Wanted - Parts or Vehicles / Re: Sell me your prodrive back box
« Last post by Mathieu on January 17, 2019, 12:43:07 PM »
I have since driven a forester with a Prodrive back box and confirm it is exactly what I was after.
It is louder than stock and you can hear what the engine is doing, but it is not at all excessive or obnoxious.

I also was able to study the Prodrive box: it's actually just a perforated through-pipe in a wadded can- much like a Powerflow box. So I took dimensions to Powerflow and got it matched quite closely to one of their stock boxes. They harvested the original tip, hanger rods and flange and built me a new axle back bolt on.
Cost was R2550 and I am very happy with the result, its almost identical to the Prodrive.

If a Prodrive comes up i'll still be tempted though...

Hi Gieljam,

You should please elaborate a bit more on which tensioner you require, the are noramlly more than one.
Assuming it's for the Aircon compressor belt, try MACS Auto http://www.macsauto.co.za/. I bought mine there some years ago.

If it is for the timing(cam) belt, try Masterparts....

Are you doing lot's of city traffic driving? An auto with torque-converter is not very economical then. On my 3.6 Outback with CVT I can get 9l/100km easily on the open road, but slow dorp traffic driving easily becomes 14l/100km...

Cars For Sale / 2009 Subaru Outback 2.5i Manual
« Last post by Outbacker on January 16, 2019, 11:17:06 PM »
Hi Guys

I am planning on selling my 2009 Outback 2.5i

The car has a full service history with mileage sitting on 133954km (2019/01/16).

It has been well take care of, and the 2.5 L engine with variable valve timing is very fuel efficient (8.6L/100km).
The tyres has been replaced at the end of 2017, and has covered about 20000km since then.

The car will also be sold with the aluminium sump guard that I have posted on this Forum previously, and I will include the RWC with the sale.

Items on the car requiring attention:
1. The badges on the rear tailgate has been polished off by an overzealous carwash employee
2. If you plan on towing a caravan, or load the car up with really heavy loads I would suggest investing in some heavy duty rear coils and shocks.

Other than that, the car has mostly been used on tar with maybe the odd gravel road during the holidays since the car has been in my possession.

The main reason for selling is getting an Automatic verion of an Outback for all the town driving we do during the week.

Asking Price is R120000

The car is located in Woodstock, Cape Town

Still looking for one.
For my 2006 SG9 XT.

Thank you kindly.

Regular powerflow box is better. There is nothing cool about the prodrive box except the prodrive logo on the tailpiece.
