    Hey everyone, As title says my wrx is only boosting 10psi at WOT. Car was hesitating a lot at higher RPMs, changed spark plugs (hesitation is gone) but the car is now only boosting to 10psi. Previously the car max boost was 18psi. I’ve checked for boost leaks and loose intercooler pipes...

  10. Transmission & AWD
    Hello, back in feb of this year i bought a wrx which trans blew out a month after. Went ahead and got a new one and a new clutch kit. With the new trans and clutch kit installed, the car ran for about a week until it started this whining noise when accelerating. Basically it feels like the...

    I have a V7 Wagon that is slow under full boost. No engine lights, is not clutch slip and has been taken to a specialist subaru mechanic who has cost me $1k to diagnose and has not found the problem.

    Hi this is my first post so I am sorry if its in the wrong place. I have replaced my front door after an accident, and I am trying to remove the old door handle to put in the new door (The new door doesn't have keyless entry). I unscrewed the 2 t30 screws holding the handle in place. The lock...

    2004 wrx here, so when I’m in 4th gear or like 3rd and I start to open the throttle pretty quickly at a steady pace I would say like 70% the car simply will just shutter and slowing climb trying to go past 3500 rpm’s And during this the air to fuel ratio is at 8:1. Almost like it’s just reached...

  17. 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...

  20. 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...
