Hello everyone... already introduced myself last time..am Steven from Mauritius island. Just bought a subaru impreza 1.6 yr 2002 ...project: an STI swap soon
Need a lil advice... infact as u are all aware the scooby key is equipped with this transponder for security. My big problem is that ive got only one such key...and last week i nearly had a heart attack!!! i misplaced it at work and after 3 hours of long search managed to get it from the lounge cleaning guys!(Thanks god!)
My big problem here in my small island is that we dont get such transpoder equipped keys,,, ive made only 2 metal cut keys but which r useless wen it comes to starting up the engine..
So guys, need ure advices..wat would you do in ma place?
i got many ideas in my head...:
1) Cant i keep the original transponder key in the car hidden itself? in such a manner that it always decode the security?... infact in my country car theft is not such an issue..as we are small..only 1 million haitants... its rare we get stolen cars..
So if anyone ever did that.. would be glad if could help out..
2) another option would be to buy a second transponder equipped key on ebay..which i already spotted ..not too expensive about $13... but my big problem again is where to codify this key? the big con in mauritius is that the subaru representatives are not reliable..and am pretty sure they wont be able to codify it... so guys is there a means it can be codified or can it be done abroad? cant understand till now how do they codify it? is there any reference of either my car ecu or chassis number they need to do so?
3) Glue the key to my hand LOL
Last but not least i need 2 confirmation as follows:
1)can anyone advise me on which 17'' tyres would be ok for an 1.6ts bug eye? i was thinking of 225/45/R17... any ideas plz thx
2) what is the oil capacity of this EJ16 engine? googled it thpugh cant find any link 4 litres i guess?
Grateful if you could please help me out mates...thx in advance for ure valuable support which am certain ill obtain
