  1. Hey guys, Just a wee follow up on this issue. I had the car in at Subaru the other day for a recall and got them to check over it while it was there. They discovered that the vacuum line to the BCS was cracking so I will go ahead and replace this. Would someone be so kind to point me in the right direction for doing this... where to get vac line from, easiest method of removal and replacement etc. Thinking I will replace the MAF sensor at the same time. I got a price for one from Subaru the other day... lucky I wasn't sitting down or I would've fallen off my chair. $387+gst! So, advice on the best place to source these would be great too. Cheers, Graham.
  2. Evening Folks, Finally got around to logging some data. Here go the results. If any of the smart cookies out there want to have a look and potentially give me some insight into what may be going that would be awesome. Thanks to @Andy_Mac for your help as per usual 👍
  3. Hey Andy, Nothing out of the ordinary of late. Only thing I have done is after the fact which was to clean the EBCS and the MAF. I will try and get these logged tomorrow after work and report back. Cheers!
  4. Thanks to you both for the speedy replies guys. I haven't checked out the inlet as of yet but will try and do that this coming weekend. Am I needing to take the intercooler off to get a good look at that, do you think? Even with that bit of knock showing, my IAM has never dropped below 1.000 though. The Fuel Correction side of things hasn't really strayed outside of +/-2% in any of the ranges either. There was a +5 in the 1st and +4 in the 2nd range at different times over the last couple of weeks but it has since gone back to being relatively normal I would say so no real signs of a leak anywhere.
  5. Hey all, I've searched far and wide to find an answer for this with no luck so here goes. Over the last few weeks my Legacy, ('04 Twinscroll Manual) has been showing an increase in boost on the gauge when usually it would be showing little to none. At a guess it is reading 3-5psi higher than usual. This is happening under very low throttle input (15-20%) and very little load. It seems to be normal at higher throttle inputs, although, I have been rather nervous to give it the jandal so am unsure exactly how it's performing at full throttle. I have been taking the odd Learning View reading over the time of noticing it and have also noticed that there is some higher knock readings (-2.10/2.45) creeping in too, mostly in the 1.15-1.49 g/rev ranges and at 2700-4299 RPM. I have the ability to log to try and figure out what may be going on but am unsure of what exactly I would need to be logging. If someone could point me in the right direction for a start, that would be much appreciated. Cheers!
  6. Hey all, I'm in the process of trying to get steering wheel controls working with an aftermarket head unit in my 2004 Legacy. It just so happens that mum and dads Legacy has the exact setup that I want so I flogged the wheel out of it and checked that cruise control and the audio controls would work before buying the gear myself for the retrofit. Cruise control works an absolute treat so will definitely be doing that either way but I just cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to get the audio controls working. I've done so much research which led me to a purple/white and an orange/white wire under the steering column to connect to the plug that came with my head unit. Neither of those wires have been run in my car but the wires that are opposite them in the plug leading from the steering wheel are there so I have tapped into them with no luck though. They are a green/red and a white wire which I have led to input 1 and the ground wire of the steering remote cable for the headunit. Ok, time to stop rambling now. Hopefully that makes sense to someone out there who can point me in the right direction. As always, any help would be greatly appreciated.
  7. For those of you who haven't seen it yet... You're welcome.
  8. Thread reboot time! This stuff proving to be up to it? I opted for some RAT Mat from an outfit in Geraldine thinking it was reasonably priced, looked pretty decent stuff and is also only a day courier away (to Dunedin)... that was a week and a half ago and still no sign of it. Finally managed to get an answer out of them today as to what the go is saying it'll be 3 weeks away and I can either wait or get a refund. Has anyone here actually used the stuff? I really just want to know if it'll be worth the wait more than anything or do I go the Trademe route? Just can't justify the price of Dynamat, I'm afraid. Any input, as always, is appreciated.
  9. Interested in hearing what has come of the situation... any updates?
  10. No worries Dean. I can't remember exactly what it cost me in the end (was awhile ago now) but was somewhere in the vicinity of $500 for both. As far as tuning of the autos is concerned I'm not sure as mine is a manual but there are obviously still good gains to be made, even without extras... (but better gains with). It may be worth having a yarn to @Invisible as he's been through all of this with his auto. If you feel like a bit of light reading, have a squizz here... May be worth asking a question there too.
  11. Hey there, I really can't offer a whole lot of advice but I can say where NOT to go and that's APET here in Dunedin. Unless you want an undrivable bit of shite that chews through petrol like it's going out of fashion (even though they claimed it would be more economical) and is really only tuned for all out power, then I would steer well clear. After learning the hard way I ended up buying a Tactrix cable and getting an E-tune done via Dave at Cryotune, which I think is an awesome way of doing things if you want to learn a little yourself and nets you some great results too. I'm sure there'll be others that will back me up on that too. It seems that one of your only local options would be Rapid Performance in Timaru, which I know nothing about but have heard good things about and going off their FB page they look like they know what they're up to. Hope this helps but hopefully some of the more knowledgeable will pipe up and offer some advice. Good luck!
  12. Does seem very weird to me too mate... this all has me fairly puzzled. I've been testing the main wire and grounds via this guide here... Thanks heaps for the offer too Andy, you're a champion. I will get someone to have a closer, more in depth look at it this week sometime hopefully and let you know if I will need it or not.
  13. Kia ora guys, (seems fitting seeing it's Waitangi day) Updates on the issue... Took it into a local audio installer that I deal with and he said he would've done exactly what I have done so far to check for issues and couldn't really shed anymore light on the situation. Have checked that power antenna is getting 12v, which it is. Have checked resistance on all grounds and adaptors, they are all fine too. Checked resistance on the coaxial cable running from the head unit right to the power antenna and found that there is about an 8ohm resistance in this cable which, to me, means that there is a breakdown somewhere along the line, as it should be close to 0. Reading that the rubber boot between the cabin and the tailgate can sometimes be a breaking point I checked this out and the readings were fine there. Which means that the cable between the back of the cabin, along the headliner and into the back of the headunit is bung somewhere along the way, does it not? So now that I roughly know what the issue is, what would people's suggestions be that I do? Can these coaxial cables be repaired or do they need replaced? As always, any input would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Can't, for the life of me figure out what is causing the issue guys, so I'm leaving it to the professionals. Will report back once I get it all sorted.
  15. Hey guys, Going to be requiring a Cert fairly soon and wondering where people go/recommend here in Dunaz? Cheers!
