So silly question.

Bought a 2005 Legacy station wagon, anyway when its all locked up if I try to open the driver side door it chirps at me. Is that normal?

Yep thats normal :) its the Keyless entry function!

Read more bout it here!

http://www.clubsub.org.nz/forum/index.php/topic,33.0.html thread re-rediected to new format here http://www.clubsub.org.nz/forum/index.php/topic,33.msg862.html#msg862

But yours is slightly different to program than what\'s posted on that thread! I\'ve done it to two 4th gen legacys but sorry can\'t remember the exact changes now!

Is the harmonic balancer meant to have a wee wobble to it? I know mine was replaced 2 years ago. Never noticed until my friend pointed it out. I think I\'m PSMing today..

no they shouldnt wobble!

either they can get a wobbly key way - which is a new crank sometimes, or the rubber holding the two halves together sometimes gets worn out.

its not a major major but worth having someone knowledgeable visually inspect at some point

Just test drove a WRX I was looking at buying. He said that it was running lower boost because he removed the restrictor pill and added a screamer which made it "better"

Is this retarded or no?

Sounds retarded to me. I wouldn\'t touch. Owner probably has thrashed it.

Well the last WRX I drove, was my own V2 STI about a year ago, which was very light with a massive turbo thrown in, I don\'t count the GTB as twin turbo and this is a standard WRX Wagon with 2 other passengers in it.

It was faster than a N/A I guess.

Ahhhhh. On the outside, it looks tidy for it\'s age... But the screamer + removal of boost pill seem odd. Did you get to drive it when it was cold? Service history?

He said he was a mechanic (don\'t they all) and sure, it understeers quite bad and breaking isn\'t what I remembered it to be, but I can\'t judge it as first WRX Wagooon.

The screamer is plumbed in (or something, couldn\'t hear anything horrendous) and I did not hear any knocking, engine was warm when I checked all the seals and belts, might need a front CV but that\'s it.

But I guess put Restrictor pill back in for safetys. He said he was at the waimak, but hey the car was dirty, surprised it hasn\'t sold so not sure if that\'s the current market or what. no rust from what I could see, but the restrictor pill was the main concern, I don\'t think he understands pressure.

Yeeeeeahp

Remember how much boost it was pulling?

He said 8, which I kinda laughed inside about. I thought 14.7 or something was the factory lol however I didn\'t really look at the lamco boost gauge off the steering wheel thing to check when I gave it some jandle. My friend who was with me said that he could smell oil from the back seats which I thought was quite odd as I didn\'t smell anything.

It sure as hell didn\'t throw me into the back of my seat though. (from memory it did, but hey I guess a Sedan WRX STI weighs less than a factory WRX Wagon)

It was what I would think a factory WRX would make. (feel like anyway) it just seems odd it hasn\'t sold yet. Are people struggling to sell there WRX\'s at the moment? Could be because xmas and what not though so financially not the best time.

May be running 8 if external.

I would agree with this. Stock boost is only 10psi for the wagon. I would know ;) No pants kick factor either.

haha, thanks all, fountain of knowledge.

If you\'re looking for that kinda factor, go for the sedans or a STi wagon. The non-sti wagon didn\'t get the goodies.

      Help me please Hi iv fitted a dump valve to my vectra c 19 cdti 150 bhp. The 1 I bought was a twinport or receculation valve I don't no just bought and had a go of fitting it my self.  On looking at the car I thought I needed to block the 2nd port so have done bought a t and fitted it on the main intake Of The top Of The intercooler to the inlet on to Of The head.  Ran the bleed pipe and td it in to the on top Of The intake now it's just realeasing through the revs rather than when I lift of it's not because I blocked the other port is it thanks
