  1. 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.
  2. Ok I have the lamco sensor and it looks like it should screw right into the block in replace of the bung on cylinder 3. Will give that a go.
  3. I have a set of these too which I have just wired into the car and now I need to install the sensors. This oil temp bung, is this the one on top of the block at the back on cylinder 3? I am thinking it could be heaps tidier using this than the sump plug.
  4. Short answer is yes they are, and so they should. They are old cars now and good ones are harder and harder to get hold of. As with a lot of 90's era cars. Also a lot of 90's JDM, vehicles were built by manufacturers as homologation model vehicles to meet production number requirements for rally and racing purposes. Hence They also had a lot of technology that you might say was before their time. They are also still arguably the most fun models to drive. Take the GC8 STI for example. Probably the most fun STI's subaru has built to date. Take the performance figures of the Version 4 STI. I believe it had a quoted 0-100 time of 4.6secs. Still quick in today's standards. And Very very quick back in the 90's.
  5. Could try that however Water does just pour out of the tank as soon as I take the hose off.
  6. I am doing a split rail system. Stock I beleive is 5/16 which I think is AN5 size. However i am thinking of going up to AN6 braided or push lock hose to use push lock fittings. Some people say AN6 hose will go onto the stock fuel filter but all my research on hose measurements indicates it's too big but I Just wondered if anyone has any first hand experience to confirm for me.
  7. Hey there, Just wanting to confirm, will dash 6 fuel line clamp directly to the stock fuel filter? Or do I need to use an adapter to convert to 6AN fuel fittings to connect the 6an fuel hose.
  8. Ok so I have checked the hose and cant find any blocks, and I have run the pump a number of times but still no luck in getting any water to come out of the water spray nozzles.
  9. Funny guy That's what I thought. Have run it a few times. But nothing getting to the sprayers. Yep I pulled the hose off at the bottom of the tank at the pump and water was pouring out, without the pump going. Will check theres no blockages further up the lines.
  10. Hey there I wondered if there was any tips on feeling the intercooler waterspray system. I have had the tank etc out of my car and now plugged it all back in. The waterspray motor is going but there is no water getting to the nozzles. Anyone had this happen before? Cheers
  11. Ok that is interesting. I would be interested to see photos of how it is now. I had my cat sitting on blocks when I tried to fit the k brace and it didnt look like it was going to be even close to bolting up.
  12. Hey there, Has anyone fitted a whiteline anti lift kit with a cusco front K brace on a GC8? I have tried to fit mine but due to the angle the anti lift kit puts on the control arm, the k brace hits the control arm before you can bolt it down properly. Just wondering if anyone has any tips or has tried this. Cheers
  13. The Aus post service is a shocker for time. I had a parcel take 3-4 weeks to arrive. It should come through eventually.
  14. Just putting it out there. Whiteline have 20% off across their range if you are after anything. Discount code GRIP20 on their website Cheers
  15. So far I've used VHT but am looking at stripping this back of and going again with something else. Have a couple of spare trims to test what works best. Prior to lockdown I bought some mother's trim restorer and have tried it on one trim to see how it looks, but I would appear that this will wear off after time. Not sure how long it will last. So hard to get paint to look like factory. Not too glossy and not too matte.
  16. Hey Guys, Just wondering if anyone has any tips on tidying up roof trims and window trims. I have attempted prepping and then spraying them in satin black VHT. However I am not real happy with out come. I wondered if there is anyway of tidying trims up without actually painting them. Just need to bring the colour back into them. Cheers
  17. Hey guys, I have misplaced a grommet from the firewall on my GC8. It is the one directly behind the down pipe about halfway down the firewall. Does anyone know where I can get a replacement from or does anyone have one? Need it to run some wiring through it. Cheers
  18. I think the facts are is they have gone up in value. 11 yrs ago there would have been a crap ton more of them around so not a great comparison. Supply vs demand means value changes. Be lucky if 3.4k buys you one with a wof and reg, let alone running.
  19. Sweet. Would like confirmed pricing for items on my list before I give the go ahead to order.
  20. My whole interior is out of the car, and I am getting trimfix to do it.
  21. Mine is a version 5 STi Ra limited Perhaps the dash should be black, and is just super faded.
  22. Hey guys, I am just tidying up my interior in my car and am going to repeat the dash board because it is faded, however there is a bit going on with the colour scheme in these cars and I am not sure what I should be colour matching the dash board too. The door cards are a real dark grey, on the top half, and light grey bottom half., and then the handles on them are a grey colour halfway between the two. Anyone know if the dash should match one of these colours?
  23. I'm not sure how far away it should or shouldnt be. But I'm just hesitant to wreck the hpc coating by cutting a hole and welding a new port in the right spot on the bellmouth. If I do have to do this I probably will because finding an aftermarket stainless front pipe for the GC8 chassis with 02 port correct is a mission.
  24. I have a 3 inch hks catless downpipe on my GC8 that has the top 02 port in the wrong place so the sensor hits the clutch master. Any of this know if there would be any issues in relocating the O2 sensor tot he port that is at the bottom end of the downpipe? Pipe has already been HPC coated so want to try and avoid cutting and welding if I can.
  25. I was looking at ones done less than 100ks
