Up and running this evening. Straight out onto the lanes of Northumberland for a shakedown. Few Tweeks in the morning to camber, castor and brake bias and she's ready to roll. MOT in the morning.

One word. Epic.


What engine is it running?

Took my new beasty in to Power Crazy Motorsport in Lincoln last week to give it the once over.

New cam belt, oil and filter, clean the Pipercross panel filter, new fuel filter, clean the injectors and new plugs.

Lovely and smooth now, and it seems to be a tad more economical. 28mpg round town, and it managed 39mpg on a run.

Cool, keep me posted.

Kirsten is looking into getting the Legacy remapped too. She took it to Langworth Motorsport who are Subaru specialists and is just waiting a formal price, but with everything they plan to do it'll be IRO £1500. Not looking for more top end, but want to give it better pick up and quicker 0>60.
