  2. Engine Modifications
    Long story short, I really didn't like the fact this Beamer boy wanted to race me just because I had a spoiler and ended up blowing my engine not paying attention to boost and oil. I ended up with a spun bearing. It doesn't seem like it would be a good idea to slap a new crank and bearing set in...

    Yesterday I was doing gravel donuts in my 2017 Wrx. My DAM dropped to 0.75 and my FBK and FKL both start to move around when the throttle is about half open. Idle and WOT show no movement and they both stay at 0. If anyone has any tips please let me know. I am very new to the car scene. Thank...

    Hey y'all. This is my first time ever posting in this forum. I'm new to car stuff and just recently installed the cobb redline cold air intake and the accessport. I'm running the 93oct stage 1 OTS tune for now. It was running just fine for the past week after installing. Never seen the DAM get...
  5. Builds
    Alright, I'm doing research before actually getting into doing this build I have in my head. Here's my hairbrained idea: Take a totaled '16 or newer WRX and put the entire driveline into my '03 Ford Ranger. Why? I don't think it's been done before. How? That's why I'm here, to collect info...
  6. Interior Mods
    I replaced my automatic shift knob with a new shift knob and adapter from Illinium Flux. Everything works fine, I can push it down and move it from park to reverse, neutral, and drive but the only issue I am having is that I can move the shifter from drive to reverse without pressing it down but...
  7. Maintenance, service, and repair
    So I’ve been search for hours for answers and I can’t find anything. My 2015 wrx has two check engine codes a p2004 and a p2005 I’m decent at handling my own mechanical fixes but I can’t find info on the part causing the issue. Google says it’s the intake manifold runner control but when I look...

  10. Everyday Impreza Talk
    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...

    I have a buddy with a 2009 WRX. We were doing some trouble shooting and he only boosts to 9 PSI. We blocked the wastegate line and got to 13 (stock boost) and the boost solenoid bucked the car and gave a CEL for turbocharger/supercharger solenoid. We don’t know exactly what the issue is. We...

    I bought a 2011 WRX from a younger guy about two months ago. Managed to get it to scrape by safety, and its been bringing new problems since. The guy supposedly had it stage two tuned, then brought it back to stockish to sell. Its got an aftermarket blowoff valve, invidia q300 exhaust, and tein...
  14. Engine Performance
    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...
  16. Engine Modifications
    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. I have been looking at a vf39 or a vf48(that's the 2018+ sti turbo correct me if I'm wrong). I am wondering which I should go for. Or if I should just save...
  17. 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 connected the new fog lights and they did not turn on. I checked the voltage of the end of the fog light connection and it read 0 voltage. I checked all my fuses and they were all fine. I am thinking of completely replacing the fog light wiring. Would like to know where from the firewall does...
