    Hey all, ever since going catless I have been experiencing blue smoke whenever I have been idling for an extended period of time. At a stoplight, it will take about a minute before it will consistently spew moderate amounts of smoke from the exhaust. I don't know what the issue can be since it...
  2. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey everyone, just today I ran into problems. For context, my car is a 2011 WRX Hatch tuned to stage 1 with accessport (it has been stage 1 for not even a week and a half), with just around 30k miles on the engine (previous owner had swapped) and 108k miles on chassis. Today I was driving home...

    Hello everyone, Suub Newb here, just bought a 2012 WRX hatch. I seem to have an oil leak on the front end of the engine, but it doesn’t seem to be any of the “normal” spots. A little more back story, the previous owner blew up the engine at the track, and had it completely rebuilt by Subaru...

    Picked up 5 qts of Red Line High Performance 5W40 as I'm due for a change soon. Curious if anyone has run this in winter? I know the specs and everything say it's fine but with our finicky EJs thought I'd ask for firsthand experience.

    I managed to get an ej25 engine block and pistons for free from a friend. I believe it is a wrx block but not sure whether it is an sti and not sure what year. I have a few questions.

    Hi guys, So my buddy has had a 02 WRX with a turbo EJ25 rotting in his yard for 6 years. I offered to buy it and he’s basically giving it away. It turns out it’s got an EJ257 in it right now with forged internals and the 2.0 heads. The current EJ257 block has a crack in it so i’ve been looking...
