Re: what is my Baja worth?

I still think your looking at $25k+ but with a truck that nice, low milage and that much after market,. You could easily make up a price near 30 and someone will probably try to negotiate with you. All I can say is that if this happens, PM me because EVERYTHING I have will be for sale and I want to...

Re: Got ripped off

I took the Baja to a local muffler and brake shop. Before I go any further, let me say that I'm not a gearhead, I'm just a regular guy with an infatuation for Bajas. I made the mistake of assuming I also assumed the response was simply, "it's all badly rusted." He left it at that. I could not conti...

Re: Lurker that wanted a Baja turbo

I agree with "Mike". You have to shop. My 03 NA Baja is right at 202K miles. AFAIK, I am 3rd owner. Original owners allegedly towed it behind a motorhome, but how many miles does one REALLY put on a motorhome? The second owner, a retired Subaru / Isuzu mechanic had the history of what he had done to...

Re: Fuel System Issue

Unless you know a whole lot more about fuel chemistry than I do, ethanol doesn't turn into water. It absorbs water rather than separating (like gas or oil) and creates more water in the combustion process than non-oxygenated fuel but it won't turn to water in the tank Not to argue chemistry, water ...

Re: Fuel System Issue

While I haven't checked my Baja yet (never really thought about it until now), all my other Subarus also have a fuel filter up in the engine compartment. Other possibilities could be any pinched or deteriorated lines in the fuel evaporative system, charcoal canister, etc. Dennis

Dennis' mod quote: "If you change something, you will have to change something else too". That said, it's looking awesome. This may very well become the king of the Bajas. Dennis

Re: Sunroof issues

Yeah, but I couldn't get the "5 mm allen" deal to work until I removed the motor. I was afraid I was going to break something. Dennis

Re: Sunroof issues

There is a "module" attached to the motor that apparently makes the safety function where you go to close it, it moves a few inches, stops, and you hit the switch again and it closes all the way. from my internet searches about my own problems with this, the modules go bad and are part of the motor ...

Re: 2006 Baja Turbo Engine Removal

So I am looking at your engine picture and notice that it is the DOHC engine (similar to the EJ25 in my '98 Forester). Is this still a 2.5, or is it the 2.0 turbo I have heard about (JDM engine?). Never worried much about turbos as I feel like my NA Baja has plenty of pep. Dennis

Re: 2006 Baja Turbo Engine Removal

I have pulled engines on 2 Foresters while leaving the A/C system intact and on the vehicles, and the Foresters are supposed to ba a bit smaller vehicles. Dennis

Re: A Work Baja story

From your initial description, I was expecting to see a total beater. From you rpics, it really doesn't look that bad. Love to see an "unloved" vehicle get some TLC. From your parts pics, this one should come out nice. Dennis

Re: Trailer wiring harness

There is an access plug under the right rear for a "plug and play" trailer light system. It is capped from the factory. You remove the cap, plug in the harness (w/ module), secure the wires, and you are good to go. Dennis
