Cheers savage 👍 i'll be happy with 300hp if i'm honest any more will be a bonus, next on the list are the phase2 to phase1 adapters so i can fit them to my rails was on lateral performance site and they do them for 49squid delivered so will be going for that then i'll be buying new up-pipe and header gaskets as theres a slight leak where the pipe joins to the turbo, then drop the fuel tank to make sure theres a walbro pump in there as the previous owner said there was, just for peace of mind and also full service kit from import car parts all fluids changed including coolant system, diff and gearbox busy and happy days are a coming 😆😆

Yeah I normally stock pile a few scooby scraps over winter to kick start the spring modding season too [emoji5]

You get into the fuel pump assembly via a oval hatch in the boot . Once the boot hatch is off, you can get to the top of the tank .

Then Remove the fuel gauge sender and pump cradle to withdraw the pump from the tank [emoji6] .

If your's is a v1 or v2 (4 coil packs on top of the spark plugs ) I'd recommend looking at a newage coil pack conversion to help with higher boost ignition strength.

Sound thanks for the advice savage and stants, i take it icp will do the fuel sender/pump lid gasket? As could get it at the same time as the service kit also i was looking to getting an original air box and putting a panel filter in because i want to take the cone filter off to put it back to how it should be are all classic boxes the same mines is a v1 wrx, i was looking into getting newage coil packs seen some on eBay that already have the pigtail conversions on for £110 does that sound like a reasonable price? :smile:

Nope ipc can't get them for some reason, I had to order mine from the states was quicker and cheaper than subaru UK

Think I paid about 13 quid Inc shipping and took ten days,

Subaru UK wanted 28quid and 4-6weeks !

Is yours the oval shaped hatch ? If so I'll dig out the part number

I paid £80 for the pigtails and newage coilpacks, then had to cut my classic pigtail plugs off and solder them onto the newage pigtail wires myself .

You do need by pass the classic igniter by soldering some wires together , so bear that in mind if you're not too handy with a soldering iron or expect them to be just "plug n play"

I didn't have a issue with either of my tank gaskets but you'd probably have to not drive it untill you got a replacement (if your's was fubar) .

If you give it a google it would probably come up with a how 2 for removing the fuel pump .

But as long as you disconnect the Battery earth and release the fuel pressure carefully you'll be fine.

Couple of pics n pointers .

Start with a cold engine and a disconnected batery earth , then from under the bonnet release the fuel pressure at the fuel filter.

The sun glasses were to stop fuel squirting in my eyes and the rags to clean around the tank hatch before opening the hatch to stop any debris dropping in the tank .

Here's a pic of the fuel pump and gauge sender assembly removed .

Cheers stants for the offer of the part number i'm not sure what shape the hatch is yet as i havn't had a look but will try over the weekend if the kids stay out the way long enough haha. Savage thanks for the pics your a legend mate, i have googled the conversion and theres some guy who has a step by step guide so will probs follow that as i can do simple wiring although i'm no sparky but i wire in lights and repair broken wires at work most days, i'll solder them and put some heatshrink over them to seal them. I'll half inch some rags from work and some brake cleaner and give it a good clean before removal, is there alot of pressure in the system? I think the best time to do it will be when i'm changing the filters and have got the fuel filter off, again cant thank you enough guys i'll be due you a drink if we see each other at a show next year if i can make it down to one :notworthy:

No problem fella [emoji106]

link I followed is on this page of my build thread with a few pics . The only thing I did different was use 1 earth for each side rather than 1 earth per coilpack , so I could move the earth's so they attached to the inlet higher up away from road grime/moisture.

When you replace the pump hatch do not over tighten the bolts, had a member here snapped one off 😂

Think the recommended torque is about 15nm as long as you do them up like you'd do a cylinder head should be fine

Just a quick update on this been really busy with work so this has been the first chance to get on with the scoob, i've just ordered a load of stuff from icp, service kit, up-pipe gaskets and studs and all other required gaskets to do the job, some heatwrap from opies and a walbro 255 from scoobyworld since the previous owner was talking bulls**t when he said it already had one, just have to get on the phone to lateral performance on monday to order phase adapters since i don't seem to be able to order them online for some reason, i'm going to be a busy boy in the next couple of weeks :smile:
