Got no replies so ill try here instead. Swapped the twin turbo into my outback doesn't feel like the primary is makimg any boost, it has no power and keeps throwing up code 66 and won't rev past 5000rpm
I cleaned and changed all the vacuum hoses in the solenoid box before the swap, did them one at a time so they're all where they should be.
I've checked the vacuum tank and it holds vacuum. Had it running in diagnostic mode and it seems to open and close everything.
I double checked all vacuum hoses coming out of the box and they all go to the right spot.
Anyone got some ideas at where to start looking?

Hey folks!

So I just bought a JDM BH5 Rev D, awaiting its arrival here in Vancouver, Canada.

I've spent a lot of time trawling forums looking for info on maintenance and mods, and read through the whole of this thread - shit this is like a gold mine!

So I am hoping someone could help me out with putting together a concise list of things to do when I finally get it home.

My thought was a good thorough servicing, but I am confused about part numbers and sizes between the different Revs.

From what I can work out, the following is my list of jobs :)

Fluids and filters (air, oil, fuel? any others?)
Replace all vacuum hoses (3.5mm hose)
Clean out solenoid box (Do I replaces lines here as well?)
Spark plugs (Bosch model number??)

I will need to do the 100,000km service - so whats involved with that other then the timing belt?

Any other suggestions?

Also, how much crossover for parts is there between the models the EJ208 was in? This engine only came in the USDM WRX, so wondering if parts for that will work on the JDM BH?

The card up my sleeve though is that I'm an Aussie with family coming over soon, so if its easier and cheaper, maybe I can just get parts sent to them and they bring them over?

Thanks fellas! Appreciate all the hard work with this thread!

- clean the solenoids and lines out in the BBOD and the WG solenoid in the passenger (left-side) wing. Don't lose any pills. You can replace with silicon if you feel keen, but no need if the lines are still good.
- lots of interchangeable parts between '208 and 205 (WRX). Subaru used the same oil and air filter on many models, for example. Places like partsouq.com are your friend for stuff you can't get locally. Way cheaper than oz, and shipping is reasonable.
- timing belt -- definitely do the water pump & tensioner. Cam seals if you feel keen.
- sparks are spec'd platinum NGK : PFR6G - but they're $$ and the equivalent copper is actually better if you replace more often.
- replace gearbox and diff oil.
- flush the brakes. Check for binding calipers.
- replace PS fluid
- replace the HVAC filter (see next item)
- most importantly - scrub, shampoo, vacuum and disinfect the inevitable JDM smoker's gunk and general funk which seems to be in every nook and cranny of many cars from Japan.
- ? probably other stuff.

Not too sure about the Liberty B4 vacuum tank under the left headlight/fender.

Do i need reinforced silicon 10mm inner diameter hose or will normal silicon hose be fine?i believe there are 3 sections. From the bbod, in front of radiator and last piece of hose goes to the vacuum tank.

Unless there's something wrong with them there's no need to touch them &
avoid silicone. Those hoses a hard for a reason.

I'm just looking to replace anything that might be worn. Have already replaced everything else i can using 3mm and 6mm silicon hoses.



Do you suggest i grab something like 2 metres of 10mm ID fuel hose?


Or will this work?

You want a hose that won't collapse under vacuum. Something like brake booster hose.
My gut is telling me that silicone hose you linked would be too soft
