Is there anything different on the 14wrx that anyone knows? Great thread btw
Here's a video demonstration on my WRX - http://youtu.be/X6RkpFnkxr4
Varex has been used on many cars at Powertune Australia. Cars with well over 500hp.
Just wondering if its necessary to get the accessport installed before you put in a a cold air intake? I have the perrin cold air intake. my car is the 2005 wrx 2.0l
Yes, do them both at the same time or the accessport first. Unless cobb has come out with a new map for that intake, your perrin intake will not work with the maps you download from Cobb's website (OTS maps), you will need a custom tune or risk potential problems with the OTS maps. Read the "map notes" to determine what intake systems they support.
Looking for some advice. I'm a first time subbie owner with a 2010 sti. Current mods include:
Cobb intake, downpipe, and AP at stage 2
Kartboy short shift and front/rear shift bushings
Cusco front tower bar
In mail is a kartboy pitch stop and cusco rear tower bar, with quick release bolts
Next pieces I'm going to be putting in are:
Eibach lowering springs (1") with 25mm front and 22mm rear sways
Kartboy front and rear endlinks
Beatrush engine and tranny mounts
Process west tmic
And looking at possibly a mishimoto rad fan setup.
Also, is a carbon fiber drive shaft really worth it?
This is a progressive build and I've had the car for about 7 months now. I loved it. And now love it more. I have been doing all the work myself, even if some of it is new to me. I plan on doing as much as i can by myself unless necessary due to extreme difficulty or time required (i work usually 6 days a week.) I planned it to be a dd with occasional autox, but I'm not afraid of a "non cushy ride".
So. Comments on current mods and planned mods. Advice on anything i may have over looked. Right now, i plan on working on suspension stuff but thinking i would like a bit more power down the road, as it wont take me long to get use to cobb ap stage 2.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Glad i joined, reminds me a bit of the old forum i was in. I use to have an s12 (aka 84-88 200sx)

Welcome to ClubDub! Go with what 11blackSTi said, I've only ever heard good things about RCE
I have bad luck:
Thanks for the info, I'll look into them. Some of what you listed i was looking into but was unsure of the real difference it made. Annnnnd i already have the tires.
So, did some reading and decided on the RCE yellows. Also, some RCE sways afterwards. Thanks for the info.
I have bad luck:
Getting both front and rear. 0.6" drop in height for both front and rear. 330lb and 335lb are the front/rear spring rates.
I was hoping to drop it a little lower but I'll deal for those spring rates.
Looking for some advice I'm new here just recently purchased 2015 wrx, I'm looking into giving it some more power & torque , I've recently got a custom exhaust done.
Some stuff I want to get is coilovers I was debating between tein mono sports and fortune auto wasn't sure which ones are better. And upgrade my tires/wheels to some 18x9.5 wasn't sure what size tires
Also was thinking about getting AP and probably getting an etune from brentuning, I know he has a etune for stock wrx to give a little push.
Any advice guys?
