Either way, I was actually able to find part numbers to order them directly from Subaru and the dealership quoted me $33.95 each, which I don't find to be too bad actually. Part numbers 91123FG060 and 91123FG070 L/R.
Sorry my bad lol. Dont order from the dealership. Alot cheaper here:

Well guys havent been on in a while. A bit of an update though. In my room right now i have sitting my perrin front license plate delete, black SE wrx side badges, and a perrin shorty antenna. Had them all for like a month or so, just havent put them on yet due to work and this crappy weather lol. But i just filed my taxes today, so within the next 2-3 weeks my tbe and accessport should be on order.
So i will keep you guys updated with pics and progress as the weather breaks and i get a chance to start wrenching on the car.
Well guys, i posted in the "everyday impreza talk" forum about this company i stumbled across this website called Got Boost Inc, and i still have to give them a shout out and many thanks. I ordered all of my stuff from them wednesday, they had the best prices i could find, their customer was excellent (they answered every stupid little question i had). Plus not to mention they gave me free overnight shipping on my AP and an additional 40 dollars off of my downpipe. Thursday i received my AP, and yesterday when i got home, to my surprise, were two big invidia boxes sitting on my doorstep.
I also installed my black wrx se side badges yesterday (will post up pics later on tonight), my perrin shorty antenna, and the perrin front license plate delete plate. The car is finally starting to come together. I also contacted chris at perrin last week and like always they hooked me up. He emailed me a stage 2 93 onctane tune for the perrin cai that i have, which i already have uploaded to my AP. So now its just a matter of getting some time to install my exhaust and intake and tune it to stage 2. I cant wait!
So be ready for some picture bombing within the next week or so bc i am planning on keeping this updated to show you guys my progress and as my journal. Stay tuned!
So guys im finally getting around to posting up pics and stuff from my stage 2 install, went pretty well. Only ran into one snag the whole time.
My buddy removing the TMIC, which i recommend doing. Makes it 10x easier to get to the downpipe bolts.
TMIC gone. Perrin CAI installed.
Upper part of heatshield removed.
Now that one snag i was talking about, I have never seen this happen. I have seen the bolt broken and stripped. But when removing the nuts/bolts to the downpipe the one nut on the bolt closest to the intercooler got stuck with only like 1/10 of an inch left of thread to get it off. AND IT WAS STUCK. We tried pb blaster, heat, and everything. It would not budge. So we cut the nut off of the bolt and found this.
So, we then had to drive an hour away to hagerstown subaru bc the subaru dealership didnt have the nut or the bolt in stock, once we got back things moved right along. DP installed.
After that we installed the catback, then went around and tightened everything down, put on the GS heat shield and re-installed the TMIC. ALL DONE!
And yes i know my car was filthy!
Well guys through all of the excitement of going stage 2 and enjoying my new upgrades I forgot to do a little write up of the parts and the overall process. I will do by list of mods and thoughts of them.
Invidia catted DP:All I can really say about is PERFECT. The fitment and craftsmanship of the DP from invidia is next to none. Fit like a glove, and everything lined up perfect.
Invidia Q300 catback:Just like the DP, fitment and everything was spot on! The look it gives off with the quad tip and the added titanium tips really accents the car well. And the sound is amazing!! I have not really had any noticable drone in the cabin either. The best thing about this set-up is that its not crazy loud, you can drive around and not be annoyed, but when you punch on it, it sure lets you know it is there!
Perrin CAI:Although I had this on the car for a couple thousand miles before i took it off and waited to go stage 2, I still just wanted to say that the look and fitment of this intake are top notch, as expected from Perrin. And the sound it produces under boost is awesome. It def makes itself known.
Grimmspeed turbo heat-shield:Not much to really say here, it looks great, and fitment was spot on and adds a nice touch to the look of the engine bay.
Perrin license plate delete plate and shorty antenna:Both of these parts are very easy to put on, but such a better look to the car IMO. Im glad that i did them both and think it was money well spent on cleaning up the look of the car.
Cobb Accessport V3:As you all know, cobb makes the accessport very easy to use, and the added larger screen and the included mount make it very nice. I used the accessport manager to upload the stage 2 map from perrin, and all in all am 100% satisfied with it.
Thoughts about the install of stage 2 parts: The intake and catback were very easy and self explainatory. The only thing i can say is that the DP is the hardest part. A couple of the nuts on it were a little tricky to get to, but no big deal. I soaked everything in PB blaster an hour or so before we began the install. Everything started off smooth and good, all the nuts and bolts from the turbo to downpipe broke loose pretty easily. But, look at picture above, one of the nuts got stuck on the bolt closest to the intercooler and long story short, we ended having to cut the nut off and the bolt was totaled. Ended up having to drive an hour away to a subaru dealership to get the bolt and nut. So other than that one snag, everything went great and was pretty straight foward.
TIPS:Have a friend help, always better with an extra pair of hands; be sure to have pb blaster, bc it made life a lot easier; take your time!; and I would highly recommend ordering a couple extra bolts and nuts for the turbo to downpipe before starting, i wish i would have, would have saved me a couple hours!
Same thing happened to me with the turbo bolt and nut. But the car looks great and looks like it is coming along very nicely. Keep it up and keep us updated
