Where did the ss fall in the hierarchy

I got to wondering where the ss fit into things as far as the Legacy line. Was it the top of the line or was the more luxury lsi with an auto more money. I am kind of thinking the lsi was more. Anyone know for sure?

WD 40 for iac?

I see a lot about seafoam to clean the iac, but what do you guys think of just using wd-40? It is an awful good cleaner and I have a lot of it. Interested to see what people have to say.

Re: ecu grounding

I though about going to that spot on the manifold, but it was so easy going to the empty bolt hole on the passenger side front of the manifold. Last time I got to the ground point on the manifold it was kind of a pain if I remember correctly.

Re: ecu grounding

Just as an aside to this. I ran a 14ga ground from the battery to the pivot bolt on the alternator and then another from the pivot bolt to the intake manifold. I'm getting much better charging now and the needle is steady instead of jumping around. I feel the car is running smoother and pulling bett...

ecu grounding

Just a little tip I got from a motorcycle forum that would possibly help our cars. It involves splicing into the ground for the ecu and running a dedicated ground back to the battery. One way to check if this could be of benefit is if there is voltage on that ground while running at an idle and also...

Re: Boost cutting out

I would look at your bypass valve. For the longest time I didn't know mine was stuck open, I just thought that was the way the car ran. Didn't have a boost gauge at the time. One day it suddenly ran a lot better and then went back to the way it had been running. New bypass valve and it runs good all...

Re: Fuel cut after 25% throttle??

My car did pretty much what you are describing and I found the hose off the boost solenoid if I remember right. It was on the passenger strut tower with oll those other electronic devices. You couldn't give it much throttle at all or it would just die.

Re: Cars been sitting for a while... Clutch won't release

You might try starting it with the car in gear and the clutch pushed in. That might break it loose. Be ready to shut it off if it does start and the clutch doesn't release or kill it with the brakes. Motorcycles are bad about the wet multiplate clutches sticking, but I don't recall hearing this abou...

Re: subaru legacy turbo coffee cup mod WTB

The coffee cup mod will not fix the 90 degree elbow problem. If it's bad you will need a new one. The coffee cup mod just replaces the resonator that is in the intake between the maf and the 90 degree elbow. Measure the length of the resonator to get the length you will need.

Re: WTB: 91 legacy sedan tail light center trim

Thanks for reminding me. It was well buried, but I did find it. It is in very good shape save one spot on the bottom edge where it was impacted, but not broken through. Kind of a spiderwebed spot about 1/2 inch in diameter.

Re: mostly complete 91 ss

In case it comes to the pick and pull option, I would just like to see the ss special parts be saved for someone here in the community. Less and less of these around and the bumper and hood are 1 yr only parts. Then you have the diff and rear brakes.
I just hate to see these things go away.

Re: 91 SS to RSRA Spec bare shell complete restoration/build

Bikes have been using wasted spark ignition for since the 70's and they turn a lot more rpm than that and there were boosted bikes in the early 80's with that ignition setup. I would say that bad reputation has no basis in fact.

Re: 93 Legacy Startup Issues

I would start with the contacts in the starter solenoid. A good cleaning may help, but you may need to rebuild it. That's what it sounds like to me.

Re: Chirp chirp chirp what could it be??

Sounds like you have some metal rubbing together somewhere. Since it looks like it does it sitting there idling you could get the front end up in the air and climb around underneath and maybe close in on it's location.
