    underbody sealing help

    You can get waxoil in a big tub with a sprayer, but I found that to be more of a hindrance than anything, followed all the instructions and stood in a tub of hot water to soften up but it still went everywhere and I mean everywhere, The end result was gloops of stuff where I didn't want it, the manifold and exhaust was fun, pulling up to the lights with clouds of smoke pouring off the car. The following time I decided to use the stuff you apply with a brush, takes loads longer but you get alot better coverage, You'll need to wire brush the underside to remove any loose crud/ rust then just 'paint' anything that's not exhaust drivetrain related, For any box sections or places you need to apply I bought a waxoil rattle can, Its a messy job and very laborious but worth it of you have a spare day, Failing that you could take it somewhere for a professional job@mfnick had his done that way pm him for a cost I've a couple of before and after pics somewhere I'll dig out, from when I did mine Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  3. Cobra sport will do you one, (they did for me) Failing that Heywood & Scott used to Or the other option should be to cut and insert a section into the one you have Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    You really need to be a bit more specific, What's the aim of the build? what other parts have you got to go in, may give people a starting point with the help your require Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  5. How full was the fuel tank when you experienced this ? Could be a fuel cut from the tank being fairly empty and struggling to pick up, Or it could be boost related, have you run any diagnostics ? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Boost solenoid help?

    Unless you have a manual boost controller then all pipes should be connected as per oem, Is there any evidence to suggest there's a boost controller ? Have you found any loose vac hoses that are sat in the bay doing anything ? This is what a three port should look like Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  7. Handy with a die kit ? Could always just cut a new thread & buy a new gearknob Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Hello & welcome , Feel free to get involved here were all friendly, as for the button post a picture up may help, but could be anything going by other random buttons and trinkets found in imports, As for tuning, how much do you want to spend, once the modding starts it can end up a very slipper slope, I'm sure one of the leggy owners will be along to give you some more pointers Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    Help on Impreza Suspension.

    @Mrb is your best bet as he's got fairly comprehensive knowledge, but have a look at www.importcarparts.co.uk that will list all the correct items for you car & you can always cross reference them against the site you've found Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  12. Hello, Glad your enjoying ownership, once you start modding it becomes a slippery slope ! So most of us have had at least a map and plenty have done much more, Sports cats don't always pass mot, (mine never did) but at least it passes a visual inspection, Typically a panel filter updated fuel pump and map will the figures your after, not to mention an Increase in torque driveability & if your lucky mpg, As for parts Oem and standard parts www.importcarparts.co.uk Anything else Scoobyparts Scobworld Scoobyclinc To name a few !

    Impreza wrx 2007 battery & brakes

    Have you run any diagnostics? Could be any number of things, How much brake fluid is in the reservoir, is it below the min line ? How's your brake pads looking? Do you know anyone with a cheap one reader ? I'd have a look at all the above, read the codes see what comes up or anything obvious 1st Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    How handy are you with a spanner & soldiering iron ? It's really quite simple do you have a mechanical or electrical gauge ? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
