Been looking at getting one of these for a good while now and finally found the ideal one, so went for it!

year - 2004
body type - wagon
engine - 2.0 turbo 240bhp
present mods - cat back exhaust, k&n, tinted window

came with a fresh oil service, 12 months tax and mot, full service history, 12 months mot, 2 brand new tyres to be fitted when the present 2 wear out, 12 month FULL all parts warrenty. just about everything i could want...

drove it for a week, wasnt happy with how it was running at all, so decided to get the oil out of it and put some proper stuff in, obviously, while i was doing that, a oil filter would be needed.

i also became sad that it didnt have a dump valve, so, that was on the cards and while doing that, it seemed to make sence to get a boost gauge as the dump valve was off anyway...

so, last night, i got cracking with my mate matty whos been to a few meets in his hawkeye impreza.

Got the short shifter fitted, wasn't a walk in the park, but with some washers and some swearing, it went on.

Really starting to feel the changes now, but can feel its gunna need a remap soon.

fitted my turbo timer and radio from the mazda as the standard one made me want to die. although i liked the OEM look, the fact i couldnt listed to mp3 was the worth thing to ever happen.

OH and the skip track was a knob on the left and the volume was a knob on the right... think about it... THATS WRONG?!

turbo timer i had fitted up next to the boost gauge, but whilst sat in the car, i had another idea, which to a small degree, i have implimented...

I think it took me about 3 yrs to do less than half of what youve done in a weekend.

Nice one Laughing

Hopefully you'll be changing the door speakers, as to be fair the HU isnt the real weak point of the system Wink

Let us know about speaker fit when you get round to it, I was looking to upgrade myself but wanted to keep standard covers but there is not much space for uprated speakers. I think max depth around 50-60mm?

took standard units out and decided it was easiest to make an mdf template and fit that to the new speakers.

2 minutes with a saw and they were done, screwed them on, sorted the wiring.

After all the hard work and investment a little bit of sound deadening material to stop the door panels flapping about makes all the difference. Might have a small sheet or two in the garage, depending on where you are you could swing round and grab them Wink

Mate, I'm pretty sure I texted you asking about yours? Not remember getting a text off a Steven? Lol.

I love yours, but its blue and I wanted to go black, I'd been told I wouldn't go back. Lol!

If I was you, I would check up daily! I'm rushing to get it finished during my time off work. Haha.
