  1. What @Andy_Mac said it’s mapped to a target torque/power map that is calculated to/from a bunch of things. some models the boost limited could be different in I vs S and S#. In I the foot to the floor maybe only 80%. Mainly S# is S but with throttle getting to 100% way before the end of the travel. Much faster response.
  2. Mine has. 2.5” on the cat back joint only and made no difference.
  3. That sounds like a nightmare. VTNZ are great at not knowing WTF they are talking about. Been to one that didn’t even know what LVVTA cert plate was.
  4. I’m guessing NZTA not VTNZ https://www.nzta.govt.nz/contact-us you could also try to get the old owner to do a personalised plate transfer form if you can find out who registered it.
  5. Ok now I’ve put some km on these in wet and dry I will says very much softer sidewalls than the RE00x series. Running stock pressures. much softer and forgiving in pit holes, not so much dash rattle. grip is slightly lower. grip loss is progressive and very easy to pull back under control. The RE are much more snap loss of grip and skittish when they grip again. wet performance is very close to dry. You’d need standing water on very smooth roads or the track to upset them.
  6. Not that I found. wreakers sell the sets often with the controller unit and locks. last I looked partsouq had no stock and the wreakers was the only option.
  7. And we wonder why it’s so hard to get a WOF
  8. Case flex was a Nissan GTiR problem. I thought you ate selector forks and bearing as well with flex. No amount of bracing fixed them. It slowed it but the flex would still kill them. Anyway I just took the offending gear and box to hear cutting services (Mt Wellington in Auckland) and they worked out the new gears. They remade so the same and some in new ratios as 5th was to tall. worked with stock synchros and all. There wa s the option of dog engagement but then that’s often cheap from older rally cars teams.
  9. It’s always been something that pissed me off when places used too much. the hylomar stuff doesn’t break down and let go as much which could be the reason it’s in the service manuals of some manufacturers.
  10. I got that but not dog box ones. Just OEM style but better material. last gears I got cut the metal they used was the same as the 900hp hill climb cars and not straight cut. The cutting and time was the cost.
  11. So why not get the gears made in stronger material. It’s actually not that bad of a price last time I got some made.
  12. What is failing in all these gearboxes? Do you have short shifters fitted?
  13. Yeah but the 08 upwards are the biggest leap in Subaru since the BC era. they may not be pretty but they are more powerful and way more grippy. s*** even the S-GT is pretty good with a sway bar to get rid of the factory softness. have you gone for a drive in the newer ones. Sure it’s not the STI but the chassis is stiff compared to the older generations. or you can add a cage to get 80% or the new chassis improvement.
  14. AOS air oil separator as well.
  15. What @RaKid said. most are just a coil inside to make an electro magnet, since it is pulling a bit of metal and not another magnet the polarity won’t matter. some are but then the wires are coloured, marked in writing or unit will be marked. MAC ones are all black. the only ‘guide’ I’ve seen is to do with which side the switching is on. The ground lead should be switched which is what ECU’s and boost controllers do. Unless it’s USA v8 based stuff then some have switched positive and switched negative to choose from.
  16. Get the sti. The newer the better. don’t get fixated on a generation get the newest you can afford. more gears better brakes and has the intercooler already fitted. active diffs as well even at the same power it’ll walk away from the wrx
  17. Paint shops can make Those colours in a spray cans up and send them out.
  18. I still miss the 89-93 2.2L turbo with the ride height button that never worked on any of them.
  19. I suspected this from the 2007/8 when the announced the Impreza wagon was the same length as the original legacy. only America is going bigger cars, everywhere else is smaller and lighter. car parks haven’t got larger and most are smaller since software automatically generates the car parks for a given area to maximise the number at shopping centres. makes the legacy a classic sooner.
  20. 👍👍 I’m tempted to put the more rigid closed cell foam on the roof if I ever take the roof head liner out.
  21. https://www.rs25.com/threads/gold-wheels-color-codes-compilation.97335/ first link in google for the paint color
  22. I think @Batbaruman ones are a little more bronze than factory but not by much. there is an offical touch up paint as someone did mine before I had them. like I said call a paint and panel shop and ask them they can likely order colour exactly. about 3x the price per can but it will be exact.
  23. You get over boost at low rpm in high gear going up hills. In an auto you have that occur a lot. you can do the cat back only and it’ll sound good and not drone. The cat and factory down pipe with big exhaust gives a nice bark.
