    Catless header and heavy rasp

    That sounds exactly like something in the exhaust installation zinging against metal. That's not how the TD manifold sounds.

    Well, they work! Unfortunately, the left-hand one (looking at the engine bay) slightly nadgers the bonnet closed switch, so I have to do some bracket bending. I'm sure it'll come out fine but I've duck-taped it for the moment to stop the alarm going off. Photos soon.

    I've just received these bonnet struts from Amazon for the princely sum of £15.55. It took just under a month to arrive, but can't complain. I'll let you know how it goes. No instructions except for a couple of photos on the Amazon page!
  5. One point which may be of interest is that I have my ScanGauge display IAt intake air temperature. Comparing it with outside air temperature shows the effectiveness of the intercooler. On a very hot day, it never runs at more than +20C. Typically (like today), it runs at +15C. Sent from my LG-G7 using Tapatalk

    RIP, Jordan. You were always fun on Facebook and I enjoyed following your posts here. I hope you have found peace now.

    Hi all

    Which head unit did you go for? I ended up with an Eonon and have retained the steering wheel controls and USB socket. Quite a puzzle to get the right adapters and programme the steering wheel learning, though.
  10. Here's my improved torque (green/yellow plots) for the Rogue EL versus the TD UEL (red plot). ECUTeK tune done at Abbey Motorsport. Harrop supercharger, HKS intake duct, TD super-resonated full exhaust.

    Reserved a red GT86 in Wakefield :-)

    If the valve spring recall hasn't been done, insist on it as a condition of purchase.

    Lowering Springs Eibach 35-40mm

    Better watch your front lip!

    Lowering Springs Eibach 35-40mm

    I'm on H&R Super Sports springs with about 35mm lowering, if it helps. I don't have a great deal of clearance with the front lip, I've had to re-tighten it in place about 5 times now!

    We were lucky with the weather, too!

    GR86 Finally Spied

    Sorry, but the FA-20 / 24 has character and a brilliant layout (apart from spark plug access), giving it a low CofG. Thank goodness for Subaru making the only flat 4 left in production. A three-cylinder turbo? What a way to ruin the character of a sports car.
