    Congrats on the purchase...but perhaps your foot gets stuck in those gears randomly at the same time everytime?

    Haha honestly I'm not sure though. You might want to post this up in the Engine Mod forum...more people with good technical knowledge troll around there.

    Also, if its that new, it should still be under some kind of warranty, so take it back to the place of purchase and be like "yo fool...fix my ****e. Shouldn't be doin this yo!"

    Do the revs do the jumping when you are shifting? Do you feel any increase in power does the car speed up when it does that? For the car to just randomly jump from 3K to 4K and then back to 3K without pressing the clutch, or the gas can't be a normal thing. Is the throttle getting stuck perhaps?

    Oh, and congrats on the blobeye!

    i posted this in engine mods and they're saying its a dead clutch but heres what happens ill be driving about to shift from 3rd to 4th the rpms rev real fast to 4 and yes i can feel it speed up and then it drops down. I had a feeling it was the clutch so should i just go ahead and get the stock clutch or pay some more money for a more durable one?

    oh and thank you i see your from texas also. Im loving the subi community, every wrx i see are alway super nice and give a wave. Im not to bummed about the clutch it could be worse and i really love this car and cant wait to do some mods. The cool thing is when i bought her she came with a turboxs tbe.. Or im pretty sure its a turboxs the down pipe looks like a 4." Im guessing the previous owner was a member of nasioc because it has stickers on the back windows

    Unless you are planning on going crazy with mods, use the car for racing or autox then an oem one will be just fine.

    Yeah, i'm in texas. Not by choice though. Originally from Oregon. Way on the other side from where everyone else though. There is a small subaru seen here in E.P., don't get much love though on the wave. Maybe 1 out of 5 i see.
