  1. So I bought a Fiesta ST....

    Off Topic
    Nice buy! I drove my friends Focus ST and that thing surprised the hell out of me. Ford is doing some very good things these days.
  2. Just a quick question on AWD and the WRX...

    Transmission & AWD
    No more than can be expected, really. Exposed metal will rust, so exhaust bits and unsealed or unpainted parts will have issues eventually, but Subaru does a good job at sealing and painting undercarriage bits (body paint is something of a different story). The main thing that comes to mind is I...
  3. Just a quick question on AWD and the WRX...

    Transmission & AWD
    Fellow Utahrd here, anyone who tells you that AWD isn't a huge advantage in the snow is either retarded or trying to sell you something. There is a reason why all three of my most recent car purchases have been AWD, and made by Subaru to boot.
  4. New engine build question about driving

    Engine Modifications
    I certainly wouldn't. Especially if you know the current map is ****. Trailer it on over there if the tuner isn't capable enough to get you a workable map beforehand.
  5. Problems with radio display

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Using what? A device via BT or USB, or an MP3 CD?
  6. How To Run Open Downpipe? Help!

    Engine Modifications
    Do not do this.
  7. 2002 wrx wont start ( might be more then starter )

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Sounds exactly like a dead battery to me.
  8. Coilover dampening adjustments

    Suspension & Wheels
    That all depends on how it handles right now. If you're not getting the desired handling characteristics out of the car, make adjustments and try again. Around town I went for as neutral as I could get, on the autox course, I prefer a minor amount of oversteer and made my adjustments...
  9. new 04 wrx owner

    Congrats on the purchase.
  10. Rebuilt kit

    Everyday Impreza Talk
    I think somebody was somewhat talking out of their ass, to be honest. There might be a burnt valve, or something on top of a bad piston, but I highly doubt there is something wrong with any of the lifters in the heads. If there really is no compression in one of the cylinders, though, the engine...
  11. Rebuilt kit

    Everyday Impreza Talk
    Exactly how do you know the lifter has "blown"? The reason your diagnosis is suspect is because the WRX has solid lifters, how that would "blow" in any way, shape, or form, is beyond me. Also, the rebuild kit you linked doesn't do anything for the valve train, it's a bottom end rebuild kit...
  12. Is it bad for my car or my ap?

    Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    There's nothing using the power at that point, so no, not bad for your battery. The cable itself doesn't use any power, it's a means of transmission.
  13. Oil Changes

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Consult the owners manual, my newbish friend. If you question what your oil change intervals should be, you can send in samples to have them analyzed. These analyses will give you a better idea of how your chosen oil is doing, and how long it should be staying in your engine. To be done at oil...
  14. 05 wrx tail lights wont turn off

    General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    The newb switch strikes again!
  15. Want to buy a 2004 STI with 130k on body but 3k on built motor. Help.!.

    Car Purchasing Forum
    I'd say you're better off keeping the M3.
  16. Help to monitor factory ECU w/ Cobb AP

    Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    It'll run as if on the stock tune. So for all intents and purposed, it's the actual factory settings.
  17. Help to monitor factory ECU w/ Cobb AP

    Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    In the Cobb map manager, is there not a "Stock Mode" map to download? They've had those available for every other year WRX before the GR, so it would surprise me if that was not available at all.
  18. Accessport 0-60 time

    Engine Modifications
    Depends on your definition of accurate, I suppose. Something to rely on when people ask for details? No. Something to give you an idea of how your car is performing? Sure.
  19. Clutch wouldnt hold on dyno :(

    Transmission & AWD
    Hybrid build... of the engine? You rebuilt the engine, but didn't bother replacing an old and worn clutch while you were in there? Strange. And as already stated, go with the Exedy stage 1 kit. There's no reason to have anything beyond that at this point.
  20. help plz

    Engine Modifications
    I don't think I've ever seen that before. What year and model did you get the engine from? Is it an EJ205, or some other variant?
