  1. Well, this has to be potentially one of the most frustrating weekends I've had with Subarus in a VERY long time. warning. LONG read. tl;dr LOTS of things don't go my way. Things broke that shouldn't have broke. I consider insurance fraud. I fixed it after putting in WAY too many stressful hours. I'm definitely not selling it now because it owes me WAY too much money. Also, @SAS Richard, thank you for the help on identifying the issue from over 1200km away Man knows so much about Subarus it's not funny. Kinda is, comical but guru
  2. Honestly, there's a huge variance in things to buy. As far as it goes for getting a legacy with the McIntosh stereo systems, they're dated and likely just going to get ripped out anyway. Like the one in my legacy which is completely stuffed. But what can you expect for a 20yr old car. So don't let this be a selling point because the likelihood is it's trash or soon going to be. Personally the late model (07) BP5 Legacys are really nice cars. They've got nice interior etc and really are the end of where the legacys felt like a 'drivers' car. To be fair, they never reall
  3. Got all the gaskets for the legacy engine. Plus others which I saw were being sold and had low quantity so bought them anyway. Because reasons. I'm really gonna be glad to get this legacy going again. It's been far too long.
  4. If you ever want to swap your S203 for a really modified Type RA with over 300kw, let me know
  5. That's a big yikes. That sorta balancing time is $$$
  6. Just a nice photo from beginning of this year at Leadfoot
  7. That looks gorgeous! Really nice and tidy BH Also, shameless plug for anyone reading. Theres a one day sale for anything Link related. can do up to 30% off and taking pre-orders until Thursday. Sale day is Friday. Cash preferable. But I wanna hook up the clubbies and best as I can. Let me know if you want Link gear or ECUs. because, basically... the Storm G4x goes from $1950+gst to under $1350+gst.... Good deals to be had y'all. Over the weekend, I pulled the engine out of my Legacy.... Because blown headgasket. yaaaaaaaaaaaaay... It's sah dirteh
  8. Also, a side note to the above. As much as I wish to support local businesses (subaru NZ or a dealership), their pricing is absolutely pathetic and makes it economically unviable to even do headgaskets for an engine in a older or stock car. For example, at a discounted price, I was quoted just over $960 Want an example of price differences. 11044AA483 (headgasket) - NZ: $109.71ea Partsouq: $43.08ea 806933010 (o-ring) - NZ: $5.45ea Partsouq: $1.59ea 13293AA051 (Spark plug seal) - NZ: $13.41ea Partsouq:
  9. Well, I placed my largest order off partsouq to date so far. Ordered just over 82 individual gaskets. Some for the RA with it's upcoming sleeved 2.35L build, but mostly for the legacy which has decided to blow a headgasket unfortunately.
  10. Saturday, Well, engine came back out! Fixed the misaligned clutch. Put the oil drain on, with heat shielding. Deleted the GDB clutch bleed setup in favour of single braided line. Got that around the wrong way. Fixed that. Engine in, wastegates off to check spring pressures. Now both have 7psi springs. Flumbled around trying to figure out how to get it all to fit in there. Turns out, turbo on first, then engine in, then downpipe, then wastegate dump pipe on wastegate, then wastegates in place. She's a little tooooight Also fiddled with fuel lines. Plumbed the -8 AN lines to the stock body
  11. Well, the engine is back in my Type RA. Sort of. All in all, that turbo looks reaaaal at home. excuse the mess that is the engine bay. Should maybe have it running next weekend. We'll see how motivated I am haha. It'll need to come out again as the darn clutch didn't line up properly, and when I went to pull the engine back out to fix it, the hoist decided today was the day it blew it's seals.
  12. I mean, for the few hundred that blast plates cost, vs the cost/risk of breaking teeth of a dog gearset, I'd choose the blast plates.
  13. I'd definitely be putting a VF30 and STi Pink injectors in there. If you're not a savage they normally last quite long. Some are better than others but it's luck of the draw.
  14. Got the new wiring harness for my Type RA. Good lord this harness is tidy. This is after just a very quick nasty throw it on the motor. Much happy haha. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  15. +1 on getting SAS to do your tune. Also I'd have @SAS Do your downpipe. They're currently making my turbo setup and it is absolutely hnnnnnnnng level of awesomeness. Photos to come once done
  16. in short, it won't happen unfortunately. There's no technical issues in doing it, everything you'd need would literally just bolt on in, but you'll spend more time and money than just buying a GF8 outright. Save some money, just buy the car.
  17. You've gotta wonder what little intricacies car manufacturers have built in, but have never really been noticed or taken heed of lol
  18. So whats the normal price for the large one you linked? I just see $750 and no drop.
  19. My dyno sheet says 5.249:1 with a 1.0 tcf. I think those dyno numbers are a bit misleading, unless they're trying to see what crank horsepower is. But if that's wanted, used an engine dyno Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  20. it's 100% a GGA. Not a GGB (STi). GGB also comes with a 6 speed manual transmission. You probably have a 5spd.
  21. I'm not really sure of what you're asking here? If you want big boost and big torque, you are going to need better heads and cams. Ironically I've got a set for sale which have been worked heavily going to a 92.5mm piston, you'll likely want i beam rods for that sort of boost. you'd have no choice but to build your auto or go manual as you'll just push straight through your converter and likely cook the box. Pinning/dowling the mains and line honing would be a must. but I'm going to reiterate on the head side of things even if you don't buy m
  22. I also run 225/45/18s on my Gen III legacy. Looks good. I've got slight guard rub because of the 18x9 Rota Grids but eh.
  23. It's actually the Impreza badge that does it believe it or not. Insurers just lump all Impreza / WRX / STi models in one basket and are done with it. Yeah I'd agree with that. Turbo systems are relatively simple when you look at it. Exhaust manifold > wastegate > Turbo > oil\water feeds > boost controller That's it really.
  24. Nah I straight up don't want 500kw haha. Fairly certain a GC8 would be from wtf this is fast at 400kw, to "I'm going to die in this car" at 500kw.
  25. I bought myself an engine. Specifically the sleeved 2.2L stroked to 2.35L that was for sale on here. I'm now sending it to SAS for a freshen up. Will run my v8 Spec C heads on it, rather than the v4 STi heads. Will get some cams for it too. @Niran Who's gonna hit 400kw first bb
