  1. Can confirm both compression ratios are the same. Some say the X has a forged crank and rods but i personally haven’t seen that. As for turbo swaps plenty have been swapped but personally id re flash it anyways as the stock maps arent great as they are. Mine has been re flashed and it makes a massive difference even with very very minor mods.
  2. One of my rears is noisy too. Rumbles and increases with speed but it has no play what so ever. And its 100% not diff or gearbox noise as they have been changed and the noise still remains. Seems common on these cars to be noisy and not actually move though.
  3. Hi guys putting up my rear mufflers for an EOI as im unsure if i want to change them at this stage. Fugitsobu Wagolis sedan edition rear mufflers. These were designed to give the owner a nice notable sound difference over stock while still being a VERY suitable street muffler. These things honestly sound wicked they have the most unique sound ive heard for an EL header subaru. Literally everyone that hears it comments on how good it sounds! Have a nice deep idle and very nice deep tone with light to medium acceleration but once you get on it it has a nice bark! They also look great too! In VERY good condition with little to no damage at all and with a pollish they look great too! Prefer the sound and look of these over the worshiped “STi Genome” mufflers also! Price is $550 or swap for something that may be slightly louder!
  4. Im not sure about the alloy arms part aye. I have an 05 GT and it had bilsteins optioned and also had alloy arms factory aswell. My old 03 had alloy arms aswell and a few that have come through the subie doo spares yard that arent spec b have had alloy arms fitted. Surely you cant tell me someone wanted alloy arms on it that badly that they swapped not just the fronts but the upper rear arm aswell?
  5. Car : 05 BL5 GT Legacy Tuned : Basic re flash for down pipe and air filter (still retains speed limiter) Fuel : Gull Force 10 Tank: ~60L ish Fuel economy : 7.6L/100kmish long trips 11L/100kmish town drving Fuelly stats if known : 12.7km/l normal long trip have seen up to 13.4km/l nan driving and usually around 9km/l town driving. Averages 600km per tank town and city driving from full to the last 1/8th of the tank before the fuel light comes on(dont like running it lower).
  6. If your not wanting to go extremely low i have a set of yellowspeed coil overs which id recomend, for the money they are actually REALLY comfortable and not bouncy at all! Infact id probably go as far as saying they are less harsh then bilsteins but firmer. Id definitely buy them again which suprised even me who used to run fortune auto in previous cars
  7. Yup mine was exactly the same as that one!
  8. Hey guys recently installed an S402 STi wing on our legacy and im trying to find a part number for the small decal on the wing itself? Ive looked everywhere on the interwebs and can barely even find a picture of said decal! I know the wing had one because i had to sand the original off while getting the wing painted! Any help would be appreciated!
  9. Hmm i wonder how i can get around this then? I cant delete abs since thats how the ecu see’s speed input, i wonder if the ecu can be coded to only use the front hubs as speed sensors and have only front abs? Another option is a custom r200 skyline/silvia conversion in the rear but thats custob drive shaft and axles (depending if i used the original arms). There must be some way surely that i can have some stronger rear axles! Id say even if i went to custom rear axles to suit the rear r160 hubs the thickness of the outer cv spline itself would limit its strength. Coming from a background of hondas, anything b series and NON 98 spec all cvs (outers) are a 32mm hub nut classed as small spline and then the 98 spec ones were 36mm. Even after market 32mm ones have been broken but never seemed to brake the 36mm. So guessing having ALOT more torque in the baru they wouldnt last long!
  10. Hi all been toying with some out-of-it ideas in my head for the long term plan of my legacy. Im planning on trying to make a bit of an STi cross legacy haha. Plans are eventually to score a full GRB engine (hopefully with a run bearing so i can use a brand new V7 short block) and slap it in the LGT. I want to retain the factory dual AVCS but have the option of more head parts available (cams ect ect). Also the intake manifold since it uses the drive by wire throttle already and flip the intake. Also would naturally convert to 6 speed (fuuu 5 speeds!). But heres were it will get a little more interesting, i would like to convert the 6 speed to full time RWD using a watanabe services spool from RHD japan. This is all simple enough BUT as im sure most are aware, even though the factory 6mt rear end for the LGT uses the bigger R180 rear diff, your still left stuck with the very average r160 hubs and outer CV’s. My question is, since the GRB has a multilink rear suspension set up, like the LGT. Can the GRB rear subframe (or even rear hubs only) be swapped in to have the beefier axles ect? I feel this is a pretty out there question and may not happen for a couple years (new house life), but id be really keen to give this a go! Ive always wanted to try drifting haha but hate nissan and toyota tax. Any sugestions/info would be wicked!
  11. My legacy has a subtech down pipe and FGK Super Legalis R rear mufflers with stock mid section and if im honest its not overly loud at all. Has a nice exhaust tone. The only time its loud-ish is when your up it or cold start. Otherwise i think its pretty quiet. The gains alone from just a down pipe rear mufflers and a high flow panel filter are HUGE over my other stock one. The turbo spools around 800rpm earlier (1.1 bar boost by 2400rpm) compared to the stock one on the same boost. It also gets (close to if not more than) 200km per tank of fuel over the stock one!
  12. Sorry if this is another boob question but if i plan to do some track days what caster angle should i be aiming for? As obviously the spec c has more then a normal V7/8 STi so must help a fair bit?
