  2. Lowered it, new rubber and tinted the tailights.

  3. Hi I'm scared for you. Is the knock sensor saying there is knock, or is the ecu saying that the knock sensor is broken? Big difference and I think if the engine is knocking, then it will go into limp mode for sure at some level of knock. If that's true I doubt a wiring diagram is going to help.

  5. Haven't done much to it for a while but just got it back from fab, now has a front mount intercooler. This one is quite different from all the other BH/BE's I've had, I've ST swapped it using a vf30, 6 speed swap from a BL, brembos going on one day, eifel prova adjustable suspension, genuine work wheels and a blitzen bumper. Paint to come one day but new engine first. Sent from my SM-G991B using Tapatalk

  6. Thaaaats not true anymore. The Rev A-D are all tunable now. An Lal at custom culture and tuning tunes them. There's also the group out of the UK AFAIK that sell off the shelf tunes and equipment for em. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

  10. While the motor is out I've been busy cleaning wheel wells and the engine bay, and straightening up the sills at the 4 jack points. I have some new front fenders I bought from Tony years ago that I want to put on, but they need painting and I don't want to spend the money until the engine is sorted. Also have some tidier side skirts to go on and all new clips... but they also are the wrong colour

    Thanks for posting. The event info's now been updated check it out here https://www.facebook.com/events/345690580576956 We have 17 names on the track list already and 8 fully paid up. I'll keep taking names until we reach our paid up limit of 22 then take a standby list if we need to These Playday events run 4 groups of cars with each group able to take up to 22 cars. We've booked 1 x group for Subarus each group goes out on the track for around 15-20 mins before coming in to rest up the brakes then next group goes out. Assuming your car holds up you can expect to get 5-6 outings across the day. Believe me that's plenty of track time! For beginners there's usually a slower group Don't wana track your car? No prob just come along and hang out with the subie peeps for a catch up Any questions post up here or message the Flat Nats page directly https://www.facebook.com/flatnats

  12. Hindsight is a great thing. I put an offered a guy the 32k asking price on an R32 GTR 5 years ago. Then he decided not to sell it.

  13. Worth watching. These guys to some great videos, they go in depth into all sorts of tuning and stuff.

  14. I was thinking of a scenario where I trashed my wrx shell and was able to swap the running gear to a brz. Definitely dreaming on the 4wd thing though... probably on the engine too. It was a bad example really as they aren't even old. The 4wd version is awesome... incredibly fast in stock form, just with some decent tyres. I know nothing much about the fwd version. I tried really hard not to comment... 90k and he probably hasn't even cleaned it... I find it to be a bit insulting for some reason.

  15. Unfortunately or fortunately they aren't dreamers, its just a fact. These cars are now asking this money. In Australia a car like Nirans would be worth over 100k. If anything NZ is behind the times with values. Try importing a tidy one for less than 80k landed and on the road. No one wants to own a Ford and also the focus doesn't have the JDM factor.

  16. Maybe with a TT... single turbo wrx will spike from my experience... it's not by much and it's down low when the boost is just coming on, so plenty of excess fuel in the mixture.

  17. I had a decatted (2-2.5"?) zerosport dp on my legacy for a bit - didn't notice any boost spikes, in fact, didn't really notice much difference other than a bit more noise and carbon/soot/tar build up on the bumper above the exhaust. I've sure if it was tuned you could get more out of it Also if i recall correctly, the cat is only on the secondary turbo - the primary dp doesnt have one

  18. I was looking at the panel mount kit one with the lights. I just get all overkill stuff so I never have to buy twice. same reason I have the 1/2” Milwaukee impact driver. Though it is a fun toy on suspension bolts.

  20. I’ve got the 5.0 version It seems to be more than fast enough for how often I use it. I also got it with the rubber bumper case and the battery sense module which helps a bunch by notifying me when it's starting to get low.

  21. 10 will be a beast. We have a couple of 5's for things that don't get used often. As mentioned, they pull off some Lazarus-grade resurrection of batteries. I've got a battery that hasn't been used for 5 years on "Recon" now, will be interesting to see if it can get it usable again.

  22. Sweet, that'll be a beast. The 0.8A one my friend had was so slow, but worked so well, which is why I grabbed the 7A. The 10, should be nice and quick, and like you said, they still do the trickle functions too.

  23. They made the GC8 for marketing purposes and it was an huge success... decades later they are still clinging to it. But clearly there is money to be made making fat slow cars.

  25. It's like they are trying to hypnotise us... yes... I see it now... this whale is really a WRC car from the 90s. cool. I'll buy one. Why don't they just re-release the GC8? That's what everyone wants surely... and it will slap all the greedy 60k to 90k trademe f***wads in the face

  26. Lol I watched that too it was just shameful they basically gave us the history of how good the old Sti's were and then tried to say at the end that the new ones were better Lol they even added the suby rumble soundtrack to the new one, pretty sure they don't sound like that without huge modification Subaru are honestly clutching at straws these days, admittedly the 2020 STI is good but I really don't know what they were thinking with the 2022 models they look hideous and they themselves seem to struggle to find anything nice to say about it Video below is quite funny and accurate I thought https://youtu.be/QaDDNVVwvWY

  27. I 100% recommend the ctek battery chargers, I have their MXS7.0 it's super quick, and works well for recovering dead batteries too. A little expensive, but worth it for sure. It comes up for sale often, and I picked it up around the $200-300 range. They have smaller and much cheaper trickle chargers too, like the MXS0.8 https://www.repco.co.nz/en/globes-batteries-electrical/battery-chargers-jump-starters-leads/car-battery-chargers/ctek-battery-charger-12v-7amp-mxs7-0/p/A1226799?kwSearch=ctek

  28. Rev D is tunable, Revs A/B/C arent. Pretty sure the RevD switch over was early 2001. Your Fuji Heavy Industry tag in the engine way will say BH5* where * is A,B,C or D

  30. Hey guys first time poster here . I have acquired a 2003 bp5 legacy , the guy I got it off has done a heap of work himself changes some of the interior to new stuff , recond block heads and head gaskets done etc have some of the proof but most done by himself. The problems are cars in limp mode has thrown a few codes one being the knock sensor I'm sorting that but have been told that wont cause it to go into limp mode ? Main cause of concern is b0223 - can-hs vdc/abs no receive data and u1223- can-hs vdc/abs no receive data . Few things online and talking to people seem to think could be the abs computer they are common to fault with some wire in them , if anyone had the abs wiring diagram for a 2003 bp5 legacy that would be great

  34. Hey I want to lower my SH forester what is the easiest way to do this? Also what is the best turbo back exhaust to get installed? I currently have a catback exhaust installed that has a straight pipe, wondering if a turboback will be as loud and hopefully give the car more power. Thanks in advance

  36. I have a v5 Type R that I bought 6 years ago for 12k and thought I over paid. It's logical that people asking 60 to 90 k all of a sudden are going to be seen as price gouging. Take it personally if you want. Fact is, it's just sad that the good old days of being spoiled rotten with cheap imports is over.

  37. I've looked it up FYI. You can buy and sell up to 6 cars per year as a private owner / sale. Anything more would require a dealer license / business tax etc.

  38. Is this classic tall poppy syndrome and being jealous that someone may be able to make some money on a vehicle?? The comment is totally irrelevant, there is No such thing as profit tax on privately owned goods. Heck even buying and selling a house only had capital gains tax come in a few years ago. Until that point if you sold for more than you bought for then good for you.

  39. Oooooh interesting thread to stumble across haha. I literally look at the jap auction markets every day. Unfortunately the high prices stem from there. Often you can import a car for slightly less then nz market value, but then you bare the full risk of rust, compliance issues and cost snow balls. Anywho. Mine should be a good test of the NZ market! Lets see what happens. Turned down a concrete offer of $75k before my swap deal fell through. So will be interesting to see where we go. The realist in me will be happy with anything over $70k. Doesnt really matter that the value has gone up since my original purchase, as i'll be buying back into the same market!

  40. Bidding is around 60k on his currently... seems like a more reasonable amount, though it still kills me that they cost that much and I have to find a new favourite car. This is what I expect to see when people ask big bucks for an old and previously cheap car. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/toyota/corolla/listing/3270284093 Still high km, but someone has spent a lot of time restoring it... and it's not super expensive either.

  41. That guy's a dreamer. To be fair, so is @Niran and what he's selling is way tidier. But who knows, maybe someone spectacularly optimistic will pay asking. People mistaking immaculate, completely original, 25000km cars for their daily-driven, somewhat modified, obviously "used" 120000km+ cars.

  42. If the cars for sale were low km and look like they just rolled off the showroom floor, then sure that's worth big bucks. But nothing for sale in NZ is like that... they are high km, covered in dents, "restored" in a half hearted manner or not at all. Because the market was flooded and they have been so cheap, no one has looked after them or kept them stock.

  45. I turned down a real Subaru verified 22b at 70-90k about 10 years ago. Was cheap for back then too.
