Talking Exciting news about fender plug!!!

OK, it's really not that exciting, but I figured I'd let everyone know anyway. If you've removed your intake silencer, leaving a hole in the inner fender just forward of the airbox, you can plug that with a Subaru piece. It's from the 2000 2.5RS, which has a different intake routing.

P/N is 46059FA000. Suprisingly enough, it's pretty cheap - only $5.40 or something like that. An insignificant little piece, but it kinda cleans things up a bit in the engine compartment.

Just installed mine a week ago. I like the little plastic tabs that hold it in place. Haven't noticed any difference, but then again, I really didn't expect to. It does plug up that hole quite well, though.

Good Lord, you guys certainly revived an old thread! That's gotta be some kind of record - 27 months from initial post to first reply.

As for the plug fitting in the fender, on both my '97 and my '99 the thing snapped into place in about half a second. You do realize that it's not a uniform shape, right? It's not a perfect rectangle so it only fits in one direction.

I used duct tape.

$5.40 is enough to buy one quart of synthetic oil to go towards my next oil change. Must maintain function over form.

I also have this huge ass dent on my right fender. More like the fender is flared in rather than out.

I thought I posted that last year? I put one in my wife's legacy and they fit the WRX too. I think I have that info somewhere on our scoobymods site.

It's entirely possible that I got the idea from you, Peaty. Note the date of my original post - March 2000! The fact that the plug fits is not a new discovery, somebody just rediscovered this thread after 27 months.

Yikes, I didn't realize the post was that old

We need more mods for the legacy

I'd do more to ours but it's my wife's daily driver and she dosen't want me to do a lot of stuff to it. I did debadge most everything slowly over a month though so she wouldn't notice

Default 27 months must be a record.

...but in this case I'm glad someone else found the old one. Apologize in advance for the post snatch, but Peaty, noticed that you used the existing air filter box instead of a cone filter in the fenderwell. Getting rid of the snorkus makes sense but I guess I didn't think about keeping the filter box. Any thoughts on that? Was it just to keep the rigidity of the existing MAF mount, convenience, equal or better air flow etc. And where did you get the connector pipe from the filter to the torque box? Are you using a new panel filter (i.e., K&N) or the stock filter.

Br, Dale

Dale,

The MY 99' RS is prone to MAF problems I originally had a very solid mount cone filter and I tried to make it grab cold air. I did some under hood temps and saw that it was best to get air from the fender.

http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/sho...=&threadid=179

I always kept the second airbox but replaced the filter I had in there with a gasket. The air box keeps air pulses from backing up to the MAF plus it acts as a plenum reservoir for air helping w/ low end. I'm still trying to find a way to get the inlet to the second box up to 3" that will work well. It's the smallest restriction in the system. I went back to the stock box w/ a K&N for 2 reasons. I could guarantee I got cold air from the fender and I didn't want to press my luck on the MAF. Even though the cone never did give me MAF problems, I didn't notice any diff w/ the K&N panel to the cone.

Look here too:

Thanks Peaty,

I'll try to get ahold of PRM this week to see what if anything they have in stock. In the mean time I'll see if SubaruParts.com has the fend blocks in stock too. Hopefully, I can get this done to both GTs within the month. BTW - your pictures and descriptions are superb!

subaruparts.com should have them in stock as I recently ordered a couple a few weeks ago. They're nice and cheap at under $2. The $8 shipping isn't the best though, so be sure to order some for your friends as well.

When I only need a cheap small part I usually order some oil plug washers and some oil filters to make it worth while. I usually get my stuff from Lisa Wilkens (AKA Sugar) though, her prices are usually a little lower than Subaruparts.com. Plus I've been ordering stuff from her since 97 and she's always treated me pretty good.
