  1. Engine Although STis have uprated engine internals they still need to be cared after in the same manner as the WRX motors. Oil changes should be carried out every 5,000 miles for Classics or 7,000 miles for newage, although more regular changes are not a bad thing, new spark plugs, brake fluid, transmission and diff oil should be changed every couple of years or 24,000 miles and the cambelt should be changed every 45,000 miles. Listen for knocking coming from the engine as this could indicate piston slap or bottom end damage and the turbo should run quite quietly if the cat is still in place

  2. Gave it a dam good spanking while rinsing a 16 plate 7 series [emoji41] he was not a happy bunny after failing for the 3rd time trying to undertake my old shed spec scooby, he was punching his steering wheel and directing air traffic with his hands [emoji23] He probably had the last laugh though .... As it took me a good 10 mins to pick my 150pc socket set up from all over the boot floor [emoji30]

  4. I used to get a strange irritating whining noise coming from the passenger side front when I hit full boost after I had my first remap . .... but I soon realised that the noise disappeared when the wife wasn't in the car πŸ˜‚ If it's not broke .....upgrade it 😊

  7. Hi my name is Martin and i am here to admit my problem. It started 8 or so years ago, drooling over the offbeat warble of imprezas driving past. I vowed to myself-one day i would have one. Several years passed and i kept putting off buying one, saying I'd wait til i earn more etc... this year i thought sod it, I'm having one. So now I've got a 2003 wrx, i spend all my spare time and cash cleaning, fettling, looking or buying new parts, hiding them in the boot til they get fitted. My missus thinks i love Suzy (the car) more than her. I do. It gives me less grief and I'm more likely to g

  8. Well seeing as I booked in a dyno session for the v1sti and wont be using it until the turbos rebuilt and re fitted, I decided to take the v7sti for a dyno health check at last . Glad I did, as first run showed low boost , afr out and low standard 'ish power at 280hp 226flbs πŸ€” I use Clive Attowe as he knows his engine's and diagnostics, not just a good mapper . Although both power and boost were down ,he started by cleaning the maf to try and stable the afr's first (better) Then set about finding out why it wasn't making mapped boost targets and found that a pin hadn't b

  11. Gotta wait for the producer to edit it but once I get a copy I'll post it up . Ebo (the UK grime artist) seemed impressed with my old school scooby . Don't think his mate in the fmic audi was too happy .... I told him mine was standard and he wanted to do a proppa 1/4 run with his 290 hp a3 . "I'll win cos my audi is lighter blud" Should've seen the look on his face when i rinsed him good n proppa 😁

  12. Day8 progress: Absolutely chuffed, bar a few seized bolts on the old turbo and exhaust that I needed a hand getting off it's all my own work and it's now ready to go to Andy Forest for mapping! Over the moon it's all running ok. It's been a busy weeks work. Picture below of it stripped out last week and the end result!

  17. So I finally got it, 2004 Forester Sti and I LOVE IT! Really happy with it and she sure shifts, got a few bits planned for it to tidy it up and looking the part and get the timing done, service and few other bit. Currently has few nice parts fitted including Tein coilovers, stage 1 remap , stage 1 clutch, some samco hoses and some others. Will get it in my workshop this week o have a good look under it and go from there.

  20. Started my 2003 WRX this morning to be greeted with flashing CEL light (which according to the net is a major fault), sluggish no boost and obviously sluggish performance stuck in limp home mode. After spending the day at work stressing I got home in the dark and plugged in my fault code reader that threw up the following (12 faults in total but some of the codes were replicated) P0502 P0503 P0851 P1152 P1153 P1518 After having a heart attack at the list (which didn't change even after deletion) I set to work on Google. I found on NASIOC that this can be caused by the green test connect

  30. 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.

  31. Setting off in an hour to Andy Forrest it's the big day at last! :D Little pray that the car makes the 3.5 hour drive there safe and sound and the mapping goes well. Will report back later and we will let you guys know if we can meet up at all on the way back if your free.

  33. Went away for the weekend with the Mrs only 150 mile round trip but having the "rev limiter" (mrs in the scoob) managed the whole trip on about a 3rd of a tank 😎. My antique sat nav did find a really bumpy short cut which the meister r zeta-r coilovers coped with really well ...... however I almost stuck the scoob in a ditch [emoji15] But that was the Mrs fault as she had a low cut top on which was far too distracting [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

  42. It's sort of sad really... I mean, that car has had under a year's worth of driving in it's entire life. The next person that buys it at that price is just going to store it away and only bring it out every now and then. The likelihood of anyone else ever seeing it in person is very slim- it may as well be sorn. It almost defeats the object of having it... Someone once said to me about doing things to keep the mileage of your car is a bit like not having s*x with your girlfriend to keep her good for the next bloke. I've sort of gone by that ever since.
