Subaru Stars WTB: parts for an 06 wrx intake, exhaust, swaybar, short shifter

Well I thought I was done Modding but, I lied. Lol. I'm in the market for a tamed and drone free exhaust that will mate to a Perrin catless downpipe. Also, I want an spt intake or other then the big maf perrin intake ( short ram ). I'm looking for a 22-24 mm swaybar front and rear along, with a kartboy ss With brushings. Also, an up pipe that will suffice for my low end Rpm lag.

Please pm me or text me at 848-391-2155

Perrin big maf intake for sale $75

Not to burst your bubble about the up-pipe, but did you read into this?

Even with the internal wastegate fully open not enough air can exit to stop spinning the turbo, the result is boost creep or boost spike. With the 06-07 WRX, unlike the STi, you cannot fix the problem by just porting the stock turbo wastegate, since the problem has to do with the actual size of the turbo. We suggest porting the stock turbo wastegate AND getting an engine management system to help fix the issue like a UTEC or AccessPORT. With the added costs this will entail, 06-07 WRX owners may want to consider waiting to get an aftermarket downpipe or turboback after they have upgraded there turbochargers or they may want to consider getting a cat-back exhaust only.

Are you planning to upgrade the turbo later on down the line?

^^^ Don't start scaring people over nothing. I think it's safe to assume that 8-9 out of 10 people on this site with '06/'07 WRX's are running full exhausts, fully catless, and 98% of them don't have boost spike issues. And even if you do hit boost spike... whoopdy doo... no big deal. Just reflash or disconnect the battery and the cel is gone.

I've been stange 2 (full catless exhaust, tune) for 75k miles on my '06 and I've only hit boost spike twice and that was because I was running open downpipe and floored it in 4th gear. I went back to a standard 3" downpipe and haven't had it since.

I personally know of 6 of my friends with '06's and '07's that has stock turbos with full exhausts and not one of them has ever complained of boost spike. It's not a serious issue that people should be scared out of buying exhaust. More important than boost spike is getting engine management. You want to have some sort of enegine management (COBB AccessPort, Ecutek, professional tune, etc) when you install an exhaust.

I am not scaring anyone, just posting useful information I have run across. What I posted above and your last statement both coincide. Get engine management if you install an exhaust. Maybe some people are unaware of this? I know I was when I was shopping around for an up-pipe and cat-back.

An uppipe isn't entirely necessary on the '06-'07's because they're catless. Previous models were catted. They only have 2 cats in the downpipe as opposed to the additional 1 cat in the uppipe.

Engine management will not fix boost spike. It's a mechanical issue.

Your probably right on the up pipe. I'm not gettig a larger turbomaybe a vf series tops. I'm mainly looking for everything else. I do recall boost spike issues on my whte 06 so I guess I'll stay clear of th up pipe. So let's get back on topic. I'm getting a pro tune by akuma right after anyway so all the parts will be in sync or try to be.
