Hey all. I purchased my buddies 2004 Subaru WRX about 2 months ago. He loved the car, but is starting a family so he decided that putting the money towards a house and his family was the better thing to do.
I've always loved the Subaru Impreza family and I finally own one!
My buddy has already installed a true blue K&N cold air with screen on filter. He also has an UP that he was going to put on but never got around to it. So I'll be purchasing that and putting that on, hopefully this spring. I'm thinking next will be DP. Any other thoughts / ideas? :)

Hello and welcome:)
Make sure you get some engine management for your UP and DP install, COBB accessport is great

well, sad story ....
I was doing some research on the cobb accessport, but not enough. because last week i was checking ebay and ran accross a version 1 ap and the seller said it was for an 04 wrx or 04-06 sti (he totaled his 06 sti and unmarried the device). the auction was close to being over so i went ahead and put a bid in ... and low and behold i won the auction, and then an hour later i was researching it a bit more and found out it probably would not work with my 04 WRX since he had an 06 sti. I called him and he said, it has right on the manual 04 WRX so it should work. The package was delivered yesterday, opened the box...the part number (on the box and on the back of the device) includes 06-AE-STI!!! You would think that he noticed this when he bought the device....oh well, it's my own fault so I have to deal with it. :rolleyes:

I didn't know the V1 came for those years either.... I wonder if it would work, have you tried it at all?

I'm not going to take that chance. From what I've read it looks like it's very ECU specific and I don't want to take the chance of locking up my ECU. Is there a specific thread that I can post this for sale? I'll get some pics of it and the serial # .

Thanks all for the welcome and the info. Glad to be here and a WRX owner.

There is a Personal For Sale and a regional NCS: Local For Sale Only ! . The accessport is a popular used item - you should not have much trouble finding a buyer.
