    New to the Subaru family

    Hey all,
    I bought my first WRX yesterday and I gotta say it is a thrill. Bought it from an Dealer in Fairbanks and it was repo'd from Anchorage, (350 miles away). I had the vehicle checked over by a mechanic I know and trust. It seems to have quite a bit of work already done to it, what are signs to tell if it is tuned or not? I believe it is, but I am not sure. Also how can I figure out the exact brand of the exhaust? Just some silly things like that I am interested in, otherwise it runs great and hearing the blowoff valve is awesome as well!

    Welcome to the forum. Not sure how to tell if its tuned or not. Some exhausts have the brands on the tip. Blowoff valves are difficult with these cars. If it has one it may be tuned or you may wanna take it off.

    welcome. i would definitely look into a different intake brand. injen is notorious for being pretty awful.
