    2nd Impreza

    Perfect thanks for the reply mate. Be mostly second hand parts mainly need a oem recirculation valve the now to replace the bov thats on the car from last owner. Will put an ad up at some point. Cheers Ross
  3. Hi Wulbert, I just picked up a 2.0 XS auto 2008, FSH, full MOT,106000 miles for just under £4000... it needs a couple of things doing but I'm loving the car. Maybe you could find one a bit cheaper than £7800 ?
  4. Any members got any recommendations for customised seat covers for an 03 WRX. Looking perhaps for the Subaru WRX logo embroidered into them. Thanks in anticipation.

    CVT Transmission Oil

    i'd say if you're towing with cvt then a change of fluid is deffo a good idea. i notice the towing weight allowance has dropped on the cvt versus torque converter. as for the fluid i would try an indy autobox specialist first as yours won't be the only cvt they're likely to be doing,,might work out cheaper than a subaru dealer. either way changing the fluid will be a lot cheaper than a new box...😉

    Strip Down started

    Impressed with your dedication. That sounds like a hell of a lot of work. Will the manual box mate with the "auto" crankcase housing ? That surprises me, I thought there would be too many different parts to make it feasible. Best of luck.

    2007 STI Limited

    So cars done and i picked it up 😄 Managed 330bhp 360ftlb. Pull really strong all the way throught he rev range 😄 Forgot to pick up the graph so shall get that next time im up lol Turbo is maxed and injectors are at 95% so next step in a few motnhs is prob gonna be swap those out and remap to see what it gets too
  11. Are the journals definitely worn and out of tolerance? As it's fairly common to visually see a ring around the cam journals, from the oil staining and sometimes even a slight build up that can be "flattened off" .

    Legacy Parts

    Afternoon all, I picked up a Legacy R estate a couple of weeks ago, got a couple of bits needing done drop links and a wheel bearing nothing major. However what im looking for is the best place to find aftermarket parts nothing major she is going to be the family work horse but will be well looked after. Aim is induction kit, exhaust, window tint and a nice set of wheels. I landed lucky and obtained an induction kit locally brand new so will get that fitted over the weekend some time. Likely wont look to lower the motor so I can still use as intended with the dogs and wee man. Any advise would be appreciated.
  13. Hi Guys and girls I'm new to this forum and thrilled to be here. I could use some help and I know your the people to ask! I'm trying to get hold of an uprated intercooler Y pipe, over the last few days I've been reconditioning my intercooler. Along with this I noticed that the plastic factory pipe is quite restrictive when compared with the factory STI Y Pipe. My car is a 1997 V3 Uk impreza turbo wagon. Some mods nothing too crazy. Will update engine bay pic after slotting my freshly painted and straightened intercooler back in. Any help re finding a STI Y pipe would be much appreciated Thanks

    Fourth Scooby

    Good Afternoon All I've had previously 2 x GB270 wagons (loved 'em 😅) and a Forester XT that was mapped & tweeked back in 2004 Currently an owner of an 06 Forester STI that's in the process of having its EJ255 pulled to bits for a rebuild/new turbo/remap (not thru choice 😶) 100k on the car when the turbo died, thought it would be straightforward hahaha! Needing some advice regarding scored cam journals on the EJ255 heads, so i'll post in the relevant section. Cheers

    Hello world! Future owner here!

    Wotcha and welcome - looking good!!
  18. Greetings from Glasgow. I'm looking to get back into a Forester (maybe as early as tomorrow!) I used to have a 2006 2.0l petrol and liked it but had to let it go because it could only tow 1.5t. Looking at a 2009 onwards model as I have recently discovered that they can two 2 tonnes. I'm wanting a 2.0l manual, petrol as it seems cheapest to run. Hoping to get good advice here, on-line "Road Tests" are useless "...the Subaru is a very much niche car..." Here's a pic of the old one which I liked a lot:

    Winter tyres to clear

    Hi Keith, sorry for delay in getting back to you, the cost of travelling down to you is probably going to be a deal breaker, to be honest I could probably offer £40 but this is because of fuel costs, hope you understand, regards

    P0409 with new EGR valve

    Evening Thank you MrB, much appreciated No I don't have any sophisticated equipment i'm afraid, just DIY hand tools. I've not been able to bench test anything. Everything you say sounds absolutely right - basically everything is working, just not to the exact level as instructed to open/close by. Notably that on engine shut down the valve doesn't shut completely enough (as measured) , according to the position sensor. The light never comes on when running, it's only set when RPM and MPH both = zero. I cant say that we are experiencing any problems. a bit clattery when cold, and the idle can adjust itself up/down slightly and 'wobble', but only occasionally, and it never feels like stalling - just adjusting itself. In fact everything runs fine, other than the flipping warning light. I should probably invest in an OEM valve. Thanks again

    Thoughts.advice please

    Yeah im sure there is plenty over here .Just a language barrier for me and the wife wouldnt necessarily know the translation for a technical part. It can be very frustrating at times. My own fault for not learning the language better. I prefer to spend me money in UK anyway. I wouldnt mind those part numbers if i get one that still has original suspension. Plus the other bits. I see an SG on Autotrader 2006 2,0 xe manual 70k miles ! Needs a new clutch. Only £2200. Up in Holfirth though so unlikely to travel up just to view and potential of finding out he needs more than just a clutch.( Ill be staying with family in Kent)
  22. Just thought I'd throw up a few of the daily driver pride and joy for any Foz fans out there ...

    Hi Folks, Is anyone running one of these on an SF EJ20? I'm about to manual swap my 2001 Jap S/tb STI and will be wanting to map it as well. No one in Ireland uses Ecutek and i'm too tight to fork out for a syvecs (which would be overkill for what i want anyway!) Cheers

    Hi Folks

    Hi All, Greetings from the Emerald Isle ! I've had my JDM Forester St/b STI II for about 2 years now - really loving it!!. Came from the factory as an Auto but I'm about to embark on a 5sp swap and then map it. Currently have a 3" H&S Decat full exhaust, vf28 turbo, walbro fuel pump and a fair few handling modifications so i'm looking forward to getting it more driver focused. I'm sure i'll have a load of questions along the way so thought i'd say hi.
  25. Hi all, my first post, please excuse me from not posting in introductions section firstly. Our battery went flat in Airport car park before Christmas and the system is now asking for a password. We’ve tried the usual obvious ones and today the car is in the what was Subaru dealer we bought the car from, only they are scratching their heads and can’t solve it. It’s a maroon XV and the previous owner was from Broughton, Chester but isn’t listed in telephone directory. The garage think he may have put his own code in, or even one of the other previous owners (it’s had 3). Really fed up now with no stereo and coming close to changing my blooming car! Any suggestions? Thanks in advance peeps x

    6 speed swap hatch

    Should be ok on the 5 speed at that, the hawk 5 speed onwards is alot stronger. I ran 400/420 on a hawk 5 speed for 10k miles no issues.
