Hi guys,

New owner here, 55reg Forester 2.5, just wondering if anyone knows an independent in the Plymouth area? I've got a few issues that need sorting, I've googled and come across Alan Jeffries at engine tuner(?), at the moment I'm not looking to do any mods (money is a bit tight now!) So need to just repair a few bits at this stage.

Thanks

Ian

Hey guys, took it into engine tuner in Plymouth area.

Guy said it's the secondary air pump, cost to replace the actual part with genuine Subaru is like £500+, but they can remove and delete from ecu for 120+vat.

Either way I won't be paying for it, but what would you guys do? Obviously I have to weigh up time plus 400miles drive + fuel + the hope the dealer does a good job and doesn't just bodge a fix vs a seemingly reputable shop that can stop it from ever happening again.. 

Any advice would be great.

Thanks buddy, I'm going to contact the 'dealer' today and see what he proposes based on the above options... if he puts up resistance about me getting it blanked, I might just wait until the warranty is up, then get it blanked myself. £144 in one hit if it comes out of my pocket is probably better than £100 odd in fuel only to have it replaced and no doubt fail further down the line costing me £144 at a later date anyway....

Alan Jeffries has been around the mapping scene for many years, he has a lot of experience.
I believe its his son Martyn who races a mapped and modded classic Impreza at some of the drag and drift events around here (and is one of the fastest).
I would trust them.
If you were to look further afield, Scoobybits in the Truro area in cornwall has a good rep, and is a subaru specialist.
