    Why don't you buy the full set of cams off @Gripless ? Should be cheaper than 550 +gst for sure..

    Hi All, I'm working on a CNC machined TGV delete to be used with v7 STI intake manifolds. I've modeled the part myself based on a factory aluminum TGV and had it 3D printed and test fit. The design will allow for standard Subaru injectors and rails for all injectors ports, this allowing flexibility when building up your fueling system (i.e. aftermarket injectors or rails for Subaru v7 Imprezza STI will fit in both lower and upper locations, along with factory v7 injectors/rails). The benefit of dual injectors per cylinder is when you are chasing big horsepower, and a large single injector per cylinder (i.e. 1500cc and above) will achieve poor resolution at part load/cruise, resulting in a stumble or accelerator hunting at cruise. With twin injectors, you can retain the factory injectors for low horsepower duty, and allow the ECU to bring on the secondary injectors only as needed, thus providing factory levels of fueling control at low engine load and adequate fueling for high horsepower runs. This design is intended to utilise your primary injectors in the lower injector ports for general duties, while the upper injectors provide additional fueling as required. This will require an aftermarket ECU to control the additional 4 injectors and it is best you consult with your tuner if your ECU is capable of managing the extra 4 injectors. I'm currently working through the adapter for mounting the upper fuel injector rail and pricing with a CNC machinist with the final version to be cut from aluminum billet. As you will understand, the bigger the batch of these the lower the final cost, so if anyone is interested please get back to me via private message and I can put you on the list. I'll post some pictures up here shortly of the 3D printed version, but please be aware that this isn't the final product, as details such as fillets will be added to improve machine-ability and reduce costs. I'm happy to answer questions anyone has, just fire away. Cheers, Jono Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

    No difference in suspension set-up between revs A-E.

    Maybe it’s just the sensor reading better without the burnt oil in the exhaust. Sensor may see oil as fuel since it’s the base from which petrol is made. That or oil blocks the reading of oxygen a bit Engine may be running the same.

    Best bet is to get some good quality high-output HID bulbs and give the headlight lenses a good polish. I'm running genuine Philips bulbs in mine and they're pretty good.

    Maybe a good option for you would be to go to a kelford cam? Nothing extreme or anything but since you've gotta replace the cams?

    Urban selection series perhaps? Nothing extraordinary in this department though. Push start/keyless entry was introduced in MY08, shifters even earlier in MY06.

    Finally got my order from the US to ceramic coat my car, should help keep all the road spray crap off when it rains 👌🏼

    Stripped the car down for more sound deadening: Added some foam on top of the transmission tunnel too (didn’t photograph it)

    Ok haven’t spent much time around the car and build lately but repost from the 500kw build. Kind of want it done mid October or I’ll run into other things I need to get sorted. Wiseco boostline rods are top of list, as well triangles are structurally awesome (without the O) Plus rated to 2000hp so no chance they will bend or break. RCM 12/14mm studs means no head modification and just tapping the block out. Since that is the only soft metal there is no reason to go 14mm as s99 steel should not stretch unless the engine s***s itself. I was going ARP but the prices are way too high for the 11mm let alone anything bigger. More I’ve seen from overseas that pinning and line honing the crank journals is a must. EFR7163 is here and needs to be ceramic coated then heat wrapped in alloy ceramic alloy sandwich heat shield. Has the dual port turbosmart wastegate actuator all fitted. GFB makes a vent to atmosphere valve for the EFR now so can keep the pssh noises. Thinking to that I will keep the EFR boost solenoid. Exhaust needs a bit or work still to make it straight through not quad tipped. Even though it is titanium smaller AdrenalinR one naught sound better. Luckly I don’t have to drive to work as that pitch stop still sounds like s*** vibrating the firewall. Intercooler is still a big unknown. Really want to go water cooler and no bonnet scoop 😱🤬 yes yes, special place in hell awaits I know.

    If they are standard filament bulbs and are after a simple upgrade, look for some quality Hella/Narva or other branded + output bulbs. Normally in like +120% or +150% etc etc. Bear in mind, this comes at the expense of bulb life If they're the factory HID units, boon's suggestion should have you covered. Side note, @boon when you went to Philips bulbs, did you stay with the OE 4300k colour or venture out for something different? Another thought, on the right hand side lower dash, to the right of the ignition barrel is a little switch panel. On that panel there could be a little scroll wheel numbered 0 through to 5. This is the headlight level adjuster, used to lower the headlight aim based on vehicle load, when you're towing, full boot, 5 passengers etc. If your car is empty (light) the scroll wheel should be on 0, if you're car is fully loaded (heavy), scroll the number up as you need. This lowers your headlights as to not blind oncoming cars when you have a full load (which lowers the rear of your car causing headlights to aim abnormally higher thus blinding)

    Yep and love it! Wish I had bought one of these first time around...

    You could remove the trim around the bottom of the windscreen under the plastic trim and check you don’t have any crap built up, I’m pretty sure that’s where the air feeds into the filter?

    Sorry full tard moment here For some reason thought rev d was all 3rd gen lol. If all suspension is the same from 99-03 then yes only top hats on the front need to be changed. One thing i did also notice is the BL/BP front inserts are a little longer then the BE/BH ones. My BE/BH ones have no thread showing at the bottom perch so basically as high as they can go and are not quite tucking tire on a 225/45 17 tire (10mm off the guard). The rears were exactly the same as my old yellowspeed though. Although the yellowspeeds arent known to go very low. Again sorry for the confusion

    The CV one is a little blooming an not as tight as a good 10” but for the trade off and easy to remove

    So how do these Vega subs actually stand up against a quality full depth one? I've been considering something like this for a while as the large sub has been in the garage since flatnatslast year haha. Way easier than getting a custom box made up to hug the side of the boot.

    15kg = Skinny vs chubby for the passenger as for bungee cords only ever in a sedan. They don’t hold up well if you hit something

    I’ve given up on amps and underseat subs are now awesome I have the C Vega one at 40% at repco.

    Go to Partsouq.com enter your vin, see if they have cams in stock. Cheapest parts supplier for oem almost every time. Shipping is fast

    10mm gap is better than cutting the screen off on the sides. There’s a few ways to cover it up, foam around the sides, sheet of black plastic cut to size. Depends how good you are with your hands

    Hey man, You're a top (the top?) contributor around here so I'm happy to be able to help with this one. Just took mine out recently to remove the useless screen and make my Note 9 fit instead, so happened to already have these pics that should answer your Q. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mg2kmreq64oxuv7/20190805_172300.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/l60squvyssijwt7/20190805_172350.jpg?dl=0

    Ahh think you might have cracked it, it doesn't have the Spec B front, has dual single exhaust tips, but interior is just like that Urban Selection model, its much nicer interior than my old 04 3.0r had for sure.
  32. 1 point
    What exhaust tips does it have? Dual or quad? A few special editions got the alcantara inserts but haven't seen a standard GT or Spec B with it before. The rest of those things are standard for that year. The front bumper is the easiest defining feature of a Spec B, will look like this with the wide fog light inserts.

    So my gf thinks I spend too much time on the car and she gave me an ultimatum... her or the car... at first I was skeptical, I thought I might have needed a bigger sunroof! But she went out without a problem 😏 If you find yourself in the same predicament I think the button is in the same general area, somewhere under the steering column labeled “ejecto seat”

    I'm gonna play devils advocate and say that unless you can find something else that killed it (failed injector or something) then it almost certainly was the tune, a little bit of knock will savage your big ends. Relatively low kms and power to have it run a bearing.

    OK this is now officially a review thread, replaced the fronts with these on weekend http://www.jaycar.co.nz/Sight-%26-Sound---Home/Hi-Fi-Speakers-%26-Accessories/Component-Speakers/6-5-Paper-Cone-Woofer-Midrange/p/CW2194 Had to ditch the factory brackets and secure them direct to the door (magnet size was too big to fit through the spacer hole). Must say for a $41 speaker (each), they produce a very nice punchy mid bass and almost as much bass as the factory 8" sub. Ive use Response brand before in the past, and as per the older models, they don't dissapoint. They dont upset the balance of the system, and id rate them a 10-15% improvement over stock. Settings after install Bass +2 Treble -2 Fade - Front +9

    Hi all, My car was stolen today from my work in Hornby Christchurch. It was taken from 16 Branston Street. If anyone sees it please could you pm me. Police have been notified. Car is a 1999 WRX STI in silver as pictured, with gold oz wheels. It no longer has the windscreen banner. @thewabbit1 Mod update - added links as pictures

    This was stolen a few years back, but thought it might still be worth putting out there. Immaculate 94' silver legacy wagon, Completely stock visually with the only 'modification' being a slightly less restrictive exhaust with a nice rumble. No towbar, not a GTB. Plates are XP7297. Cash reward will be offered by myself. Stolen from the Botanic Gardens in Wellington. Cheers
