Will ask tuner this question. Though the ECU has to still think that the ABS is working as it takes a feed from it to allow DCCD-Auto to work. DCCD-Auto is the only setting in Ver9/10 Sti's that allows Diff to not bind while doing slow manoeuvres or reversing. I assume in earlier versions of DCCD without Auto DCCD that it would release diff either at certain tight steering angles or slow speeds so that diff does not bind?

JDM hatches are quite difficult to find in the UK, unless you were to import one yourself. Although I have seen 2 Type 20's for sale and this:

Hmmm that could cause an issue. I think your original plan of removing the hardware is the better option.

Removing the hardware is actually not too bad a job. I've done one and could do a tidier job now that I have seen it done the first time. I'm tempted to redo mine re-routing the copper lines a bit more neatly; I've seen it done with all braided hose too which is an option but probably introduces a bit too much flex for an heavily abused track-day car

Oh right, I thought the background looked familiar. Importing is probably the best bet, more variety of JDM goodness

John I was rather hoping to ask your help in doing the battery relocation to the boot instead, time permitting!
Though I am wondering whether it matters then, when transporting fuel in jerry cans in the boot or if e.g a swirl pot setup is added in boot later?

It'll have no impact upon any swirl pot installation - they are routinely installed together. We just need to orientate the battery so that the terminals are not going to inadvertently come into contact with anything loose in the boot, but it is equally simple to add a couple of tie down points so that the jerry cans don't rattle around in the boot - that would be sensible anyway. You can always get a completely enclosed battery box

We can discuss it at Uxbridge and I have nearly 8-weeks of leave due in the summer so it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours. I'm toying with making some improvements to mine at the same time so we could get both done together.

Forgot to share these outstanding results from my car on std VF36 with supporting mods to get 365bhp, probably the highest figure I have seen on a Vf36 without methanol. Funny how times change....several years back I was trying to chase those last few bhp figures to try and get my Spec C or this to approx 340bhp and constantly posting every incremental result. Now I just causally popped down to Surrey Rolling Road where Charlie & Duncan "Race Dynamix" were at work just to get a car health check and power run and it effortlessly made this on its first run!

Ironically this may be one of the last few posts in this mammoth 56,000 view / 570 post thread named "Back to the Future"..........the film which also ironically was celebrating its 30th year Anniversary only a few days ago.........Maybe Marty McFly, this thread & myself are getting too old for another part...................

This car is now up for sale.
Price is dependant upon how many aftermarket bits the buyer wants to retain. (Brakes are already sold and being swopped back to Brembos).

Anyone interested msg me here, or facebook or email:

[email protected]


Proper advert will be done next week.

GLWTS Ricky. Sure it wont take long to sell.

I felt the same way with mine too and it was a shame to see it sitting there on the driveway unused.

What you thinking of next?

Going to sell this and my daily Lexus GS250 F-sport which I only bought 6 months ago and replace with one car, probably an E92 M3 (dct) Competition Pack.

Also been toying with that idea too, defo has to be the competition pack with the optional BBS's. Either that or a C63.

I say all this but I know i'll end up in a GTR!

C63 has the raw power but not so track focused.
GTR is ideal but is 25k more then M3 of similar year

can't see the for sale thread yet, not having second thoughts are you.
I am only here looking for a bargain due to how good the car is now and I know how much money you have ploughed into it.
So hurry up as i have cash waiting

And so the final chapter in the three part, Subaru trilogy comes to an end. 8 fun filled years of learning, meeting new people, new experiences, blowing lots of hours and wonga without a thought, getting older, sometimes going round in circles, sometimes cross threading- ok a lot of cross threading but most of all making new friends...............thank you MSOC
