    Hey everyone, first time writing on a forum… I recently moved to Canada for college and am looking to buy a car. I set my mind on a awd platform and I’m between a wrx/sti or older gen s4. I’m leaning more towards the Subaru tho. That’s why I’m here. Thanks to an insurance claim from my old car...

    Hey what’s up everyone. Yesterday I was driving my 2010 wrx hatchback. I never really drive my car hard at all. I was at around 3.5k rpm, dipping into boost trying to get around a car and then my boost went all the way down..I heard a woosh and then a couple pops. When I pulled over after and...

    Hey y'all! I'm at a loss right now. I can't find where my coolant is leaking from. To try to fix it, I replaced my radiator, thermostat, and upper/lower hoses. And a small elbow hose that is close to the thermostat. It still was leaking. When it leaks, with the car off, the dripping...

    Alright my name's Ben and I'm new here so cut me some slack with this. I have a 2004 wrx, not an sti, and I am trying to do a turbo upgrade.

  8. Everyday Impreza Talk
    Hello, I'm about to purchase a 03 Subaru Impreza wrx. In the description it says the owner tuned to boost pressure to 15 psi, is this a safe pressure or will it wear out the internals faster or damage components. Thanks for replying in advance

    I've found a flasher module I like and id like to have it do all 3 brake lights. Would prefer to only buy one so where is the main wires for the brake lights that I could install it into.
