    I think I'm going to kill myself because of this little devil!
    Your stage 2, so youll probably get over 16 eventually.
    Im noticing great values for first gear. 14.7 at about 5k.

    even with stage 1, the car still points its nose WOT in third gear. This is pretty remarkable. One guy in a truck noticed my glowing accessport. "What the hell is that ?"

    heres the kicker, (12.5psi at 2900).

    so... who here has experience with up-pipe installs? or at least a downpipe install?

    I can offer cash, or beer.
    i did my own uppipe, and i have tools
    beer will be fine

    actually, i have STi mounts to go in as well
    perhaps we can do an install day of some sort.

    TurboFlat04,

    You are in luck. Shibby and I both have done our own installs, and I even made my own Tutorial thread on how to do it yourself. Check here to see it: Uppipe, Downpipe, Muffler INSTALL GUIDE!

    I'm down with helping whenever you decide to do your install. I just blew all my cash recently, so I won't be doing any parts installs however.

    I saw your car at Wagner last week when I was getting my new radiator. They said the limited slip usually goes out when you do too many donuts........I assume they covered it under warranty right?

    Tubby, are you still using your CAI? I remember reading on the Cobb site that they have to tweak Stage 2 a little if you have an intake.

    I'm still using my Injen CAI. I've only heard of serious problems with Cobb's stuff and the AEM intakes that are out there. Supposedly, the AEM stuff gives wildly fluctuating MAF sensor readings and cannot be tuned for with any tuning package. I KNOW Cobb already has a map that's tuned for Injen intakes, so I'm going to wait it out and see what I might be able to download in the near future.

    As of yet, I haven't experienced ANY pinging or problems with detonation even at WOT. The AccessPORT still has some learning to do with my car, but I'm very satisfied with the increased boost levels and added powerband smoothness.

    I know your ecu is still learning, but have you noticed a bit more top end power also? That's good you've had no pinging etc....

    I want my accessPORT right now!

    Yea, I got my AccessPort today! IntegratoWrx came by, we put stage 2 on his, had some fun, then put stage 1 on mine. Very, very nice. I'll let him tell you his thoughts (he may be crying right now since we put his back to stock).

    Yes my drive home was boring with my Stage 0. I was very impressed with Stage 2 though. As tubby said, the car just seems very smooth. A lot easier to cruise around in 1st and 2nd at lower speeds. I was getting just over 16 psi in 4th and 5th, and the top end definitely was impressive. I can't wait for mine to arrive, I'm hoping it will be here any day now. Stage 1 definitely felt considerably better also. Fatgroundhog should be getting his downpipe sometime next week and quickly moving up to stage 2.

    I'm headed to warm and sunny Florida on Saturday, so I won't be going to Kil-Kare. Saturday's are the money races for the domestics right? No imports I don't think.

    Yea, that was my car. For the first 12k i beat the livin hell out of the car, till i broke second gear last year. Now i have 27k, ive been pretty much babyin it. It blew out in the rain, but Wayne said that diffs arent that common to explode like mine did.
    Yea wagner subaru is by far THE best dealer in the midwest.

    "Now, i turned my head on a few modifications I saw. I know they arent a big deal performance wise, but other dealers would ask you for 1200 bucks before you get the keys." -wayne

    He told me that abusive driving can cause the diff to go out.
    He said, "be nice to the car, they will last. Oh... and It drives like a dream." when i started the car I noticed they burned about an 8th tank probably "testing the new diff".

    I'm really glad i decided to have it worked on there versus White Allen.


    Im even more glad this happened BEFORE i got the accessport.

    Just coming in from my Stage 1 drive to work. Very nice. Ahhhh. The car should be this way from the factory. I wasn't even getting on it and you can still tell. Its just wonderful.

    I guess I could offer to prostitute my AccessPort out for a few hours at a time. I'll go back stock, let you go to whatever, drive for a little while, then you go back stock and let me have my toy back. The last part is key. You must let me have my toy back.

    I also promised to plug South Coast Subaru, the Cobb dealer I got my AccessPort through (same price). They actually may have one coming in with Integratowrx's that hasn't been claimed yet.

    Good news on the AccessPORT everyone! Sounds like we're all quite satisfied with our purchases! I'm really enjoying the extra power, but it's too wet to have any real fun with it right now.

    On a side note, what's up with this when I log in every day? I see Fatgroundhogs' name! I think we are both on the same proxy server here at the base, and somehow your login name always comes up every day when I go to ClubWRX.net, even though I'm logged in! It's really really weird.

    I can't read your PM's or get into your settings, so you don't have to worry. It's just quite odd that this is happening.

    Whoa, Integratowrx's does that too- he loggs on and it says "fatgoundhog" but then he gets his own PMs. Who knows???? It did kinda make me scared when I saw that though. Maybe that just means I'm cool.
