Stop Leaks

23 Oct

The ‘classic’ shape Impreza, those 93-01 cars that started the global Subaru craze, are great cars that are affordable, and easy to mod. But let’s face it, they are still old cars. They’ve sometimes lived hard lives and every now and then, need maintenance. In our continuing effort to help keep these awesome cars alive, we’re happy to now offer our latest Master Gasket Kit – the Valvecover Master Gasket Kit.

Take the guesswork out of doing new gaskets with our master kit. As the RS’s have aged, the valvecover gaskets are notorious for developing leaks, and that makes for a messy engine bay, loss of oil, and general inefficiency.

These are the OEM gaskets, by the manufacturer who makes them for Subaru – just much less expensive. Go ahead, call your dealer, and price out all the components we include and see for yourself!

These kits are VERY year specific, as valvecovers differ. Please use the guide below to decide which kit is correct, or if you have a question, give us a call, as kits are not returnable.

For the DOHC cars, kit includes both valvecover gaskets (left and right), spark plug well gaskets, all the valvecover grommet bolt seals, and the 1/2 moon seals. These are very production date specific as Subaru used different valvecovers during their production run.

If you have a DOHC 2.5 liter Impreza/Legacy, how do you ensure you order the right kit? You can verify it 1 of 2 ways. Via the engine production #, or via production date. Production date is the easiest, as the date (month/year) can be found in a tag in the driver side door. Please write the production date (month/year) in the comments section when ordering.

2.2 Liter DOHC Kits include both valve cover gaskets (left and right), and the valvecover sealing washers. Optionally, we also offer the kit with the spark plug seals as well as noted below.

For the 1999 + SOHC cars, your kit will include both valvecover gaskets (left and right) and the valvecover sealing washers. Optionally, we also offer the kit with the spark plug seals as well as cam seals as noted below. Fits 2.2 and 2.5 liter SOHC cars.

Picture shown is a general picture for illustrative purposes, but contents will be as described above for the specified year car

Something Wicked This Way Comes

5 Sep

I know, I know, alot of customer car entries lately and not alot of tech-babble – I promise tomorrow we’ll get another installment of the ITB discussion going!

For now though, feast your eyes on this machine.  As with the previous Z, this car is owned by another UK customer of ours, and one of the nicest guys I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with.  I met Jay through our sponsorship on www.350z-uk.com.  He had just sold his previous Z, and was in process of purchasing this Kuro Black GT.  He had big plans, big aspirations and was a great customer to work with.  We bounced lots of suggestions off one another and the final result is what you see here.  I think it speaks for itself.  The most striking thing on the car is of course, the Veilside V3 Aero kit.  Everyone who sees it on this particular car said the same thing “ya know, I usually don’t like that kit, but it looks great on your car” – and they are right I think!  While it might be over the top for some, Jay’s car is clean enough that it all just works!  Although the car has been sold (my man’s getting an Aston! ), I think it shows that you can balance wild with tasteful.

Jay’s car will be in an upcoming issue of MaxPower (a UK mag), so check it out.  Also just want to throw out a quick hell, and thanks to Jay’s brother Danny – another Zed-head.   Thanks again guys!  Check out their company www.blitzsport.com.
