  1. You'd be hard pressed to find an Outback with an 'honest' owner using 95 :( I'd just try find one that is tidy, good service history and go from there
  2. Go see my post. Not sure why my photo isn't showing No issues with my gearbox either.
  3. I replied to your previous thread: IMO - sell and and get an STi, they have more potential at the end of the day and you'll probably spend more $$ trying to get your WRX to feel like an STi.
  4. IMO - just get another EJ205 WITH AVCS from a v7 or v8 WRX. Probably looking around 1500 to 2k. Try Strong for Subaru, they're generally pretty good
  5. I have a 2002 Version 8 WRX. I first replaced the TD04HL to a TD05-16G - it wasn't a straight swap. The car was also retuned and it made a lazy 175kw. Lazy. It was not a great experience. When on boost, it felt OK. Off boost, it sucked. Avoid. I replaced the TD05 with a VF30, retuned, 196kw - a WAY more responsive car. I'm so happy with it. I've also upgraded from the WRX Blue injectors to STi Pink injectors, a STI manifold, that does not have the TGV valves, STi intercooler and a decatted factoy downpipe. I believe I'm getting limited by the flow of the WRX heads, but I'm not chasing power Also - I avg 11l per 100k daily driving and about 9.8l per 100k on the open road.
  6. Talk to Dave @ BrakeTech, I've been using Dixzel pads and they're great! Otherwise @gotasuby can help. Good pads will come at a cost, whether it's noise, brake dust or poor cold performance. It does depend on your driving style/goals. You wouldn't want to run a race orientated pad if you're just a bit of a quick street driver.
  7. GOT IT! Borrows a camera that's on a 5m long cable. Now I can't get the OE heatshield back on.. fml.
  8. Went to swap the factory turbo headshield for a random one I was given for Christmas. Didn't fit, plus one of my earbuds fell into the engine bay. Spent 3 hours trying to locate it, gave up, Sulked. I don't think my Subaru wants any lovin' or I'm cursed for working on cars.
  9. When my seat belts were squeaking, I cut those ribs out. Didn't see any wax coating on them. Good work!
  10. It's Duplicolor glossy, and yeah I did go a bit ham and the coats are too thick, but looks OK for a first timer. For the Subaru writing, you're pretty dead on the money, but I will use silver paint
  11. Gave painting one of my calipers a crack, photo makes it look OK
  12. I used: 22433AA551 https://partsouq.com/en/search/all?q=22433AA551
  13. Take photos, lots of photos of your dash and pillar trim prior, just to be safe.
  14. Can someone ELI5? Regardless of turbo size, get/make the biggest downpipe you can?
