  1. For sale. Aspen White 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX Bought via SOC 5 months ago (see previous post here ) I bought the car with the intended use as a daily driver. However I'm selling due to lack of use (now permanently working from home due to COVID). Original Ad (Mature Enthusiast): 2006 Impreza Hawkeye. White with black / blue cloth interior. STi Wing. Hid Lights. Imported from Japan 2018 Grade 4B. Japanese service history. Recent full service including all belts, oils, filters, wheel alignment and new Toyo tyres fit. New steering pump. Underside treated with Dinitrol, further images available. UK Pioneer headunit with handsfree kit. Standard specification apart from back box exhaust, original exhaust included which was too quiet. Odometer in kms, 147k kms / 91k miles. Run on V Power with standard factory map, feels stronger than quoted 250bhp and over 30mpg on a run achievable. Road tax £265 per year, first registered 18/03/06. MOT to 09/20 no advisories. Car in excellent condition, any inspection welcome. £7,500 for quick sale. In my short ownership: EcuTek Stage1 Map | Steve Cotton (Cotton Competition) Cosworth Air Filter Set of Iridium IX Plugs (BKR6EIX) Fuel Pump Kill-switch Stage one cut / polish Ceramic Paint Coating (CarPro CQuartz) GTechniq Protection (interior Fabric) New key cut (Subaru replacement keys) Apart from the very light modifications the car is completely stock / unmolested. Very well looked after by all previous owners. I would say pampered. Currently washed once a week with all Meguiars products. Current millage is 150k KM As I was planning on keeping the car long term I've spent 1500 quid on getting it perfect. I'd like to get back what I put it @ £9000 Based in NW England Cheers, Dan
  2. Hey all, New member here. Just posted on NASIOC and another sub-forum on here. Im just looking for some advice besides the usual nay-sayers that will always offer the usual buy a WRX. This is out of the question unfortunately. As the title suggests I just bought a 2005 Forester EJ20 XT and im looking to engine swap into my daily 2008 Impreza 1.5r Hatchback non turbo. I have both complete running and driving cars and aim to sell the rest of the forester and my 1.5 engine and gearbox to help fund the project as I go. I have space and some tools but will need to hire an engine crane, anything else specialist etc. I do also have connections with friends and a couple local workshops/garages I can quote to help me but i'm still debating just how much of this I want to take in myself. I did study automotive mechanics at college for 3 years but have no real experience with a project of this size. Please let me know any advice you'd have for a first timer and any advisory maintenance I should look into pricing for "while it's out anyway" lol. Would love to find a similar conversion or comparable build that's been done I could use for information but I haven't found much so far on NASIOC, even with the popularity of the hatchback in the USA Cheers in advance guys. Pics of Both cars and the EJ engine should be attached.
  3. Hi I am rebuilding the engine in my 2001 uk300 I have all the bits but the old small ends has 2holes to let the oil in but the new ones only has one they are oem Subaru and can’t seem to find any others do I just fit them with the hole facing the top of the engine so the oil runs down thought or is there 2 types Many thanks joe
  4. Hi all, I've just about finished a hovercraft build which is using an EJ201 (stock & naturally aspirated), and due to using the engine in a hovercraft it worked out a lot easier to get Megasquirt setup on it to tune accordingly. At the moment, the main aim is just to get a safe/reliable tune on to it so that it is running well and smoothly, but unfortunately I can't remember or find info on the web that states clearly what the original stock redline of the EJ201 is, which is probably a safe starting point before trying to increase the power beyond stock. Does anyone know what the redline would have been when it started it's life in a Legacy? I assumed it would be somewhere around the 6000rpm mark. If anyone has experience of tuning them beyond stock power with stock components, I'd be keen to hear what can safely be achieved with minimal effort :) Pic for attention attached & pic of what it will be doing next year when we get the wings sorted for it. Cheers all!
  5. Is it me or are the brakes on the hawkeye 160bhp non turbo terrible? I literally feel they have zero stopping power. Now I'm aware clearly fluid, tryes, pads, discs all play a part in this however are they known for being a poor braking system on the hawkeye. Or is it my modle GD9 being a non turbo all having poor brakes. My classic WRX I had previously seemed to have a far greater stopping power. I have been looking at the GD9 brakes avaliable and looking at ebay it would appear STI WRX four pots and 2 pot calipers front and rears fit. Is this the case? If anyone has upgraded a non turbo braking system before any information would be greatly appricated. And I have looked already at the disc sizes for both systems (non turbo and wrx sti) they appear in my modle year to both be 266 and 277. Again any knowledge would be greatly appricated. Regards. Rich

  7. Hi there guys, im posting on behalf of my cousin, hes got a 1993 subaru impreza wrx jdm import for sale. It was imported around 2007 and it is completely original and stock and no modifications have been done to it probably except the stereo lol. This is a version 1 impreza which means it has the more robust closed deck block. it has only 145,000km which translates into approximately 90,000 miles! the car is in excellent condition and is rust free!!! it has a few tiny age related marks which are to be expected seeing its 24 years old it is but very very little dents or scratches are present. it is absolutely mint inside with very little sag. as far as i remember it has original subaru mats as well! i will double check! Just had £500 spent on radiator water heater and heater matrix pipes it is restricted to 115mph He is currently the 4th owner There are some extras he is going to include with the car such as the drivers side lights. Offers around £2900 from genuine interests and please NO TIME WASTERS or TEST PILOTS!!! it is a classic and will only go up in value!!! any questions please ask. this is his number 07772016356 If you want you can inbox me as well!
  8. Hi guys, As part of the general work on my project GC8 (thread below) - I'm trying to resolve an issue the car seems to have at idle. Essentially, it runs beautifully from cold, and when driven (any throttle application improves the situation). However when warmed up, the idle will drop to the point when it's struggling to run. This can manifest as the car stalling when the clutch is depressed during driving. As a test I've tried unplugging the MAF, this makes things worse. No check engine light is shown. To complicate matters as you might see from the build thread, the chassis is a phase 1, the engine/harness/dash/etc is later model (V6) STI. To me it seems like a sensor issue of some sort, possible air temp? I'm still trying to work my way around EJ20s. Any help gratefully received! Adam
  9. Hi guys, do all EJ20 engines use the same flywheels? turbo and non turbo? looking to get a lightened flywheel for my non turbo when I change the clutch, any idea's if I can get one to fit?
  10. I have for sale an EJ20 Open deck Forged engine complete with: Marley pistons and conrods ACL bearings Uprated 12mm cosworth oil pump ARP 2000 head studs New sump and bolts Has only covered 5k since forge rebuild, bought from Scooby Spares in Blackpool and never fitted since purchase £1500 Any questions please ask!
  11. Hello everyone.I own a 2006 Subaru Forester 2.0X(european version/158hp)naturally aspirated.I am curious if i can turn my aspirated engine in a turbo one.The EJ20 which is mounted on 2006 X,is also in turbo boosted edition on 2003-2005 Forester or on the 'Bugeye" Impreza.I want to know if I can make an engine swap ,mounting an EJ20turbo on my car,or if I can make my own engine turbo. If I will try to modify my engine,which parts I should change,and how much it will cost(approximate price).I am not sure if I must change my transmission or the gearbox,taking in consideration that the power of the turbo engine is bigger than the aspirated's one. Sadly,my engine has around 250.000 km(155.000 miles) on it.I would try to reconditionate it,but I'm worried that if it will get serious damages after my turbo conversion(It won't resist too much). Thank you in advance for your answers.
