    STI Baby! It's my time for drive time.

    Ok. So I got my STI bout 5 months now.

    It's pretty damn clean, rides like a champ.
    But I really aint much of a racer, though I do it from time to time.

    Question : I here wrx's pulling around al the time and hear them sucking air every shift. My STI don't do it, or if it does, doesn't do it very loud. And I missing something here? What's that all about?

    And,

    I got a megan racing suspension. Don;t ask me details, cuz I don't know them. Its stiff as hell (not that I care). Anyone got a opinion on that brand?

    I'd like to mod a bit, but don;t have a clue where to start, but that don;t mean I am lazy either. Someone wants to point me to a link, that will work just fine.

    By the by - Every time I drive by some one else in a STI or WRX, I get the wave and the honk.

    Thanx,
    Matt

    1) either they have the intake silencer delete (good!)

    or they have

    2) a BOV. (terrible mod! never do it!)

    Hey wrxtreme06, I just read your comments earlier about that :
    i have the I//S delete and it IS louder than stock. you will definitely recognize it.


    i've said this plenty of times though.

    *what is more important to you?*

    having a PSHHH sound? or the longevity/performance of your car?

    the serious effect of a BOV is basically this: your ECU will be injecting the WRONG AMOUNT OF FUEL into your cylinders. this can cause bucking and can even cause your spark plugs to foul. aside from that, it can CLOG your cat and cause it to even melt.


    so you chose.

    are you going to be dumb and put your cars health at risk just for a SOUND?

    seems pretty silly to fuccck up a 25,000 car (or a 30K+ if you have an STi) just for PSHHHHH


    True that. I will look into that. It looks cheap too.... Just like replacing a peice of plastic with a open steel elbow.

    Hey, I aint car enough savy, where is that on a 06?

    here this is what the stock 06 bay looks like:




    heres what it looks like after a short ram intake/silencer delete was done:



    some people prefer to buy an elbow so you dont have an ugly opening but, i really dont care enough to spend 40 bucks on it. no one sees my engine bay anyway haha

    I guess I was more curious then anything. I think I will just leave it the heck alone. If I am going to mod it, I will put a new turbo in it.


    - What do you think about the OW - 30 Amsoil Synthetic in these cars?

    no one sees my engine bay anyway haha Well I hope you service at least.
