  1. I've had one replaced by Novus in Christchurch ~12 months ago, used far to much adhesive and it was visibly messy around the A pillar trims.
  2. The initial post asked if he could fail a wof. The answer is yes. And there is misinformation being disseminated here. Likelihood of getting away with it is something else, and he has a good chance of getting away with it. Then again, with the tightening grip on wof inspections it may not last long.

  3. It explicitly says (page 12): 11-1 "Note: LVV certification is always required for the fitting of a turbocharger as a modification, or the upgrading of a turbo or waste-gate." Interestingly it says you'll need one if the fuel type changes, which I would assume includes ethanol/flex-fuel (13-2, page 13).
  4. Sorry to hijack, but what additional info do you get from measuring egt over egbp (or vice versa)? Is one of them more useful than the other or better bang for buck (so to say)? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  5. I think you are making the right call to go to the link. My conversions have been on a be5a with a wrx a7 ecu and my current be5d with a v3/4 plugin link, and although the wrx ecu went well, the link is a lot more flexible. This is particularly so compared to the early jecs ECU's. If you go to pick a part you could probably find a 4 plug ecu and a set of '3 plugs' and make an adapter on your bench which makes it heaps easier than trying to work in the footwell, this can help if you find a bargain on a plugin for a different model.

  6. And the NZ recall, although Exiga isn't listed, I'm guessing this is because it wasn't officially sold here.
  7. Isn't that the emissions air pump thingy which works at start up to make the exhaust cleaner? (or something like that) Have you checked to see if there are any recalls on your model? Would be worth a look i reckon.
  8. SAS baffle plate fitted, oil temp sensor fitted and wired into the Link, water pump replaced for a single port pump and new turbo oil drain fitted. Just need to clean up the sump and reattach then drop the motor back in its hole. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  9. A few little things: 1, turbo oil drain modification to use -an fittings 2, removal of factory oil modine, replace with remote oil cooler and thermostatic sandwich 3, oil temp sensor install - doesn't really need engine removal but while it's out it will be easier. 4, go buy and fit an SAS baffle plate I am still debating a closed deck ej25 short block or biting the bullet and going big with an ez30 but that would be a way off. I also need to get new synchros for my 6 spd but would like some longer ratios too as it doesn't see much track time. That will be the next priority. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  10. Cheers man! I'll get in touch. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks@joker ! Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  12. Did the pre-facelift include the internal oil pump that the early sti's have? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  13. Hi Guys, Anyone in Christchurch with an engine crane/hoist they could lend me for a weekend? I can pick-up/drop-off to wherever. A box of beer for the lender! Cheers,
  14. What is the theory behind sticking to one type of oil once you've used it once?
  15. We see ~18l/100km when towing on the open road at 90km/hr Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
