  1. Hello all I have removed the turbo charger from my fathers 2003 Forester XT (TF035 HM 49135-04500) in an attempt to troubleshoot a performance issue On inspection there is significant play in the shaft in all directions. I have no previous experience with turbo charged engines Is anyone able to offer any recommendations for the next steps? I have attempted to source a replacement CHRA but suppliers have replied stating that a suitable replacement is not available. I have also had separate advice stating that balancing would be required after a new CHRA was installed anyway Do any particular turbo repair companies stand out for their service and value for money based on people's experience? Thanks in advance Steven

    Reeee noise on boost

    Just had the engine out of my 2006 impreza Sti to do the head gaskets (shock). It is now refitted to the car and I'm experiencing a reeeee sounding noise at about 0.4 Bar, getting louder up to 1.1 Bar where the boost limit is hit. I also have code P2021 "Intake runner position sensor/switch low bank 2 c" showing but disappears and stays off for the duration of the drive when reset, but the reeee noise was there from the moment the engine was boosted the first time, where as the code didn't appear until after the MOT last weekend. As far as I'm aware the garage didn't touch the engine. Previously it was showing the same code but on bank 2 a, but this was sorted by installing the sensor correctly as I hadnt previously. Anyone have any ideas on what the noise could be and if its related to the code, and if there is a sensor c on the ej257 intake runners/TGVs? All hoses are tight and ftted correctly around the intercooler and turbo.
  3. Hello all. So I am about to upgrade my stock TD04L 13t turbo on my 2006 WRX. I waiting on my 19t conersion kit and 11 blade turbine wheel arriving. Any way I'm going to send the turbo down to Turbo Dymamic to get it rebuild and have the new parts fitted. I will of course get the car mapped however I was planning on getting the remap done a month or 2 after I've had the upgraded turbo fitted. My question is will the car to ok to drive prior to getting the car mapped? I know the performance will be affected but is there any other concerns regarding this? I wouldn't be thrashing it or anything Inbetween the new upgraded turbo being installed and the tune.
  4. Afternoon all, so I have a 2006 Blobeye Impreza WRX. I had a full rebuild around 8k ago now, and things have been fine up until the last two months or so. I now have the following issues that any advice would be greatly appreciated on: 1 - My car boosts fine following an oil and filter change, but after around 1.5-2k it starts to make a strange noise after around 5-7psi of boost. After an oil and filter change it then boosts up to 19psi with no issues or noise. 2 - My car is using oil - a lot! Every week I seem to be topping up oil levels. I have took the filler cap of whilst running and no puffs of smoke, since owing the car (one year in January2018) it has had 5 oil changes, with magnetic sump plug fitter after the first. Which when I change has a small amount of what I can only describe as magnetic sludge on it. No metal partials, just a very fine dust like sludge. This scares me! But reading around I have read that it could be the new bearings wearing in??? I have also read about the PCV valve and that this can increase oil use. Is this true? and where do you find this part in the UK I've looked everywhere! I have part numbers 11819AA001 and 11810AA000 and can only find and import from America - what! My car is also not smoking at all on start up. Condensation yes, but no blue smoke, and when I try and rev or boost higher than just normal driving I don't get clouds of smoke either. Turbo and seals okay I believe? 3 - If i drive at a constant speed/engine load (by this I mean RPM) of above 3k in any gear I get a flashing engine management light - the worst! I've researched and found that this is a misfire. Specifically on an OBD reader is cylinder one. I have done the following to try and rectify it with no success: 1) New set of NGK Iridium Plugs. I've gone for PFR7 (standard STI plugs) as I have a few mods including a ECUtek map that is only running 275bhp, with approximately 19psi of boost. Now I gaped these plugs to 0.65, but then now read that they are 0.7 as standard. Could this be the fault? I have also changed the coil for another one that I had from an STI Intake that I bought, and has not resolved the issue, or changed the cylinder. 4 - when idling from a cold start it idles very well and consistently. When driving if I drop my clutch, the engine speed drops and nearly stalls (<300rpm approx) and then catches itself and increases, it never actually does stall. I have had my MAF sensor out and cleaned this, but made no difference. Now I am no mechanic at all, but I am handy with a spanner and willing to learn, so I hope I haven't embarrassed myself here. This is my first Subaru, and first performance car so please be nice guys. Any advice is greatly appreciated. This is also my daily driver and does around 150-170 miles per week. Thanks in advance, Trev P.S. list of mods: -Rebuilt short block with V7 Pistons, new rings and V10 rods. Honed block and built to a tolerance of "two thou" (so I am told). Re-skimmed heads and pressure tested before fitting. All usual gaskets and seals replaced and including Crank and big end bearings. -Full decat exhaust with ninja two backbox -inner wing induction system - with clean K&N filter -ECUTek remap at 275bhp (tested at Corten Miller - Lincolnshire) after run in of new build - BC Coilovers - hard ride! - Standard Recirculation valve - Silicone hoses all round except turbo intake - doing when I next work on the car Exedy Stage two organic clutch fitted with rebuild Using Subaru Black JDM Oil filter and 5-40 Fully Synthetic Castrol Titanium oil - Planned mods: JDM STI intake with Subaru TGV deletes and STI Pink injectors (bought), and maybe a rebuilt turbo expenses and fiancee permitting lol, and then remap to suit.

  6. Hi, 23 years old newbie. Attached pics of my first ever subaru bought yesterday :D Excited to navigate this site and learn new things :) Just bought 2003 2.0T but dont know what turbo is in it could anybody tell me please? For now I'm assuming a TD04 15g? Someone said TD04 19T but I don't think it is? Completely new to Subarus though so I could be way off. Thanks

    TD04L-13T wanted

    Hi all. I'm looking for a TD04L-13T for my MX5 project. If anyone has one they're willing to sell then please let me know.
  8. So just a quick question to confirm. I own a 2006 WRX, am I right in saying the stock turbo on one of these is the TD04L? I kniw the USDM verson has the TD04L, but wasn't sure if that's the case in the UK as some people state the WRX having just the TD04.

  10. Hello people I took my car impreza classic out today and was giving it a fair bit of acceleration. However upon doing this the car hesitated to accelerate and appeared to have more of a lag/juddering feeling not a major judder no sounds of grinding from under or back or the front of the car just abit of lag then acceleration then lag again and i stress it was hesitant. Has this happened to anyone before and does anyone know what it can potentially be? Cheers

    What Turbo In A Legacy B4 RSK

    Hi Guys, I am a new member with an issue with one her turbo's! :-( My car is a Legacy B4 RSK. Its a Jap import and I am getting all sorts of conflicting opinions whether it is a ball bearing type turbo or a non ball bearing one - a journal type lubricated by oil. Also depending on the manufacturer I have been told I may have to buy a new one from a main dealer because a IHI one can only be refurbed if the problem is the piston rings as it is impossible to get any other parts. This is all new to me but I really love to learn about my car so does anyone have any knowledge of this? All comments gratefully received. :-) Thanks so much!!

NOT FORGED!! the car is making 280bhp and 350 Lb/ft torque but it is running out of poke after gear 3 Has anyone got any solid advice on decent turbo upgrades? Ideally direct bolt on? Fairly mechanically adept. Have looked at new pumps and injectors if needed but not looking to blow the engine. Would like to make around 330bhp safely. all advice welcome 😊👌👍 cheers

    New Subaru owner

    Morning all, recently purchased an 08 wrx hatch after owning modded n/a pegeouts for years.. well what can I say, I love it. Should've bought one years ago. Already fitted a full turbo back exhaust and it's off to Andy Forrest next Friday for stg1 tune. Not going to go daft with it cos in a couple years I hope to afford an STI.
  20. Hi, took a hundred mile trip yesterday to look at a 2014 WRX STI, instantly fell in love with it. Hoping to collect it on Tuesday, with a part-ex of my civic type r (fn2). Not only my first Subaru, but my first AWD and turbo! First step I want to do is to research air oil separators as I believe they can help. No plans for modding at the moment, and even if I do it would be minimal (exhaust and remap). Anyway, hi😀

    Blown Turbos

    Hey everyone, just curious as to if anyone has any completely blown turbos that are scrap they don't want or need anymore. Can pickup if fairly local to Newcastle or can pay for the shipping. Want to try making a little desktop piece out of one 😊

    Subaru Sti turbo

    Hi, I'm new to the chat and might not know much but I'm looking for a subaru sti TD05 16g or 18g turbo in good condition! If anyone has one laying around please let me know... I'm located in London. thanks in advance!
  23. Morning all, Im having a few problems with my 2000 WRX Turbo after the weekend of fitting new parts, these parts include new knock sensor, new vapour canister, new crank shaft sensor, and new air filter. These parts where changed as there was a VERY SLIGHT miss fire when around the 3k rev mark but she pulled through well enough after a second or 2. However, since fitting all the new parts there is a major "cough and splutter" that happens when pulling away at low revs (e.g. when at rolling speed in 2nd gear she bounces and kicks like crazy) the only thing left i can think it could be would be the ignition coil pack itself (the plugs and leads are all new this year) but i am a bit reluctant to do this as brand new they are around £200-£250 and I've just had to spend £600 on a vet bill for the dog. has anyone else encounter this problem (the car not the dog) and what was done to fix it? Many Thanks, Turner.
  24. New car time. I recently sold the bmw and wanted something with a bit more power so i bought a Subaru Impreza Wrx Uk300 in black. The car came with a pipercross cone filter, 3 inch straight through decat exhaust system and some Sti styling such as the spoiler, splitter, fog covers and winglets. I'm planning on making this a fairly big build, probably bigger than any i've done before. Plans are to get some new wheels which i'm hoping to get some rota gtr's or grids, also planning on having it sit lower on coilovers and get it remapped which should give me around 300bhp. I will also be upgrading all of the bulbs to leds and the headlights will be fitted with hid's soon. Further down the line i'm planning on engine and turbo upgrades. Body work wise, a full respray and a fair amount of custom work. Potentially going to convert it to a 2 door and fit some flared panels to the rear 1/4 to give it a wider look. Should be an interesting project. So far i've removed the grill and centre console which will be be going gloss black. I smoothed over the cup symbol on the centre console just for a slightly cleaner look. I cut the badge out of the grill and smoothed the area aswell so they should be fitted back in the next few days. Stay tuned.
  25. Hi All The foz is running .9 bar with a cosworth panel filter and 2.5" catback exhaust and the only other changes are uprated anti-roll bar linkage and dump valve off a impreza (recirculating) I'm considering getting a GFB/SCR Mach 1 dump valve on as I miss the noise on gear change - has anyone used one or got any knowledge of them? Found it on scooby clinic - think its £120. Any recommendations or thoughts would be appreciated Spraying the wheels and calipers this weekend and plasti dipping all the badges. I'm also considering plasti dipping the bumpers and door protectors black (with glossifier over the top to match the metallic green shine) - I'm not a fan of the silver / champagne colour on the foz I've got! May even do the bonnet too - anyone ever plasti dipped before? Ben
