    I bought yet another SF EJ205 a couple of months ago, this time a 1999 S-Turbo, 4EAT and only about 250000km on the ODO. Apart from using a bit more oil than I'm used to, and some valve ticking, it seemed to work fine but on a 200km drive home at night, mostly on country roads, where I drove...

    Hey folks! Here in search for some information about torque bind, and axle compatibility. Earlier this year in February, I had my control arm rust and snap coming out of the driveway, and it ripped the axle out as well as a few other things.

    I have a 2002 Subaru Forester that I just put a brand new engine in over 8 thousand miles ago. It has 228k on it. Since then it’s been a great car, besides the fact that the transmission acts up sometimes, and tonight it left me alongside the road. After going up a steep hill (55-60 MPH), and...
