  1. Past hour
  2. Flatten the pipe to an oval shape. Still want to see the 4” side exit on the alto.
  3. Looking for a Legacy Spec B gearbox with the I.D above which has the 4.444 final drive ratio in good working order. I havent been on Clubsub in years and wasnt sure about posting in the classifeild section since theres only 1 post. Therefore admin delete if not allow. If anyone has one of these gearboxes and interested in selling. Contact 027-8650516 Thanks Kevin
  4. What you get when you buy XForce 3.0R do get very droney if opened up too much. You need a decent resonator in there, or beefier mufflers.
  5. Redline used to (or still) sell HKS and XForce to suit. I had Fujitsubo and HKS systems installed on my BR. Fujitsubo was loud and droney, HKS was sweet as. Hardly ever anything used comes for sale as these are fairly new and do not get modified as much as the previous generation.
  6. I'm confused... do you love it or do you need to fix it because it's annoying?

  8. Hi everyone. I installed the X-force Stainless cat back exhaust on my Legacy 3.0R 2004 Wagon last night and I love it! It sounds so f***ing good! Only thing is it drones a bit at slow speeds/ low RPM. Has anyone successfully fixed this without too much expense? On a side note: The stock exhaust had a ball and socket joint with spring washers behind the 3rd cat but the X-Force exhaust had a flat flange (no socket) and the bolts provided didn't fit. I ended up having to fudge it into place using the stock spring bolts and squishing it onto the "ball" gasket. I did it up pretty damn tight so I feel like it must be air tight but I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and how they fixed it? I have some photos but dont have a URL to post them to. Cheers
  9. @Gripless He can't fit a 3" off the turbo - no space for now. But it expands to a 4" downpipe at about where the headers are
  10. More use to @preim with the alto. 4” dump pipe on the 660cc. Low mount may allow a 4” through the 90 degree bend at the front of the motor. @Niran have you sold @j_bone on the idea yet?
  11. Nah was 4.5” intake pipe but pretty sure downpipe was o my 3” , might have pics somewhere if someone needs but don’t think you’d get more than 3” very easily there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yesterday
  13. That'll do it. Weld v-band flange on the 3" side and its Christmas. Thats off ebay. Surely will be some NZ variants floating around
  14. I think @Batbaruman had a 4" downpipe on his V7? Or at least someone on here did. Need to find a nice short 3"-4" transition in stainless, ideally. I wonder if someone makes a nice billet one with a 3" v-band flange integrated....
  15. If Kol12 doesn’t want it I’ll be happy to take it off your hands but would need it posted to Palmerston North... let me know and I’ll flick you postage costs?
  16. @boon yeah that'll be the challenge aye. Will try make 4" work lol
  17. Has anyone put aftermarket catback or axleback exhaust on their BM Legacy? Looking for some suggestions as it seems like there are limited options.
  18. Fascinating. I wonder how large of a downpipe you can even fit in behind the turbo on our cars though? When mine finally gets an exhaust built I'll probably go for a 4", at least for the first 50cm or so.

    Yea some additional clearance would be awesome. Throwing some larger meatier tires onto the Outback platform as is would suffice I think. Also when it comes to the beach its important to keep in mind that traditional alloy wheels are not ideal as they get sand stuck in the inside causing major imbalance and shuddering once you get up to speed. You have to clean them out al the time so getting some steelies that have a dish on them rather than concave makes things easier <-- hope that makes sense like this This one looks slightly lifted though 🤔

    Would they be sweet in stock condition to drive on the beach/ softer sand ? I like the idea of some added clearance to allow for some meatier tires .

    I like this idea, will keep an eye on this thread as its something I've been thinking of doing in the next couple years once I escape Auckland. You could also go for a Lancaster or Outback.. no work to be done just buy it and go surf.

    G'day clubsub, I'm a Surfer who's been looking for a 4x4 van which I can use to drive down the beach and sleep in etc Recently seen some AWD early 2000's Subaru Legacy's with raised suspensions that look to meet my requirements and wold be better for a daily driver than a Van. From what I understand you can raise a car 50mm using Spacer's without needing to cert it, something similar to the below: https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/parts-other-makes/suspension/listing-2228292407.htm?rsqid=b36add00c5444593b2574bced3f6951b-003 Then there's the option of raising the suspension/ using Forrester suspension to really Jack the Legacy up which would require Certing something like the link below: https://www.rallitek.com/lift-springs-lift-kits/5634-rallitek-14-rear-raised-overload-spring-kit-outback-2005-2009.html I'm not very knowledgable about car mechanics so Just looking for some advice as to the cost and process involved in each option for an early 2000's Legacy (taking it to a mechanic). Input from anyone that's done this kind of thing before or knows the process would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your advice. Chur, Reds https://www.google.com/search?q=raised+suspension+subaru+legacy&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjj1rn077vjAhVWfysKHYzCD3sQ_AUIECgB&biw=1440&bih=821#imgrc=A0cEDC7UgHao6M:
  23. Basically. I read somewhere in the original post that the best match would be 1.5 times your turbine wheel diameter. So for me its 70mm turbine x 1.5 = 105mm or 4.1" So ELI5 - Get the largest possible downpipe you can fit in there F1 cars basically run no exhaust - turbo outlet is the exhaust. That would be the best you can get. So for our street cars, just largest possible downpipe.
  24. Can someone ELI5? Regardless of turbo size, get/make the biggest downpipe you can?
  25. Eventually upgrade 😂 At this rate sell the GR and get the VA
  26. Yeah man. Think i'll do full 4" to my current 3" downpipe with a taper when i eventually upgrade turbos.
  27. Sadly my down pipe is smaller at 3” than rest of the exhaust 😭 Also explains why removing the cat in down pipe is so much more effective than any other cat. This looks like the same as the CNC head thing. What is good for NA is good for turbo just making the air pump aka engine work more efficiently. Which is the whole pressure differential thing. but mostly covered up by cranking up the boost since that is easier. Looks like two stroke exhaust, step up quickly to get gassed out then taper back down. Wonder if two stroke exhaust modelling would help design the sump pipe?
  28. Most likely. If i understood correctly form the article, even though the turbine outlet is 3" you will still get big gains from increasing the diameter of the downpipe. The larger cross sectional area of the downpipe means the highly turbulent air post turbine has more room and length to sort itself out, as apposed to being jammed through a 3" the whole way. This reduces back pressure and should increase spool and power. The dyno figures to back it on his post are just nuts.
