Default Looking for websites with products

Ok well all I hear is Brullen, Stromung... but do these guys actually have a website where I can look at what they offer. I spend hours googling this stuff and only found certain parts but not what I needed. Or are there websites that I can look at these brands from?

No offense Khan, but you need to spend a little bit of time exploring all the forums.

We have a Vendor Classifieds section specifically for Engine/ Power/ Exhaust parts you should look at:

Boxer4racing, cobb, and others most definately DO... try rallitek.com$$$ **call some of the vendors, or email with specific requests. You'll find that it's not as easy to point and click for Legacy spec stuff, as it is for wrx etc.

Many of you are A holes. The guy posted an honest request.

While maybe he should have been able to find the parts himself what good does it do to be an A hole and tell him that? If you believe it is so easy instead of wasting your time by typeign a post about how dumb he is or how easy it is to find parts how about your post where you think parts are available? Or if you really are an A Hole then continue posting your negative comments. Don't worry, "What goes around comes around."

As we approach 100,000 members, it is becoming evident that not only do the n00bs have no idea how to search , but they want everything spoon-fed for them. Gimme a break.

It really isn't that hard to find Leg parts. It does require the tiniest bit of effort... Searching the Vendor Classifieds would be a great start. Browsing the list of sites posted by iamrazor would be a good idea as well.

are we really almost at 100k? I still feel like a greenhorn noob. The leg stuff is a bit harder to track but the vendor areas are a good place to start as KD said. You may have to email or call to get your parts tracked down. Also if your asking for a certin part we may be able to help in the search but looking for legacy parts is kinda broad.

KD7000, I sounded like an old lady talking about how everyone should be nice nad get along didn't I? I don't disagree that there are many parts readilly availabel for the LGT. If you are looking for a specific part (i.e. brand and type) it is somtimes difficult.

I just think we scare people away some times by getting irritated that they either did not take the time too do a search or where unable due to lack of expierience to type the right words for the search engine to find the threads they where looking for. Like you said. There is almost 100k members maybe we should not care if we get any more?

WOW, I knew all the sites iamrazor has and still didnt find the parts but thnx anyways. I dont know specifically wich parts I need for the legacy, and in that case its hard to search through the vendors because they dont specify aplication most of the time. Stop being an ******* and if you dont know urself then dont post on here whinning. I am a noob yes but I know how to use forums and search engines, I did find many sites with subaru parts but could not find the parts like Brullen, Stromung which are the ones I was interested in.

KD7000 - it is harder to find parts for 2k legacy, 98 ones are availible everywhere.

Khan, yes finding parts for our car can be tough, but not impossible.
what is it you are looking for specifically?
there is a legacy section on cobb
there is a RS/legacy section on boxer4

also, did you know the EJ25 in your car is in the RS/outback/forester?

oh, and SEARCH

I understand what it is like to be a noob having only started looking into aftermarket parts 9 months ago. It is best to hang back and read often to pick up the atmosphere of each forum/site.

Since you know atleast some brands for what you are looking for it is best to search each form for the name or part and see what comes up.

Patience, curiosity, investigation and time are the keys to arriving at your destination.

Atleast that has been my tactic.

Also, a great source of information for our cars is http://www.legacycentral.org/ which is not working at the moment, there is even a recent post about this I beleive. This may be the best place to start as you can easily find out some of what is possible.

The hard part about looking at various resellers' sites is that there is definitely not much offered for the BE/BH. COBB support is borderline fiction, iON is producing parts but the webpage is blanked, etc.

What should probably be done for all of the generations is this: Make a faq of frequently assembled setups. For example, there are a lot of popular spring/strut combos going right now. You want springs? Whiteline? H&R? iON? And which springs need Impreza spring perches? That's just the beginning. All this could be compiled in one place, and instead of telling a rookie to fly off to the search button, we could save him heaps of effort by not having him reinvent the wheel that we've already pioneered.

And this compendium concept is probably what prompted this thread's leading question in the first place.

I've often thought about doing this, and putting it on my site. Which is currently undergoing a renovation, because I had to change servers. But I have more capacity, and larger bandwidth now too.

Of course, I'm obviously going to start with the BD/BG generation, as that's what I drive.

I will say this though: if you get into heavily modifying a Legacy, the info is VERY hard to come by. Vendors just don't know if things fit the Legacy here in the US, because they haven't tried. There are a bunch of parts that do, they just don't know, because it isn't listed specifically for the Legacy. It usually takes a reasonable knowledge of your car to know what will work, or just might work.

Although I may not get around to it for quite some time, feel free to email me with any parts that fit a Legacy that isn't common knowledge. I'll just file it away for when I'm ready.

I did not ask you to post in my Thread, you did it ursef. I did not ask for bashing me in my Thread. If you dont like it just ignore it, dont want to help then ****. Why should I spend hours opon hours searching each and every thread for something I might find usefull? The forums are for posting, so stop whinning.

its not like every ****ing question noobs come up with havent been asked a billion ****ing times. am i an "A hole" for stating the obvious? if you think so, i invite you to grow up and realize the world you live in.
Thnx everyone else, this helped me out a lot. Truly I am looking at prices and items see what works better. Looking through some of the reviews. Planning for my car really.

Here is the plan so far:
COBB CAI
Custom headerback exhast: RSR GTII muffler, test pipe, havent decided on the hearders yet(borlas are cheap, but I heard they are bad)
TWE CAMS Stage II SOHC
better fuel injectors(dono which)
piggyback ECU(have no clue which... apexi?)

Thas it, thinking about suspension.. maybe TIEN also strutbars maybe cusco but thats all later, plust i got a lot of body work to do.

If you guys got any sugestions for parts plz do so, I am new to this site and cars in general and love to do my reaseach before anything.

If you've searched all the sites listed and "can't find what you need" but at the same time aren't telling us "what you need" then you will neither get help from us or apparantly find it by searching.

for the piggyback check out the Perfect Power by Rallitek. Also, search the N/A forum. The RS engine is the same and a lot of the info you would need is in there.

Khan: a lot of Impreza (minus the WRX/STI) parts will work in your car as well as Forester parts.

Differences are:

Impreza struts with stock springs tend to raise your car.
Impreza catback exhausts tend to be short for Legacy wagons
Impreza springs are a bit weak for the heavier Legacy

Other than that, have fun.

Charlie's got it pegged, but we don't sweat that stuff cos the Legacy (including your BE/BH size) has plenty of available suspension parts, and I'm under the impression that some exhaust parts are (albeit uncommon) existent and expanding.

Do ya hear me, Jack?

Try finding a vendors that support the Baja and you'll know what "tough to find" is

Its been trial and error for me. Jack was kind enough to send me a set of the iON Legacy springs to see how they fit on the 2005 Baja, since they are a 1" higher than other Baja's no one is quite sure what Subie did to get that inch. spring? body lift? hopefully I'll find out this week.

It looks at though the Baja-T uses the same parts as the Legacy sedan for the suspension and the same 2.5 T. motor from the FXT & STI. ECU managment looks to have a Baja ROM. 04/05 WRX/STI seats or seat brackets designed for that application fit.
