Wish I could make the meet. I'll be outta town as well. Would love a lanyard! Oh well I guess... Unless someone from pocy wants to grab an extra one (if there are any) and when I get back in town I can grab it. If not, its cool.

So, got a quick question. Was wondering if I were to put a sway bar from an 04 sti on to my 03 bugeye, would there be much of a difference?

Also wondering if there is anyone local that does coilover rebuilds. The coils I bought could use some work. Lol the fronts anyways.

Depends which bar.
Front on yours is already a 20mm, same. Rear one yours is a 17mm most likely. (can't remember if some 03's had a 20, or if that ended in 02 for sure. measure yours...) If so, yes a 20mm STi bar would be a bit stronger. Neither is crazy, i run 20/20 oem's on my WRX, its pretty mild. but its a good use for a cheap part. Not worth paying a ton for or anything, as there are plenty of 20mm rear bars out there, and used bigger adj ones go for $100 or less often.

As far as susp rebuilding? i don't know anyone that does locally. Usually most companies have a place you can ship them to, or in some cases other companies will rebuild/revalve or competitors stuff as well...

So, pizza at Lucy's (7) then IMS and beer at Frosty Gator (also 7)? I think that will be my plan.

I think I'm just gonna wait and get some aftermarket adjustable sways.

And for the coils, I really don't think anyone local does rebuilds also. It would be nice though. Lol but really, after I installed them all, I think only one really needs some work. Nothin is leaking, just. Can't adjust the dampening on one. Can't turn the adjustment knob at all. Other than that it works fine. So for now ill just ride it as it is. The rest work great! So I'm pretty happy with my $100 purchase. Hehe just gotta do some fine tuning to get it set where I like.

Yeah, can't complain much for $100
I just found some used whiteline springs for $100 and i was happy.

And yeah... #3 I guess. What were we up to on the last one, almost 5000 posts or something? Go E.I.!!

I found it! Was scared and all alone for a 1/2 day. Bad news I started my car this morning let it run for a minute backed out tried to accelerate and it felt super choppy and bogged down. I drove another 50 feet pulled over let it run for another 5 minutes. I then tried to go again same feeling of no acceleration and it sounded like a VW Bug engine >.<
So I decided to take it straight to a mechanic and on the way the check engine light started to blink. He hooked it up and said it was a pending code and it said cylinder 2 was misfiring!! NOOOOO, so he cleared the code, I turned the car off and on again and it started fine and was idling fine. Drove it back home and it was running just fine. What would cause cylinder 2 to just randomly start miss firing then stop doing it?! Should I take it up to sues roos and get it checked out?

Could have a leak somewhere. It would keep pulling timing until it feels like limp mode. Wouldn't be the first time on a Subie.

Bad coil or a bad plug can cause it. How many miles do your plugs have on them?

That happened with mine on #3 a couple years back so I changed the plugs and it ran fine for a few hours and it ended up being the coil.

Yup, the fact that it went away and back to plain normal all the sudden makes me think ignition. How many miles on the plugs? If nto much, replace just number 2, if its a decent amount, just do em all anyway. then, if it happens again, and its still #2, swap the coils front to back and see if that makes it chase the bad coil, or stay with the cylinder.

Heck, i think i did worse today. Pulled my front struts from the WRX, re-greased n installed STi units w/whiteline springs. Re-torquing the upper of the two big lower bolts, i spaced the value and over torqued by say, 20-30 lb/ft. Ended my day. Trashed my camber bolt unfortunately. Gotta find a new one.

Hahaha
you all owe me $6

Post #2 for proof



any ways...

I got my codes pulled.
P0428 and P0244.

P0244 says
"Turbocharger wastegate solenoid "A" range/performance.
Probable cause
A: open or short circuit condition
2: Poor electrical connection
▲: Faulty wastegate solenoid"

P0428 says
"The PCM determined that the voltage signal from the catalyst temperature sensor for bank 1 is too high for the current engine conditions."


So I need a tune, yeah?
Time to figure out how to fix the 244...

It's nothin major, bout an inch or so. Seemed the back was a bit saggy though, so maybe some spacers. Wish I had some pics of the car with them...I might, Ill look for some. Don't know if you remember how my car looked at panda the one time I came. But they were on at that time.

They are eibach pros. I paid just over 200 for em and havent had them but only 9 or 10 months. So make an offer. I'm pretty open minded. Lol

They aren't bad on stock struts, but I think would benefit more from something like kyb's or koni's.

I have 97xxx miles on the car, bought it with 62k and I haven't changed the plugs since then, and I don't know if they ever have been changed. I will definitely do the plugs first and see if that fixes it. Thanks for your help fellers, worried me for a bit! Still sucks but at least its not a huge issue... i hope!

Anyone gonna be around Rexburg this week hahaha Never done spark plugs before.

ha!!! i new it. scroll down and you'll see the rce regular black lower 04-07 STI 15mm in the front and 10 mm in the rear

and for the 08+ wrx sti lowers 5mm... i guess that's still pretty close to stock though.

Its easy, you're welcome to come down if you want any help (i'm just in Rigby).
Should only be like $10 in plugs if you use copper, or plat even. Bit more if you want iridium ($25ish?)


Lacrosse, you're running a catless DP, but no tune, still, right? i am kinda inclined to think the 244 code is a result of you making more boost now and the wastegate adj settings not reining it in. Possible anyway. How much boost are your peaking at?
As far as the cat temp sensor code? thats because of your new up-pipe. is there even a bung for your post-cat temp sensor? or is it even installed? ultimately, you can unplug it, insert a resistor in the plug, and call it good. It not needed since you no longer have a up-pipe cat.


LASTLY: (this is of some importance to me)
I need an upper (camber) bolt for the front strut of an Impreza. Anyone happen to have a spare one or know where i can get one anytime soon? Ruined one on my wrx and need another to finish out the struts. Thanks in advance...

I'm in the same boat. Someone hit my car while it was parked at a store down here. Fender, bumper, and driver's headlight seems to be the extent of the damage, but we'll see for sure when the body shop takes a look at it.
