  1. Definitely have to be single to do that!!! LOL good old days...
  2. Cheers!
  3. Hi guys, anyone knows what's the right valve clearance for the EJ20K heads? All the manuals I found were for US market... Also, does anyone have asorted shims? After I measure all the clearances I'll know which ones I need... Chees!
  4. Definitely my next project after I finish with the v3... and of course, I will post here first evowrx! LOL
  5. Hey folks, what are your thoughts around getting a VF28 with p20 housing to replace my stolen VF23 (these are hard to get!)?
  6. Thanks!!! Will read these ones...
  7. Hey folks, anyone has a newer re-flashable ecu running on an old engine? Any ideas of what would have to be done to make that work? Cheers!
  8. Started it here: http://clubsub.org.nz/forum/showthread.php?45858-Wrx-Sti-V3-Restoration-Project&p=577386#post577386 Cheers!
  9. Hey guys, Thanks for the tips! And sorry for such a looong delay in posting!! When I bought the car I knew that it was going to need some work done! After a few days found a huge leak on the oil cooler hose underneath and started to remove the radiator, cooling hoses, etc. Put new hoses in, replaced everything and started it back. After 2 min of letting it run, it didn't even reach operating temp smoke was comming off on the left side of the engine... short story: found oil traces in the coolant Then I thought, I'll take the engine off and do head gaskets and some other stuff while I'm there... water pump, tensioner, idlers, maybe even oil pump, re-seal the oil sump, most of the seals and gaskets that I could change there too. So last week, I managed to take the engine out and I have it sitting on the engine stand. Only had time to take the exhaust and the timing belt covers so far... Will upload some pics tomorrow! Any recommended place in Auckland to take the heads for strength testing and skimming? Cheers!
  10. Hi guys, anyone has the fsm for a 1997 Version III WRX STI??? I could only find the ones for the US model... Cheers!
  11. Hi guys, I've got a 97 wrx sti with an EJ20K that has a blown head gasket. I will be taking the engine off and I was wondering what else would be good to do while I'm at it, since I'm taking it off anyway... Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  12. I always ask for a catalog of parts and the part number but they never give it away... However, I was able to find this page which has a pretty comprehensive part numbers catalog (with diagrams): http://jp-carparts.com/subaru/carlist.php?maker=subaru Haven't bought anything from these guys since they haven't replied my inquiries but their catalog is a great tool!
