Only had a few minutes before taking my son to Cub Scouts. So I climbed on my second story roof and took a couple of pictures. I think it puts things in better perspective.

i like where Gunshot is taking this car. Everytime i see it though im reminded of the cars in DTM. i say keep it up and i can't wait to see the finished product.

plus it looks like something subaru would do if they made a 22B variant for the newer legacy

Warning: Pictures ahoy....

Brake upgrades! The stock stuff s*!t itself (literally...a pad fell out), so we put the good stuff on the car. Installed 06-07 WRX 4p2p calipers, powerslot rotors, and StopTech pads. Had some troubles removing the nuts on the stock brake lines, where the flex line meets the hard line on the car, so the SS lines will be installed at a later date. The new brakes work GREAT, even with the stock lines.





The rear brakes were a BEAR, mostly because the Kartboy adapters required modification to fit. At first we thought it was because the car was slightly different, but then we discovered that the calipers wouldn't even bolt to them. Several hours of scratching our heads, a few quick buzzes with dremel, and all was installed and fitting.


In other news, we won best Legacy at the Gillman Big Event 4, in Houston. We didn't have a lot of Legacies to compete with, but it's the thought that counts.




That's it, for now!

Sharp looking wagon!

And if you haven't already done so, I recommend contacting Kartboy about the caliper adapter brackets. They're good folks, and if they sent out a bad batch I'm sure they'll want to know that and address the situation.

Thanks! I've contacted Preston from Flatirons tuning (where they were purchased), and addressed the issue, about the brackets, with him. I'll check to see if he got with Kartboy about the brackets. If not, I'll send an email to KB.

It was so weird, the issue we had with the brackets. It was as if a millimeter had mysteriously disappeared from the center of each bracket. I probably could have super heated each bracket, and they would have fit...or melted.

Sorry I'm posting here but I just subscribed so I can't create new thread (yet).
I have a '95 Legacy Lsi 2.2L. I was wondering if I could get some advice on spark plugs. I haven't replaced mine in quite some time and I think I will this weekend. This is the information I've gathered from around the web regarding the topic:
  • subies like NGK's.
  • Copper is the best conductor but doesn't last as long as Platinum/Iridium.
  • Platinum is the worst conductor of the three.
  • Iridium is the best choice if I would rather not replace them often.

I've noticed NGK has a couple of different models (G-Power, V-Power, etc.). I'm attempting to buy them on advanced auto parts or autozone and just trying to find which ones would work best in the car.

Also I've been having OBDII P0133 code (Oxygen Sensor Circuit Slow Response (Bank1, Sensor1)) come on for quite some time now. I've reset it a couple times but for the most part it comes back after 50-100 miles. So I'm considering buying a new O2 sensor but I might try removing and cleaning the current one first. If I would buy it though the OEM ones come out to around $100-$140 as opposed to the clipped wire ones (my car uses 3 wires) are around $30-$60.

If anyone can offer some advice on either of these two matters I would GREATLY appreciate it.

Thanks a lot!

I have NGK V-powers in my car. As far as O2 sensors, everything I've read says use OEM, Denso, or Bosch.

Okay. So does that mean I'll have to replace them every 1-2 years?? 2 more things I forgot to ask. Do you think the wires should be replaced also (the only reason i want to change the plugs was they've been in for a while and i feel like they need to be maintained vs. wires which i'm thinking should only be replaced if need be). also I'm at 122k. bought it with about 70k in 2005. so I've only put about 50k in 7 years but never replaced the timing belt. Do you think I should change it and do you think it's a risky DIY job (maybe I'll just buy the part and bring to mechanic (how much you think the service/labor would be?)). Thanks.

Got my timing belt replaced (which seemed to solve some of my sluggishness issues that were most likely related to timing) and installed some awesome mudflaps courtesy of Flapatax (flapatax.com). Because offroading

I changed my plugs and wires after about 30-35k last time. When I got the old plugs out they didn't look bad at all. They were V-powers as well. The timing belt and water pump should be done around 100k so you should look into that. Most places should to the spark plugs and wires as part of that service.

Threw in my new engine.




Low mileage ej25d block, rebuilt heads, new gaskets, all new timing components and water pump, new clutch, NGK wires and iridium plugs, new belts, new hoses... pretty much new everything, heh. Now that the maintenance is done, I can move onto fun stuff... like finally lowering it and acquiring wheels.
