If you can find me a set, would buy! I want to get an Outback front bumper for it too, but that I can find locally.
Yeah easy. Next time I'm at the wreckers I can find out how much they'll be. I'd guess 60-90 AUD (40-60 USD).

You wouldn't want an AUDM outback bumper anyway as we have the flaring on the fenders and that continues on the bumpers

Sounds like a fair price, lemme know when you find a clean set! I know shipping will be the worst part, haha

Put an air filter and bov on the impreza. It was actually kind of fun to drive it without gauges, nothing to stress about... just drive! But getting it warm did prove it has excessive blowby, none of the cylinders sound weak, so not sure if ringlands or something else..

I haven't done much with the car other than drive it, the emanage comes out every time as my antitheft for now, even if it's just a quick run in to the store, they can tow it away but it won't drive!


I'm totally taken aback by how good it runs and drives not having the greddy 3 bar map and AFR signals piped in to it. I have no idea what the fuel trims and such are but it runs, drives, and boosts great! I've probably put 1.5 tanks of gas through it and still has not shown a CEL. It would be clockwork prior to the theft, on the second drive cycle the P0136 for my rear O2 circuit would come up. I remember taking out the spacer to see if that was the issue before it was stolen, which it wasn't, and the car has no catalysts so at the very least I should be getting a P0420.


So right now the car is boosted with the bare minimum, no timing adjustment on wastegate pressure and it's happy as a clam.

HAH. No, not in the slightest. The thief allowed me to see the car in another way by removing the AFR and MAP sensor inputs to the emanage. Admittedly I have plugged the greddy map in to the emanage and the car basically refuses to run when I do, soon as I unplug the greddy map the car evens out and is happy. I have all the boost cells at 0 in the emanage so extra fueling in boost is being done by the factory ECM and the 1:1 FPR. I may get motivated enough to warm it up and do a compression test on it, I've literally done nothing to it since it was stolen, haha.

The Legacy has had two alternators, the first replacement had a bad bearing, rear pads and rotors, and a power steering rack assembly is on the way, LOL.

The greddy map sensor i had bought was used, so it was probably bad the whole time and why i couldn't get it tuned well enough and almost always ended up with cells hitting 100. I'm going to order a vagcom cable today so I can monitor fuel trims and see what it's actually up to. It did finally trigger a CEL, P1112, which is related to the MAP. May not have the map clamp at the right voltage.
