  1. I bought a 02 wrx wagon from a friend of mine. Loving it so far. Does anyone have any recommendations or tips? Still kind of cash poor but i could do stuff over time. Parts list. (Not sure if 100% accurate.) sti block. Forged pistons. 32 way Godspeed coils. Stock bov capped to vent to atmosphere . No name axleback exhaust can. 05 legacy gt 5 spd tranny. It has a rebuilt title and supposidly only 30,000 on the motor. 155,000 on the body. I paid 4100$ Thanks guys! this is my first new gen subaru. Cheers!
  2. I think I am almost there to getting this 1992 Loyale back up and running. I had diagnosed this engine as a broken timing belt and it was. The Driver side belt was majorly broken. However, I got the new belts on and the timing seemed to be weird and I can't get it to fire up. The pass. sides seems like it is firing but the driver side is not. It's getting spark and fuel and compression. but no combustion. Per Chiltons guide I lined up the dots to the top of the timing backing and the crank sproket dot up as well. but the driver side 2/4 is fouled by fuel, well cylinder 2 is. I didn't check c4. Compression is abour 150 psi and holds. (no leakage) Chilton siad something about applying pressure while setting the timing belt, but if I did that then it would not be on it's mark. So is there anyone out there that has done this repair and knows the exact thing to do to make sure this thing is in time? I've made sure that the engine was at TDC beore I aligned the cams. Thanks for your assistance! -Mike
