Default Legacy specific forums

Just curious if there is a legacy specific forum page. I should be picking up a 05 lgt within a week and would like to gather more information on the car. I'm wrx and sti savy but not so much on the lgt etc ha. There also isn't that much products for sale here for the lgts.

Thanks,
Corey

Mostly because we legacy boys tend to drive alittle less racecar. So the parts and cars last longer, thus less used classifieds and partouts. And congrats on picking up a leggy. I also own an 05 gt. 5mt wagon to be exact. Welcome to the fam.

True dat Torontolegacy.

Welcome 20Rex05, you may wanna try legacygt.com that's a Legacy forum. My handle there is TheMahFromTheU, theres good information on here (NASIOC) as well - essentially the 05' LGT (which i have, 4dr sedan 5EAT) motor is from the 04-06 STi's, just detuned.

What info are you looking to gain? Kind of a generic question. Specific areas?

20Rex05, I agree with SPT.WRX.2K8. There is a wealth of knowledge and parts (new and used) on the legacy forum (4th gen). There is less shenanigans on that forum compared with this one. A lot of the basic knowledge about WRXs applies to LGTs.
There are a lot of complaints about the VF-40 turbo on 05-06. If you have any other questions, I am under the same handle there.

Thanks a lot guys I actually signed up over there yesterday? Haha not to sure haven't had much time to check it out due to new born and job. I had 2 wrx's and I'm over the go fast bits well for the most part. I am really just looking to get a tbe and just other small tid bits. Something to get it sounding nice etc other then that looking for general knowledge on the car compatible wheels. Maintenance, see what other people are doing with there's ya know. The same thing any other enthusiast is doing ha. Thanks again for the replies.

Corey

P.S: My name over there is El Gee Tee. (Can't believe it wasn't taken!)

Well as far as maintenence goes... Definatly check the p/s valve cover gasket and half moon seals. Also the p/s front inner cv boot. The down pipe likes to cook those. I did a heat wrap on mine after replacing those parts and have been problem free since. The MOST IMPORTANT thing to check is the oil filter in the banjo bolt that connects the p/s cylinder head to the turbo oil feed line. Check for any metal debris in it and clean, replace or as i did remove the filter all together. Some guys swear against that but i swear by it. Im one of the few 2005 legacy gt's running the original turbo with zero shaft play. 100 of 160kms filterless. Just keep up with regular oil changes and use good oil. AMSOIL is my preference.

Uhhh.. its an ej255, not a 257 in the fourth gen.. same short block 05-06 as the 257 but different pistons.

Default A quick question...

Greetings,

Since I am new to this forum and have a relatively new (for me at least, it's a 2003 Legacy L wagon) Legacy, perhaps I can ask a question. I purchased a 2003 Impreza WRX exhaust off the classfieds. It includes the cat, muffler and downpipe. I have read several forums about using this exhaust on my Legacy. It seems possible with a few minor differences. One said the only difference is midpipe length. Is this length to be found between the engine and the cat? Or the cat and the muffler? Another said that it was simply a matter of redistributing the hangers. Do you have any advice or could you recommend a specific resource. Thanks for your time!

-Chris

Well.. I can kind of help. The tunnel length and bend of the midpipe are different between the two. The mid pipe needs to be lengthened and the flange needs to be rotated a hair. Also, two hangers need to be moved

Are you talking mid pipe between the downpipe and the cat, or between the cat and the muffler? Everything else makes sense. Thanks!

Well if you have a BE legacy, youd have headers to the cat to the mid pipe, and the mid pipe needs to be lengthened to reach the cat pipe. The strait portion that would typically meet the down pipe on a turbo car needs to be lengthened and rotated to meet the cat of the naturally aspirated one.

Essentially, the mid pipe needs to be altered. everything from the header to the end of the cat pipe stays the same

I have a BH legacy. Dunno if that makes a difference. Thanks for the information though!
