  1. RIP Ross

  2. you're all old NOW hah no h8 Hi
  3. updated thread Title KHC is doing the hard work figuring this old Girl out! New Turbo on the way? & sticky Actuator getting sorted? this makes it a little more impressive and thank you for helping document your struggles & solutions on the forums! ❤️
  4. I will put that myth to rest : I'm not as clever as I appear : just a bit Silly (can confirm Male too FYI) yeeaaaah my Mechanic at the time rues the day I took that combo in & said never do that again as they had to find a Intake pipe to match as they were different Diameters on the intake side, stretching the job out as your can imagine "yeah sweet they should bolt up" went to "oh s*** we need to get more parts" there are way more clever people than me Still playing with these and some that have swapped Housings & Exhaust sides to make things work I have never got my hands that dirty (I have swapped motors "Like for like" & even then things never went straight forward) there's always a dumb piece of intake plastic to split or sensor to break "Some" will say go Single while you have the chance "others" (me) will say try & stay stock / OEM for as long as possible as they become a money pit Quick! & yeah both tracks are easier said than done, as you mention VF's are Dinosaurs now & yep that's kinda why I thought the 27 would be good My car ended up in Wgtn SO the old owner might still have parts if he's not had a clean up in the past 7-5 years? (sad to say it but try the Subaru Gen 2 and TT Groups hah) I am doing my best to keep the forums active, for things like that ❤️
  5. Cant say I ever dug in there, but with some dedication & determination I know it can be done (encouraging useless words)
  6. Correct 100% they came from Japan like that, disconnected or disabled, rather rare to see one still connected with the Butterfly in the System still mine was still plugged in and if you drove with the seats down & Cover off you could hear & see it activate at certain RPM's (I owned a BG5 Rev C GTB) Basically a "quiet" mode for street & LOUD for Fast @ WOT I'm not entirely sure of the Trigger or signal source & yeah, 'stock' exhaust' but unlikely the OEM rear section that made use of this (Twin Pipes?)

  8. I've got a bunch of Ali express ones in a box aye, fish eye & normal hah from $4? could nab one & give it a go (+ $3.50 delivery or free over $16 on this link : eg get 4x hah) https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005005525339771.html

  10. Sorry not much help but thanks for the updates aye someone else might run into this in the future etc best of luck
  11. I think AVS had the 8-Dip Switches? so ya just matched them up? could be wrong : never had one Not exactly regarded as *HIGH* security by some ❤️
  12. Location? Or take it to a Sparky Aye that shouldn't happen, you could try find the Brain & get the Manual Override code I think those still have them (or remove / bypass it)
  13. From a Facebook Post this week has garnered a fair amount of comments and reaction's

  18. Non Turbo WRX year was 2001 though, yes appears I confused myself : carry on have fun!
  19. Hardest Part : not sure if you've considered it, will be getting it road legal aye? It'll need a Cert which may include Brakes, driveshaft loops and even a Gearbox to handle it? eg the main reason most will say sell it & buy a Turbo Car sorry to be the "fun police here"
  20. jury's out so far but yep not a .co.nz email address I can say that much ❤️
  21. 20 years next yeah huh Elite Auto? I had a 'fancy' digital Fujifinepix 5megapixel? Camera with no Microphone
  22. I would also hazard a guess the internal Solder joints on the boards have gone dry & broken the 'old trick' was to Bake the circuit boards & re-flow them (not tried myself & sounds crazy at first) a common problem with fuel gauges of that era also love ya username LOL inventive even if cut short
  23. Other than speed sensors woes, yes? 5 Speeds are all very similar I understand Later have 8x bolt Bellhousings and you'll probably only have 4x? 6x Speeds are different length? (use Auto Driveshaft? I'm sure there's a sensor solution written on the forums somewhere again newest Subaru I've owned was a 98 BG5, and I've never got that Mechanical this is just from my form lurkings & Learnings
  24. "Everyone" that was a member of the old forum has the same Join date in 2009 as that's when this version went 'live' ❤️ thanks to @funkytown @Odie at the time iirc sorting the structure out
  25. ahh bugger I always skip that part & I was waiting for someone to pull me up posting the 'wrong' Rego too hah
