Great write up dellsfozz thanks for sharing.

And while I think of it, did you change the lights in the bar itself, as the look different in the front view pic.
The main reason for asking is that I need to replace the lights in my bar.

Regards
Mr Turbo

Thanks Mr Turbo. I did change the clearance lights in the bullbar with a combo blinker/clearance lights made by Narva. It is readily available to fit in this bullbar but they come in amber and clear lens. I replaced the amber lens to both clear lens, normal globe with white LED and the blinker with amber globes. It is a good upgrade. It will give more warning to other vehicles/road users when you turn and the lighting effect is excellent.

Thanks dellsfozz. Mine have never worked since buying my bar (2nd hand) So I think its about time they did & I like the twins that you have on yours.
Looks like I've got some shopping to do.

Mr Turbo

One of my personal favourite interior mods *drumroll......*
Custom fit the cargo barrier, WRX Rear Strut bar, high side cargo tray/tub and Custom NOS!!
Enjoy!



I cut the bottom of a millford cargo barrier and mounted it on top of the strut bar, using stainless steel clamps so i can still carry long stuff inside when folding the back seat down and with cargo tub removed. This is a problem associated when a normal cargo barrier is fitted.



I don't like the idea of drilling bolt holes on the hood lining, so i used the existing holes for child restraint on the roof.It should be strong enough to hold the load with on the barrier.



The strut bar is for "bug eye" wrx to MY06. Ebay bargain, they couldnt tell me if it fits on the foz when i was buying it but i bought it anyway, and if it didnt fit, i'd make it fit. It fits perfect, the only tricky/hard part is to cut nicely the plastic trim or cover on top. I am pretty happy with the result.

That brilliant mate.
I wish I'd thought of that when I had mine installed.

Great setup you got there Dellsfoz. Very impressive on the XT and the Camper setup.

Some nice work on the front bar and the interior. I saw a shot of the XT on ozFoz and thought that they must be putting that bar on the 06 models too now. Looks very good.

I think I need to get a bigger scoop, did you notice much difference?

I'm thinking of doing the same thing myself.

I had a similar 'half barrier' made for my old VW wagon, for exactly the same reason. Worked fantastic.
Am thinking of having similar made for back of my sunroof 05MY OB, as standard wont fit.

Anyone else done this?

I dont feel much difference, because the XT still has good power and torque, still strong but by theory it should do good to cool the intercooler and have a better density of air. The cooler the air inside the intercooler, the denser it is (more volume). I'll be replacing the stock intercooler soon with a bigger and larger TMIC. Once that's done then the scoop will make a big difference, along with an IC water sprayer and a tune.

The "half barrier" is an excellent idea mate, the bottom half of the barrier is hardly even serving a purpose. I dont know anyone else who has done it.
