  1. Maintenance, service, and repair
    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. The car has 180xxx kms on it, has been manual swapped in the past and is running a V6 ecu on a...

    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...
  3. Maintenance, service, and repair
    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...

    Hello everyone. New member here, I'm posting this in the everyday Impreza talk thread as i was not sure which thread is appropriate for my post. I have recently gotten into the market for a WRX. I have loved them growing up and have always wanted one and I feel like the time to make it happen...
  5. Everyday Impreza Talk
    So the other night i gunned it full boost through every gear. Rpms matched how fast the car should be going in every gear. But in 4th and 5th gear near WOT i started smelling a burning at about 135(didnt smell like oil,clutch,any fluids) only way i could describe it was if you lit a match then...

  7. 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...
  8. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    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...
  9. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    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...
  10. 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...

    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...
  12. 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...

  15. 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...

    Hello! I need help picking out a wheel color for my metallic grey wrx. I know bronze is a great choice but still looking for any other option that might be better. Any help would be much appreciated :)

    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...
  18. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    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...
