that way in the first place . So after numerous chats with Tim at jtinnovations and Clive attowe the only thing we all think it could be , is that the old loom was giving wrong voltages and was mapped with them . Now the looms not faulty the ECU is receiving different voltages 🤔 It was running fine for 2yrs and Tbh I've only changed the rails and regulator. It's' starting to do my Swede in now ,as I've tried n tested everything I can think of and I'm almost ready to flick a match at it . So I'm going to run it up to attowes Monday week ,so he can check sensors, vac/intake leaks and see if a tweek can resolve it . In the meantime I'll have to show the bug some love and ......
  21. Had the same thing in the bug , alarm going off randomly. Me being me , got all technical testing wires and fuses and couldn't find a fault 🤔 Turned out during the sunny weather I'd been leaving the sun visors down and they were blocking the signal to the movement sensors, I assume as the car cooled down inside it set the alarm off 🙄
  22. Just picked the car up from the safety recall for airbags brake pipe inspection and relay replacement - no problems with the alarm so they are saying interference.... Think I will be interfering with the siren if it continues to go off a 2 in the morning 😡
  23. Thanks mate - just called them and they can’t work on this engine. There’s something about this particular engine - the rom is locked or something. Appreciate the help though!
