New member from fife area!


Recommended Posts

Hello to all subaru oc members my name is nick. I'm from the fife area In Scotland thought I would say hello to everyone. I have bought my first ever subaru n it is a 2005 2.0l impreza gx blobeye she ain't fast but she has very little miles on her and I only bought as I wanted a subaru and love the shape of the blobeye I will post up some pics of her. Plan on eventually either keeping Shell and swapping engine for a faster one or buying a wrx sti not to sure yet but suggestions are welcome and once again HELLO TO ALL

Hello mate welcome to S.O.C :)

unless you're going to buy another STI to just about swap all of it over I wouldn't really do the transplant with engines be better off just buying one that is good to go. :)

Sure would I know there's a car meet in Glenrothes on the 17th not sure if il be able to attend as I have the reserves that night but they regularly have meets and I'm sure there's a few subarus so we could attend one and arrange with they guys if they are up for it?

I might be struggling to attend that one my self man due to work. a weekend meet would be better for me to attend but if u hear of any others let me know and I will see if I can make it along and get some fellow subaru drivers on board [emoji16]

Hi mate

Welcome to the club

Don't bother with an engine swap, yes, you will get more bhp, but what about brakes, suspension, arb's, gearbox?

If you buy a wrx, it will only cost £1k in mod's to get 340bhp. Or if you want more bhp go for the sti. A remap and exhaust will see 340bhp, or swap turbo, injectors and remap and 450bhp is quite easily achieved
