You're taking a brand new car that's still under warranty, sinking thousands of dollars into it, voiding your warranty, and monkeying around with stock parts just to gain 60hp? I'm sure it would cost less to trade the car in on a WRX while saving you time and headaches.

^^I 100% agree. Trade it in if you want 60hp.

That's just ridiculous on a brand new car. The best swaps are into good cars you get really good deals on. For example, I paid $400 for my car

only official subaru or SPT parts installed by subaru or a technician would qualify for not voiding your warranty (at least on that part of the car if not everything else because manufacturers love to void entire warranties because of 1 little thing).
