  1. Hi can anyone help me I have a 1994 wrx that had been decatted I have since fitted a 200cpi sports cat and its still failing the emissions for the mot any help would be grateful my car is a wrx 1994 gc8 jdm import thanks
  2. Hey team, I have just signed up, seen similar posts regarding this but I have done some extra things unlike others. I have recently converted to a front mount intercooler and upgraded to a Td05 20g turbo, I have also put in a DW200 fuel pump and still have STI Pink injectors to go in..I have put these in and I am now having what seems to be a misfire issue. I believe it is from a vaccum leak but I am stumped on where it could be coming from. I have it at a shop but it is there on a pay first basis and it is there to get other work carried out too so I am doing most of the work myself as much as I can. The list is as follows as to everything I have replaced and what I have done to try find this issue: TD05 20G - New gaskets, studs, nuts etc. All secure and tight. Oil feed is tight, oil return is on but needs clamped. Water feed is tight, water return needs tightend (Wastegate actuator is in the way, cant get anything in there till I put my external on.) K&N Pod filter connecting to a silicone Induction pipe - Revirculating bov hose has been blocked off with a plug and the PCV hose has been replaced and fitted with clamps. (I am also running a boost tap, I know slap me now but it is locked on 8psi and only temporary.) So the front to hoses are blocked off. Front mount intercooler - All the joiners are if anything extra tight and have all been clamped down with think boy clamps. Blow off valve is mounted on the pipin and has an adapter and has been clamped on with hose clamps and a circlip. Breather hoses on the metal rail running across the top of the intake manifold - friend of mine snapped one so I replaced them both with silicone 10mm hose and they are clamped with zip ties and fit fine. Spark plugs - These are a fit the vehicle standard and the car starts up fine (The motor was flooded so replacement was necessary.) They unflooded the car real quick but as stated there is a misfire/rough idle. Coils were all fine when I looked at them. Oil change and oil filter - Using oem parts and I believe 5/30 is what i put in it, fully synthetic stuff. Oem fuel filter - Just standard fuel filter change with the fuel pump fit in snug and the hoses are all fine. Oil pressure gauge - I have installed a 60mm boost gauge, AFR gauge and Oil Pressure gauge, the oil pressure sensor sits behind the alternator nice and snug but it sill isn't reading any pressure (Probably my dumb **** not soldering the wires to the sensor) the boot gauge is fine that was easy as and the AFR hasn't been wired in yet. As far as I can remember that is all I have done motor wise etc. Now we get to the juicy part. I start the car and for a second it is fine it goes up to about 1500 to 1800 rpm as it is a cold start but it drops down to about 800 to 500 and the motor shakes, actually makes a horrible noise from the intercooler piping rubbing on the guard from its little fit. I feather the throttle and I get up to 2k rpm and it sounds normal but it instantly drops down every time I lift off and continues to throw a tantrum. The car was running fine before I did all the work. Now I have not checked the fault codes, I am assuming the shop will do that if the smoke machine doesn't show a vacuum leak. I have squeezed, pulled and twisted every vacuum line but there are no splits, holes, brittleness or anything on any of them. I can only think the worst at this point and I would rather not think it if I can help it. Hence why I am reaching out. I am absolutely stumped. Feel free to ask any questions and provide any ideas, I will probably try most of your ideas on Monday when I can get the keys back to open the car. I have had the battery out for more than long enough for the ecu to reset and still the same issue.
  3. My 54 reg silver WRX hatchback engine has blown and as I have 2 other Subarus I am going to scrap it. Up until the point it blew yesterday all was well and much of it is in quite good condition for its age so would be good for parts or as a project for a recon engine. If anyone would like to make me an offer for the whole vehicle before I phone the scrap traders then please feel free.
  4. Is there anywhere i could buy actual tail lights that look like that and not the overlay thing?
  5. Hello everyone, I recently bought a 2010 hatch wrx and am considering getting it mapped. I am a little worried after I heard the factory tune runs lean and don't wanna get any trouble because of it. Hence I want to get the car tuned. (Obviously the extra power isn't exactly a downside either haha) Who do you recommend going to? I live down south in Dorset but I don't mind travelling a bit. I've read good stuff about scoobyclinic on this forum... Are they the goto people for tuning Subarus? Thank you in advance!
  6. Hey I am planning on buying a 2009 Impreza hatch but i wanna make it look wider like an WRX or even an STI, but i have no idea if there is anywhere i could buy those OEM style wide fenders and bumpers.
  7. Hello, I have a Subaru Impreza 2009 WRX 2.5 hatch, it has the CD player head unit, I am considering installing a Sat Nav depending on how much is involved. My preference would be to fit the OEM one as the car is totally standard and unmolested. There seems to be OEM Sat Nav units available for about £250. Can anyone tell me what is involved in getting this to function once installed? Are there any codes needed before it will work with my car / ECU? What about updates etc? Can it be used as a navigation unit free without a subscription (Starlink)? As you can tell i don't know a lot about Sat Nav units but I have been working on cars a long time so installing it is no issue. Thanks for your help, Dave
  8. Hi there I own a 97 subaru impreza wrx. I inherited from my dad who passed. He always wanted to put a bigger turbo on it and get it mapped. So I'm going to do it. Just wondering what is a safe power to go to. I've heard people mention that gearboxes can go on them. It's decated. Got an intercooler, uprated cold air feed and walbro 255 pump. Im getting 550cc injectors and a bigger turbo. I was thinking hybrid my td04 or getting a 20g td05. If anyone else has other turbo ideas I'm happy to hear them. Just dont want to be spending a £1000 just on a turbo lol. Not that rich. Just looking for general advice on safe bph and things I should be checking out for when doing these upgrades. Thank you in advance.
  9. I’m collecting a late 2005 model WRX Wagon next week, and the steering wheel is seriously tired - first picture (looks worse close up) I’d like to change it to the earlier version, also pictured, is this possible or will there be airbag issues? If not this one are there any other options I have? Any help much appreciated. James

  12. 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
  13. Hello people, the front brakes on my 2008 impreza rx are binding so I now want to upgrade them I believe they are 2 pot vented at the moment. From research I dont think sti ones won't fit but will the wrx 4 pot ones fit?? I've found wrx pro calipers and disks for about £250. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers
  14. Good to be here. Currently on my 3rd subie but this ones a long term project. Mechanically nearly finished then time for bodywork and interior. Photos to follow
  15. Hi. I have a seibon Carbon bonnet on my 2005 blobeye however the current washer jet nozzles seem to be too small and move about in the new bonnets holes, are larger ones available and does anyone know from where or have any ideas. Gratefull for your responses.
  17. Hi everyone ive just joined and am going crazy. I have spent months going round in circles looking for a company in the uk to send my subaru impreza 2002 wrx to for an engine build. i would like more power full engine build tuning ect. Please can i get some reputable recommended company`s thank you.
  18. I have a Subaru hatch WRX-S (Narrow body) and I am keen to upgrade to 6 gears. Running 400bhp (I know not safe) and am awaiting the inevitable bang from my 5 speed gearbox 😂 anyone recommend a company who can take care of this? Parts, fitting the lot. Im from near Brighton so south is ideal. Aware it’s a big job however I haven’t got the time to do it myself and from research the rabbit hole goes deep (axle, lower control arms, driveshaft etc etc 😢) and I will want it running ASAP once it does pop 💥 thanks in advance AWD fam 👌🏻
  19. Hi - don't shoot me please I'm not in a Subaru, BUT I'm chopping private wheels shortly and have the following number plate coming off: N (for Nippon) 4 (for Flat Four) 28 (for 280 Horses) WRX Please message me if you want to discuss, or have a better idea on where best to post this particular 'for sale'. Thanks.
  20. I've got one of those haha issues: I bought a hyperflow TMIC on ebay for 280 which seemed like a decent deal since STi ones go for 250. Problem is it is larger than an STi intercooler. Much much larger. Since I have a WRX I've got to change the intercooler tray (the metal thingie that sits between scoop and TMIC) and the scoop itself because it won't fit the STi TMIC tray. But even this one is small for the hyperflow, about 1 inch smaller in width and half an inch in height. Has anyone ever run across one of them, installed one of them? Apart from just ignoring the difference in size, I don't know what to do (I'm prepared to ask a colleague to design me a custom one in CAD but that will be super pricey). I'll upload some pics soon. Cheers, A.
  21. Apologies if this is Posted in the wrong place. 2 days into Impreza ownership the CEL comes on suggesting secondary air pump valve stuck open 😒 the 60amp slow blow fuse had blown and the closest Subaru main dealers only had a 50 which I replaced it with anyway, I’m expecting it to go again first thing in the morning now the outside temperature has dropped. So what’s the general consensus with these pumps? Subaru want an eye watering amount to replace the system but i’m aware they can be removed, blocked off and mapped out (I did this on the equivalent system on my old Yamaha R1 which was easy enough) but can these valves be cleaned manually and freed up at all or is it just not worth the hassle? Might be a good excuse to get hold of a prodrive back box and panel filter if it goes to a tuner 😁 Its a 2006 wrx completley standard with 56k on it. cheers guys 👍🏻
  22. Hi, I recently brought an imported 04 STI, just wanted to say hi to everyone:) Stock at the moment apart from a new English head unit and of course hella horns, but I've got plans for it. Ed
  23. hi guys, new to the forum and the scooby scene I'm looking at buying my first Subaru, being a Bugeye WRX (not everyone's cup of tea, but I like them 😂) I know that rust on the rear arches is a well known issue, is there anything else I should look out for? common issues/problems? Any advice is greatly appreciated Cheers Jim
  24. Hey, new member here. After some advice to rectify what is already beginning to become rather annoying. So my Bug 2002 Impreza Wrx will not start..... What it is doing is repeatedly clicking (starter Motor?) I turn the ignition to "On" and get the Droning sound (Fuel Pump?) and then it just clicks and clicks, Like its trying to turn over. What i have done is: Replaced the Battery, Changed the starter motor (2nd hand). I have new spark plugs, and the engine is not ceased (had large torque on main bolt and it turns smooth). When I turn the key the light on the dash beside the clock (Sigma alarm) goes off, so not Immobilizer I don't think. Have sat in car entered the Key code in manually on and off locks doors and bleeps and then again unlocks doors and bleeps and still no joy. I am not near any Cell masts that would prevent signal from the keyfob. And all earths in the car appear to be grounded correctly. Its almost like the car wants to run but there is either no Fuel getting to it (Poured some fresh in from a Jerry Can, Just incase!) or there is no spark to ignite. I am getting rather Frustrated with this one, and any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated Kindest regards Tony.
