Who has the most miles on their LGT, and how are they holding up? - Vol-2

famaya26 01-26-2013 10:00 AM

At 130,000
OEM everything except for STi Catless UP.

Saving up for a rebuild in the near future.

Valve Cover Gasket on PS is leaking.

Also need to replace LCA bushings and CV axles on both sides.

That looks really clean in there Mike. Good to see that Amsoil is that good.

I think the dual-bypass filtration system is also worthy of mention for clean heads like that

144k 05 5eat LTD wagon: CobbAP, SPt intake & exhaust, P&L Motorsport Jorge' tune at 34k. STI rear sway & whiteline front sway, kartboy end link @40k. Brakes are Hawk, DBA42650 w/ ss line since 71k, inspect recently and still holding up.

Needed transverse link bushing at 80k, timing belts @ 102k, OEM turbo replaced @110k (housing was leaking oil). P&L Dyno check, car still rocking 228 whp.

1st wheel bearing was replaced at 2k, each corner done twice so far. Now I am running a 3Yr warranty after market bearing sets since 134k.

tires: Pirelli PZero M+S at 20k doto sidewall bubbles in OEM crap tires
Bridgestone RE960AS pole positon at 64k do to tread life, onset of winter
Continental Extreme Contact DWS at 119k " "
DWS are the best for me.

Sept-11 Upgraded to 2008 Stereo w/ MP3, aux out, & WOW. BIG improvement in Audio via my droid (vs. Bluetooth to FM adapter)

Tried the "SPt Lower Chassis Brace" 2 mos ago. clearance to lower heat fins was tight. Adjusted many times to get rid of clunks & thunks, removed completely after 30 days.

If I hit the lottery or other windfall want to upgrade to Cosworth 402, but detune to a safer 350 h/p. (and corresponding beef up on 5eat).

I will keep this car forever. Prior was 1990 4eat Legacy LS Wagon, rust, bad air suspension, & loss of 1st gear took it way from me at 13yrs, 235k mi.

Cheap 10$ Wagner or Sylvania H7 headlight bulb last the longest.

Who has the most miles
OK, today I had a CEL come up, P0011, Intake A Camshaft Timing Over Advanced Bank 1. I have 189,250, original owner, well cared for miles. Timing belt was done at 122,345. Oil, Royal Purple since 10,000 miles, oil level good, changed 2500 miles ago.

Any ideas or others that have experienced same? As always, thanks in advance for all your help and time.

IIRC is one of the 1st signs of the banjo filler bolt getting plunged. Pull both bolts, inspect. And go from there. One in front DS head & the 2nd, rear PS the feed the turbo. If clean, the AVCS need a good cleaning or replaced.


idendor 01-27-2013 02:08 PM

concur: got P0011 , had banjo screens pulled,and also found oil leak from turbo housing during inspection.

I'm approaching 219K. So far 1 AT transmission, turbo (wastegate stuck partially open), head gasket, 3 wheel bearings.

Skiman 01-28-2013 06:05 AM

Sorry, I should have stated the turbo replaced approx. 27,000 miles ago, fully cleaned system, pan dropped and cleaned. Have had 5 oil changes and on 6th today.

specialB 01-28-2013 06:21 AM

Less than 500 miles away from turning 100k! Holy chow have we come far from 29k in June 09'. 8k miles into a new motor other than that only had to change out one clutch and a wheel bearing.
