New NA owner in the bay area!

Postby eddiec168 » Tue Apr 15, 2014 10:27 am

Hey Guys!

I just picked up a little black NA8 and I'm loving it. The only problem is that the Diff is going out, if anyone has one, please let me know!

Hahaha, yea, I've had my WRX since 2003. It was my track car, but subie engines are expensive! I just blew an engine at my last track day.

Sad day in thundertown :cry:

Welcome to Norcalroadsters! Sorry, I don't have an extra diff sitting around.

Thanks Maharaj, I might be doing a NA6 diff swap. Hahaha, found a NA6 setup for cheap including axles and drive shaft.

Ouch! Sorry to hear man! Which shop do you take it to or do you do it all the work on your own?
I used to own an '04 from new. That was my auto-x/track car.
I've moved on to an '01 Forester. :)

I did my own swap last time. My GF said no more swaps for me so I took it to my friend's shop! Acme Body Shop in Sacramento (http://www.acmebodyshop.pro/).

Great shop, nice owner. If anyone needs any work, he does Subies, Miatas, 240s, etc!

Do you know someone who wants to buy or sell a house? I'll buy a $500 car part, when we close escrow as a "thank you" to you for the introduction.
