It's not sti, but fuck is it fun. Haven't broke in the motor yet, only got 300 on it right now. Never owned an awd or subaru. I'm just pissed there isn't snow on the ground to atleast have some fun. Currently deciding on mods. Don't want to void warranty just yet. Only a week old.

No stereo. Sadly it looks like the j pipe holds the motor back. Save money and wait a while then it's cobb tuning level 2. Would like to have 400 horse to the wheels atleast by next summer.

I would go with a tune for sure. It should improve things instantly.

Then a new stereo with a usb slot so you can listen to whatever you want.

Be careful with mods. Most of them get you very little bang for your buck. You are way better off with a nitrous kit than a bunch of bolt ons that do nothing.

I was going to modify my mustang but I decided to just save up for a Shelby instead of using bolt ons that won't do much.

The tune however was well worth the money. Tighter and quicker shifting plus just more punch and less delay on the throttle.

First thing I noticed was turbo lag. Cobb tuning has an economic flash that should remedy the problem but voids the warranty. The accessport that flashes the ecu comes with the level 2 tuning. About $2k for almost 340 hp and 370 torque. Not bad. Looks like the fuel line and injectors with get me to 400 hp.

Can't you just restore the factory tune to take it in?

It can't. Since the ecu is flashed, it changes everything. You can use the factory settings from the accessport, but I think that must stay in the car connected, which would void the warranty.
Most tuners will save your factory flash. That doesn't sound right but I could be wrong.

This was after it was tinted. Really needs a bath still. Still got mudflaps and a shifter bearing to put on, as well as some interior things.

Would like to but I will never head that way. I would have liked to seen the isle of man run by the wrx a couple of months ago. Shit was quick
