    Hi, I'm new here and also new to the world of Subaru. There is one thing that just bothers me when I look at the WRX engine bay, it's that black plastic(correct me if I'm wrong) intake manifold. Is it too much of a hassle or can I just replace it with the STI's red forged(correct me again) intake manifold?

    You can use a STi intake manifold but you would also need the STi TMIC ( or a FMIC ), a STi turbo ( because the wrx trubo has a bolt on flange but if you use a FMIC you wouldn't need to change the turbo ) and a STi BPV ( also you could get away with not needing this if you go with a FMIC ).

    Keep the plastic manifold. It is superior in every way to the outgoing aluminum manifold.

    I'm sure this has been brought up before so delete if need-be.

    On my '12 wrx, the fog lights don't turn on with the marker lights, they only turn on when the headlights are turned on. This annoyed me so I ran a wire from the driver side marker light (constant) to the fog lights (power). So when I turn my marker lights on my fog lights are on as well. And I use them as my day time running lights.

    I installed hella horns ( that's what the relay is ) but the blue wire going to the connector is the wire I installed. I ran a wire from the marker light to the fog light. And unplugged the day time running lights. So now when I turn the parking lights on my fogs are on. And when I turn the car off with the lights still on, they automatically turn off.

    Any more pics of the fog rewire? I am looking to do this on my 13 STI.

    Really easy mod, and you don't have to take the bumper off but obviously it will be easier if you do.
