Driving up to see me grandad yesterday a few cars and a clapped out transit were holding me back doing 25 on a 60mph road up consett so I thought Fook it! Dropped to 3rd and proceeded to overtake them all at a legal speed of course lol revs were upto 6500rpm and then there was a load bang and the car lost all power and slowed right down, first thought in me head was I should have listened to everyone saying don't take the car over 400bhp it'll go bang lol, I limped it to be grandads and went straight for a look at the turbo as I thought it had let go, ended up down at Gavs with its and thank Fook it's and sti with removable fog light cover were one of the clips had came loose on the front mount and blew the pipe off! I was the happiest man on earth when it turned out to be something as daft as that but can fairly say me heart was in my mouth when it went bang! It was like a gunshot!!! And a Subaru without a turbo is completely wank like but mint on fuel hahaha

It did that power for 6k miles but the engine only had 32k on before I started tuning it(back in 2002), then the new owner took it up to 437hp and it did a ring land after around 500 miles, it was running methanol at @ 25% by then though.

I bet the transit driver thought he owned you after that haha,
Apparently he now has a sticker of a WRblue scooby on his door with a x through it now and a big smile on his face lol.
Please it was just the pipe mate.

Know that feeling when there's that big bang from then engine bay .

Dip the clutch and look in the mirror for any bits of engine /oil on the road behind you !

Then to find out it's only an intercooler pipe blown off , thank God for that and I'm not exactly religious !

If it's a steel intercooler pipe then a run of weld on the outside of the pipe gives the silicone connectors jubilee clips something to bire into .

Alternatively . if it's either a steel or aluminium I/C pipe then using a centre punch on the inside of the I/C pipe a series of points around the end about a 1/4 inch from the end works well .

Stops a Christmas heart attack , LOL !

Forgot to add , I recommend replacing any Jubilee style clips with the Mikalor style clamps . They can be tightened a lot more . A local stockist for thes is Linden in Newton Aycliffe .

Hope this helps .
