  1. Greetings, I had heard that at one point in time a company had made tuner chips for the ECU on an EA82T engine on the turbo XTs. Anyone know where I could acquire such a tuner chip? Or if there are any new tuner chips that the ECU in a XT Turbo would accept? Thanks.
  2. Hi there Subaru lovers! I have an old XT 1987 and it is giving me grief! I have just installed knock sensor and thermal sensor, but I found a leak on the distributor, I changed the O-ring, disassembled the whole thing and it still leaks, I saw it's not from the O ring but maybe from some the little holes on the distributor's body ? Has any body had this issue before? Help please! Dave
  3. I must be blind or stupid, but I can't find my fuel pump relay. Nor can I find the location listed anywhere on here or the Internet. So, I turn to my fellow Subaruians, anyone know where the bastard's hiding? I need to replace him. Also, the 85/86 XT's are unique in their wiring setups, at least according to my craptastic Chilton manual. And even more-so because it's a bloody turbo. So, anyone have any ideas? Every location has been checked aside from putting the car on a lift and scouring the underside. Also, it specifies the relay sits between the EGR valve and the fuel pump in the wiring harness. This may or may not help depending on if anyone's torn down a harness or not. Twitch
  4. You could say I lucked out on this local craigslist find. 71k miles, rust, scratchless, spotless interior, all original and all electronics working flawlessly, 1986 front-wheel drive automatic XT Turbo. I'm a complete novice when it comes to modifications, but I want to upgrade the audio.....Replace the tape deck/am/fm unit with a modern deck, replace speakers, install small sub and amp. The sound system is complete crap. Anybody have experience upgrading these components in an XT? Any advice would be extremely helpful. Love my first subaru!
  5. So, as some of you may know, I just got my first snail. So I'm sure all of you are dying to see pictures of it. So here you go. Now that the picture show is over, I'll relay the details. Just rolled it over 159k, one owner, driven, but not abused most of its life, completely loaded with options (even has an aftermarket tape deck installed), sunroof doesn't leak (not inside anyway) interior is clean and decent shape, still has the sunroof carrying bag (never been used, still smells like formaldehyde/treatment chemicals), slight leak in the trunk that needs to be hunted down, and rust spots in the sunroof that need to be taken care of. But otherwise the thing look pretty much pristine. If anyone has a blue dash surround (the part that has the vents attached), I need a new one (previous owner smacked the dash and broke it). And an AC cover button. Mine is broke and refuses to stay on. But so far, so good. Needs a tune-up (NGK wires and plugs to kill a misfire issue) but otherwise it runs like a little monster with a screaming glowing snail from hell attached to it Twitch PS: And the AC will damn near freeze you out of the car
