Re: Dankberries STi s209

Congrats on nabbing one. Not asking for $$, but did the dealer add a healthy profit to the sticker? Kinda like when anything rare 1st comes out. Ford dealers are notorious from what I've read. Also, does that paint protection film actually work if applied on the lower portions? Most of the the deal...

Re: Dankberries STi s209

Its like owning the next generation 22B except even more rare at 209 units vs. 424 . The 22B sold for a little over $40k new in 1998. Today it's selling, in some instances, around $150k. Interesting fact, the s209 was originally slated to be called the 25B, and was badged as so on prototypes, but la...

Re: Dankberries STi s209

What are your plans with the car? Are you going to just drive it on certain occasions or will it be your primary means of transportation? Honestly having mixed emotions about it. I thought at first I'd use it as a main mean of transportation, mostly summer time. Though after the little driving I've...

Re: Dankberries STi s209

That is really cool! Can you compare/contrast it to your 2019 Limited? I haven't had enough seat time to give a detailed answer. I'm also trying to take it easy for a bit (low boost, low revs) on the new motor. I can say right out the bat it's VERY responsive. Wow can you feel every bit of the road...

Re: Joe's 93 RHD Legacy Wagon Build

If you are running a manual transmission I don't think it should be an issue having nothing connected to B48.20.

Jumper pins 11 & 12 on the b15 trans connector. Not 1&4.

The 4 pin connector is likely for reverse lights.

Re: Dankberries 1993 Impreza ej23t/25d build

April 2017 The Impreza started loosing oil pressure. Found metal in the oil and proceeded for a rebuild. During the tare down of the motor I discovered 4 oil pump rotor plate screws had backed out substantially. I believe the Motor met it's fate to loosing pressure at the pump(note: that was a new ...

Re: Subaru rear LSD types Discussion

see my edited comment. The WRX sedan and STI have widetrack, so ignore those cars & axles. You're making this more complicated than it has to be. :-D So grab 2nd gen Legacy axles, they bolt in to a WRX-compatible diff, and work with your hubs. Ok, lol .. Thanks man. I have a snow rally race at the ...

Re: Subaru rear LSD types Discussion

All will work, and left and right are interchangeable. Splines are the same. There's a slight length difference between left and right for pretty much all rear subaru axles, not enough to cause bad things to happen. interesting... Some of my research is showing a 10mm difference. Thats for the 2nd ...

Re: Subaru rear LSD types Discussion

In order to get the right one with axles that are commonly available, you could order the diff that fits an 02-07 WRX, that is the type that 2nd gen Legacy axles fit. WRX sedan rear axles have the same spline count as the aforementioned legacy ones, but are different lengths. Can be made to fit if ...

Re: Subaru rear LSD types Discussion

As far as axles, most likely you'll have to use the newer style male-to-male axles (from a 2nd gen Legacy) Ok, so it seems the main issue of axles is different spline count and lengths. This might explain why Cusco lists different parts #'s for different years, I believe I saw 3 different #'s for t...

Question for those who have done a COP swap, do you have to plug anything in where the ignitor used to go? No. At this point you have eliminated any need for the ignitor.
