    Welcome!

    You said you bought it stock so did you add the air intake yourself?

    Yes, i just recently put it on. Along with full exhaust, coilovers, short throw shifter, bov, radiator and hoses, slotted and drilled brakes, anti lift kit, and camber kit. I have 3k hids for fogs, 10k hids for head lights, radiator cooling plate, alternator shield and cf hood to still put on.

    Its hard to find time for my newly found love with work and family. Its came a long way in a month and will continue to make progress. Thanks for all the "welcomes" I look forward to being a member on this forum

    Welcome to the forums, and nice scoob
    Just some friendly advice, I really hope the full exhaust has a tune to go with it..If not, look into cobb AP's. Subaru's aren't as nice as hondas when you mod them....If you don't tune it, you'll be in for a new engine. Also, subaru's stock air intake is good to 350+whp, if not more, in most cases. Since subaru's use a MAF, or Mass Air Flow Sensor, as opposed to airspeed density, when you do things like put on air intakes, it messes with your cars a/f ratio...bad idea. Also, because the MAF reads the air input in the intake, any post-intake release (Such as a BOV) removes air in a way that your ECU cannot compensate for, causing temporary lean and rich conditions....also not good. I would seriously consider replacing the stock intake and bypass valve, as they are more than efficient enough for your needs. 02-03 are a little nicer with not having to tune with exhaust modifications....but with a full TBE, I would highly suggest a tune. Trust me- You don't want to replace your subaru's engine. Been there....done that.

    Edit: Just a note, the BOV lean/rich conditions are a mechanical issue, and cannot be tuned out. Without a MAF delete, and with it a new engine management system, that BOV is just going to hurt you big time.

    A simple cobb stage 1 tune with an AP will increase your power and driveability a fair bit. With that exhaust, stage II is possible, which is even nicer. Try to avoid sticking a FMIC on, however cool they do admittedly look...it's just another thing to hurt you. Good luck : )

    Thank your for the advice. I did have it tuned after the exhaust was installed. I did not know that abot the intake or bov. Woudnt I notice problems that would come with the 2?? I haven't experienced any idle/running problems since install of intake and bov. With my reading and being pretty knowledgable about hondas.... Seems this subie thing is a complete 180 from what I already know about cars. Thank you for your time that u spent writing me about subies I spent alot of money on these parts and would like to keep them. I'll do some more reading

    I can understand wanting to protect your investment, but really, especially for the BOV, there's a HUGE thread on here entitled "the big BOV thread". Use the search function, you'll find it quite easily. It answers many things about BOV's. The idle/rich condition with the BOV happens when you shift, and the air intake is hit or miss as to whether you'll get benefits. Good luck with it again : )
