Hi guys just wondering if anyone could help me in the Cumbria vicinity, the mechanics in my neck of the woods are f####g useless, I've had a starter motor fitted, they didn't tighten up the boost pipes,ended up with a terrible boost leak, recently had a  downpipe fitted by a so called WRX specialist, only put two nuts on the turbo flange side leaving one missing,didn't tighten up the mid pipe end sufficient  so it was rattling around,and  leaking terriblydidn't put the donut gasket and spring bolts on , so got in touch with Scooby world who sent me a new donut gasket, took the car to two garages today and was told to come back when I have the right gasket for it, not realising the donut gasket fits inside the pipe and not just on the flange,so I'm left wth a donut gasket,a downpipe attached to the midpipe with rigid bolts and a crappy flat gasket,it rattles, I'm sure it leaks and now sounds like a boost or exhaust leak when I floor the car, so back to my original question, does anyone know of any garages in the west Cumbria area who can fit a donut gasket , Spring bolts and fathom where the boost leaks Coming from (probably exhaust)

Cheers...

Sorry to hear this... sadly don’t know the area very well but I’m sure we have club members around you that can point yourself in the right direction. 

Sounds more like an exhaust leak, a boost leak you’d feel while driving. Did they put a new gasket on the turbo end when they fitted the new down pipe? 

If you have no luck on here with finding anyone, it could be worth having a look on Facebook (if you’re on there) to see if there’s any local clubs that can help you out with recommendations.

I hear the leaking sound when giving it some revs when driving hard, doesn't sound nice, yeah I'll have a look on Facebook,didn't think it would be so hard to do what I thought would be simple jobs, the joys of living at the back of beyond

Mate theres a subaru dealership in carlise they probably won't be the cheapest but at least they will know what they are doing.. Surely 

Yeah, I tried them but gonna be week's before they have time,I didn't think fitting a decat downpipe to a car would be such a head ache , nevermind I'll try again with someone else surely someone will get it right soon

I dont think its incredibly hard mate if you had a spare pair of hands and a tutorial you could probably do it yourself. Saying that i wouldn't be able to do it myself lol Good luck getting it sorted anyway 👍
