  1. I was just wondering if anyone had has previous experience with swapping a different series primary turbo onto a BE/BH legacy, I have one with a blown primary and have a pile of BG primarys here (VF18, VF20) just wondering if the ecu would notice any difference? It seems to me that it shouldn\'t make any difference other than saving me some $$$ with not having to buy a turbo.
  2. I\'d say failing wheel bearing or if fitted the VDC could be playing up.
  3. would work out cheaper finding a wreckers with a near new crashed one and buying the seats, Expect to pay $1000+ per seat to get it done properly using good quality materials.

    Door skin question.

    New door panel unfortunately, the foam under the outer covering has crumbled and the covering stretched.
  5. You can use a wrx or forester ecu but requires changing plugs and splicing the looms together.
  6. I had the same issue with my old ace, i just pulled the master cylinder off and went looking at bnt for a suitable larger replacement, fixed it perfectly, the standard cylinder just can\'t move enough fluid to supply the larger wheel cylinders. Can\'t remember what the one i got was off, i think it may have been a mazda one, had to bend one of the lines to get it to fit but worked otherwise.
  7. Find a vacuum hose that enters by the throttle body and spray down it into the manifold, being a dbw car you need 2 people, one to spray the cleaner and one to hold the accelerator down a little so it doesn\'t stall.
  8. I\'m currently in the process of doing the exact same thing, EJ15 with forged bottom end and a bp twin scroll turbo, if you can do everything yourself it is manageable but if it\'s something you have not done before it just won\'t work. You will most likely end up spending lots of money and then end up selling the car and the parts for less than what the car is currently worth.

    AFM's

    Beofre you commit to buying new in NZ get the part number and check www.partsouq.com It\'s where i get all my genuine parts at significantly less than trade price here. Just out of interest if you check it let me know what the price comes back as, it will be in USD and add about $25 for freight (will take less than 1 week).
  10. Front mount with the new high tech wireless pipe system ;D
  11. http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.Xej208+timing+belt&_nkw=ej208+timing+belt&_sacat=0&_from=R40 Just get a kit off ebay. Cheap and easy, No need to use genuine parts, aftermarket manufacturers are the ones that make the original belts for subaru.
  12. Yes no difference in screen trim between models
  13. Too much nolothane transfers all road noise and vibration through the car, The best option is to check what is worn and replace with new rubber. Generally new sway bar mounts and end links makes a decent difference. I can source genuine at pretty good (better than NZ trade) prices if required.

    Monsoon removal

    Go to a panel beater supply shop, They sell either a rotary wheel that fits in a drill to remove adhesive or an aerosol that removes it, either one will work, they just vary in price a bit depending on brands/supplier.
