Subaru Impreza WRX STi burns in Trinidad

It is unknown how the fire started, but what we do know is that it was totally preventable. A Subaru will never catch on fire if left stock; the quality is by far superior and will never ignite if left alone. By the looks of this STi, it was probably modified incorrectly which led to the unfortunate. Having a proper seal on all fuel connections, especially those located near the turbo, is extremely important.

Countless vehicles have been lost due to ignorance and malfeasance towards general automotive practice. All turbocharged cars are going to experience exponential engine bay heat compared to that of a naturally aspirated vehicle. Why? Thermal energy is what is used to turn the turbine which is usually located somewhere near the top of the motor. In addition to hot exhaust gasses, compressing the intake charge also creates even more heat in the engine bay. All it takes is one little fuel leak and BOOM, instant Subaru flambe.

How do we prevent the unwanted roast from occurring? Inspection, inspection, inspection! Take a few minutes out of your busy day and do a finger test of all fuel connections in the engine bay. Power steering fluid is also flammable, and should it drip down on the header it could catch fire as well. Rigorous inspection of all flammable materials is required if you are modifying your vehicle. Disregard the rule of inspection and suffer the ultimate consequence; having to watch your Subaru burn!
