You should have a stock one unless you removed it.
Do the rears lock up before the front ones do ?
Thereís a stock proportioning valve on the passenger strut tower, but since install the front brakes still have the crosshatch pattern on them where the rears are smooth. Also I should have more brake feel. Iím gonna try one more bleed job and then what? Look for an adjustable proportioning valve?
Also I torqued up the passenger rear lateral link outer bolt that goes through the spindle... drove like a champ today!
Update the car is home in Southern BC now. Drove it 1000 miles to get there, it ran great, found a loose lateral link bolt in the rear that was the cause of the weird driving feel.
Made it to a Kelowna car meet and a few guys were snapping pics, itís great to be driving it finally. Entered it into the All Japanese Classic car show in Vancouver Aug 26. Guys think I have a good chance of winning. Iíll just be happy to have it there. More pics of that later. For now hereís a couple of the ones taken at the Kelowna meet.
Itís running great, the drop in Manley pistons donít make any noise. Itís got a ton more power on the top end and it sounds like a proper Suby should. A little louder that I want especially when I step into it but maybe Iíll put a resonator or a Cat pipe in the exhaust before it gets tuned.
Iíll have some more pics at the end of the month when I come home from Vancouver. I wanted to get a cut and polish before the AJC show but it doesnít look like that will happen. Iím just too rural and gone away too much, the show is a couple days after I get home. Gotta spend time with the kids first!
I installed cruise in the car with a factory unit from the junkyard. It was all wired in but it wouldnít work. Not sure why. Anyone know if the circuit board units are specific to a manual or auto trans?? The unit I grabbed was from an Auto SF Forester along with the wheel mounted control switch.
With all the tall evergreens around both places I keep the car I gotta modify my car cover to keep the tree spluge off the paint. That crap is horrible
Had some good road trips with the Impreza this summer. Went to Vancouver BC Aug 26th for the All Japanese Classic Car show. Lots of gorgeous imports there. The car didnt win anything lol. The Mint SVX next to me won Best Classic Subaru, I haven't had a chance to get the paint corrected yet, so its still a bit of a 6' car. Still had alot of fun at the show, met up with a Forester club while I was there and got to alot more of Vancouver than I have before.
Waiting in line for the Ferry to go back to the mainland from The Sunshine Coast BC
Car is running very well. This month I had a Dyno appointment in Kelowna during a promotional day at the local tuning shop. The power was better than I expected! 283WHP/295WTQ and it hasn't been tuned yet, still running about 11psi max (180kpa Absolute pressure) so theres still alot of leftovers on the table. Saw a few other cars hit the Dyno that day too, alot of fun. A newer tuned Golf GTI hit 260WHP/390WTQ! I was blown away by the torque that thing makes.
The 18s are getting pretty bald now and driving home in the rain for 2 hrs was pretty sketchy, the Ass end was all over the place, not something I enjoy so I picked some new all seasons for the 16" rims for a song. Gonna put those on very soon here if i have to run the car over the winter it will be driveable. Checking the Odometer and I've put over 5000kms on the car since driving it home. nothing planned for a long time, just maintaining it. Maybe next year if its ready I'll put it on the new Area 27 track for a day.
