    2006 WRX 2.5i oil change/spark plugs and wires change

    Hi, iv owned a subaru in the past but never a WRX so a little knew to it. i have a 2006 WRX 2.5 and the only modifications i have so far is a COBB cutback exhauhst. Im mechanically inclined and looking to change my oil and oil filter as well as my spark plugs and wires. kinda OCD when i buy a car i guess. Feel like i have to change every kind of filter or fluid in it. Im planning on buying synthetic oil and an OEM oil filter from a subaru dealership. I have no idea if i should get OEM spark plugs and wires or go with other ones. Any information or suggestions for my oil and spark plug changes or any other kind of maintenance would be greatly appreciated. thank you!!

    Regular NGK plugs are fine.. iridium if you want to go longer between changes, copper has better spark but needs to be changed more often (I do mine at least every 15k). There are no wires, so you can't change them.

    Hey, sorry for the late reply back. But thanks! Definitely did not know about the wire thing. Guess I'm still used to doing stuff on my jeep ha. Cheers!

    The WRX uses coil-packs to transfer charge directly to the spark plug. Since there are no wires, there is less resistance and less loss of energy to heat.
