Just got into my first WRX. Also just moved to the Boise, ID area. Looking for people to talk Subaru with and bike or snowboard. So excited to finally be in my dream car, I worked hard for this. Lets go! club WRX.
Thanks for the input man. Like the post says, I'm brand spanking new to performance vehicles.It isn't that type of party.
Your list is broken as every option there requires a tune, further supporting mods, and an accessport assuming a newer car. With the exception of the waste that would be cooling modifications.
Turbo will likely require the intake, absolutely required a tune, fueling upgrades, exhaust modifications, and possibly an intercooler depending on what you go with. That also gets you into the area of needing a performance block in some cases.
Intake requires the vehicle to be tuned so you'll have no choice but to buy an ap for the newer cars.
Cooling is a waste unless you've got temp issues related to performance. The stock system is far more capable than necessary.
I'd avoid it all until you aquaint yourself with the Subaru platform.
I’ve both heard about and read about more STOCK Subaru’s needing engine replacements than any other brand I’ve dealt with. Specifically when dealing with the WRX/STI. I’m not naive and I’m sure it comes down to the overall treatment of the vehicle, but it seems like you can get away with more neglect on other platforms.I'm not really sure that's strictly true...
There wasn't a Don't Do Anything option. While I did buy and use a Cobb AP on my 2015, I don't recommend any modifications / tuning. I say this with full conviction: If you want a faster car, buy a faster car. -- I know, broken record.
Im honestly content man.. this car is a beautiful thing and I'm not ready to tear it open yet at all.Just be prepared to shell out the cash for a new engine once you start with the power adders. I’m not saying it’s a guarantee but it’s more likely to happen with a Subaru than other brands.
