  1. Soon as the snow was gone I decided to give it a quick rinse over and take it for a essential "spin dry " Started to dry it off by hand a bit and soon noticed blisters in the paint ,about 30 on the roof alone Some down the drivers side rear 1/4 and on the front bumper It was painted by a reputable company that does bmw main stealer paintwork 3 years ago this april . So thought I'd take it to the body shop that carried out the paintwork , just to see if he had any idea why this happened and how much to put it right . The paint shop is owned by Rick Kerr

  2. Following this with interest! Same colour and miles as one I own (mine is 1999 though so some visual changes) and I’ve just sent mine off to have some refreshing done underneath as well!

  3. number seems correct. I assume it 4.44, you look for tags on rear diff ?

  4. Re: antifreeze, I've just learned that OAT (organic acid technology) is the recommended one for my 2007 Forester.

  5. Coming along well with some nice progress in a relatively short time 😎 I bought some aftermarket uk turbo spec shocks from luke at import car parts but coupled them with elbaich pro springs . He might be able to source oe struts and springs though . If not the elbaich pro springs lower a uk or wrx around 25mm to stock sti height , they're also progressive rate . So are forgiving for pot holes in a straight line but stiffen up under load in the twisties . Failing that a few members have swapped stock suspension for pedders struts and springs .

  6. depends what you looking to push too and what your existing spec is? Also bear in mind you will be spending more on supporting mods than the turbo to make sure its reliable

  9. Is it wet inside the car? If not I would look for blocked drain holes in scuttle tray under wiper mechanism

  10. Water pump best done unless it very low miles (use oem pump only, they about £95), they do tend last 200K with ease but I be changing it unless ultra low mileage where it silly throwing totally serviceable quality parts away . Your problem is if does turn into bigger job the price at dealer get stupid fast and they might not be as flexible at solution paths . At point of engine build you be better off sourcing used engine or donor vehicle for simple swap . (get a lot cheap thanks to subframe corrosion) Hopefully they done some due diligence already such as leak-down test so know what hea

  11. Hi, thanks for your thoughts, think I’ll take my time and see what options to take, my brother is of the same opinion, having owned all sorts from a classic 2000 turbo, P1, hatch etc, don’t touch it. 🤔 we’ll see. Cheers.

  12. It depends on how you like to drive. The Auto box makes it quite a relaxed drive, it has got a semi auto option where you can select gears manually. 0-60 is about teh same with both cars, manual slightly faster but that is all down to the gear ratios. I still tend to favour a manual and even though you can get a semi auto 2.0sti from Japan that does not appeal but it comes down to personal preference. Auto is certainly easier in the city

  13. Is a shame that as EZ is the unstated crown jewel of subaru engines . If the car good example it worth doing as you won't buy better even with 10K in your pocket . I would say you could get better price on work than that, my guideline estimate without seeing it be around 2200+vat which include all parts/fluids and head machine shop costs . LPG can be harsh on valves so they need good inspection and heads need proper checks for straightness and cracks . They not hard to do but quality parts and good working practise are key and preferably mechanics with fair bit of subaru experience as

  14. Kits for the sumitomo calipers are quite pricey, hard chrome piston kits under half cost of stainless and stainless kits good 35% more expensive than lot of other caliper stainless piston kits unfortunately . Price for doing it yourself will mount up if need refinish/paint caliper by times include cleaning/prep and refinishing products . If finish still good then general diy strip and rebuild with decent kit is viable and may save money, as soon as needs total finishing you generally always better off using professional services unless want the project and even more so when got recommended

  15. Wow that sounds like a really sound guy. It’s great to see it being done right too... even if the prep is a little scary

  17. I think you will struggle - my lad had same issue, it wasn't the cost or affording the car he wanted (Hawk wagon) it was that the companies would not insure him

  18. Things progressing along. Sub frames are off being blasted and painted gloss black. Head is skimmed, new valve guides and been reseated. Lot of carbon build up so needed to be acid bathed and soda blasted A few more pics. New engine. And some lower trailing arms that were a bit beyond their best
