  1. Today
  2. You want 38 minimum not to run narrow tyres There are +45 9.5 but rare as
  3. That'll have a heap of poke. You'd have to run a pretty narrow stretched tyre or maybe heaps of camber to not rub everywhere. I'm running 18x9.5 +35 with 255/35/18. You don't want to go much further out than that unless you want to get serious with tight fitment mods.
  4. Got my first car I want to mod about a month ago being a 2010 Wrx Sti hatchback and I'm looking at replacing the wheels since they're badly curbed. Looking at these specific wheels which are 18/9.5/18 offset. Not sure if they'd fit well or how the width and offset compare to the stock wheels as I've never bought aftermarket wheels before. Cheers
  5. Actually, you "flushed the engine"... Howso? Just dumped the oil or ran some sort of product in the oil first?
  6. Unless its over filled and has crank slap Don't laugh seen a few honda guys do it
  7. Yesterday
  8. what does your boost gauge say?
  9. You are thinking way too much.
  10. hey guys back again. Got a legacy 2l turbo 2004. So basically i ran 10w40 semi and just today i flushed the engine and put in 5w40 full synth. It doesnt seem like it boosts as hard anymore. Is this an issue or am I just thinking too much?

    Oil?

    The fully synthetic one, you wouldn't want to use a mineral oil on something like this. Hpr5 would be fine, as it uses what penrite call "extra 10" so it should behave like a 5w30. And it's on sale at the moment at repco iirc.

    Oil?

    on your wrx do you use 10w40 semi or full synthetic? I was looking to get the penrite 5w40 full sythn hpr5.

    Oil?

    I would, i've had two BP legacies, one N/A one that had 270k and my current turbo one has 240k, and both are run on 5w30 (Fuchs Flex 23 to be precise). However my WRX which has only 220k on it runs 10w40 (Penrite HPR10) HOWEVER this is a general recommendation. Thats because it depends on how worn certain parts of your particular engine are that were caused by many factors from before you even owned it. Thats why i've ended up using two different grades for essentially the same engine on my cars. If you do try the recommended 5w30 it would be worth checking the oil level regularly (say every fuel fill for a few weeks, and then maybe once a week if everything seems fine). If you notice the engine consuming oil, then it would probably be better going back to the thicker grade next oil change, but if you see no change after 5000k or so then you should be fine to continue checking the oil as you would normally, And then you can continue on using a oil that would allow your engine to work more efficiently.

    Oil?

    Oil?

    K’s are getting up there but not high enough to really worry just yet. Fully synthetic is the usual recommendation for these. Castrol Edge 5w-30 or 5w-40 are what I've always used.

    Oil?

    I have a BP5 2.0L Turbo AUTO and run 5W30. Castrol Edge Synthetic 5W30 to be exact.

    Oil?

    I have a legacy bp5 2l turbo manual. Was wondering what oil everyone uses and which one I should use. I'm currently using penrite 10w40 semi synthetic. My has around 200000kms.

    Hi, I'm wondering if someone can help me out with the engine coolant temp sensor, I'm just wondering where the three wires go?
  21. Hi all. I have a JDM 2007 Legacy with the radar cruise control (SI-cruise). Has anyone found a way to disable the beeps it makes when it locks onto and subsequently loses lock on the vehicle in front? The feature is great but that beeping just puts me right off. I believe this can be done with the eyesight models but the same instructions didn't work for mine.
  22. Strange as my hong kong shipments have been in NZ in a couple of days. Still not as good as Apple's 48 hours during level 2
  23. I have one delayed an extra week in Hong Kong from Partsouq, still worth the wait after the price i was given from Subaru NZ. seems to be world is still falling apart outside our borders
  24. Thanks Boon, water was alarmingly high to the point you mentioned. There was no convenient place to stop or find higher ground at the time :P
  25. Just pay the $20 or whatever and get an olive fitting hose end thingymabob so your factory line ends in a -6AN fitting. https://speedflow.com.au/an-male-to-tube-adapter-from/ as an expensive example, 5/16 to -6AN (assuming factory is indeed 5/16) Better than springing a fuel leak somewhere down the road.
  26. Can anyone please confirm if -6an fuel line will clamp directly on to the factory fuel filter???? A lot of aftermarket kits have -6 line with a hose finisher to clamp to the factory fuel filter but I want to be totally sure as it seems a bit big since the factory fuel lines are -5an.
