Re: Baja Roll on Liner

I used Herculiner, cost about $80.00. The key is that if the bed is cleaned, it will stick to the Poly-Pro plastic bed. If the bed is not clean the Herculiner will not bond. In either case hurculiner was not meant for applictions onto PP plastic. If it chips, just re-apply.

Baja Roll on Liner

I finally applied my roll-on-liner this past Sunday.
So far no issues with chipping or lifting off the Poly-Pro Liner.

Let me know what you think.

Blow Off Valve - 2006 Baja Turbo -

I am looking for a blow-off-valve for my 2006 Turbo Baja.
Does anyone currently have one installed?
Which model?
How much?
Who did you order it from?

Any performance issues after the install?

If you have pictures of it installed can you post it?

Thanks
Rick

2006 Subaru Baja Turbo - Poor Brakes

The brakes in 2006 Baja turbo with 46K miles are starting to feel very soft. The brake pedal is super soft until about the last 1/3 of pedal travel. It is almost to the floor when the brakes starts to grab. The rotors and pads are in great condition. Initial thoughts were water in the brake lines or...

Re: Vinyl seat repair?

Pepboys sells in there stores a vinyl repair kit. It comes with mulitple color pastes and patches, along with the iron needed to activate the pastes and create the repair. It costs about $13.00 and I have used it to repair my convertable vinyl top on my Miata. Its not a perfect fix, but for $13.00 i...

Loss of Power based on fuel used

I have a stock 2006 Baja Turbo. I have noticed that since the gas prices have hit a record high my car has been running poorly. Using Mobil gas my car feels like I am towing a trailer, using Cumberland Farms gas it feels and acts like a WRX. I was wondering if anyone else has started to see this iss...

Re: Rattling when cold

I have a 2006 Turbo, when cold I get a type of a rattle from the driver side of the vehicle. I have looked for anything loose and found nothing. I once read someone saying that if an oil intake screen gets clogged with sludge it could lead to oiling issues causing that rattle sound. I think I have t...

Baja Meets in New England

Are there any weekly or monthly Baja meets in the Boston MA area?
I've been to a few WRX meets and almost never see another Baja in the parking lot.

The WRX crews wave at eachother when driving past on the road, have yet to see another Baja driver wave back... what's the deal?

Bed Protection

Has anyone tried to apply any type of bed protection to the Baja Plastic Bed. I was thinking about using a roll on bed liner. Carpet or mats are out of the question as they only get in the way. There are two reason for wanting to apply the coating... 1) The bed is slippery when wet and I have alread...
