  1. Last week
  2. my car can last near 2 weeks but then loses it very quickly then. Even with tracker disconnected. i normally just disconnect battery if over a week, will last 6+ months then. Tony also have same coditioner as Don, but happier not leaving charging on
  3. Yeah. That's right. I think the white car looks like the one Quay vehicle solutions sold last year. If it is the same car...(Mileage and other things match).. it has the Forester badge on, looks like both in the right place.
  4. I've just a HALFORDS own brand, plug in one, about ยฃ30. This is the newer style https://www.halfords.com/motoring/battery-maintenance/battery-chargers/halfords-6v%2F12v-maintenance-charger-329091.html?cm_mmc=Google+PLA-_-{@@Category}-_-{@@SubCategory}-_-329091&istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istFeedId=62b447cf-331e-4fec-a47a-9985ff72d404&istItemId=xrramiip&istBid=tztt&_$ja=tsid:94971|cid:8979078122|agid:94446539727|tid:aud-80976661069:pla-329023466368|crid:412800843095|nw:g|rnd:11265757704504300651|dvc:c|adp:|mt:|loc:9046397&gclid=Cj0KCQjwyPbzBRDsARIsAFh15JaiMGOgB2f5x8kIYqviPWH0DoFM_J0QQGfjrBfyFMPwLAbEYDagO6kaAuF8EALw_wcB had it ages, no problems.... charges up.. keeps it maintained. no need to spend any more. I've hard wired it on the battery and just plug and play when needed. may car won't go more than 2 weeks not plugged in lol
  5. With the current restrictions my WRX STi is going to be standing around for some time as I have to work from home and we are being discouraged from going anywhere other than essential journeys, not to mention the imposition of a 40mph speed limit where I live. Last time I went away for 2 weeks the battery went flat. Any recommendations for a trickle charger or battery conditioner? I can run a cable across the lane or else maybe a solar one as where it stands faces South and gets a lot of sun. Thanks
  6. looking on AT, and saw this.... https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202002117194319?advertising-location=at_cars&model=FORESTER&make=SUBARU&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&postcode=ng43nh&radius=1501&sort=relevance&page=1 All reads well and looks good.... apart from the missing Cross Sports Badge on the grille... and the Cross Sport Badge on the boots looks a it high up (might have had a prang on the rear?) It's the Part Service history.... would could that mean??? TIA.
  7. Earlier
  8. Welcome to the Club. As said above a lovely car. looks very much like my very first scooby, although mime was T888. very low miles and std very rare to find a 12 year old classic thats not driven through hellfrauds with the bling magnet on full Tony
  9. Welcome to the SIDC Chris. Thatโ€™s one tidy Classic ๐Ÿ‘Œ
  10. Hi guys, new to this forum. I'm the proud owner of a Turbo 2000. I've owned it since January so I'm still new to Subaru ownership. It's a great example with just 38,000 miles on the clock. I've done a few maintenance bits already and this month I'm planning on getting the wheels refurbished (in standard silver of course) I feel somebody may know this vehicle on here already though. It has an SIDC sticker in the rear window.... Chris
  11. see post 6 by bonesetter https://www.scoobynet.com/suspension-12/918196-geometry-settings.html#post10398355 you see top settings are fast road on a classic the bottom one is newage but more track orientated

  13. Hello after some advice if possible. I purchased a jdm hawkeye and it's surposed to be mapped by Andy forrest. Iv emailed him and he said if he's mapped it will have launch control mapped into it. Iv now messaged him again to ask how to turn it on and iv had no response at all. Could anyone shed some light on how to turn it on thanks very much
  14. okay, if no leaks found, and parts are good, looking for something not obvious. hard to tell which route to go without seeing car. it does sound like decribe when anti lag or launch control engaged. trying to boost when stationary!! overfeulling!! By the way, when reving engine car stationary, you should not pull/see any boost, only vacuum. If you do, thats the fault, turbo boost actuator fault , boost soleniod pipes wrong way or relay normily open and closed (vise versa) pull relay, see if runs smooth statically. i would try and prove boost actuator, as above near imposble to do stationary, unless you frig bost relay. 1) boost actuator, it maybe not working properly, put pipe on actuator suck very hard and see if moves okay, think towards the windscreen a) Turbo actutor Not adjusted right, or sometimes original pipe have a restrictor, brass pin with small hole through and lost in pipe replacements. b) leaks pipes on wrong way round. C) closing two early or too late and incorrect fueling. Opening when stationary. 2) common dump valves a) inspect, you could test blank off but thats VERY Dodgy, dont go over 4Krpm or kill engine. 3) ECU Temp sensor, running with choke on. 4) Fit first exhaut sensor 5) 2 injectors, dribbling but unlikey. hope this helps. Tony ps we are enthusiasts trying to help, we are not mechanics and not aware of your capability
  15. does your engine symbol amber fault light go on when ignition is switch on, then go off once starts up? โ€”โ€”โ€” Yes, engine light comes on then goes off as it should did it do this from day you bought it? โ€”โ€”โ€”yes it has done have you fitted exhuast or induction to it? โ€”โ€”โ€” the car has an exhaust, front mount Intercooler, โ€œinduction kitโ€, silicone hoses has the car been remapped? not sure if that year can be!! โ€”โ€”โ€” from research it appears it CAN be remappped but I donโ€™t believe it has been have you any fault ECU codes? โ€”โ€”โ€” had a MAF fault code, new GENUINE MAF fitted and code cleared most common issues are air leaks have you an atmosperic dump valve. โ€”โ€”โ€” yes, due to front mount Intercooler check all vacuum pipes for cracks/leaks check all boost pipes for leaks & splits swop 2 injectors two other sensors can play up, the temperature sensor for ECU, not the one for gauge. can run like choke fully on. okay ish when very cold but much worse when warm and the exhaust sensor, runs closed loop with no throttle and correct burn from exhaust sensor. when throttle put down open loop, burn controlled by Program Map.

  17. Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.
  18. Good evening, I have recently purchased an Impreza STI V5 but it has some running issues. Hot or cold it appears to be running on number 1+3 cylinders on low rpm, if you rev through this then it seems to โ€œclearโ€ whilst the revs are high. It does splutter getting up there though. I have tried new plugs, new HT leads, new MAF and new coil. I have compression tested and all seems fine. any ideas? cheers
  19. Welcome ๐Ÿ‘ looks like your going to have some great fun....
  20. As you say, lots more choice but sadly they are, has beens. A lot of specialist moved on to the new kids on the block i put a 6x4 magnex on my bugeye Sti i was so impressed. but later replaced when PPP can out for it. Tony
  21. Yes had some 17" bk299s gold and silver on a type r and full decal kit, it, looked absolutely brilliant and stood out from the rest but that was 15 year ago and there's all sorts knocking about now from matt black to rainbow bright and a good looking rally spec to volkswagen silly spread tyres and grounded which I think ruins them but that's my opinion ๐Ÿ‘
  22. Welcome to the SIDC Matt. Nice looking WRX.
  23. Thank you and exactly that, canโ€™t wait to find a tunnel soon haha
  24. lovelly Car, its not how fast they go, its all about the rumble
  25. Hey SIDC, picked up my first Subaru Tuesday after years of thinking should I or shouldnโ€™t I! Got an 03 wrx and itโ€™s been great fun already and by weds lunchtime Iโ€™d picked up a back box and got it on so it rumbles properly ๐Ÿ‘ Matt
