I didn't know there was a post-2002 Blitzen. Unless someone can come up with some evidence to the contrary, I suspect it's a Legacy (probably one of the non-standard versions) that someone has added a Blitzen badge to. Anything 2005 will be factory single turbo.

 

EDIT: Well, some further research suggests that there was indeed a Blitzen up through at least 2005.

The original Blitzen was in the BE/BH shape, which ended in 2003. These were the last of the twin turbo cars; this generation of Blitzen was indeed a collaboration between Subaru and Porsche Design and got a few little extras, mostly just the bodykit and some rims though.

 

I've done a bit of hunting around this morning and it looks like they did a Blitzen in the BL/BP shape which started in 2004. These cars are all single turbo from the factory, this is what your car will be. Same deal, bodykit and rims and in theory it should be bright red.

Drivetrain is no different to any other GT of the same era (4th gen BL/BP 06/2003 - 06/2008) - i.e a single turbo. Porsche Design were involved with the exterior, again nothing to do with the drivetrain. Post some pics for us. 

 

Some JDM catalogue goodness

I have a sneaking suspicion there was also an H6 Blitzen in the BP/BL shape. I suspect this, as I am sure Ichiban had one in Wellington for a while.

Split & created your own 05 Blitzen thread in the Legacy Section (some good info here) as I dont think we've seen some of these on the forums before (new model buyers are slow to catch on / Facebook clubs seem to be 'winning')

 

again welcome to the forums & thanks for your contribution! Your $$ help keep this place alive & information like this available hopefully for years to come!

      Bought these off Trademe, seller claimed they are for BP Legacy models. Tried them on, they didn't exactly fit.
      I've searched online and the closest I could get to comparing these with are BE/BH Legacy floor mats.
      Can anyone confirm which model Legacy these mats are for?

      If anyone want's them, they're yours for $20.

      So I bought a 2006 Subaru Legacy Wagon that had minor outer panel damage to both doors on the passenger side. Randomly found a dude scrapping a car of the same model and colour, but Few years newer and higher spec than mine and managed to change the doors over myself.
       
      However, after I changed the doors and fired up the audio system for the first time (stock audio system in Subaru), I discovered the speakers just in the replaced doors don't work at all. I definitely correctly connected the speakers back up before I replaced the door panels. Audio system in the wrecked car was a Macintosh. I also bought the speakers from the guy and tried those and they don't work either. I'm assured that the speakers worked fine in the old car before it was wrecked.  

      Anyone know any simple reason for the speakers in the replacement doors not working? Would the wiring be different from one year to the next of the same model car and therefore not be compatible with my audio system? Cheap and easy fix for an auto electrician or na?   

      Thanks for any help in advance.

      Hi all,
       
      Over from the UKLegacy forums as I know quite a lot of you kiwis and aussies and have the tt leggys too! Was wondering if someone can shed some light on an issue im having.
       
      Car has been running like sh1t- poor fuel economy, lumpy acceleration, lumpy on idle when started from hot, struggles to stay alive as the revs want to drop.
       
      Plugged in SSM cable and front o2 sensor voltage was reading 0.000v. Cleaned the plug... still nothing. Replaced the sensor with a bosch universal 3 wire and its still showing 0.000v. Jumps to about .02v for a split second when the throttle is pressed but instantly drops back to 0v. 
       
      When I test the black signal wire at the plug where the sensor joins the loom, there is 0.45v at idle (this is about right as this would suggest a normal AFR). This suggests the sensor is working and reading accurately. At the ecu however, the voltage is different. 
       
      Service manual says that at the ecu plug, the o2 should see between 2.3-2.8v (iirc) . At the ecu pin, mine showed 0.80v with the car idling and o2 sensor unplugged. When plugged in, it jumped to 1.1v but fluctuated massively (down to about 0.6v when revved in neutral and back up to 1+ but never as high as 2v+. 
       
      I tested the pins on the loom-side plug on the car to see if they were getting power. The heater wire pin was easy to identify as it was getting a solid 12v. The other white was the ground but was still getting like 0.5v. The signal wire itself was also getting about 0.38v which I found a bit strange but I dont understand enough about auto electrics to make sense of it. 
       
      I tried bypassing the entire wiring to see if it was a wiring fault but didnt make much headway. I ran pins from all 3 ports on the o2 sensor plug. The heating elements went straight to the battery positive and negative terminals to simulate the 12v and the ground. The signal wire was ran directly from the 02 plug inside the car and alligator clipped to a paperclip jammed in the back of the 02 signal wire at the ecu. On ssm it showed a constant .330v (usually what a broken o2 will show). It would not move despite revving the car and stank of fuel due to it telling the car its  was running a lean mix. 
       
      Took it to a garage today and the lad was adamant that I should start with an oem sensor as universal ones are bad for subarus apparently. They dont agree with universal sensors etc. This wouldn't be an issue but the oem sensors are like £180/$250+ and im a student lol. Is there anything else I can try before buying one? 
       
      This is the second universal bosch o2 inside 8 months, this is the reason Im worried it isnt the actual fault of the sensor. Im fairly confident there is something else weird going on with the ecu/wiring.
       
      Any help is much appreciated, thank you troops
