Foiled Again


Recommended Posts

Got my mechanic mate to pop round to help me fit the new exhaust then found out we don't have gaskets (the ones on mine look a bit rusty so we don't want to re-use them), called Livi Auto parts, Pentland Components and Dingbro and none of them have any for a Subaru WRX?? Main dealer only? :crying:

Anyone local to me (Livingston) know where I could get some or even have some I could buy off them. It's never easy eh?!!

btw - are the hangers the same for a newage STi as my WRX? The exhaust is an STi one.

Cheers - Gus is a good call but he is thru in Falkirk and I'd be at Grieves by that point anyway :crying: Unless he is out and about! lol I'm amazed no factors have gaskets...

Thanks for info Welsho.

I wonder if it's worth just going to Hypertech and getting Duncan to put it on - he prob has gaskets in stock!

Go to your local kwik fit or tyre/exhaust centre you may well get them there ;)

Aye we called one Kwik Fit but no luck - as it happens it's getting new tires and pads done tomorrow at Kwik Fit as an SIDC member (Risin Son) works there so I'll ask him about fitting that too - altho I know they don't like to fit parts not bought from Kwik Fit themselves.

I'll see if Leon can do a homer in his lunch break B)

Cheers again all ;)

Gus - It's ok - Leon got the exhaust fitted for me - he said they had to check the engine was turned on so I'm not sure what I'll think of it being so quiet but it's going up for sale soon anyway - thanks tho m8 B)

Oh that's a relief, I thought you were going to have them supply something from their range :D

Nooo!! :)

Thx to bobbyc and the lovely clean STi backbox he sold me my car is happy again - but very quiet! I have to say - it's quite nice for a change lol - only problem is I am driving it faster as it's not making any noise and there's no drama when you put your foot down - apart from the boost in speed! :)

It's made it even more of a sleeper - little do people know there's 300bhp under the bonnet of that unassuming WRX that just passed them :D

And, since the new F1s went on the car is handling great - so Falkens get the thumbs down from me!
