  1. Awesome, cheers guys. My tuner has an intercooler off a v8 STI so good on that front. i think i saw a few cheap GG wrx v8 cylinders on trademe so will jump on one of those.
  2. Awesome, thanks very much. Regarding the clutch cylinder, does it have to be V7 STI? or would any GD/GG one work?
  3. Hey guys, have had a bit of a look through the forum but a lot of old links no longer accessible. Has anyone got a good link or writeup for fitting a v7 STI top mount into a bc5/gc8? I've convered my RS manifold to v3/4 and am currently running an ARC top mount but looking to make the most out of my future tune (link G4, injectors etc) without going front mount. I'm looking for instructions where it uses the later model clutch reservoir as i would rather replace with a new unit than take a grinder to the existing set up. Cheers
  4. Will need to confirm with the guy doing the tune - i'll get him to point it out on the hoist once i pick up the car. If the redlines are alright i might go with that option then - my understanding was the fitment of the redline gear was usually not worth the hassle. Cheers for the response though.
  5. Hi guys, Probably a FAQ but couldnt find anything directly useful - getting my RS back from the shop today with a run in tune but been advised that there is a leak by the uppipe (factory uppipe). Been recommended that this is remedied prior to full tune - what are the affordable aftermarket recommendations? I know redline do one but have heard mixed thoughts - not keen to burn grimspeed etc type $$ on a factory location uppipe so wondering what my other options are and where to look? Google just keeps spitting out redline. Cheers
  6. +1 just read it myself. Definitely backed up what my tuner was saying as well.
  7. Hi guys In the process of installing a new ej207 into my RS and theres a few bolts im missing to get it all together - namely the bolts that go with the oil cooler as they block is slightly different from my old ej20g. alternatively if anyone is wrecking an ej207..... Any advice on where to go about finding this sort of stock? Aware that Partsouq is an option but the sooner i can get this stuff the better. Cheers
  8. Dropped RS in today to fix noisy tappets/lifters. While engine is out, upgrading to vf30, hyperflow topmount, 850cc injectors and link install (after sitting in my room for 1 and a half years). When in Rome i guess...🙄
  9. Awesome, thanks mate. will update my to-do list.
  10. Do you need brand new? Second hand sets show up on trade me and facebook etc all the time - https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/subaru/engines/listing-1940788646.htm?rsqid=0fa015542855424290915ef1a7c15363 for example. You just need phase 1 injectors (like the ones in the auction) as the phase2s wont fit. I *thnk* you can tell em apart quickly as phase 1s have single holes whereas phase 2s have 4 holes in the injector.
  11. Havent measured up yet - calipers arent actually on the car though as im respraying them etc - based on your advice, might be easiest to just take one in and ask then?
  12. Wheres the best place to get banjo bolts for 2 pot rears? Guessing Wingers is my best bet? Cheers
  13. Hey guys, Looking at removing/replacing the oil filters for the avcs units in the heads on my daily (n/a ej204 sh*tta). Does anyone have any advice or a good guide on this? Also, if anyone knows what size copper o-rings that would be awesome as well. Cheers
