The lift and oil change are definitely worth it. What kind of turbo are you looking for?


Oh for sure. Theres a a fair amount of pretty expensive exotics stored there too, pretty cool to see whats there week to week. Theres a Renault 5 Turbo there that i cant stop ogling.

Jimbos the person looking for a turbo to replace his VF10. different posts ;)

Where is this Autocross, scruff? I've always wanted to go and participate at one. I volunteered at an Autocross at dirtfish's property last year and it looked crazy fun

Evergreen Speedway! Went last month with my buddy whos been doing it for years, theres a 75 person cap (so registration fills up in a few hours after it opens) but they usually announce a few days prior so it isnt hard to get in if you sign up within a few hours of it opening up.

Lots of runs, people arent super competitive, and you dont have to work the course, so its a pretty good one from what ive heard :)

you should definitely come out sometime! planning to go regularly, really want to give the newer WRX/STis the whats what ;)

If there's gonna be a little autocross meet up in Monroe I'm def down to go as well. I've drag raced there for years but never did the autocross. Looks fun.

Could certainly make a meetup thread. Schedule is - https://evergreenspeedway.com/category/autocross/

Planning on being at every Sunday event since I work Saturdays.

On topic- took off my Hitachi MAF referencing this thread by NICO - viewtopic.php?t=26571

Didnt see any 2 screws when i took it off... decided to just upgrade to a JECS maf and adjust my fuel to compensate, should pick it up Monday.

Hahaha doubt ill be able to do that with SOHC heads, but hopefully itll fix the boost issue i've been having.

Talked to one of our techs and he did something pretty similar to get more boost out of an All-Trac Celica he used to have. Turns out something along those lines is pretty common for these old MAFs when youre hitting that boost wall. Looking at old threads on here, modifying these old Legacys with the stock ECU hits a wall around 10PSI when the MAF maxes out. right now even with the EBC boost maxes around 10-12psi no matter what and overboosts up to,.. forever unless i let off the throttle (around 20psi i call it quits so i dont ruin my turbo). my goal is to hold it around 18.

I'll take some pictures and post up a thread in the appropriate section when I take it apart. Looks like I have to separate the plastic and metal where theyre sealed together with silicone. Not really planning on doing it before I autocross just in case I ruin it.
