  1. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    So i just got myself a 2018 wrx (completly stock). For the first 2 weeks or so of ownership everything was fine but i recently started earing a weird kinda blowing air noise at idle and low rpm (from idle to about 1500rpm or so). P.S It sounds worst irl than in the video. Video : weird noise I...
  2. Maintenance, service, and repair
    I have a 2011 wrx and for maybe a month at least, I've noticed a whining/whirring while I'm driving. It sounds weird but it sounds like a cheap dollar store supercharger whine and it gets higher pitched/louder when accelerating and the opposite while decelerating. It also seems to be loudest at...

    I'm trying to figure out how to make my turbo louder because I'm seeing videos of wrx's just idling and I can hear the turbo spooling from the exhaust. I've done pretty much everything that I can do to get that signature turbo noise. I have a bigger turbo, turbosmart compgate 40 external...

    Now that I have your attention... šŸ¤£ Ever since I bought my wrx its made a loud high pitch sound exactly 20 seconds after cold starts.. it sorta sounds like the worlds smallest turbo to me. I can't find the sound by ear but it almost sounds electrical because it's the same every time. Any idea...

    Hi all Great community here, I've been lurking for the last couple of days as I'm considering a 2012 WRX or WRX STi purchase. I test drove a WRX 5 door earlier this week, and thought that the exhaust noise in the cabin was loud, possibly would drive my wife mad especially at low revs. Today we...
  6. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    So, I've been getting a weird noise lately coming from engine bay. I can only describe it as a ticking noise. I thought it was my imagination at first, but now I am pretty sure the car was a lot quieter when I first got it. Additionally, there has been a mild burning smell after shutting...

    I have a 2004 WRX the mods are UEL header, catless up and down pipe, cobb turbo back exhaust, cobb stage two tune, aem intake, aftermarket intercooler y pipe, exedy stage 1 clutch, and a turbosmart B.O.V. I just recently put in the clutch. I got it all done and took it for a drive, when the...
  8. Everyday Impreza Talk
    I have a 2004 WRX wagon with 81,000 miles. I was getting a rattling noise, almost like radio static or a strong wind noise that would come and go, usually most prevelent at idle. Mechanic found that my timing belt tensionor was about to go. The belt was slowly being worn away. I dodged a...
  9. Engine Modifications
    Was on some other forums, as I am looking for a CBE for my 09 WRX. A couple of people talking getting tickets for aftermarket exhausts including the SPT. Also more than one claim of SPT exhausts leading to problems at dealerships (saying you have a modded car), even though the person says they...
  10. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey Guys, I have an 03 WRX Sedan with a little over 100K on it. Havn't really had any issues with it, but, recently i started hearing a loud noise when accelerating. If I'm coasting or decelerating it's fine. I can even go easy on the throttle and avoid it all together (But who wants to do...
  11. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey guys I was wondering if anyone experienced something like this before and if anyone knows what the problem is. My 05 STi has started to make this rumble/vibration sound and you can feel it too! This only happens at VERY LOW speed, maybe 1-4 mph in 1st, 2nd, or Neutral. It happens 75% of...
