Without seeing the car in person I would say that your front guards have already had the treatment. The rear looks like it's been trimmed a little, and the front the big bit with stone protection removed. The rear wheels shouldn't need anything. Sorry if i confused you talking about front and rear i...

just reading BrumbysKid sign ature - a race engine ? and truck tyres ? Race engine? Lol I wish. The only thing that's race about it is the way I thrash it. Well almost. What's been done to it and continuing to be done could be considered a race engine. Probably the most race like EA81 out there exc...

Yes there is a need for either cutting OR rolling the guards and fun with a hammer. It's not much but the rear needs a bit of a hammer out, unless you are going to do the radius rod modification to push the wheels forward more. Then there is the front (even without the above). A mate just cut off th...

The shackles you use now have to be rated... I know that much

Which U-Pull-it did you go to? I'm assuming Gillman. Anything interesting there? Lonsdale is kinda boring at the moment.

Just needs to be engineered by someone, or go over the pits at regency. Either will work as long as the modifications have been done properly. So best bet is to take it to your local dodgy engineer ;) Oh how I wish I lived in Qld for that

The rear trailing bush is where the swing arms pivot freely on the torsion bar. Originally Press fit, but come as a split bush with crush tubes. The kit listed above is WRONG! Turns out you actually need the front Lower control arm kit (SPF1097K). Just remove the old bush including outer tube, then ...

Precisely! However eastern states may have to go over the pits yearly for RWC but i'm sure they know how to get away with illegal mods haha. No officer I don't have a perma-shim LSD, I just broke a shaft and haven't been able to replace it yet... Or my favorite for most mods like HID's, Sorry sir, d...

The thing everyone is forgetting about is the likely hood of your Subaru getting pulled over and a cop checking your hubs for this/ realizing whats been done and that it's illegal. Unless your driving like a dick/ something obvious for them to defect you, the only way you will get picked up is when ...

I dont think Penrite has done itself any favours by labelling that recommended oil "diesel" when it is the recommended oil for older reconditioned petrol engines....just sayin'. It's labelled diesel due to the diesel detergent in it, meaning it is suitable for diesel. Diesel oil is ok for diesel an...

Not that hard, Tweety did single point FI.
Just depends on how many sensors you want and if you can find/ get someone to write a decent code for you.
So whats that extra pulley for? Power steering?

Wheel nuts not done up tight (you would be suprised) Or my favourite, which caused this problem for me was the mechanic not doing the castle nut up tight enough on the CV. Was pissing me off, and thought my whole hub was going to have to come off. Started to take everything off the front left until ...
