Re: GC8 finding a new motor

If you have taken it anywhere except a subaru specialist, but not subaru of corse, then I am not surprised you are getting wrong info. I would not let anyone who is not a subi workshop touch any of our rexs let alone do an engine rebuild.

Re: Random engine shutdown 02 wrx

No.. All good since that day. We have had it removed from all 3 of our rexs that had them fitted.. It is caused by cracked solder joints (2) on the main circuit board. The cracked joints are easy to spot and can be repaired but unless you can do it yourself it is best to have the entire system remov...

Re: Strut/spring set up re ride height gc8

King Lows with stock struts make a great combo.. We have that on out CSE2 and it handles better than out sti and has a nicer ride.. Both have same whiteline sways and whiteline links..

Exhaust ...Do it all at the same time as the tune will cost $1000...so no point in doing a couple of things at a time..

Re: Upgrading to STI

I can't see any issues of ever buying an already moded car as long as it has been tone properly and tastefully..I shake my head when people get all excited and say stuff like .." It is fully stock" ...That just makes me think, under powered, terrible brakes and suspension, and it's gunna c...

Re: immobiliser, won't let the car start!

The problem is going to be a couple of dry/cracked solder joints on the main immobilized circuit board. If you can find the little black box under the dash, the keypad will lead you to it, and unplug it, take the cover off and you will see the burnt joints.. This is one of the 2 that will be cracked...

Interesting to hear how it sounds. Good to see you installed the breather hole. Does that have an internal tube attached ??

Re: Crazy torque reading?

The 2 highest lines are related to kwts.. the numbers across the bottom of the sheet is the rpm.. The 2 lower value lines represent torque which is peaking around 3500 but it is a pretty useless chart.. I find that if you ask the tuner for kwt values and torque values they will do a sheet with the t...

Are you sure... I think you will find the 156kw at 6000 rpm.. I don't think it would do 7800 rpm.. :lol:

Re: Crazy torque reading?

Dyno charts can be a bit tricky.. especially when the color coding is hard to see ..Looking at the 6000rpm area it looks like it has gone from 128ish kwatw which is normal ish to 156 kwatw which is also about right for a good exhaust and a tune.. The torque is usually in NM not just N ..

Re: GC8 TBE need tune?

I have seen a new TBE damage an engine (bang, knock knock knock) and it was enough to make me wait till I had gathered all the goodies I was planning on fitting and installing them all at once then driving very slowly to the tuner.. It was frustrating but it did save a lot of money on tunes and I ha...
