  1. Im not the best person to ask about those details, theres a few guys on here who have twins who might be able to give you help. Search the hose 10 mod as well, that helps with....something or rather, but helps anyway, have a read. For me its white, black or if you can find one the lemon? yellow ones. I think they are more rare or of course Subaru blue
  2. Do you mean the wagon? I don't think there would be too much different about checking one out with the TT system, main thing would be to check both turbos do produce boost and check the change over to the second turbo. If you do get one and need any parts I have a nice pair of turbos sitting right behind me now currently being paper weights. and a few other things I can dig out if you do buy one. The good thing is the suspension struts/springs can be directly swapped out of an Impreza , depending on year might just need to swap out the top hat, but not a big deal, can open up more options for aftermarket stuff. I love the look of a nicely done BG5, Im a big wagon fan.
  3. What part of the country are you in? I have a box of TT piping, might have what you need. Im in Chch. which lines did you replace?
  4. Yeah hella expensive, with that and with the rear X-force cat back and another set of mufflers that I have already brought it would nearly be half of what I paid for it. Fitment should be no problem, as long as you order the right one for MT or AT. Would so love these, heart says yes, brain and wallet say hell no.
  5. Not sure how much shipping would add to the price, but I found this. https://www.japanparts.com/parts/detail/23233
  6. That thing looks like an abortion of a car. I saw this when looking for Legacys, its so wrong and should never be sold or shown to the public again, its been up for a while and not sure if it will ever sell, unless the price drops by about $5500
  7. Sorry, totally forgot reading that you had new ones, Im getting old and my memory is not so good these days, when it never was great. Hopefully someone else has a better answer
  8. Still check the end of the boot, my wifes car uses coil on plug, there was a small hair line crack in the inner part of the bottom plug/boot. Also with a slightly leaking valve cover leak made it worse as the oil would travel up the crack and make the misfire worse. Get a torch and have a look at it and see if you can spot any cracking, might need to pull another as a reference. Once I swapped it out with a new one the car ran sweet.
  9. Did you get new leads as well? if you havent tried swapping the leads I'd try that too, the wifes car had a dodgy boot and was arcing, dropping the cylinder every so often. If you still have the old plugs check any for signs of arcing along the porcelain section.
  10. If it slips now, it will always slip unless you replace the 1/3 bands. Metal filings is a really bad sign, the damage is done, get a replacement gearbox, paid for by the mechanic as he put the wrong oil in it and caused the damage. It may work ok for a month or two, but then it will be too late as they can claim you did additional damage in those months.
  11. This is spot on. A proper dyno tune will build up the required parameters as they go through many pulls on the dyno. If the guys have been tuning these engines for a while then they know what works as a good base then tune to your cars preferences. Have a look at HP Acadamy or even Scotty from Haltech when he tunes on Mighty Car Mods on youtube. I would start at the 3rd cat (y section) back first before spending money on headers as said above are restrictive but so is the rest of the system. My 3.0 outback is running a 2.5inch to 2.25 to straight through mufflers - xforce system, and it helps get the system breathing better, definitely noticeable. Check out @gotasuby , he has a couple of build pages and knows his Subarus.
  12. This, ECU will be trying to control the wrong sized turbo. The TDO4 is small compared to a VF28 type turbo.
  13. Only thing I could think of is that the lock up is now working and when you need it it actually works. I know mine drops about 500rpm when the convertor locks up, and you may not notice it until you push the accelerator and then it unlocks and slips again giving you the extra rpm. If the oil was very contaminated then it may affect the lock up clutch. What city are you in? it might be an idea to talk to a specialist auto trans place. Im only going off my basic knowledge and experience.
  14. What year is the car. Only thing I can think of is that the clutch band for 5th is worn and slipping. Any reason why you changed the trans fluid? was it badly discoloured?
