OMGHi2U 2008+ owners...please read....

Congrats on your new car and welcome to the forums!

Now before you start posting, please keep the following in mind:

1. Your car is brand new. Yes, it's just a new year, but for all intents and purposes, it might as well be a Jeep Cherokee as pretty much 100% of the car is new.
2. Will XXX fit my car? Probably not. The turbo is different, the intercooler is different, the exhaust is different, etc.
3. When will manufacturers start making XXX parts? We don't know, please bug the manufacturers.
4. I found XXX parts that will fit, can I bolt them up? Your best bet is to wait for engine management before you start bolting up things. Each car has something called open/closed loop fueling issues mandated by the EPA that can negatively affect vehicle modifications. The wise/safe course of action is to wait for engine management then modify. Yes, you can probably safely get away with simple mods, but the smart thing to do is engine management first, then parts.
5. But I found out that XXXX from an older Subaru will fit on my 2008. Well post that crap here and we'll update this for all to see.

If anyone sees anything to add, please post. The genesis behind this post is to prevent 9000 posts of will XXX fit my 2008. This is an annual annoyance and I'm hoping this may stem some of that.

Old parts that WONT fit:

Exhausts
TMICs
FMICs
Rear sway bars
Intakes for Legacy GT

Old parts that WILL fit:

Downpipes for Legacy GT
BPV/BOV for Legacy GT
Lightweight crank pulley
short throw shifters/bushings
front sway bar
TMIC for Legacy GT
FMIC for Legacy GT (may have to mod to fit)
Turbos for Legacy GT
Clutch and flywheel

THIS LINK contains a huge list of parts that will fit 08/09 cars

STI Exhausts that will fit

I'd like to add that a good starting place to look for parts will most likely end up being the Legacy GT boards

FYI, someone needs to try test fitting this, but I do believe that the 08 WRX Sedan exhaust system is ALMOST same as the Legacy GT exhaust system (including the mufflers!).

It looks like the mufflers mount exactly the same, however the Catback flange looks like it is rotated at a different angle... However, a FULL exhaust may bolt on without any problem, as would a dual muffler kit like the Prodrive mufflers (just axle backs and not the catback)

The 2.5i's (non-turbos) look EXACTLY the same though...

BTW, i'm going by diagrams here not the actual cars, so it will need to be verified first.

and not that it belongs in the engine/power forum, but version 7 rims are a fine match, except that booger of a light that tells me the tire pressure is low is getting really annoying...

from what I'm told there is a sensor in the wheel, and you can get the sensor from subaru, or tire rack.

I'm gonna see if subaru can just turn off the light from the ECU, otherwise it'll have to wait till I run through these tires.

I'll post the results regardless!

I've been trying to get my hands on an LGT factory service manual, so I can get something figured out. I tried buying one on ebay, but they kept refunding me because they were bootleg.

The wheel needs to be designed to recieve them, I think. Or, when you upgrade you could just take the sensors off your old wheels and bolt them to your new ones and see if they hold pressure. If so you're in luck.

will post my findings.
initial findings are that from the bottom hangar (closest to ground) to the flange that bolts to the y pipe on the legacy muffler are 17" even, on the sedan it is 16".

didn't do any measurements on the top hangar for the legacy, but I'm guessing that is off by an inch as well, maybe more.

I'll probably not measure the rest of it though...

Sounds about right.

If you're going catless downpipe, go with Ultimate Racing. on their site for 325.

Has anyone tried to install an 08' hatchback exhaust on the sedan? I have not heard anyone try it and succeed or fail. If it does not quite fit, what would it take to make it fit. The only issue I see is probably from the flange behind the differential and back. I am tired of waiting and would like to know what modification is needed to make it work. I also do not really want to put a dual on there because I thing it looks tacky coming off a single turbo. I don't care that the bumper it cutout for two tips. I am looking at possible modifying the Invidia turbo back system.

I hesitate about Cobb because they don't have catless yet.

Score one for the LGT owners! I cannot wait for decently priced turbos that fit the stock location. And rotated manifold setups just got a whole lot better because of the redesign.

Cobb is already showing a catted DP, short-shift kit and front sway-bar for the new WRX.
