  1. ok sweet, I found the original O2 sensor wire extension under my seat so its all good to go. The exhaust is pretty straight and 3 inch all the way to about an inch before the genome muffler so it cuts out the bends and flanges so airflow should be okay even if it does have the restriction.
  2. Another question, The exhaust from the donor car has the o2 sensor in the 'post cat' area of the downpipe (if there was a cat) but on my car the o2 sensor is at the very top of the downpipe. Will it matter if I move the o2 sensor from top of downpipe to underneath the car without screwing with the tune? I doubt it matters but wanna be sure. Neither exhaust has a cat.
  3. Ok sweet. I might go ahead and swap exhausts over. The genomes are reasonably quiet but when you hit boost it wakes up and sounds pretty good with a 3 inch before it.
  4. Long story short I have a second V7 Sti and the exhaust is a 3 inch catless turbo back with a sti genome tip (whole exhaust is one peice with no flanges). It sounds really good and wondering about putting it on my black V7 sedan. My question is would the genome muffler be too restrictive as my black v7 is tuned to 210wkw. Potentially going for 240-250kw in future. Would it allow for those numbers?
  5. not sure why but I cant see those photos.
  6. Ok thanks. Ill hopefully get this done this weekend.
  7. Ok very helpful. Thanks. So where ecactly is the pcv for the crankcase? Is it on the block or intake manifold?
  8. I want to sort my pvc setup before getting my retune for my V7 Sti and have a few questions. Would running a three port catch can with one port for both head breathers, second port for crankcase vent and the 'clean air' port (third port) to just run underneath the car instead of back into intake be okay? Are there any issues letting 'metered air' escape? Id rather let the air go to atmosphere as I bet there is still somehow still oil or other crap in the 'clean' air. Its also easier in my case to just vent it carefully underneath the engine. Also is it fine to combine the
  9. When I put my V7 on dyno is was dangerously lean according to Chris. He cleaned it and then it was mint. He said its pretty common. That had a K&n oil panel filter at the time. Looking for one for my mates V7 who has FMIC so it needs a pod filter. Edit: could be the oil making it dirty or AFM could have just gotten dirty over time but it happened to my old v7 when I got that on the dyno a few years ago.
  10. Looking for a non oiled 'dry' pod filter for another car as the oil ones mess with AFM. Tried to google but didn't come up with much. Maybe the cheap SCA one isnt an oil one but cant be sure.
  11. Any tips for removing the Lower transmission nut (probably 2 nuts) that are behind the Axle, none of my extensions, spanners or swivel joiners fit or give me the leverage to loosen it. I better not have to remove the damn axle... EDIT: NVM I lifted engine and gearbox up a bit and it gave me enough room to fit spanner. Hopefully engine will be out tomorrow
  12. not rly but in 2 other (non subaru) projects, the sump has plenty of schmutz... although they both had rod knock 😄
  13. While engine is out should I also take pan off, clean out the schmutz and check oil pickup etc then RTV it back? Or is this asking for trouble.
  14. Bit of a thread hijack. I have a vf30 in my v7 atm. Are vf22 much better and worth swapping? My goal is to make a car that feels quick. I love the way these turbos kick as they make it feel quicker than it is. Will have aem fuel pump, 3 port, full exhaust and tune.
