    first removed wheel spacers because rear tire doesnt fit into arch with full flex , so i thought maybe i could do without spacers , but no because then rear tire goes into spring when its gets into air , so thats not working, put spacers back again and bended some of rear fender metal side that was kinda sticking there and even cut tire some when it was flexing and going into arch , so hopefully now that will fit without damage to tire or fenders in rear those rear extra reverse led lights works just amazing its not off road rear lights level but its much better now to going in dark in forests between trees and such places, i can see now there when reversing VDC working great with TC off, just goes tried to fix my LPG injectors. they not so complicated , looked for info and now they work better on LPG car goes better
  4. good info thanks. yeah i maybe had one bad coil there, and coils i thinks are same on all H6 engines there. what about air filter what you did with that to protect so you could pass deeper waters , or what you would do to it ? dont remembr maybe you talked about it here too , if so i will look for it .
  5. Cool stuff. Bit by bit soon youll have it in full excosceleton. With your h6 engine how you protected it from water splashes and such from bottom as those ignition coils are so low. How you sealed air box, or made new one? What most parts there that could be affected damaged by water in your opinion? I got cilinder misfirer after crossing deeper mud waters ,, so i changed that one coil , but how to protect those parts from water as they so low there.

    so 1.1.2020 , year started great. still no mud no wet or snow, but still great start
  12. looks good and strong. its good knowledge too for like other car who would want to use long travels so you can make those parts that cracks most on your cars as put extra layers of metal there from begining and make those parts stronger , would be good idea is it ? prevent that from cracking . i remember for some old cars they had like rally kits with some extra metal parts that needed be welded on car so it can take part of rally racing . something like that should be done from beginning on non rusty car so it would hold for longer dont you think ? maybe i missed some parts on your build , when you put long travel suspension , so for it to have that long travel up and down you needed to change those bushings didnt you ? because oem bushings wont let those links move much up and down ?

    The Unofficial "How to Lift your Impreza" Thread

    i think forester struts all ready lifted you about 2 inches, so its not good to do more just on struts, so yes more then 2-3'' lift then you do on subframe and other parts , and still real diff lift stays on 2'' . do you really need more ?
