    Steering angle sensor wrx sti 2006 HELP PLZ

    You may have to get the car plugged in to a laptop and get the sensor re-calibrated, we have vans in the fleet at work and when we fit a new steering angle sensor we have to plug it in and tell it it has a new one fitted then the laptop will show what angle the steering is at, you get it to 0 degrees ( straight ahead) then turn the steering lock to lock then back to centre again, its basically teaching the ecu, hopefully its the same on the scoobs, hope this helps ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

    Aye the kids do take up alot of time bud ma two are always getting in the way or wanting money for this and that, i actually took my baileys dump valve off and replaced it with a forge adjustable one. When you get round to mapping i would deffo give andy forrest a shout and get it done there as he a bit of a god in the scoob world, i was going to get himto do mine but he had just stopped mapping the classics ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

    Cheers mate ๐Ÿ‘, i bought it as a kind of wee project, it came with an apexi air filter, a old school baileys dump valve and a 3'' exhaust from the turbo back but the previous owner never had it mapped so was overboosting when giving it the beans ๐Ÿคจ, so had the engine out it last winter and got the heads skimmed and valves re-cut and re-seated and new gaskets, fitted yellow 440 injectors, uprated map sensor to a newer v5 sti one, got it mapped on esl by a chap called Chris at dyna tune from east kilbride, think its making around 300 ponies and thats @1.2 bar the only thing holding me back is the tmic and the next option is front mount but i'm not going down that road as want to keep the engine bay as original as i can, my mate has a blob sti type uk in crystal grey which has had the works at Rodger clark motorsport, have you any plans for your motor ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘

    You will probably need to go see a mapper to get the secondary air pump mapped out, in other words telling the ecu that its not there anymore

    Hello world! Future owner here!

    Welcome Timmy ๐Ÿ‘, you should be able to pick up a decent blob wrx within you're budget theres loads of them out there its just finding the right one and remember go and see a few of them before you buy because there will be loads of sheds and sellers telling you this has been done, its been well looked after and all the other s**t that goes with it, make sure it has up to date service history and that theres proof of any mods done or mapping etc, servicing these cars is really simple and things like oil filter and fuel filter are easily accessible and theres loads of how to sections on here to help you out, happy shopping and we hope to see pics soon ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Boost solenoid help?

    Welcome to the club buddy, i'm not too clued up on the newage impreza but there should definitely be a pipe coming from that port on the boost solenoid, i think it should go to the pipe from the airbox to the turbo, Hope this helps ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    Td05 turbo

    Hi all does anyone have or know where i can get the exhaust housing or a complete td05 top entry turbo for a 1992 v1 wrx, just found a big dirty crack on the exhaust side of my turbo and can't seem to find anything online thats not cheap chinese rubbish with clear casting faults, cheers folks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‰

    should i remap

    Upgrading the spark plugs is well worth it as they will give you a stronger spark and you'll probs need them for when you get mapped as upping the boost pressure can blow the spark out on normal plugs then you start to get misfires which would mean going away fitting new uprated plugs then having to go get mapped again which all costs pennies ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‘
