Nice one mate. Nice wee classic youve got there. You got many mods on it? What scoob has your mate got?

Cheers mate 👍, i bought it as a kind of wee project, it came with an apexi air filter, a old school baileys dump valve and a 3'' exhaust from the turbo back but the previous owner never had it mapped so was overboosting when giving it the beans 🤨,  so had the engine out it last winter and got the heads skimmed and valves re-cut and re-seated and new gaskets, fitted yellow 440 injectors, uprated map sensor to a newer v5 sti one, got it mapped on esl by a chap called Chris at dyna tune from east kilbride, think its making around 300 ponies and thats @1.2 bar the only thing holding me back is the tmic and the next option is front mount but i'm not going down that road as want to keep the engine bay as original as i can,  my mate has a blob sti type uk in crystal grey which has had the works at Rodger clark motorsport, have you any plans for your motor 😎👍

Nice one mate all the proper mods there. Mines is unbelievable similar to yours lol. Has cobra sports cat down pipe custom cat back stainless exhaust and also a Bailey bov 😂. I am taking the Bailey off asap and reverting back to oem recirc valve which ive got ready to fit but kids = no time. Much like you mine hasn't been mapped yet so staying off boost as much as possible til ive got it done. Other than that it has full sti body kit with sti wheels so probably go brembos at some point and a couple of suspension tweeks here and there. Good idea with tmic im doing the same ill be happy with 275 hp ish.

Aye the kids do take up alot of time bud ma two are always getting in the way or wanting money for this and that, i actually took my baileys dump valve off and replaced it with a forge adjustable one. When you get round to mapping i would deffo give andy forrest a shout and get it done there as he a bit of a god in the scoob world, i was going to get himto do mine but he had just stopped mapping the classics 😎👍

Aye im considered him, the mechanic i used said he can get it done with a guy he knows. He knows subarus inside out so ill ask his advice nearer the time. Yeah i know what you mean but my wee boy does love the scoob, take him runs to Ardrossan harbour quiet often. Ive just went with the standard recirc as advised by my mechanic. The forge one good?

My wee lad the same he's absolutely gutted when i put it away for the winter all i get is when is the scooby coming back out to play haha 😂, the forge one is pretty good with it being adjustable you can have it set for recirculate or if you feeling like a yobbo you can v.t.a 😎👍
