    no sir

    thanks for the quick reply!

    no, there is no humming, just wind noise, it sounded similar to the video before the humming, i know it isnt anything mechanical, because it stops if someone is 10 feet in front of me going the same speed, it is wind passing over something i believe...

    i dont have a body kit either, everything is stock on out side, except for rims and brakes... i do have a larger tmic, not sure if that is the cause or not...

    ive noticed that the wind noise is relatively loud in the wrx compared to other cars, but i think thats just how the car is built..nothing i would sweat

    another question...

    you guys are great... i was hoping the problem was just normal wind noise... typical of many hondas too (can we say that name in here??)... anyways i have another question

    to keep with my sleeper look...

    the stock canister tip is welded onto the 3" turbo back exhaust... shouldnt hurt performance at all since the weld is so far back away (yes i know, no back pressure is wanted, it is very little though)... do you think it could/would cause stress on the turbo or other problems? i am running the vishnu stage 2 setup, so it is the vf34 turbo..

    also, i am looking for an ecutek tune shop, anyone recommend anyone? i live in ohio... i am debating on doing minor tuning myself with the program software, but wanted some advice first perhaps some help.

    Just a tip welded on shouldn't hurt a thing. They are like 2.5" right?

    As for a Ecutek tuner, have you tried googling ecutek to see if they have a listing of tuner shops? Just a thought, as I don't use Ecutek.
