  1. Frankly though, there are too many variables, and It would definitely be difficult getting their tuners to repair or replace a motor after blowing it up. Especially if they did not build that motor themselves or know the complete history of the vehicle. The vehicle was was originally fit for purpose, so a dyno tune is to make it more reliable? but if you are adding more timing, more fuel and more boost it has deviated from its original purpose and specification. This dyno tune was not intended to repair or fix a faulty vehicle. I'd just add that Soichi at ST-Hitec hated tuning cars built at other workshops, again because he didn't build it. He hated getting blamed when cars came unprepared or failed, because of poor workmanship or conditions. My own car was road-tuned, and then serviced and checked all over. before going on the dyno. In the end we only needed 2hours dyno time.
  2. I wouldn't try to tune a stock vehicle, and that is the risk of dyno tuning. If they built your motor and setup, and they then blow it up it is a different story. Consumer Guarantees Act covers new products, and I am pretty sure that trying to modify a stock vehicle from standard would void it.
  3. Here is my footage from FlatNats 2019 at Meremere. It was a quiet turn out, but we still made our own fun. Thanks to FlatNats for putting on the event. Thanks to Mattchanics for looking after our cars.
  4. Hi All, I want some advice on installing a GD8 quick steering rack into a BD5 Legacy? I would like to know if it's a direct bolt in or we need to cut and shut steering knuckles etc
  5. Thanks for that, I was watching a few reviews, and they said something similar.
  6. Thanks, I've ordered the transmission mount. I will like to see how it goes.
  7. Hi All, I am considering purchasing this STI GROUP N reinforced transmission mount for my BD5 Legacy with a bugeye V7 STI 6speed gearbox. Does anyone here have any experience with this mount? My car is a street car 90% of the time. I have been looking on youtube for feedbacks and reviews - but the increased noise or vibration is not obvious, and I haven't been in a car with it before. This is the solid GROUP N transmission mount. I will probably not buy this one but it's for reference. Also, I am looking for short shifter kit recommendations. I am leaning towards the GFB short shifter kit - 4003
  8. You can send it to Mattchanics if you like. They build Subaru engines all day.
  9. If your trying to sell anything, I would expect photos and specific product condition as a minimum. There are many options, such as flickr, trademe or facebook marketplace. Also you should move the post to here: You can put EOI - Expression of Interest
  10. No one comes to mind that is Central. Frankly, you can take it anywhere if it is a basic service. Try to get a place with a courtesy car.
  11. 250kw ATW is not within the threshold. It is over a 50% increase on the original factory power output. I needed a certification for my BD5 Legacy TT when Mattchanics converted it to Single Turbo.
  12. Sure. I am on windows PC. This is my album: I click on this album image and the share icon: Err its working now...when I just paste the link into the text. But the insert other media is still not working.
  13. Hi All, I normally use flickr in my garage thread, and I paste a link into "Insert other media" - "Insert image from URL" Now when I paste the link and insert into post it just glows red and nothing else happens. Any ideas?
  14. I have been told bearings usually first, then rods.
