    Had a lot of fun! Sump baffle solved my boost issues. Would recommend that mod if anyone has track day boost issues. My brakes were rather shocking. Once hot massive amounts of steering wobble [emoji848] Had a bit of a fueling issue late on and a top/head knock which was suspect injector but later the knock cleared. Didn't get to retest the hesitation. It was in 4th/5th heavy load, every so often it would just cough slightly. Gonna whip the injectors out and have them flow tested/cleaned. Even ploughed a field for the boys at brands.

    Problem solved, Today I had my Impreza in to my local Subaru Dealer for the air bag recall and asked them to run a diagnostic test on the car while it was there. I explained all the things my other mechanics had done to try to fix the running issue. What they found was the ECU memory and something called the OBD memory hadn't been cleared after replacing the faulty sensors.They cleared the system and re-learned the idle. For the first time in a year my subie is running like it should. Happy days...

    By the looks of the 1st pic in my last post , for almost 18months I've been searching for a fuel safe suitable tighter 90° bend[emoji52] Hopefully this "racinglines" banjo bolt that fits directly into the end of the cdf rails will be the solution , just need better weather to give it a try . Looks like a well made bit of kit too [emoji41]

    I would check timing followed by sensors/wriing as pretty sure it cutting ignition once reads sensor correlation off .

    Well all I can say is wow. We've had some serious snow and the XV was great. Don't know if it's the car or the tyres or a combination of both. I live a.mile up a farm track and was able to drive out with drifts over a foot deep. We then got snowed in with 4 foot drifts. The farmer was able to clear most of the track with a tractor but there was one bit he.coukdnt get to. So we just drove across the field and the XV coped perfectly. I just turned off the traction control and it just.goes no problem at all. I'm really impressed. It's got really good ground clearance as well. Norrie.

    Bye bye horrible arch gap ... Sits really nice now , although struggling to get set up right recharging bump stiffness getting a lil wheel hop at the front I think need to have a play properly , would be interested to know what how hard soft other people are running their coils , I’m currently running about 4 clicks softer on the rear atm the rear is fine just the front that need sorting now. .. there will be some more progress very soon 😬 should be a special delivery arriving from japan very soon 😛

    Pretty sure if it's from a Hawk it should fit. Unsure if the hatch onwards are the same downpipe, probably are but can't 100% confirm

    Good shout on both oil separator plate and cam cover gaskets/ half moons [emoji106] From the factory the sump is just sealed with liquid threebond (no gasket) but I'd suggest to upgrade to a group n cork sump gasket . If you do change the rear crank seal ffs dont push it in too far (just flush with chamfer). if you do push it in too far it will block the return to sump channel and leak like fook when it get up to temp...... trust me I've been there lol Check the clutch and flywheel spigot bearing for wear too [emoji6]

    There’s an oil separator plate to the right of the rear crank shaft. The early ones were plastic with Philips screws. The upgrades are metal with hex bolts. The early ones can start leaking over time. You fix one oil leak and another starts...

    Hi All, Just wanted to post some up to date figures for anyone looking to buy a scoob in the near future. These figures were taken during a trip from the midlands to Anglesey for a track day, so give a wide range of driving Car: 2010 WRX-S, standard apart from a cobra cat back exhaust and cosworth filter - Motorways/ A roads: 30mpg (avg) - Track: 12mpg (avg) - Town driving/ B roads: 23mpg (avg) This may help anyone wondering if subarus are semi good for long drives - 30mpg isn't bad! Thanks Matt

    Tbh i couldn't tell you what those codes are for without looking them up but any leak between the maf and cylinder head inlet ports , can flag up a maf , map or misfire code . Due to the maf reading air coming in and the air pressure in the inlet manifold (read by the map sensor) not adding up . Give the intake pipework, tmic y pipe and vac lines a visual check for splits or cracks

    Don’t get me wrong, not in any way saying that the new XV is a bad car, it isn’t, it’s a very good car. But at £27k for the 2.0l that means there’s better cars out there for towing purposes, the 1.6 wouldn’t do it. i think if it was just a daily driver with off-road capability it’d be fine, but for towing you need the low end torque of a diesel. the dealer was trying to sell me one ad whilst I like the look of the new XV I do prefer the styling of the current model I have. with the annual mileage that I do (circ 8k pa) and the cost of changing to a new car, it makes more sense for me to run my current car into the ground, which I think is what up will do to be fair. They’ve stepped the XV up a level basically to compete with the more luxury market. It has a lot more toys on it compared to the current XV, hence the price. I’m surprised there’s no hybrid option though, most manufacturers have a hybrid option theses days. hope you like your new car, please pop a review up when you have had it for a bit.

    Started to pull the engine to bits today, began with removing the headers Then moved on to removing the crank pulley and taking off the cambelt cover, lined up the oe timing marks then removed the cambelt and when i did the cams moved round but not to worry as have to take off cam sprockets and remove cam shafts to gain access to the head bolts Now i took the rocker covers and the rear sections of the cambelt covers, then the half moons that hold the cams in however watch for the location of each half moon they are stamped to indicate which cylinder they relate to with an arrow pointing to the front of the engine and this is as far as i got today just the inlet manifold to remove now before taking the heads off, this is the first time i've worked on one of these engines so its a bit of a learning curve as i go along but its also been a pleasure so far 😉😉👍👍

    Well wheelnuts were shockingly bad quality but a full refund (inc return postage) hasn't left me outta pocket , just still got ginger nuts [emoji849] On a positive note i think i have finally found the fitting i need to fit the parallel fuel lines, billet rails and fpr i bought ages ago 🤞 Due to "clocking" the coldside of the sr40 turbo i didn't have the clearance to use the normal 90° an6 fittings to connect the fuel lines to the billet rails [emoji848]

    It would depend on how you want the car to feel - If it was me I would go for a mild upgrade but no the full solid track orientated one - Think they are the black super pro ones not the purple so you get slightly stiffer but not rattle your fillings out

    400 all in seems more reasonable, Ask if the flywheel is getting a skim & if that includes a spigot bearing, may be worth getting a rear main oil seal on standby too, of its looking tired or weaping would be better to change it rather than have to do the entire job again Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
