Great news bud

Keep the updates coming, very interested to see your results

Running in map is going on the Subaru tomorrow. MOT is due on the 13th of Oct so be nice to have it mobile before hand!

Couple of photos of the old girl, saloon front end is now fitted also (wide front wings):

One of the engine bay from a couple of weeks ago. It's a bit tidier than this now:

Well shes back on the road!

Duncan popped over earlier and stuck a running in map on the car. Smoked a fair bit to start with due to heat wrap etc but has cleared up nicely now. Battery is ****e however, hoping it'll hold charge after driving it a bit. Have ran it up to 0.5 Bar of boost and all seems ok. No timing in the car though, just a nice safe map to get some miles under it's belt. First oil change will be done this weekend!

Not sure if you want to go that way, but East Kent Subaru have a full SL wagon interior on their ebay page at the moment - front and rear seats, and door cards. I am after just the rear seats and door cards but they said they wouldn't split.

Not interested in swapping the seats in mine.

Got about 130 miles on the engine now. Did the first oil change at 110 miles. Oil came out looking like metallic paint which is good as it means it's done it's job and the rings are nicely bedded in . Switched from Millers running in oil to 10w40 Semi Synth now.

Up to about 230 Miles now, car already seems fast with no engine timing and only 0.7 Bar of boost! Would show my daily BMW 330 a clean pair of heals I think!

Booked in for it's MOT at 3PM tomorrow, wish me luck!

On 670 miles now, changed to fully synthetic oil (Millers CFS 10w50 Nanodrive) on Saturday.

Ran Millers running in oil for the first 110 miles, then 10w40 Semi for ~500 miles, now on fully synth. Nearly ready to be mapped now to be honest. I need to swap the fuel pump to an RCM340 (Currently a Walbro 255), fit a stiffer wastegate spring and an Air Charge temp sensor then POWAH!

Maybe! See what it actually makes, turbo is rated from 460 to 580 apparently so we'll see what happens. It's got the right supporting mods, ID1000's, Billet fuel rails, RCM340 pump, FMIC, AVCS, Closed Deck lump etc.

You've nailed everything you need to so I'm guessing somewhere over 500bhp.


I'll take a stab at 547bhp.

She's sprung a leak! The radiator drain plug that I never use on my all alloy rad has started leaking when it's cold (when its warm it seems to stop). I can't even remember what brand my radiator is as I've had it about 4 years!

Looks to be a plastic wing nut style drain plug with a rubber o ring (o ring looks shot). Options are try and guess the thread size and get a brass or alloy bung for it. Or find someone who can weld alloy and completely remove all trace of it.

Anyone local to the Hook / Basingstoke area that can weld alloy?
