Sorry if this has already been a thread before,
but i recently got picked up an 07' Impreza S-GT, 2.0 Turbo 5 Speed. Excellent car and I'm having a blast driving it.
Anyway, the car has just under 170000 k's and I believe it's time for me to do a service - oil, filter, etc.
What are some other things you guys generally do when servicing your turbo Subaru's? I was having a gander at servicing videos and the general service seemed to include cleaning the AFM, resetting the ECU, and top engine cleaning? I feel like some of it is a bit unnecessary but and pointers are greatly appreciated. I feel and oil and filter change would be sufficient enough?
I have a 1999 Legacy Rev B that has the auto EJ206 in it which I will be removing and manually converting (car is being painted by a friend to showcase to employers). I also plan to have something done with the engine at the same, but I'm not too sure on the route to take. I would like the end result to be single turbo with pretty much standard performance as it will be my daily driver, but I can't decide on either rebuilding the current engine or swapping in an engine from a Forester. If I were to get a Forester engine I would give it a refresh but not to headgaskets.
I am leaning more towards keeping the current engine but it's done 230k and I'm not sure about the open deck design. Will it be easier to single turbo convert with a Forester engine or will it be easier to keep the current engine?
08’ Impreza 2.0R manual, 214xxx k’s.
I have had the car for about a week and I’ve noticed when driving it that the car has a slow/flat/sluggish spot around 2000 until 2500 rpm where it struggles to accelerate. The revs kind of fluctuate up and down around and it slowly climbs until it hits around 3k rpm and it accelerates fine. Some days are worse than others, sometimes it happens, sometimes it does not.
My first guesses are are spark plugs and leads or something wrong where it’s starving it from fuel? Maybe a fuel pump or the likes of.
Any ideas?? Thanks guys.
