Question: hi alan, subaru\'s again ! is there any hp or tuning difference between the impreza turbo saloon and estate ? someone told me that the estate has a smaller turbo ? also what\'s your tuning opinion on the subaru legacy single turbo, say L or M reg ? see you at street wars, cheers, matt
Answer: Hi Matt- You can pretty much treat a Legacy like an Impreza, although certain tuning options, parts mainly, can be a bit more tricky. We have an L reg Legacy in the shop as we speak, it runs a Simtek ECU and we expect it to really go! The 5 door Impreza usually comes with a smaller turbo, although that isn't all bad news, as they can fly from the off.

Question: this will be an unusual one for ya. i lost the back end takin a slight bend at about 30mph in the dry. and wrecked my r33gtst. its nearly fixed lol. just realised the importer i bought it of changed the clocks from kph to mph. would doing this cause a problem with my hicas( 4 wheel steer system).he also put coilovers in it.the tires are brand new 265s on the rear!! my warranty is nearly up and i wanna see if i have a case against the guy. its cost me over 3k to fix the fker.dont laugh too much... great site btw
Answer: Hi Marc - You aren't the first to lose a 2wd Skyline and you won't be the last! In all honesty, most of it is because most drivers these days are brought up on front wheel drive... Being an old fart, tail out comes as second nature to me! The Hicas wouldn't be effected by the speedo or the coil overs, although the rear geometry may well be out. any hint of toe out on the rear can make for evil handling, so I'd get it down to your local tyre place pronto, and get them to check the wheel alignment all round.

Question: hi, ive got a r33 nissan skyline gtst. ive got a rising rate fuel reg from an old project car which i wanna fit, i was hoping to fit it and crank the boost up. was wondering what the idle fuel pressure should be and how much boost could i sensibly squeeze outta this beast(standard engine). theres only 40k miles on it. if i d-cat it does it affect my emissions for mot, kind regards. ps, im a qualified diagnostic toyota technician in belfast how much of a salary should i be squeezin outta my tight arsed manager lol. :)
Answer: I'd say you should get just enough out of him to pay for a rolling road session, as that's what you need! Best to set these up on a dyno, and that's all there is to it. I certainly wouldn't go over 1 bar boost on a standard turbo, and preferably just a bit less, say .9 bar.
