  1. I put a catless bellmouth downpipe on my Impreza about 14 years ago. I guess I should get a tune before driving it =P

  3. Hey team, So I was just thinking, I'd like to try for a cert at some point this year, but I'd like to be as prepared as possible. I know there's a few here that have gone through the process, what are somethings that you should always check first, like the simple failures. Off the top of my head I can think of: Heat shielding/blanket around turbo. Driveshaft hoops? This one always gets me, unsure when they're required, and if it's in the front or rear half of the shaft? Brake lines secured Not looking for advice as such (I know, talk to your cert guy). But just little things that people have been picked up on that I could easily check before even going to the certifier. My mods for reference: Engine power increase to 300whp Aftermarket turbo Aftermarket ECU Automatic to 6sp manual swap Front and rear brake upgrade (To BL/BP larger rotors - 2/1 pot calipers) 17" wheels They're the main items I think. So off the top of my head I need to put a heat shield on the turbo, and secure the TMIC better, but can't think of other things? Not sure if Brake Bias would be affected with the larger brakes, and whether that'd be an issue.

  6. Would have been keen but the spec c has just had a PBMS downpipe installed and the first slot for a tune I could get is mid Feb (was booked for late Dec but no plan survives first contact with reality 🤦‍♂️)

  9. Link branded MAP sensor in the engine bay, and Link CAN-Lambda sensors. If I just cover them they'd not know. haha

  11. Yeah WOF failures are so hit and miss. I had an FTO that for ~5 years had no issue passing WOFs with the wheel/tyre combo it had, until one day it failed on being above the 5% tolerance on tyre size increases. It was about 5.2%. The same also goes for a 5 -> 6 speed manual swap as well. Aftermarket ECUs too area another good one that sometimes gets let through, sometimes not

  12. Interesting issue. They were available from factory for some 3rd gen Legacy’s also so finding proof of that may be enough to convince them to let you pass.

  13. If it's the valve seals it will also smoke when you come off throttle as as engine vacuum sucks oil past the seals. If there isn't any smoke, then either it's not the seals, or not enough of a problem to worry about it. When my turbo seals were going, there was visible oil in the rear housing, but thinking about it, it smoked continuously not just on start up. Also, it might just be nothing... the engine is horizontal so maybe oil is running off the sides of the cylinders and pooling at the bottom... and just gets burned off when you start it up. Probably best not to worry about it if it's not using a lot of oil and you don't have to top up all the time.

  15. Should be able to find what you need here for instructions, and here for Win 10 ISO to download. Follow your nose (and the instructions) and you should be able to sort it out pretty easily. All first party support here, so relatively straight forward and simple to get up and going.

  17. Internet seems to think the 8/9 tooth ones are interchangeable. 9 tooth was on the '01-> WRX and STI but they're hideously expensive. Legacy from about '05 on seems to have a 9 tooth as well but may be a completely different starter. Sorry I can't be much more help than that.

  18. I've always heard that you can swap out the brake pedal during a AT/MT swap, but as soon as you cut the auto pedal, you get a fail? Unsure if this is correct or not, but what I've always heard

  19. Three years to nearly the same day and the passenger side has now s*** the bed. I found this thread by chance through Google and was happy to find out it wasn't the same side breaking again!
