    New to the fourms

    Whats's up everyone? My name is Chad recently a few months ago I purchased a 2004 WR Blue STi and I can say I am very pleased with my purchase. I bought it bone stock so needless to say i have done some mods already. First on my list was the V2 Cobb AP flashed to stage one instantly. Noticed a decent change in drive ability immediately. Next I purchased the HKS Cat-Back Exhuast system. Then I started to move to the suspension I have 24mm front and rear Whiteline Swaybars and Swaybar bushings. I also did Kartboy adjustable endlinks. And now that I have it away for winter so I can prepare for a Downpipe, Coilovers, and possibly a FMIC. Still not sure if im going to change the turbo yet i hear ups and downs, and another conflicting issue is im not sure of any tuners in the western PA area yet for Subaru's near Greensburg. Other than that I enjoy this car very much and look forward to getting some first hand knowledge from other owners about products and experiences with there subarus

    welcome to the club chad.

    as far as your future mods- ditch the FMIC idea. a lot of the time they're just installed for looks & arent a necessity until you significantly upgrade your turbo. most claim that a FMIC on a stock turbo or lightly upgraded turbo will cause lag and decrease in throttle response.

    Still not sure yet considering I get alot of forced induction parts at little to no cost at all i dont want to get into something again where its completely ridonculous and not streetable anymore like my other cars that's kind of the reason why I got the STi as a daily driver so I may do a 60-1 dual ball set up with a stage 5 ported turbine .82 A/R is too big so im kinda feeling a .63 A/R
