    new 2009 Wrx owner

    Hey guys what's up I heard this was a great site where people were a little nicer than say NASIOC. I'm looking forward to learning from everyone. I want to go Stage 11 on my WRX but i'm afraid of the warranty. What's everyone's experience with dealerships are they very mod friendly? i used to have a Cobalt SS and the Chevy dealers were pretty good about modifications but I don't know how they are with Subaru

    Is that the Stage with the flux capacitor?


    Hi and welcome. Are you asking if you do a undealership mod will they kill the warranty? Or are you asking if the dealership will work on a modded cor?

    Welcome to the forums. I'm thinking you meant Stage 2, not 11... but as far as dealerships being mod friendly, it really depends on the dealership. Best bet is to ask some of your local modded WRX / STi / Leggy / Fozzy owners and see what they say about friendly dealers. Good luck and happy modding.

    Is there such things as a "dealership" mod other than a ridiculously priced cat-back exhaust or air intake? I know on the new Cobalt SS turbos (I had the supercharged crap one) supposedly you can get a little $500 upgrade that gives you like 40-50hp and it's all within the warranty they just do a little ECU tune and change out like a MAP sensor or something. Does Subaru offer anything like that? I knew the salesman at my dealer wouldn't know a darn thing about it so I figured screw asking him. They're so freaking stupid at the dealershops sometimes.

    Haha sorry guys yea I meant "Stage 2" but wanted to be cool and write it like "II" but it came out "11" hahahahaha yea right huh no one says they have a Stage 11 WRX man that's funny I cracked myself up. I always see a lot of WRXs and STis at my campus but I never get to talk to them I guess I should.

    Thanks for the warm welcome so far though guys.

    Yes, I do too. I was just getting a kick out of the idea of someone going around actually saying "yea, my WRX is Stage 11. Don't mess with me" lol so I envisioned something insane like 4 turbos. One for each cylinder!

    Congrats on it. The dealer will work on a modded car but if there is a problem with your car and the mod relates to it, they can void that part of the warranty.
