The Forester ran flawlessly again at RAC this week. I learned plenty about the car and my driving ability again ! I started the day running 40 psi cold in tyres front and rear in the AD08 and found I was sliding sideways plenty dispite having shit loads of power to the road. Jurgen suggested dropping pressure by 4 psi and boy did that work well. Anyway another great day was had but on the way home I started seeing some smoke coming from under the bonnet and scope...doooohh shit. I pull over on Roe Hwy pop the bonnet and confirm source of smoke as coming from under the turbo...cracked oil line me thinks...no flames though and I manage to get the car home without any issues, just drove off boost. Yesterday drove the car to Stechnic and Damo had a look. Confirmed it has cracked the oil feed line under the inlet manifold. They have to remove manifold to repair it so its off the road for a few days until they can get to it.

When you dropped the pressure by 4psi, what was the final pressure given they were now hot?

update is the stock engine is out, a new oil feed line (flexible) has been fabricated by Stechnic. The new ASG prepared Cosworth short motor & crank, oil pump, new head studs, gasket, and timing belt will be going in at Stechnic. I call this the best of both worlds result. ASG/Stechnic EJ257 FTW

in the mean time I am driving a white corolla
