  1. It'll most likely be the tps plug. Get an oring pick & remove the white slider thing from inside. Then the little tabs inside can be bent slightly whilst tugging on the wires, they'll pop out. the female connectors will have got wider, so making poor contact with the tps connector male blades. On each female connector there's a little square opening on the side, you can use an angled pick to bend the tab back in so the hole is tighter.👍🏻
  2. 🤔hmmm. i beg to differ. To get my geometry correct I had to order the gc8 sti pink arm set. The trailing arms are the same length.as the brackets are different heights The pink set of arms were about 10mm shorter than the arms that came off my Forester. I then had to purchase the gc8 pink sti arb link & brackets set because the pink arms have no mount for the oem 'c' shaped arb links. 👍🏻
  3. 😄.this is on going to become your slogan. LoL
  4. 👍🏻
  5. Sorry that was a long wait. In all honesty, I did forget. Hope these pics help.
  6. And the anti-roll bar part numbers below. The black series bushings came with my rollbar in the bag. Quite good, they got little ptfe hairs inside, so no grease needed.
  7. The roll Center kit that fits foresters in pic below
  8. The sf5 Forester's suspension is what I would call(in standard form) 'very much boat like'. Swapping to a kit with stiffer springs would be a good start, like pedders suspension, they do a straight swap standard height kit that's quite good. Then a thicker rear arb fitted from a gc8 impreza would be better because the oem is really quite thin. Oem brakes don't stop very well either.
  9. If you want the geometry correct with a forester that's as low or lower than an impreza, then you'll need to swap the trailing arm brackets to gc8, rear roll bar brackets to gc8, rear gc8 sti pink arm kit, gc8 propshaft bearing housing, gc8 gearbox cradle, gc8 front subframe u bolts with subframe spacers removed, gc8 gear lever assembly, gc8 intercooler undertray, gc8 roll centre kit, plus other odds n sods Iv probably forgotten about. I think Iv got the part number for the whiteline roll bar I got I look for u tomorrow 👍🏻
  10. The later impreza gc8 rear subframes fit. You'll just have to make sure to get the forester arms because they are longer than impreza arms because of the suspensions ride height on the forester's being taller. im running everything impreza gc8 on mine because it's so low. I just noticed your on about trailing arms. Impreza trailing arms fit as it's the bracket that's different between the forester & impreza.👍🏻
  11. Hi. How was it disconnected? was the wires de-pinned from the plastic connector? what colour wires have you got coming from the motor to re-connect?
  12. I might have a vf23 from a 22b. For the right price, Obviously! 👍🏻
  13. I agree about the h&s systems. H&S afterburner vortex back box is what I have, sounds good (I think anyway. My neighbours might not think so though!) Not sure about the scoop situation though. if you can't find one then you could make 1 up. Mine did not fit, because at the time there wasn't one for an sf5, so I made it fit. I cut the bottom off & re-fibre glass'd the bottom area shape, so I could fit it to my bonnet. Reusing the oem slider bolt things. So it bolts straight on like oem.
  14. Hi. How did you wire it up? Usually, one would purchase a turbo timer loom specific to your cars make and model. 👍🏻
