    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!

    I got my remap today :-) I'm so happy with race dynamics aka Duncan really nice bloke and top notch ,service my car runs sweet as a nut , producing roughly 330 ish at 1.4 bar , well happy fast as fook !!!! Pulls to the redline on the vf43 , don't run out of puff what so ever But he has sett it up to come in smoothly to help with my wrx gearbox , I got a few nice comments :-) aswell I got a really good strong engine and he said he could quite happily map cars like myn alday as I have set myn up really well :-) only downside is reckons if I had a sti tmic I could be pushing over 340 bhp , but he said that would be the safest limit on my wrx , chuffed Also good luck with the jdm import twinscroll legacy :-)

    Big thanks to gambit. He put me in touch with perry of revolution wraps who has done my windows today. He's made a great job and am really happy. Having done one of my cars before i know how hard it is and he made the outback look ridiculously easy, always the mark of a true professional. On mine he didn't need to take the windows out but on normal cars he does so that it is a "proper job". Price was good i felt too. Based in lincoln so not that far from me. www.revolutionwraps.co.uk 07553 338885 Am going to get him to do the wifes audi as well :-) While i was there a chap in a range rover which perry had wrapped turned up. I honestly thought it had been painted as the quality was excellent. Cheers Alan

    Hi guys Just want to say a massive thanks to Clive (Savage Bulldogs) for taking the time to change all my oils from front to back [emoji106][emoji41] This guy is an absolute gem and a top decent honest guy and this forum is lucky to have someone as knowledgable as Clive end of. I feel blinking privileged to have had Clive offer to change my oils as I wasn't sure what and wasn't done on the car as I've only got old old service history and just didn't feel right until it was done. Wasn't as straight forward as it seems (was it Clive [emoji849]) and I won't go into detail but to say it was fun especially the ride to go get some engine oil in Clive's chariot now that thing flies like the wind and oh the slight diversion via those flashing blue lights ha ha[emoji100][emoji3] Now I'm about to start making another (Clive to do) list lmao [emoji12][emoji41]

    I used to do a lot of this on other forums and seeing as it`s becoming a wider problem nowadays i`ll post a bit of a heads up here. I`m sure a lot of you know the score but for those who don`t if this helps avoid paying these cockroaches then it`s all well and good. It`s exactly like you or me putting signs up in our road/street and charging people who park outside your house. Private parking firms typically operate in the car parks of supermarkets, NHS hospitals and train stations, and will often let motorists park for free for a certain amount of time, typically around 60 to 120 minutes. If someone overstays, the companies will issue charges ....they are not technically "fines" and cannot be imposed, unlike Penalty Charge Notices issued by local councils these so called charges are disproportionate to the losses the car park incurred by the vehicle having overstayed. If ever you see an un-barriered car park anywhere which is run by a private company you can park completely free....they usually work on the principle of putting signs up saying they have cameras or it`s monitored and that will work for most people, it`s a cheap way of scaring folk into believing they have no alternative to paying up. When you park in a car park the law says you are entering into a contract with the company which provides that parking space, fair enough. If you breach a contract then under contract law that company is only allowed to make a claim for the amount they have actually lost, but because these spaces are usually free to park in........the amount is actually nothing. Even when there is a ticket machine and the motorist stays too long, the "Charge" (it`s not a fine, no one can issue a fine except the police and local councils!) has to be proportionate. Except in Scotland, there is no legislation at all and you can just throw anything you get into the bin! It is normally a condition of the planning permission that parking in retail parks must be free. As such the rateable value of the car park is set at a lower rate than that for a 'pay for' car park/ the local council may be interested in making sure that the correct rates are paid for for the car park as it is revenue generating (as opposed to free) I have my own template letter to send back to them and which more often than not never gets replied to unless it`s to tell you your "charge" has been quashed. Available for free: claretsfan at gmail.com I don`t really want to paste it in a thread ;) Word Doc Info https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8TFZlCx15kTSE5FalJyVEhkNjQ/view?usp=sharing

    I've only ever used 3 reputable mappers First mapper was Duncan ,unfortunately my personal experience wasn't too good as a dyno a couple of months later showed it was seriously over fuelling. Which causes bore wash ,piston wear ,bad economy and drowns the power with fuel. I couldn't fault the fact that he gladly re tweeked my map twice for nothing but he was the only one who had to re tweek . However most of the newage scoobs on my local forum have been mapped by him without issue (so I assumed it was just my luck) Mind you both Simon roe (rip ) and my current mapper Clive attowe tend to get right first time and make sure I'm happy before paying them . Simon had got into mapping subarus after being involved in mapping the euro fighter aircraft. [emoji41] Clive attowe has won more awards for mapping than I care to remember and has been mapping from his own dyno for decades [emoji6] Forest ,Carr and Hepburn all seem to have a very good rep although I have no personal experience with them . Right now that can of worms is open why don't we have a little discussion about oil grades as well [emoji16]

    Hi All, Have actually just posted in the Forester section about my exhaust, but will post here to introduce myself. This is my S-Turbo that I bought just before last Winter as a runaround: I got it for what I think was a bit of a bargain, and it's actually served me very well considering! So far I've only had to replace the clutch, unstick a sticking caliper, replace all discs and pads, and fit 4 new tyres. The backbox is now very much on it's last legs (question here: http://uk.subaruownersclub.com/forums/topic/16701-2001-s-turbo-exhaust-options/#entry107314) and on it's recent service they highlited the rear self levelling suspension springs are starting to look pretty corroded, the front diff is getting quite noisey and there's a couple of bushes that could do with replacing. Long term, if it serves me well this Winter and passes its next MOT, I may start to look at upgrading engine bits as despite it being fairly nippy as is, the temptation for more is there! Cheers, Rich

    Yeah it allows you to set up the same boost in each gear .Which is better as when you get a remap they only set the boost parameters in one gear and you won't hit those targets in other gears due to the different vacuum pressure under different loads [emoji6] running the apexi map sensor lead add on gives the apexi fc ecu better control over the boost but not in every gear and I think I'll need a bit of help to get that bigger turbo spooling in the lower gears ..... So today I mostly be buying a avcr [emoji5]

    Thought i'd just share that I picked up my first turbo scooby yesterday.. She's a 2005 WRX SL with PPP. In my absolute favourite colour and coming from a 2.0R sport, it bloomin' shifts! I have loved imprezas' for as long as I can remember and I can't believe I am now living the dream and driving one! Plans for now are: -Gold Prodrive GT1's with pirelli Pzeros -put the prodrive backbox back on with a straight centre pipe -maybe fiddle with the interior dials/buttons to make them blue As I say i've had it since yesterday and am so so thrilled with it!

    Gave the new girl a quick clean today. Getting a proper valet/detail next week so not gone mad but come up well. Got a proper look at the paint while cleaning too. Paint work on the whole is a lot better than my old one. FAR less stone chips, but has got a few more blemishes and slight scratches. Lacquer is bubbling on the boot lid too, but planning on getting that sprayed anyway as per usually with these it's showing signs of surface rust under the spoiler. The rest I'll get sorted a and when. Overall, very happy with it though. Over last couple of days got a major service and check over sorted by Martin too. All fluids replaced, dodgy top rad coolant pipe replaced and undersealed. Looks to be in good condition :). Although found whoever fitted last spark plugs must have struggled and not been well versed in doing them on Scoobs. All coil packs finger tight, 1 of which actually just pushed into place and not tightened. All plugs were just slightly more than finger tight too, one of which the crusher washer was still in tact. 😁 Luckily no signs of any damage because of this and was running fine. Very happy he found them though. Fitted new 7b's ready for when it's mapped 😀. Said its a sweet sounding and running engine too so all good. Had a Cat 1 alarm fitted too as the !Removed! don't have them on there's. Been a busy couple of days. New brakes have been delivered and tyres are on there way. 😊 One of the original wind deflectors is missing too so picking one of those up tomorrow all going well.

    i buy all my cars private if possible, normally were best cars are found if you know the basics to avoid major issues. I expect seller did know but chances of proving this in court will be next to zero, seller will state he not knowledgeable & will also push point vehicle was open to any inspection so then it your fault for not inspecting properly. 2.5 lumps a notorious for HG issues . The law is an a55 & I feel your pain, don't go trusting dealers too much as they experts at peddling turds & can play the law as well clued up on it. Main trick when buying a car is test & look at everything, take no notice of sellers/owners & don't rush into things.

    Couple of bits done on the scoob this week repainted the rear 2 pots red to match the fronts as I everytime I went out in the scoob I felt like I had odd socks on . Also fitted the v3 header tank I'd prepped a while back, which turned out to be a bit of a nightmare due to the differences in the versions. Mocked up a ally bracket to support the top of the tank to the phase 1 inlet Cleaned up the temporary bracket a bit Fitted with new hoses Just hoping that the weather stays good this week so I can wash ,clay ,polish and wax before the local charity retro car show and jap show in a couple of weeks

    Just a bit of an FYI or any regular A19 drivers. North of Middlesbrough I Spotted a white BMW Estate, can't recall the specific model. But it was definitely an plain clothed traffic officer in an unmarked car. He had a ton of gadgets on his dash and was cruising along about 60-65 heading North, then dropped into Peterlee and headed to the Police Station. I'm assuming it was a usual route for him, however, even though loads of cars passed going well over 70mph, and a lorry that nearly crashed into him, he didn't bother his !Removed! to intervene. I also assume that he was probably coming to the end of his shift and couldn't be bothered. Worth keeping your eye out if you use the road frequently.

    Hello welcome, just come across the thread sorry been busy, If it's a uk car it will have a td03 as stock, Imports have to04's Pop the bonnet and have a look do you have the coil pack off centre and a blow off valve attached to the tmic ? Imports have shorter serial numbers too. 90% of impreza parts fit just need to make sure you get the right version that corresponds with your foz, exhausts are the same until the rear sections , the back box is longer, impreza ones do fit but will need to be altered, I think the standard injectors are grey, 380cc.? As for ecu options you'll have to pull the carpet up and see what serial numbers it has on the front, some will require a completly new unit or a esl daughter board putting in, you may be lucky and be able to have yours re flashed, Anyway get some more pics up and enjoy modding [emoji3] Sent from my SM-T210
