Did you ever get this sorted out? Coil pack maybe?

@eastbaysubaru: The problem got better as winter went on, I plan on getting my grounds checked for that car soon as well to help with electricity flow. Appreciate the concern thanks!

No problem. Having just gone through some hesitation/stuttering issues myself, and seeing as you're another BRP GM6 owner, I'd like to lend what assistance I can. I replaced a few other things (plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, PCV valve, alternator) at the same time as the coil pack and I also cleaned up all of the factory grounds in the engine compartment. Car's running like a champ now. Good luck!

Awesome, glad to hear the cars running good. If the issue happens again I think PVC valve and coil pack would be a good idea to replace. Best of luck on your build as well!

Default Late spring update

Have had a lot going on with school/work/life, but over the last month or two I was able to get some things taken care of.

-Tire re balance, alignment, 2 new serpentine belts, oil change and filter, complete E brake repair, right front blinker light, license plate light bulb, passing inspection sticker.

April 2014:



More plans as soon as I can afford them, keep on chugging RS25!

Default General update.

Been having a lot of fun driving the car, especially with full working AC this summer. Had a loan denied last month, so things like paint and quarter rust have been pushed back again. (broke college kid problems) Front brakes have been done recently, still needs attention to the rear rotors, and a couple other small parts. It's currently sitting at 158.2k miles. Despite some small issues, it still handles great and keeps me going.

I've been busy with work and school. Changed front brake calipers and rotors, bled brakes too also new fuel filter and new battery. I have drums in the back, ugh. Still saving for rims after that suspension. Love my subie though it looks crappy right now.
