    Thumbs up New here.

    Name is Chris, I have had my 2006 wrb wrx tr since November 2011. Bought it with no intention of modding it. It now has an SPT catback, Catless DP, AP stage 2 flash, Kartboy SS and shiny Cobb turbo heatshield haha. Just checking in. Pics


    Fancy little boost gauge.



    Solid brass knob my buddy made me.





    Thanks for having me!

    Yes! It's friggin terrible. I need to make some sort of sock or something to go over it when it gets hot.

    Thanks! I thought it felt quick stock for about 2 weeks. Then found myself wondering, what it were a little quicker...... Now I am back to thinking that again

    That is for sure my least favorite thing about the car is the fuel mileage.

    Welcome!

    For the shift knob covering you could use a Crown Royal bag I have used them for that purpose in the past and they work great!

    I was considering that but would have to "mod" it to make it smaller haha.

    That is what the drawstring is for lol. Plus you can buy the smaller crown royal bottle. They all come with bags I think.

    If you have a lady friend who is good at knitting that might be an option as well.

    of you can take the crown royal bag, snip a slit down the side, an ziptie it at the bottom so its tight on there
