WTB (North Idaho) : Front Turn Signal Socket, 93' SS

As the title states, I'm looking for a front turn signal socket for my 93' SS. My current one has a short somewhere in the socket and is causing rapid blinker syndrome and prevents the front left turn signal from working. The aftermarket support is woefully inadequate and so I'm looking at used OEM....

Re: Used 16x7, ET+48, Advan TC with RS-3 rubber, $500

I can't believe these haven't moved - dropping down to $400. This is a screaming deal for such nice rims.

I'm moving in a few months and would love to have these gone.

Re: Used 16x7, ET+48, Advan TC with RS-3 rubber, $600

Yep, they sure are :). They have been awesome rims for me and I had a really, really, really hard time moving away from them. But I also wanted new rubber for this season and the RS-3's have been discontinued and I could only get new ones in a 17in. But having gotten used to a high performance rim I...

North Idaho - 16x7, ET+48, Advan TC with RS-3, SOLD

I recently upgraded to some 17x7's and I no longer need these. They are 16x7 Advan TC rims with a +48 offset. They are used and there is some curbage as can be seen in the pictures. That said, they balance and hold air just fine and I've had them on my track/daily for close to 7 years or so (I bough...

FS: 2.5 SOHC Heads, Intake, $300

For a while I was working on going down the road of going to a 2.5 setup in my legacy and had been acquiring parts. Since then, I've started going a different route and I think it's time to start really purging more of my subi stock. Therefore, I have a set of 2.5 SOHC heads and manifold to get rid ...

Re: EJ25D w/ EJ22E Heads, Headgasket Question

Regarding the comp ratio - you may very well be right Todd. I'll be honest that it's been too long since I had my head in the CR game and was crisp but what you are saying rings a fair bell. I do remember calculating it higher than stock but I did chose the turbo block explicitly to reduce the ratio...

Re: EJ25D w/ EJ22E Heads, Headgasket Question

Todd, The low end on the new motor is fairly snappy. When I build the motor I want to say the comp ration was 11:1-ish. Not quite as high as the typical high comp NA motors but high enough that I run premium. I get about 22mpg around town and haven't had it on the highway recently to give highway nu...

Re: EJ25D w/ EJ22E Heads, Headgasket Question

I figured I'd just follow up with everyone on the path I ended up choosing. I decided that I didn't have much extra time to be swapping heads, water pumps, oil pumps, etc over to the old short block. Therefore, I decided it was more responsible of me to just drop in the whole EJ257/EJ22E engine setu...

Wow, I feel like it's been a long time since I've been on the BBS in a personal manner other than to thin the garage. It's great to see that some of the 'old' names are still around and active, or active again. That said, I'm going to jump right into my question - after my disclaimer. Disclaimer - I...

Re: Winter Cleanout

Speezly - shipping the radiator is a little harsh at $45 but that's the cheapest I could find to ship it. The Grp N strut tops will be $13 in a flat rate box. Please let me know if I can help any further.

4.11 5MT, Rebuilt, all new OEM (except gears/synchros)

I'm selling my rebuilt transmission that originally came out of my NA 2.2L 96’ Outback. I rebuilt the transmission and then less than a 1,000mi later the car got crunched. The frame was bent and the car was a loss. It was a sad story... I rebuilt the tranny as part of a 2.5/2.2 frankenmotor swap wit...
