    08 Wrx

    Just picked up an 08 WRX on Wednesday. Its alot different from my old car. but overall I'm very happy with it. I used to drive an Audi B5 S4. However the maintenance was starting to get out of control. every week it was something new, and honestly i just dont have the time for it anymore. Needed to get into something a little more reliable. Does anyone have any idea of what kind of boost these cars are running stock? I probally wont mod this car out for long time (if ever). I put alot of money in the S4 and dont have it to throw around right now. But i would still like to do a few small things. wheels exhaust intake. Who makes software for our car?

    Welcome, did you get the 4 or 5 door?

    Intakes do not yeild any power gains, however they do make a cool sound of air getting sucked it. I think cobb is the only company with engine mgmt right now, maybe you could open source too. Alot of stuff is still in production. Check out supplier sites like www.oakos.com or www.jscspeed.com Just remember Subaru reserves the right to deny a warrenty claim if they feel the failure of a part was casued by an aftermarket modification. Subaru has their own "aftermarket" line of parts called SPT, that will not casue trouble if you need to get a warrenty claim started.

    Wheres the pics?
