    New STI owner in SW FL....

    Hey All,

    Just picked up an 07 black Sti. I would love to meet up with some fellow subie owners in SWFL or may be even the Tampa area.

    I look forward to meeting and chatting with everyone.

    This is my first Sti, but I've had a subaru impreza L, a 2.5 rs wagon and an 05 wrx.

    I love the car so far, but I have inherited a few problems from the pervious owner.

    Well after a horrible first evening w/ the clifford alarm. I am back (hopefully) to enjoying this car. It has been modified in many ways, but the previous owner must have kept his accessport. I will be ordering one tonight because I run really lean and get terrible gas milage.

    I just test drove an 06 sti today? I don't know too much about it but wow what a rush. In the dash it has a duel turbo tuner which by looking at the engine bay looks kike it has a twin turbo. I will hopefully be buying this car soon. Also I'm in Miami FL. is there a local club doing here that I could met up with?

    welcome both of you, good luck with the accessport.. Since the car has a front mount intercooler it will be cheaper for you to take the car to a tuner and have it professionally tuned/dyno'd

    Hello hello! Im a Naples man myself! Glad to see another (modified) STi in the game!

    You have a mod list at all? I've definately been around the block with my car (fixing up stuff). I also have the name (and number lol) of a reputable tuner who comes down to the area every so often


    Also, you should see about pestering the guy who sold you the car to get the AP back. He wont be able to do much with it (or sell it) if its still linked to your ECU....

    Yeah I figured a full tune is need, but I was hoping the accessport would help get my car not to idle so rough and not run so lean. It almost stalled today.
    The list appears to be:
    Greddy turbo back exhaust
    Greddy FMIC
    Samco Inlet hose
    Samco Intake hose
    Short Ram Intake
    Headers
    Up-pipe w/ tial external wastegate and dump tube
    I think a Turbo XS BoV
    Blitz boost controller

    few gauges and a tubo timer as well.

    is it upgraded or stock turbo? You should probably check for leaks if you haven't already. Was there any hints the guy gave you about where he had it tuned? Or did he do it himself?
