  2. I have two Scoobies, both Prodrive chipped WRXs. One's done 215,000, the other 115,000. Neither has needed any engine work except servicing. And new air con belt tensioner wheel bearings at £30. The older one drinks a little more oil but still runs super smooth and as rapid as ever.
    They last well when looked after.
    If I was looking for a new bus or bus engine I'd not worry too much at a well installed Subaru conversion. I think I'd probably worry about breakdowns much less driving one too. That would give me more time to worry about all the other things I worry about.

  10. His car is his daily and will be doing the work later in the year..
    I think he has rjs stuff ,
    as he knows Richard really well..
  11. I've had a 5 rib rebuilt with stronger bearings,and extended 3rd and 4th gears to suit a 2litre scooby,
    easier than a scooby conversion...and cheaper..

    How much does that set someone back?
  13. I have a 5 rib had it rebuilt and longer 4th, I think you may still find it revving too high, unless your longer 4th is loooooooong :)
  14. was his name Nick by any chance?
  15. It will be and a scooby engine will cope..
    Not not Nick tune ,
    a guy call Steve who does some trade stands for red9..
    He has white prototype with blue stripes over the front

    would you say that an impreza is more likely to earn money from breaking, over a forester? I would. But the pay off could be that a forester would not have been likely to be ragged like an impreza. Or does it not matter?
