    Hello.

    Hey whats up guys. Im Jason i own a 06 duramax but my old lady has a 04 WRX that im looking into modding up a bit.

    Im a manager at Alligator diesel performance and my knowledge is in the diesel field and not with gassers so bear with me here. lol. The car already has a exhaust on it, after reading around here a bit this morning im thinking about doing the up-pipes and slapping a cobb tuner on it. Only problems ive found with the car is the 4th gear grinds going into gear and it is pissing fuel from somewhere near the back of the car.

    if anybody has any suggestions id appreciate it

    Welcome

    You talk about fuel from the back; you smell fuel or see it on the ground?

    Welcome. You might be diesel guy, but at least turbocharging is nothing new!

    Coeur D'Alene, huh? I've been there a few times with my grandparents (they're over in Spokane), it's a pretty area.

    Nice truck, too.

    I had a similar problem with my 02 WRX. i bought it in the winter and when it was cold out i would get in the car and smell a strong fuel smell. I never noticed any puddles but when it was warm it didnt happen. I brought it to the dealer and there was a recall on my car for the fuel lines that i guess the previous owner never got. They replaced all the fuel lines for free and have had no fuel smell since. I dont know if that is the problem you are having but it could be.
