  1. I think RSS have been involved previously with the MCA gold series range as the owner races off road.
  2. Limited stock just arrived.I don’t think prices have been worked out yet.I was more interested in build quality.
  3. Street Ultimate Aus $2750 / NZ $3250 (estimate).
  4. Was given a estimate,Aus dollars retail converted to NZ dollars.RSS also revalve and rebuild them.
  5. Dropped in to see my local suspension guy at Race Shock Specialist,Penrose.They are now the NZ distributor for MCA Suspenion.They currently have a small range in stock.
  6. My favourite.Could I stance my car so the new tyre labels don’t wear.
  7. I’m sure your Td04 can be rebuilt and modded but not sure about the Vf38,44 and 45.@Andy_Mac the Td04 ‘maybe’ has the larger compressor wheel.Was told by my tuner that the Vf45 flows the best top end.@Mikk Wreckers price on a used Vf45 approx $650.Check out Kinugawa Legacy twin scroll turbos for new aftermarket.
  8. Vf38,vf44 and Vf45 are the only direct replacements.Vf45 being the best.Limited choice of turbos for the 2.0L twin scroll Legacy.
  9. I had a car that had same problem.Didn’t replace the spigot bearing in the crankshaft after engine came back from a rebuild.You can also damage the bearing if the clutch plate isn’t aligned properly when installing the gearbox.It’s a cheap part which is generally overlooked.
  10. Front side cam cover below oil dip stick.4 x 10mm bolts.I have a mini Teng tools socket set 5.5 to 13mm sockets,various screw heads,extension and ratchet.All packaged in the size of a cigarette pack.Cost around $65. TengTools BBX20
  11. Listen for any nasty rattles or noise coming from cam covers and remove passenger side cover and check cam belt for wear and cracks.Purchased my bl in Nelson and drove back to Auckland with barely legal S*** tyres.Wellington to Auckland was in pouring rain and darkness.Bent a rim driving through Hamilton.
  12. My old Bh tt didn’t have a vacuum leak,but because the vacuum reservoir hoses were pinched the reservoir couldn’t reach full vacuum,causing intermittent sync problems between the twin turbos.No check engine lights.Was suggested by a good Subaru mechanic to check vacuum hoses,especially the plastic pipe/hose that runs from the reservoir around the front of the radiator to the solenoid box.Maybe a small vacuum leak causing the reservoir to loose vacuum overnight.As soon as car started,vacuum replaced.These cars are getting old and require a lot of maintenance because of the complexity of the tt engine.Cheap to buy,expensive or time consuming to maintain. My old Bh tt will make full boost from cold.I’m always telling my son to warm the car up first.
  13. Possibly a vacuum leak that stops the vacuum reservoir in the passenger front guard holding vacuum which controls the tt solenoid box which controls the turbos.Had this problem after a engine rebuild where the tards had trapped/pinched the vacuum hoses to the vacuum reservoir under the battery.
  14. I have a 3.0 Outback facelift and agree with poor fuel consumption.I normally use the white Subaru oem filter but replaced the air filter with the orange type,noticeable improvement in fuel consumption.Run Mobil 98 from the same local gas station.
