    New Member from Limerick.

    IMG_3554.JPGHello Everyone

    New member here from Limerick, just brought my first Subaru in from Japan.
    It's a 2006 (facelift) Legacy Estate BP5 Twinscroll.

    Looking forward to chatting with and maybe meeting fellow Scooby enthusiasts over the coming years.

    Cheers

    Nice Leggy, you should come to Limerick Cars and Coffee just off the Ballysimon Road. I take a trip every so often from Galway. Would love to see this in person.

    I try to go every month mate, usually in my FD, but the leggy will be around for the next one for sure.

    I've been driving them for 10 years, I'm happy to never mention them again 😂😂.

    Quick one on the Irish fuel situation, I'm using octane booster since the car landed, I also spoke to Martin in westward engineering who told me not to bother mapping the car for Irish fuel and to stick to branded stations like Maxol and Topaz etc selling E5, I'm overly cautious (years of roatary ownership) and I don't feel like ditching the booster just yet, what are the thoughts on it and what do you guys do?


    Also I'm well used to boost gauges, the leggy doesn't have one, again airing on the cautious side I'm inclined to think I need one, what do yee think.

    If it was me, id map it definitely for piece of mind. Now plenty lads use octane booster with no problems, but I don't think any octane booster would give you the extra 10 Ron to match what the car is mapped for at present.
    That's only my opinion, as said loads of people do otherwise.
    Can't hurt to map it for 95 and not have to worry about the fuel in the tank etc etc.

    Boost gauge, sure why not lol
    Always a benefit, I've been driving mine with none for the last while with no problems, but got some gauges lately strictly for cosmetic purposes lol

    I'm sure some lads here will have proper scientific answers to your questions tho..
