Currently trying to get my old ej20 out of my bg5 leggy, and am wanting to separate it from the gbox but am not having any joy... Have picked myself up a Haynes manual to try and make life a bit easier, but still nope. Is there any special technique in separating the engine off the dowels, as my technique of jacking the box up and then taking the weight off with the hoist is just making the two bind up on each other at the bottom. Have managed to get the top free of the dowels and drowned the remaining in crc type stuff..
Hey everybody, I'm kinda new here (had my BH5 GTB for a while and browsed the forum but haven't posted much) and just went and drove a BL5 the other day. The car is a 2005 Legacy GT with 100 thousand on the clock, 5MT, and seems in really good nick. Exterior and interior both really well looked after and doesn't seem to be thrashed at all which is always good! Only thing thats putting me off is the boost controller that is already installed.... Its a tap (as opposed to electronic)and the chap isn't really sure what it had been running on. Initially said to me 1.5bar but he wasn't too sure, to which i thought was ridiculously high, but when i expressed my surprise he just became more unsure. When I drove it, it was boosting just under 1 bar (much more normal??). So i guess after my mini essay, I'm just after what you guys think about this situation and also how well the BL5s handle a bit more boost? By a bit more I mean ~15psi - AFAIK 13.5 is std? If i do buy the car, I'd be looking to take out the tap straight away. Also, what kind of fuel consumption do you all get from your BL5 LGTs? Im hoping its a bit better than my BH5 which is decidedly average.. I've loved my BH5 for the last 3 years or so that I've had her, but the BL5 just seems a heap more refined! Cheers guys! Mike
