might of cracked it

well after a long battle with the scoob i decided today as a last ditch attempt to chnage my feul filter to see if that got rid of my slight hesitantancy in second between 2000 and 2700 rpm it just felt that the scoob would kick a bit
anyway after a long battle with the hoses and one split
I got the new filter on along with this the hks etc etc i done engine reset while driving is reset mode it felt worese
but when i put back to normal the car got more responsive and the flat spots gradually went away
oh also cleaned ICV etc
but it was when i emptyed out the old filter I though is petrol supposed to be brown
then another shock the filter was a barsteward to get off and was from subaru
oh my god i hear you say can this 10 year old car have the same filter on
we will never know but i hope not.
well next fitting a cusco strut brace and hopefully a new feul pump
keep on driving

brown fuelk sounds like its got rust in it, change filter and might be worth draining and refillign the tank with some decent vpower, mates car sat for 3 months while was rebuilt form bare shell up again, they went ot map it and it wasn;t very happy, drained the tank and that cruddy fuel came out, some nice fresh v power in and it ran alot smoth and mapped ok
