  6. Yesterday
  7. No sensible offers for my Scooby, so managed to convince the missus that she'll be fine to drive it once she's passed her test (I get to keep it). So spent today pricing up getting the work done (clutch/flywheel) and looking at maybe doing some other work (quad pipes and repairing the beginning of some rust bubbles just above the rear badge). Thinking of going Exedy Pink Box Stage 1 clutch and Exedy lightweight flywheel and getting it booked in at Scooby World, would be interested if anyone has any experience (with both the products and the workshop).

  10. Catalunya value.

    Hi guys, I've been an avid reader of the site for a few years and always been impressed with the knowledge and experiences of the members on here. Its that knowledge and opinion that I'm after if that's Ok? I think it may be time to sell my 1998 Impreza Catalunya. I'll give a quick run down of the spec. Its got a 2.5 bottom end with forged pistons balanced crank, version 5 STI heads, TD05 20g turbo, 5 speed 05 gearbox diff and driveshafts and Apexi ecu running about 350bhp, potential of over 400. The car itself is the very last numberd car which is number 203. She's covered 79000 miles and the body and interior are completly imaculate and original. All the books full history and both keys. I've put a lot of time and money into her over the years and will cause a lot of tears when she does go. Not sure of a value and that's what I'd like help with. Thanks for the help.

  17. Hi all. 1999 WRX with idling problem. Only had the car about 2 weeks and i will admit it didn't run right when i got it. It had an issue where if you had a light throttle applied like around town or just cruising along there was no finesse to the accelerator and it was either on or off. If you put your foot down it would run fine but then if you back off it was as though the throttle was missing a position if you understand what i mean. So i put it down to the TPS being worn out. Also it was idling quite hi (around 1500-2000 revs). I then purchased a good second hand throttle body assembly of a running impreza that had been in a rear end crash. I drove the damaged car around the yard before pulling the throttle body assembly off and it drove fine. Fitted it to mine and the throttle light running position is now fixed. But now it doesn't idle at all. When i removed the throttle cable from my car i noticed it was tight and there was no slack so i am assuming someone had tighten the cable up to mask the idle issues. There are no fault codes present. I have replaced the MAF (twice for new ones), Lambda sensor, cleaned and checked the IACV, changed and gapped the spark plugs and done ECU reset after each item has been replaced and gone for a long drive. The throttle body is also clean. It just wont idle and it feels like its running rich as the spark plugs are black and sooty. Any ideas as i cannot afford to pay extortionate garage costs and want to fix this myself. Any help would be much appreciated.
  18. a few pics of my project so far

    She'll be for sale once the engines run in , its been on attowes dyno and got the all clear . It will certainly be a good strong lump when its done and its had a new clutch , full cambelt kit and b.c coilovers fitted about 800 miles ago [emoji41]
  19. Any pointers for the source of above in Central Scotland or Cumbria ? Thanks.

  25. Model Codes for JDM and UK

    Well that didn't quite go to plan... Due to problems with my website host I have had to move to a new URL. The new URL is: https://legacypic.uk/infopages/ Hopefully this will be the last time it has to move.
  26. Headlight levelling issue

    Well, I found control module… …so, with the engine running I unplugged it, no dash warning light. Plugged it back in and the light came on for 5 seconds… The warning light does not come on and then go out after approximately 3 seconds when I start the car as the handbook states. As a mechanical engineer I'm afraid I understand very little about electronics, but my gut tells me it's the control module and luckily (or not) there is one with matching numbers to mine for not too much money on eBay…
