thanks man! these are things i like to know any known cause? is it too much heat or something?

the jdm spec c inlet is already bigger than normal. the internal diameter is the same as most silicon inlets with 2.4" turbo connection. i really dont want to have to do my turbo inlet untill i upgrade the turbo a ways down the road as i will be going 3".

Yes I believe my tuner pointed the issue to the heat causing it to shrink over time. Again I know Perrin makes quality products. I have their BigMAF Intake on my last set-up and it was great. But the Perrin Inlet not so much.

here is an OEM timing belt kit we pieced together for the EJ207 (typed for clarity)


1) Tensioner - 13033AA042
2) Timing Belt - 13028AA240
3) Small Idler - 13073AA230
4) Toothed Idler - 13085AA080

the other 2 dont have normal subaru stickers or part #'s but the box says PU306030FRR9H above the barcode. both are identical and from the dealership. these are all parts i purchased.


new fluid & filter also going in the trans as well



proper drain and drop method. do not power flush a 14 yr old 4EAT. you will explode the insides.

so i found some water in my rear footwell and wondered why because noones ever in my back seat. things got a little out of hand lol trying to solve the problem...


and then i found the problem...



welcome to the canadian rust belt. thats the passenger side. drivers side is twice as bad.

Replacement Panels. Might as well go all out. no sense half-assing anything now.



if anyone is looking for panels since this is a common problem



going to get coated inside and out with Por15

Lachute Twin Scroll Cat-Less 3" Turbo Back Exhaust





they use high end magnaflow muffler and resonator. both straight through design.



all wrapped up ready for installation. one full 50' roll 1" wide of DEI Titanium wrap



welds on this entire product are beautiful. this is definitely a well made product. comes with the bung needed for the front O2 sensor as well as a wide-band bung. also has the 3rd mini-cat fix for the rear O2 sensor. they think of everything.

Magnaflow has been proven to allow the most flow at WOT as well as being saddle when you don't want it to be loud. Good looks and I'm waiting for videos!
