The ever green Raptor Liberty

Is the test bed for all our 3.0 parts

Currently runs the Raptor Performance headers, giving up to 30kw gains for some extra push into the seat!

Car has had all the supercharger gear fitted numerous times, checking customer kit parts REALLY DO FIT.

Liberty got an oil and filter change today, also cleaned he air flow sensor. Penrite 10/50 for winter use instead of the 20/60 I use for the summer periods.

Also bought a fuel filter assembly, in preparation for ................... BOOSTING

Today's non SC update

The high pressure hose on the A/C compressor failed! Subaru only want $400 for this little hose about 350mm long!!!!! Rippoff

As it happens we have a local company who specialises in the manufacture of A/C hoses and the new item will be less than $100

Vlad

Reinz is much improved over stock Subaru gaskets - they are distributed by Mahle (the greatest name in pistons)

No need for ceramic gaskets really, the Reinz. Right price - superior quality.

Cometic do something quite well priced but its not a complete set, its just the head gaskets. The Reinz is COMPLETE set for head removal and replace

All made in Germany - you should have no problem getting these items for Bulgaria area and they are very low cost - at least in the USA

If you have friends with WRX/STI, Victor Reinz do a very special gasket engineered to overcome any Subaru cylinder head sealing design issues in the H4 turbo engine

I will ask the seller that I have purchased from

Also there is this one, but it ships only within USA http://www.ebay.com/itm/200792543517?ss ... 1423.l2649

I have emailed the company to see if they will sell us some more VR sets, from what I can work out the VR part number is this # HS54655. The company ph number is 903-880-0050 - RELIANT GASKET

I let you know Vlad when I get answer to my email
