  1. Front wheels were swapped to the back when I took it for my mechanic to look at. Problem still persisted after that.
  2. Hmm thanks for that. Never knew spigot rings were a thing until you mentioned that.
  3. Not sure if this is just entirely coincidental buuuut My front bumper is currently unhinging itself on the right hand side (getting fixed this week) Of course I slap it back in but never know when it pops out again until i've hopped out of the car. So I unhinged it purposely just then, went for a 10 minute drive and while the car wasn't so bad, it still had the wobbles at about 105-110kmh. So I slapped the bumper back in, tapped it down firmly and went for another drive. The car was a lot better and there was hardly any shaking/wobbling. But surely a slightly unhinged bumper wouldn't be a prime cause of this?? Or is it enough to sort of hook enough air when driving at speeds and throw the cars balance out?
  4. Havent had an alignment since I’ve had my SSR’s on my car. Hit a huge pothole in them and bent the rim and wrecked my tyre so I had that all fixed. Possibly could be that the wheel isn’t 100% since the repair? The issue is it was so long ago and I’m not sure when the all this wobbling started happening since I wasn’t doing a huge amount of open road driving to notice it.. Alright first step will be a wheel alignment.
  5. Finding my S-GT has developed a sort of shake/wobble in the wheel when going around 105-115kmh. Have had my wheels balanced a couple times and they checked out all good. My mechanic had a real quick check over, rotated the wheels, didn’t find any play in the steering rack to justify shaking/wobbling. Also added a very small weight to one of the wheels. While this helped, the problem still persists. It’s quite inconsistent too. Mostly of the time it will do it, sometimes it won’t. Has me stumped as to what it may be. Any ideas?
  6. Sort of asking on behalf of a mate here. Took his 09 S-GT Impreza for a drive, third gear pull and the car is boosting to about 4-5psi over the factory boost of 14psi. Then i'm assuming the ECU hits a safety mode and cuts the fuel as it refuses to accelerate after a certain point. He said this has started happening randomly and never used to do it. Any quick ideas on what this may be?
  7. Car : 2007 Impreza S-GT Tuned: Stock tune (most likely running rich then) Fuel : NPD 100 Octane Fuel economy : 9.1km/L town driving. Open road uhhh.. Taking it from Invercargill > Nelson and back so will make a record hahah. 60L tank i think so easy 550km to a tank. Fuelly stats if known : Should maybe start using it aye
  8. Ah excellent! Yeah just landed from Japan this week so i'm sure he'll get round to scrubbing them up
  9. Aight bit of a silly question here but what are these? Brother just got this Legacy and said he couldn't find anything on google about them. They sit under both headlights and pull out. Some kind of headlight washer maybe??
  10. Exactly! and will be something new to learn
  11. One trademe wrecker has the air box for $120 and the duct for $50. Ffs lol. Just spent $340 on two new tyres. Ahhhh the joys of cars. An Aftermarket intake requires tuning right? Edit: Just spoke to friend of mine and he said I can have the factory stuff off his S-GT if I help him install his aftermarket intake. Sounds like a good deal to me
  12. Looking into just sourcing the whole intake assembly possibly. Although these fellas are all on trademe and we all know they want gold
  13. Clip that hold the the front piece of the airbox like in this pic https://gyazo.com/8114f0dfe3eb7f5cbd1bb7023efafc6d
  14. Yeah the filters held in by two screws at the top which isn’t all too flash. Unfortunately there’s no clips for the box.. If you’re okay with shipping I’d be happy to pay for it. May as well try it.
  15. I have the other (very filthy) part of the air box here
