    i was on the freeway, there was traffic. i was going about 10-15mph and i put it in 3rd i let out the clutch, and i hear a big BOOM. next thing i know 3rd gear grinds and if i drive in 3rd sounds like metal rubbing against metal. not a pretty thing to hear.

    now im going to bring this to subaru, but since im cobb stage 2 should i put back my stock downpipe on?

    Damn dood, that stinks. Whereabouts are you in SoCal? If Renick doesn't work out for you, Santa Monica Subaru is also an option. They are very warranty friendly to aftermarket parts. The guy there is Reza, he tells me the service dept can't detect the stage 2 map anyway, so it won't matter. He also opens the service ticket (instead of the service tech) to ensure it is warrantable.

    good luck.

    I'm confused. Not to be a ****, but why would you go into 3rd gear at 10-15 mph? Seems like 2nd would have been a better choice...

    theres nothing wrong with going to 3rd @ 15 mph hell i can go to 5th @ 10mph it wont damage any thing, ur car just wont go any were.

    damge usually happens when u try to downshift to 4th but miss and hit 2nd thats when motors blow and trannys blow.
