    This is driving me nuts. I usually shift at 3k driving around the city with about 20% throttle and never fully get out of vacuum. Is this the case with everyone? Looking at my logs the closest I get is -0.9. Seems like I should be at least seeing 0 no?

    I just wanted to know that if aftermarket exhausts for the WRX MY06/MY07 is compatible for the same generation Impreza and if they fit or if there's any modifications only just for a cat back system. I'm new to the scene and I just want to get the right exhaust so I don't waste my money

    I drive a 2009 WRX, Cobb AP and intake only mods so far. I need to replace the transmission, I'm going new from Subaru, but I was thinking if I need to replace my clutch anyway and turn the flywheel why not upgrade...but I don't know what to get. The only other mods in the future are turbo back...

I've also seen a few dyno sheets, and I don't see why not, I don't really mind losing the little bit of low end torque or having a little more lag tbh. Keep in...
