  1. So, I own a 1999 2ltr sf turbo, beautiful car. Black with a touch of metalflake in it. WRX discs and calipers, whiteline bushes,Manual. Reconditioned rear subframe. Always looked after etc etc. 145k miles. cam belt changed, oil etc changed. Cleaned every weekend. I love it. No probs with it. My problem is that I use it as a daily drive to and from building sites with shovels etc in the back and in the 5 years I have owned it the inside is getting a bit knackered. I have an opportunity to buy a non turbo sf so I can use this as my daily drive and only use the sfturbo occasionally. As I am sur

  3. 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
  4. HI all, my 1999 Forester SF turbo has just failed it's MOT on a rusty rear subframe and I am really struggling to get hold of a new replacement or a decent second hand one. Does anyone know if any other rear subframes will fit my SF without modifications, or with small mods as want to keep it as original as poss. Or where I can get hold of a new subframe? They seem to be available in the states but only for a 2.5l of the same year? Don't want to buy one and ship it over if it won't fit. Thanks for any help you can provide Wilbs
  5. So, I tried my local motor factors - Whoopie in Farnham - for the front O2 sensor. All they had listed was sensors with 4 wires but offered to get one in and see if it looked 'right'. So today I went to 'look' at the 4 wired sensor and in fact it was 3 wires and looks to be exactly what is currently fitted to my 2000 Forester SF, so deep joy! I haven't fitted it yet , will do so at the weekend, but everything matches what is currently fitted so looking good. For anyone who wants to know or has the same situation it is an NTK/NGK Lambda sensor with numbers on the box being 'OZA743-EE1/01' and
  6. Hi, new to site so please bear with me. I have a 2000 Forester 2.0SFTurbo. I have been trying to get a new O2 sensor, front sensor , mine has 3 wires, all I seem to be able to buy is ones with 4 wires. If they fit will they do the same job? The reason I am looking for one is that it only just passed it's last MOT on emissions and I believe this may be a contributing factor. Also it idles slightly erratically, maybe varying 200rpm once warmed up so also looking for a new MAF sensor, they seem to vary from £30 to £250 - why? and any suggestions on this. Thanks is advance for any help and advice
