    Hi everyone, first time Subaru owner here. I just picked up a 2019 WRX limited over the weekend and so far I love it!

    Hi all, making my first ever post to this forum as I recently bought a 2014 WRX!!

    I have a 2005 wrx, bought it used a few months ago and been working my way through it to figure it out. I've realized that the turbo seals need replacing but not sure how to identify this turbo. The previous owner said its a 20g turbo and was tuned for a 20g. There are no markings on it, has...

    I wanted to install a grimmspeed ebcs 3port and intake on my car so I start taking things apart.

    The brakes on my WRX are due for a full refresh and I want to do some upgrades while I’m pulling everything apart. I don’t need crazy levels of stopping power so I was looking at doing a budget brembo conversion from RockAuto. It’s about $1400CAD to do the front and rear with quality pads and...
  9. Interior Mods
    Hi All, I don't know much of anything about engine swaps and interior car mods, but would it be reasonable at some point in the future to have a garage swap a 2022+ WRX 2.4L engine into my 2021 WRX? I am just curious if this would open up the car to higher potential horsepower due to the...
