  1. Seems strange it started doing it after changing the rad 🤔 There's only really the radiator fan wires /plugs that you'd need to disturb . Are they plugged in correctly and clipped back away from the headers ? Does the pump prime or just blow the fuse as soon as you turn the key to stage 1 ? If you have a multimeter you could google for a ECU pin out for your model Then do a few ECU pin voltage checks and check the harness between ECU /relay /harness and pump .
  2. There can be some rear camber gained by slackening off the rear strut to hub bolts but there's no stock camber bolts in the rear . I've never fitted camber bolts to b.c's but I have to stock struts and my current meister r coilovers . So I'd imagine that camber bolts would fit both stock or any coilover for your cars version 👍
  3. Has the car been mapped for the fmic or other airflow mods ? Is it fuel cut caused by boost exceeding its target (overboost) or not boosting to the usual target ( underboost) . If its underboost ,are you sure all the fmic pipework from turbo to throttle body aren't leaking ?
  4. Always fancied doing a h6 swap at some point myself , nice legacy too 😎
  5. Alyn @asperformance or mark at lateral performance in the uk would be able to source new oe or upgraded gear and ring sets for either 5 or 6 speeds
  6. Can you take the top of the ECU case off , as it might have a esl daughter board ,simtek or other mapable chip inside . Do you have a boost gauge if so what is the max bar of boost ?
  7. Although I've swapped a few tie rods and track rod ends , unfortunately I can't remember the size . Like most scooby bolts it will probably be a tight "jap thread" you could try taking the tie rod to a hardware store and see if they have a suitable lock nut to fit ?
  8. Gutted I can't make many of the big shows this year , just a few local ones . Still not moved house yet 🙄 Once I do I'll be busy building a workshop and plastering the whole house 😏 Glad to see it's gonna get sorted now though , as although I'm a moderator and I know my way around scoobies... I haven't a clue about organizing show stands 🤔
  9. New coilpacks will probably give you a stronger spark but it it starts to misfire under boost I dare say you'll need to upgrade them to newage . Keep us posted on how you get on at attowes 😉
  10. Sounds like you've been busy , I've been working on mine for over 8 years .... still not finished 😂 By the time I've crossed one thing off the top of the list 😎 I've added 3 things to the bottom of the list 🙄
  11. Looking good bud 😎 Have you done a newage coilpack conversion? That might be the next thing you'll have to do , as the classic coilpacks tend to have a inadequate spark over 1.2 bar .
  12. I'm sure I've seen that on this forum a few years back but unfortunately can't remember their username . Unusual body kit , especially on a wagon , I like it though think it really works 👍
  13. Sorry ,Think I might have skim read w reg as wrx , sounds like a good excuse so I'm sticking with that one 🤐😂 Unfortunately I dont know much about classic non turbo wagons .v6 gf8 I think would be the turbo equivalent of year wagon . Hopefully one of the na owners can help , @nictriumph maybe?
  14. One o2 sensor on a v6 and its located in the downpipe neck just after the turbo hotside, buddy 👍
  15. Look in the tech section there's a how 2 for self checking ECU codes , for classic cars. As Most obd code readers don't work on the subaru odb1 system . If you're just cruising you should get mid 20' to low 30's mpg but when squeezing the loud pedal lot they will drink heavy
