Hi all, im lee, just registered as bought my first scooby.. however i have come across a few problems in last few weeks.
Firstly the car is a 01 reg bug eye wrx, 35k,(well thats on the clocks), but does have history and old mots to verfy millage.
The car is an inport as ive just found out.
Now to the problems, when i bought it, the engine idled really rough, like fromm 500rpm to 300, then up to 700, it was noticable it only does this every say 10 secs, not constantly., i took it to get a diagnostic and it came back with running lean on bank 1?? wot ever this means? anyway cleared it and its now come back on. The car smells of fuel smells, wen driving, and also when its stood still at lights, it smokes a bit, however it is cold weather season, and if i set off there is more smoke, looks bit bluey, not 100% sure tho on colour. it only does this everynow and then tho, sometimes dont smoke.. the mods to the car, as far as iknow are,
sti bottom end,
vf34 ballbearing turbo
bailey dump valve
full samco blue hose kit
CAI induction kit
Turbo inlet blue pipe
turbo back exhaust, no cats at all.
It runs 1.5 bar of boost, but i dont think its been mapped,
also has a different top mount intercooler, had like 2 extra breather pipes on it from std??? just wot i been told?
the car runs perfect when u give it some, no misses, no smoke, just all good, just had a idle issue, and smokey on tik over after driving.. Can anyone help me, im not sure weather to seel, as could be trouble, or persavier with it.. any idvice and ideas would be great, anyone experienced any of these probs. the turbo pipe doesnt seem to be a good fit either, hoping to change that this weekend, all pipes have been checked and we cant seem to find a leak, part from turbo pipe?
one more thing, could the de cats cause this to run lean, and bring light on? the car is a blue wrx, with sti wheels, with private reg h16 ddd, incase anyone knows the car, or seen it when was on ebay recently..
