I have been driving Subaru's for several years now, and just recently had the opportunity to purchase a WRX for an incredible deal from a friend of mine.
I've been lurking the forums for a while now and figured I ought to join!
It is an 2003 WRX Sedan with 70K miles.
Mods: Aftermarket downpipe, catback exhaust, short ram intake, short throw shifter, springs, strut bars, wheels and tires, boost controller, fuel cut defencer.
The car is a daily driver for me, and I'm interested in using this car year-round for years to come. As of now, the boost controller is set to allow 1.79 hkpa, which I understand is dangerously high and can result in engine failure.
I'm looking to keep the car in its superb condition, even if it means returning several parts to stock.
Do you recommend removing the BOV, boost controller, and fuel cut defencer; and putting an oem bpv, and other stock parts back on? When I have the boost controller off, the acceleration is odd, it's hard to explain.
Or would you recommend just turning the boost controller on much lower?
