  3. LoL. youll av to get your tape measure out I'm afraid, to measure the gap u have so u can then determine the spacer size for the gap u want it to be. Spacers thinner than 15mm thick will require longer aftermarket studs. Spacers that are 15mm thick or over have their own studs built in, come with nuts to put on the oem studs that, if thinner than 25mm will need cutting shorter. & if you do decide to get spacers then make sure that they are hub centric ones.

  4. Thanks again for the welcome and thoughts. This is the car I’ve put a deposit down on and having checked over. Still waiting for the full list of what needs doing but no one has told me it’s a terrible idea so if nothing horrible comes up I’m going to do it. I can’t link to the ad for some reason so forgive the screen grabs. Owned by an elderly chap who now unfortunately has gone into care. 60k miles on the clock, 100% original I believe. My restore thread will be pictures of me paying money over to those with more time and skill than me but I’ll be glad to share what I l

  6. Hi there, Just checking in. Since i was a child the Subaru Impreza was the epitome of a cool car. Colin McRae and all that. But I've never owned one. I've been in the emotional process of parting with my current car (a '99 Golf Mk4 GTI) that I have dragged through its death and resuscitated in to a reliable runner again. But being a South Londoner it's got to go due to the ULEZ coming to the South Circular. Not only that but I want an estate because I seem to be hauling stuff around a lot these days. So as a balance I'm looking to get an Impreza Wagon or a sporty Forrester. I was a

  7. Thanks guys, after a lot of messing about with both the vehicle and the 'phones setting I have now got everything loaded - twice!! Now all I need to do is eliminate the duplicates and see how well the system works in practice. Lockdown means that I cannot drive around, but the little I have done I find the car most impressive. The 'Eyesight' system is incredible.

  10. Not been much of an update for a while now as it's hardley moved for 10 months. Been dropped of at scoobyclinic (again hahaha) for a few bits. Rear brake backing plates are rusting through, unfortuantly this is a bit of a job as it also serves as the back of the hand brake, so it's a pretty major overhaul including bearings, possibly the abs sensors will need replacing as well. Rear bootlid neds painting as it rusting around the badge fixings as they all eventualy do, so thats been sorted and blended into the wings. Last thing is the front cross member/bumpe

  11. After Hermes delivered the first switches I bought to Scotland 🤔 I finally got round to fitting both oe foglight switches that I'm going to use for anti lag and 2 boost targets. Think I'll eventually like the ,newer style switches and find out how to wire them up so the "foglight led on bulb " lights up when switch is armed . For now I'm happy with the oe look and didn't fancy big red covered "missile switches" I'd already ran both di wires from the link expansion board , so it was just a case of fitting a earth to one pin on the back of the switch and the di wire (from the di

  13. Thanks everyone. Driving this offers better feedback and communication than the F80 M3 Comp DCT that I "traded in". Clearly not as fast, but I think I will enjoy it more. Seats could offer more lateral support, but everything in life is a compromise, I suppopse. Overall, I'm happy so far and I'll be a lot happier when I start to do some mods. Front lip spoiler required as well. I have a 2 year warranty that covers most parts I would think, including head gasket and OEM turbo, pistons, etc... It would be best if I didn't need to rely on that, lol...

  15. Hmmmm, ok. Well from what you just wrote, I would do a compression test & leak down test. You would need to get a mobile mechanic in to do this if your not confident in doing that. Get all the details wrote down before he leaves. Before you mentioned the low compression I was thinking it sounds like the coilpack metal (x3 in each) connectors INSIDE the black plastic connector. iv seen this issue a few times now, where coilpacks are diagnosed, but it's the connectors not making a good connection. This COULD have been the original problem. the more they are

  17. It looks like a clean example to start with , mind you you don't know what is lurking under that underseal . For reference it's a version 4 uk turbo , as Subaru years and versions can be a little confusing at the best of times . If you do need any repair panels or sections have a look at "automotive repair panels " on f.b . Ray sells good quality and fitment panels ,at a fraction of main dealer costs . All the best and keep us posted on the progress 👍

  18. thanx Pete B and Mr B, I have trawled the web , looked at ICP etc for the last week and I have bought the only one I could find, which is the one on ebay which you have shown. Collected it yesterday, lots of surface rust and looked **** but spent the day with angry grinder, power file etc etc and it's all solid. Which is great. So hopefully by the end of the week my SF will be MOT'd and back on the road. Appreciate your replies and help and I will let you know how it all goes. Catch you soon

  19. I've not use the CrossClimates on an XV in the snow but I have with a Skoda Yeti. This was in Derbyshire and some of the drifts on a narrow lanes were 12" (30cm) deep. there was plenty of packed snow in places. The tyres performed perfectly, I was very impressed with the feel and confidence that the tyres gave. Just as importantly for me is the performance in wet weather, typically heavy rain on motorways.

  21. If this keypad is inside the little flap covering the fuses it is probably standard Sigma or similar. Do you have remotes and if so do they work to unlock/lock the car? It certainly should not be necessary to key in codes every time.

  22. Just subtle changes mate. It’s decatted,been mapped to around 330,and has an Agency Power exhaust fitted. Nothing too elaborate 😂 I have the Mishimoto cold air intake to put on it,and was just wondering what the thoughts on them were.

  24. Petrol or Diesel? Petrol ignition breaking down or dirty fuel filter the bang will be a backfire not good for the exhaust or cats etc Diesel 100% blocked filter of water in the filter cuts off the fuel flow sounds like a petrol at rev limiter Either way sort it or it will cost much much more

  26. Managed to get an indicated 40 mph (60 limit) at the apex (no crossing of the white lines) on the only fun corner on my commute 😁 (it's a K-right, with a very, very slight camber.) Wasn't trying too hard, just thought I'd see what she could do. Still on the OE Geolanders. Only 3 mph less than the Levorg has managed, too 🤔

  27. to be fair the sigma pretty good alarms, we don't see massive amount of issues (most issues are buggered fobs and people not knowing pin code) and most of the systems like 14 to 21 years old . Plus side is they well understood by most in trade who worth paying and easily bypassed removed or repaired at pretty low cost with used system parts . If you want more help upload a photo of alarm fob front and back and give details on exactly what happening - turn signal flash count, doors unlock but instantly relock ect ...

  28. I don't take part in "street racing " and i don't enjoy being tailgated . But I do like watching people swing into the outside lane on a slip lane to over take my retro jap crap .... Only to be left for dust up to 70mph 😂 Guess he'll be taking that beemer back to the garage and cancelling his finance 😊

  30. Popped out to essentially drop my daughter off at work and had a slip lane pull with a 18 plate m3 . I hit boost in 3rd and put 4 car lengths between us 😂 Needless to say I dumped it in 6th at 70mph and once he'd caught up ,his face was a picture as he passed 😂 Built not financed for ftw 😉 Haven't really used the anti lag n launch yet and will eventually get a vid of it in action . but i did flick switch it on and blip the throttle once I got home , she sounds dirty 😊

  31. It will be a while before I dare spend a significant sum in one go , on the scooby. Definitely pushed the budget out bit this year but its kept us all busy during lockdown lol . You know me Jay , always keen to try something different. So although I know a toucan is probably the easiest option , I'll look into the cheaper tablet/link options first 😊

  33. Ladies and Gentlemen, taking a page out of the NASIOC guide to dealing with a constant stream of noobies, I have decided to put together an exhaust FAQ. This is a living document and I don't claim to know everything, so where we have consensus or documentation, I will make changes appropriately. The Basics: The 2015+ WRX and STi have a mostly redesigned exhaust system to go with the new motor and resultant new turbo placement. There are still FOUR main components, although nomenclature gets confusing sometimes. Here they are in order from turbo to tailpipe with colloquial name and of

  35. So I've found the culprit, it had spat a freeze plug in the RHS head. Been replaced and gasket set arrived for the re assembly. I've just rebuilt the oil pump and have cleaned just about all the oil galleries I can get to. Sump is off with new paint drying. Plan is to refill with oil and spin pump with a cordless drill to prime system and blow through any remaining sludge. Once new seals have arrived from Japan I'll rebuild the cam towers, refit everything removed and drop the engine back in and fingers crossed.

  37. Fitted the cylinder 4 cooling mod, I used the ICP supplied Fuji Racing kit. The kit was no problem to fit other than the usual fight with spring clips that are too meaty for your fingers but are in a location where you fight to get a set of pliers 😆 Plug to be removed Replaced by adapter tube Pipe goes on Splice into matrix heater feed after cutting the pipe a little

  38. Hey man ive had a search for you if you go to the website in the pic you will see they say you either need your flywheel skimmed or replaced at the same time. You would need to obviously factor in labour aswell possibly talking about £800+. Bear in mind there are other options out there this pic is just an example could try import car parts or other scooby parts specialists too

  42. Does sound a bit harsh and if the car was cold when tested, it would be rich especially with a sports cat . Unfortunately you wont get much for it as a mot failure , post the failure sheet up . It might not be too expensive to get the rot completely cut out .

  43. Thats a bit s**t mate but they shouldn't be poking holes in your car with a screwdriver the way it should be tested is with thumb pressure thats why the mot stations have a little rubber headed hammer, you can knock a hole in anything if you try hard enough and as for your sports cat i'm pretty sure he talking bs saying there's nothing in there, just out of interest where is it supposedly excessively corroded about

  44. Tbh I don't know of any regular posters with high hp fozzies on here , myself but someone might spot this and know someone. Either way great numbers , feel free to start a build thread to share what you've achieved and future work. Especially with pics , we like pics .😊 Easiest way I find to downsize pics off a phone to a uploadble size is screen shot them then try to attach them 👍
