N/A Tech Chat / 2.5 x - no power after 4000 RPM
« Last post by Robert Welman on Today at 02:29:19 PM »
Good day all

Just did a long trip and as long as I stayed around the 3500 RPM  mark  ,there was enough power and car was running fine. Did around 11.5 - 12.5 KMPL

But when the passes and the inclines came....eish... had to  gear down to 3rd and no guts. Also when cruising i can feel that she surges every now and again , like a hesitation for a split second

Any advise?

I have a 2007 2.5 x - 255000 km on the clock.

Major items changed recently

4 x Plug leads / fuel filter / air filter / spark plugs(BOSCH) / oil filter / oil / brake pads / brake fluid / left front headlight globe / The exhaust box has been changed to a newer model exhaust.. Battery has been checked and charging system is charging correctly

I have a feeling its the exhaust. The engine management light with cruise control came on for about three months, shorty after the newer box was fitted , but this has since sorted itself out and the cruise control is working again.

Should the car be remapped due to the newer exhaust?

Pleased to hear

We might experience a day or two's downtime while I move servers.

On the BC's, I have them on my Impreza and would definitely not put them on my Forester. Great handling but very harsh even on the softest settings.

Good day people

I came across interesting information on SH/SJ shock compatibility on the following thread:

No problems painting it if that is what you mean?

I had my steel wheels on my X powder coated black. Looked lekker, especially with the black plastic lower skirts and bumpers of the SG X.

YUP, that was my initial thoughts as well, just not sure if the std wheel lends itself to colour, opposed to a mag design?
