Re: Baja 5-speed to 6-speed conversion?

Having looked "lightly" at this, I have to ask What is your goal? From my research, the high gear revs are still going to be the same. I don't recall the lower gears to be much better. All you really gain is an extra gear to shift. If you're after a higher top gear (less revs) there is a 5th gear sw...

Re: Sunroof issues

Don't know od any speaker wires up in the roof. It was limited to the sunroof, rear view mirror compass, and some light wiring for the back. Radios, being very electronic, can be temperature sensitive. One thing I found is the sunroof motor is "timed" to the sunroof drive. If the motor is removed , ...

Re: Good afternoon. New to forums. I’m in dire nDoes anyone know if the Legacy gt engine can be easily swapped into my B

First question I would ask would be "How much of this type stuff have you done before?" Have you pulled engines and transmissions? What about electrical? We're talking about complete electrical system from one year to 3 years newer. You are going to run into all kinds of complications (this is why s...

Re: Baja Turbo No Power over 1/3 Throttle Then Misfire at 4000 rpm

An injector O-ring is only going to give you an EXTERNAL fuel leak, or a vacuum leak. Pressurized fuel is on one side of the injector, and goes into the intake THROUGH the injector. raw fuel getting into the intake / cylinder(s) will only be through a leaking injector or a leaking FPR. Usually, the ...

Re: 2004 Subaru Baja Turbo (pearl/silver) - $5200 OBO Los Angeles, CA

With "only" 164K miles, that is a steal price (many at that price range are up around 200K). Good history on it. I had to look at the C/L listing to determine if it were auto or manual (it's automatic). I'd expect it to sell fairly quick. Dennis

Re: Baja Turbo No Power over 1/3 Throttle Then Misfire at 4000 rpm

IF (and I say if) you are hydrolocked because of fuel, I would suspect injectors. For diagnostic starters, pull the vacuum hose from the FPR and see if fuel squirts out of the nipple. If that stays dry, consider (yes, consider, because we can't be sure over the internet - I've see way too many folks...

Re: Can I squeeze out another 1

Now I understand what you meant. Yes, I have told many "lifters" over on the Isuzu site about relieving the tension on their suspension when doing a lift, or being sure to place the weight of the vehicle on certain parts (control arm bushings) before tightening the trunion bolts. I also found an int...

Re: Under the seat subwoofer

I found the tweeter wiring inside the door panels, but when I plugged tweeters into them, they don't seem to work. Haven't investigated any further yet Dennis

Re: Can I squeeze out another 1

Okay, questions for both:
desabrir: What are "multi-link spacers"?

kamesama980: "clocking CVs?". Please explain. I'm well familiar with "Phasing U-joints". Is clocking CVs anything like that? I agree on the spacing down the subframes.

Re: What have you hauled? Post Pics !!!

You know, if I had that damage, and those parts, I would seriously consider making my Baja a "long bed" (adding about a foot between the wheel and bumper). Dennis

Re: Seeking suggestions from the experts

After a string of "Sport Utilities" (Isuzu Troopers and Rodeos), hauling stuff on the inside just helped ruin the interior. I was ecstatic to get a pickup in 2012 (Isuzu Spacecab 4x4 - extra cab). Unfortunately, it had a fuel fire, and they are VERY difficult to find. Potential replacements were Cre...

Re: Looking for a Baja -- FL

A few weeks back, there was one on C/L in the Ft Myers area for 2500. It had right around 100K, and a smashed passenger front door with a busted windshield. Back up a couple of months, and there was a yellow one in the Bay area for 2,000. Don't know the mileage it had, but you can bet there were som...

Re: Seeking suggestions from the experts

Here's the thing to consider: If you bought the last Baja to come off the line, you are still buying a 14 year old vehicle. Will you be doing your own repairs? If) so, do you have an adequate place to do those repairs? will you be keeping your Baja inside of a garage? What kind of use do you plan fo...

Re: Roof Rack Removal!

The rails are held in place by 5 10 MM nuts. There are 2 pairs over the doors, and the 5th is hidden in the rear corner. You will probably have to remove the headliner for GOOD access. You may also have to remove the top rear plastic trim outside above the rear window. YES, the square plastic covers...

I just put them into my 03 a few weeks ago. The passenger side had the wires, but the plastic plug casing was missing. The driver side was plug and play. HOWEVER, after installing, I don't even know if they work. I can't hear anything coming from either one. I went and listened to the ones in my wif...
