    I have a 2018 WRX premium with 49k miles. I was looking into Turbo blankets and header wraps and was wondering if they’re actually effective and give results? And if so is a tune necessary for it? They claim it spoils the turbo quicker, while keeping the engine bay cooler, and heat soak to a...

    I have a 2016 wrx and was able to seek out a 2018 wrx engine. I know they are both the FA20, but does anybody know if there are issues with putting the 2018 engine into the 2016 wrx?

    I highsided my 2011 subaru wrx driving into a thick snow mound and had to use a buddies winch to get me out. I don't know if it's a coincidence, but whenever I am pulling into a parking spot and having to turn the steering wheel hard I get a rough idle and the engine bogs down (doesn't stall)...

    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.
