  1. Engine Modifications
    I have a 06 wrx, EJ255, my timing belt snapped whilst driving and I now now either a rebuild or a replacement however it is hard to find a wrx of my exact year with a decent engine, would an ej255 from other years be suitable for straight swap?, no wire adapters or aftermarket ECUs I just want a...
  2. Exterior & Appearance
    Need help identifying a part related to the side skirts on our 2008 WRX wagon. I seem to be missing a part, near the rear fender, on the right side. Any ideas? Don't think it's in here: https://www.subarugenuineoemparts.com/v-2008-subaru-impreza--wrx--2-5l-h4-gas/body--exterior-trim-pillars...
  3. Personal For Sale & Wanted
    New H&R Street Performance Coil Overs 29040-2 for 08-14 WRX Monotube shocks. Bilstein internals as they're built in the same factory in Germany. Never installed. Assembled one rear strut and when comparing to old setup realized it'd be too low for my needs as it's my daily and winter is coming...

  4. Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    I just picked up an 02 wrx with a spun bearing, the engine is already out and I have a donor 2.5 to build. Anyways I was looking at the turboxs utec for engine management, but I see zero support in 2022 for this thing. I'd like to try it but If I can't find the files to install it's pretty much...

  7. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hello everyone, I've searched all over the forums including my 2.5rs and nasoic but can't seems to find any answers. I recently swapped a jdm forester xt 2.0 engine into my 98 impreza and used the complete 02 bug eye harness, ecu, and gas tank, etc. I redid the heasgaskets and used MLS and also...
  8. Everyday Impreza Talk
    So I've got an 05 N/A impreza wagon and I want to drop an 02 wrx into it. I was wondering if I could leave my 05 rear wiring harness in the car and just get an 02 wrx front harness and ECU or would I need the whole front and rear wrx harness? New to wiring and all that so probably a silly...

  12. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hey there! I have a 2008 WRX that's been modified (straight pipe, radiator, FMIC, AOS) and we're about to get a tune on the car. After driving around for about 2-3 minutes, when I stop the car, white smoke will come out of the exhaust and it smells like burning oil. It will last for about 5-10...
  13. Engine Modifications
    Hello all!, I’m very new to subie, I have a 2016 wrx with an MAF engine system. I’ve read that BOV’s mess with your computers communication if you’re running a MAF (mass airflow sensor) system. Is a diverter valve the same? I’ve read not having an escape for pressure isn’t good for the wrx...
  14. Everyday Impreza Talk
    A year ago I bought my '21 wrx. I love the car though I have a few complaints. When I'm out driving, I can't help but feel a tinge of jealousy when I see an STi rolling around. The sound and the increased power are two things that appeal to me a lot. I daily my wrx and I would do the same...
  15. Everyday Impreza Talk
    So by now we are all aware of the cancellation of a next generation ICE STi. I was chatting with a rep at my dealer recently and they said that some Subaru reps visited from Japan a few weeks back and while they were here, they said that there also will not be an electric model. Does anyone...
  16. Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    I have a 2013 WRX with 75K miles.. I randomly bought a brand new Cobb V3 Accessport on OfferUp because good deal and I was reading online that it was a decent upgrade from stock tune. After further reading, I came across people saying it could possibly harm your engine? Only mod I have is SPT...

    So yeah... I bought a 2018 WRX 50th Anniversary Edition. 600 made. I didn't buy it new.. it had 20k miles... it now has 30k miles. I am a little disappointed. 600 hundred made... if it were the STI would be 300 made... super rare car, yet they skimped out. I do love the car. I just think more...
  18. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hello all! I have a 2004 wrx v limited with the ej205. I’ve been in a bit of a stump, recently I have been noticing smoke coming out of the exhaust, sometimes at operating temp or even just under operating temp, not when idling but while accelerating, like if I’m backing out of a parking stall...

  20. 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...
