Not sure about the wing haha. Might swap it for a standard one. They are worth a bit of coin though! 

 

My little cousin used to own this. Have driven it and its a bundle of fun. He is also the one to blame for the wing..sorry 😁. its not my cup of tea but he put a lot of effort into getting it fitting etc.

@A_J_T oh wow - did your cousin own this car before?  I need to figure out how to remove it haha. Hoping its not glued on as well as bolts.

Yea he bought it in early 2018, fixed a number of issues that it had when he bought it, thoroughly enjoyed the car and then sold it later that year iirc and picked up a Hilux as it was not a good daily 😂 Unsure on owners inbetween him and you though. I'll ask him how he attached it and find out if its easy enough to remove

@A_J_T would be amazing if you could put me in touch with him as i have many questions haha

Just had a chat to him and it just uses bolts/nuts the same as the standard spoiler. simply unbolt it and it will pop off. I'll hit you up on FB mate, saves spamming this thread.

From the rear it reminds me of a book shelf for some reason

Got some new tyres. The Laufenns that came on the car were both quite worn, and very sh*t. Some Continental MaxContact 6s work much better. Bit over kill for an outback, but better too good then not good enough.

Also I cleaned it, looks less homeless now :)

Yes yes... However... Twins remain? 

 

 

You need a build thread mate.. also who is tuning it?

Yes, would be keen to find more about this, especially how the twin system is set up, I don't see the BBOD in the photo.

BBOD is in the photo. its plumbed as normal so I assume its the standard sequential setup.

So, I've been tinkering with my Legacy a lot for the last couple weeks

 

I've replaced front and rear shocks as the originals were poked.

Replaced the Brake rotors and pads on all four corners

Fixed the Stereo wiring issues. 

Fixed the trims around the car. 

Replaced the ignition barrel

Wheel alignment

Oil change for gearbox and engine

 

Got it tuned by @Pappu1 

Unfortunately, and quite frustratingly, there's a lot of knock with my engine during tuning. Not really conducive. 

What I do know that's an issue is this. 

There is a boost leak, I can hear it under WOT, and I know for a fact it's causing over fueling. 

Cold start up fuel smell. Typical of this MY Legacy.

 

Looks like I'll be pulling the intake manifold off this car and replacing all the fuel line hoses, and any VAC hoses / problematic boost hoses. Could also be a blown out manifold gasket, but I've not heard of that before tbh.

 

Part of me wants this thing to blow a turbo so I can put a single turbo setup on it, but the other part of me loves a good twin setup and wants to make this work. Just god damn the amount of VAC hoses in this thing is F*cking nightmare

Picked my car up from Kaizen works who fixed two exhaust leaks and fitted my air oil separator. Tracked down a new spot light cover as mine decided to exit the bumper last time I drove the car :( so will be getting some paint matched on Saturday to spray the new one. Besides this just waiting for Tuesday to roll around so I can have the touch up tune done then enjoy the car :)

you and @JordanfromNZ should have a support club for BBOD lovers. 
 

let’s help you out...

 

V11 twinscroll turbo for peanuts. https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/car-parts-accessories/subaru/engines/listing/2442089417

 

@Andy_Mac may still have a stash of headers. 

Just need a few extra bit and 300whp

I believe you'll find that the VF48 is a single scroll turbo my friend :)

Meh I forget they still make made v11 with such old tech. Still 100% better than twin turbo. 
 

I have a twin turbo exhaust cover if it’s interchangeable
