Alright fellow Subie lovers I need advice, tips, and moral support.
I am only three months deep into my first wrx and have certain issues. I got my car as a repo so the history is unknown but the car needs a few things. First let me list the specs and mods...
Original 2.0 with 90k Aspen white sedan 5spd
-Fujits F5 intake that I think I need to swap
-Turbo back exhaust w/no up pipe (need one now!)
-17" Rotas, new Toyos, lowering springs, Wilwood fronts
-previously married to a CObb, but I do NOT have the accessport
-New NGk plat plugs
Here are my issues. Since I cannot flash due to the previous accessport I will buy a new one asap after??
CEL is on due to no cat and a possible misfire on cylinder 3, but I think the bad plugs I just replaced solved this issue.
Last I checked my boost psi was @ 13.1psi but after the plug swap its running like its lean or lagging at times.
So here is where I am at. I want to keep the car alive for as long as possible but it is lagging is certain areas hence my desire for a new Cobb. @2nd gear chugs a little and after I changed my plugs I think I lost the previous real-time map.
SO we have Surgeline/Cobb in town and they helped me out in telling me what I need to do..I got quotes for a Short ram SF intake since that F5 is kinda maybe messing with my fuel/air ratio.
Also an up pipe will help me from hurting my turbo. They quoted me on a Grimmspeed up pipe which I dont know is worth the $$
So any input on a less expensive intake and up pipe would be great and any other tips would be awesome!!
