  1. Sorry clean I meant. Won't let me edit the the post for some reason.
  2. I'm sure this has been covered before but I couldnt for the life of me find anything with search function. Have been experiencing a violent shudder when she reaches peak boost. Watching the boost guage the needle will flutter where it normaly held firm. Thought at first it may have been sparkplugs as they were due to be changed. Did so and no result. Searched for vacume leaks and cant find anything visually, also used the brake kleen trick but had no luck there. Checked the intake/bov/intercooler for excessive oil residue but everything seems fine. No CEL and not sure where to look now.
  3. Are you getting all four rebuilt? Last time I had that quoted it a new set wasnt much more.
  4. Can i use a rev c tiptronic dash cluster in my rev a manual legacy?
  5. To run an aftermarket pipe like that, would you of still had to change the gearbox crossmember? Also, thanks for the japrace link. Thats a bloody good price.
  6. You'll need an version 5/6 non sti ecu. The wiring portion seems easy enough - there's a walkthrough around here somewhere. I'm doing it and the hardest part to find so far has been the ECU. Buy this http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/subaru/ecus/auction-928433444.htm
  7. I know the intake manifolds between a version 4 and 5 are different and not interchangeable but are the gaskets?
  8. Depends on how fussy you are. All of the above for a perfect conversion. You will also need to 'massage' the front end a bit to get the lights to sit in and you'll have to find a pair of indicator plugs as the facelift ones are different. I've done just the lights on mine and gap isn't too bad. Its about 5mm around the top and edge that sits by the grill. Its mostly filled up with the rubber anyway. When I get around to it, I was gonna get some slim eyebrows made to cover it over.

  10. I think the easy lips look good on those rsk fronts.
  11. Does she lie under it while you undo the bolts?
  12. Whats the best way to clean up my exhaust manifolds and up pipe? They have fairly heavy surface rust on the cast ends and over the gasket faces. Would it be better to have the media blasted or acid dipped? Should I get them all refaced as well? Will be coating them in black and heat wrapping them before I install them.
