    I have a 2018 WRX premium with 49k miles. I was looking into Turbo blankets and header wraps and was wondering if they’re actually effective and give results? And if so is a tune necessary for it? They claim it spoils the turbo quicker, while keeping the engine bay cooler, and heat soak to a...

    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...

    Hey all, I am new to this forum site. I have heard good things about this site as my friends have had lots of help here. My stock 17 WRX 6spd MT just started having a strange issue. Intermittently, it will just start building peak boost at low throttle input in 2nd and 3rd gear. It doesn’t...

    I have a 2015 wrx got it about 6 months ago and since then I had issues I believe the dealer sold me a shitty car because right after they stop answering my phone calls with all these issues I started to get this problem has been getting worse the turbo will feel like a jump back and forth...

  10. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    So about 6 months ago I bought a used 2015 WRX. The car has been having some small issues but nothing crazy. When I first got the car it was pushing 22.1 psi for boost. I reset my battery the other day and noticed that my peak is 12.1 psi. I even tried going through all the gears up to forth and...
  11. Maintenance, service, and repair
    So a little back story, my car started to smoke in October 25 to 26, i ask a friend who knows everything subaru and he said turbo seals. So i bought a new turbo and put it on triple checked every hose and line, good. Prime it good, then start it and its still smoking. But the thing is its hard...
  12. Engine Modifications
    I bought a 2008 wrx about 4 months ago without the sellers having any knowledge of what was done to the car, turns out that it was an absolute steal because of that one reason. But without the owners not knowing what was done to it, I know very little about what is done to it internally. I know...
  13. Engine Modifications
    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...
  14. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    The owner before me obviously did some adjusting of the actuator arm because I found out they had the T hoses backwards, broken bolts on the heat shield, and it's just obvious they were in there at some point trying to raise the boost, or had a "sports car" mechanic that was lost on Subarus. So...

    1st thing is first. Motor is blown. Case halves are trash. Heads are good! Make a great core! Every single Accessory available. 2nd transmission. Is trash. Everything else you see here is good! They have about 17,000 miles on all parts. Some are even less! The rear diff has never had an...
  16. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hello Everyone! I'm new here, and new to the WRX fam, but I'm very interested in upgrading a few bits of my car to take her to the next level. I live in southern Maine (New England - rough winters) and I want my suspension to handle the bumpy roads a bit better, but not feel like I'm suddenly...
  17. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    When in boost I hear a loud groan coming from the engine bay. This could be linked to the code that got thrown on the other day (PO244) for turbo wastegate solenoid. Light turned off and back on, I think it may come on because I am overboosting (new to stick shift) which I read on another forum...
  18. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hi all, I have an 03 WRX that is bone stock and had a code p0420 for bank 1 cat. I changed out the downpipe/stock cat with a Bosal "oem" cat. Looks to be pretty much the same minus all the heat shielding the factory cat has. I also put on new multi layered steel gaskets to ensure the whole...
