I don't know too many people out here that are into Subies, mostly hondas. I have the best of both worlds but my roots are honda. Im just trying to network in case I need advice or help workin on my car. I got a 03 Wrx and 94 Civic HB.
    The closest I can think of, and I'll name each member by location, Mira Loma, Ontario, Pomona.

    I graduated from Ayala back in the day, so Chino Hills is my old stomping grounds.

    Oh Ok. Yeah I've had my car since 2004 and I was all into drag racing, an trying to get my car fast but I took a few steps backwards and sold most of my parts off and I was planning on selling. I changed my mind, and now Im starting suspension and building from there. I need help getting advice from others with their setups etc that live close enough to meet etc.. Im trying to get my alignment and overall suspension dialed in for good street, and drag setup. This is my weekend car now, so I can take my time with it.

    Any help would be appreciated, also if you guys ever have any meets and such, I appreciate cars and would be down to roll if I have time.

    My name is Dodge C.

    hey Fahren how do you like the forester? im thinking of getting one, i might the Rex to my little brother. i need something that can tow some weight and the forester can tow like 2400lbs which is enough for the trailer and two bikes, dont remember how much the wrx can tow but dont know how comfortable i would be with towing stuff in a car like i have, not sure yet but i might be going the forester route or something else.

    i can't imagine that the towing rate would be very different. it's the same car. only with a 2.5 block. but yeah i wouldn't want to tow it with yours.

    i love the forester. it has a higher feel to it. and you sit a little more upright in it than i did in the wagon. i really like it but i'm a truck lover. so it fits me well.

    yeah i really like the forester, the wrx says it has a max of like almost 2000 lbs but you need to have electric brakes on the trailer and stuff so its not really for towing and stuff, i dont really want to get a full SUV or anything like that. At the moment i go to the track like once a month and when i start working i will be able to afford to go more then that so i really need something that will be able to tow a small trailer, two bikes and all the gear and stuff so thats why i was looking at the forester. Its either that or i will have to look iinto some type of SUV.
    to bad my car isnt stock or close to it cause i would just trade it in, and i cant really sell it cause not gonna get anywhere near what i put into it and i would imagine it would be hard to sell a heavily moddified car anyway. Unless someone wants to swap engines and stuff hahaha then i could trade it in.

    thanks charlie for letting me borrow your accessport cable. i was able to do some logging with it and my fuel trims are all over the place. im thinking of going with smaller injectors. also im getting misfire codes in all cylinders and the stock ecu pulls timing really bad when i barely step on the gas (not in limp mode tho)
    im about to use enginuity to see if i can do a reflash to be used in conjunction with the utec. hopfully it will work and help out the drivability problems im having. hopefully i dont mess anything up
    ANSON: do you still have your stock injectors?

    i still need the flash block plug. but ya, i can fix your idle. i raised mine about 25rpm so it idles about 720-735 instead of stock 690-710. i just downloaded all the software i need to use openecu and enginuity. so, im going to do a bunch of reading so im well informed before i proceed with the reflash. if it becomes a success, i will offer free ecu reflashes to f4 members (using basemaps offered by enginuity and openecu and maybe some fine tuning after)
