A couple of Newbie questions

Hi guys and gals,

I've just bought a 2001 WRX in WR blue. It has 49k, a full scoobysport ninja exhaust system, panel filter, a bailey dump valve and sti fog light covers. I have just ordered a sti rear spoiler and will have that painted and fitted this week.

1) Anyone know what sort of BHP it will be running?

2) I find the brakes terrible for the speed of the car, it is as if it has normal car brakes on a lightning fast car. Is there a upgrade kit that i could buy, including discs & pads etc that would make the thing stop?

3) The dump valve doesn't really start making any noise until the car has been driven for 5 mins or so. I dont boot it from cold, i warm the car up first, but the dv doesn't kick in for a bit, why is that?

4) In 3rd gear, when i back of the throttle it carries on for a split second, it doesn't do this in any other gear, why is that?

Many thanks,

1)around the 265bhp mark i would have thought

2)brakes are renowned to be shite on scoobs, depends hwo much you wanna spend for brake upgrade.

3) no idea, might indicate a boost issue or might be leaking

4) shouldn't do it, get it checked out asap, sounds like timing might be out
