haven't done it but it helps with spool up a little bit and rock solid boost control..... not bad for an extra 80 dollar piece of mind running 24 pounds of boost.....

Yes, the hybrid setup allows the quick response and rock solid boost control of a manual boost controller, while still allowing for the fine tuning and partial throttle boost control that an electronic boost controller will give you. You can really get most of the same benefits from a good 3 port boost controller (like the GrimmSpeed one), but if you've got the extra money, the manual can be nice to have in addition. Just make sure your tuner is familiar with hybrid setups.

Hey man, first of all I love your car, it looks perfect. I am coming from Audi land and picking up my 11 limited wrx hatch on Saturday. Just had a few questions for ya. First of all, I plan on running steelies in the winter like you, did you install TPMS sensors in yours, and if not does that affect not being able to turn off the traction control or do you just have the light to deal with?

Also, Did you do anything about your camber or how bad have your tires been wearing? I plan to lower mine as much as I can on H&R coilovers with the stock wheels. Thanks in advance, by the way I am not too far from ya, down in Sioux City, Iowa. It is nice to see someone actually from the midwest........Thanks bro

My winter wheels to do not have TPMS. The only side effect is the light on the dash. Traction control still works like normal. I got an alignment after putting on my coilovers. Rears (non adjustable) ended up somewhere around -2.5, if I remember correctly. Tire wear hasn't been too bad so far.

Yep. Intercooler piping coupler. The 20G has an STi style outlet so it uses a different intercooler pipe and coupler.

Man this is nice, if I had the money, this is exactly what I would do. But since I don't, guess my dented up bugeye will have to do. Props for a sweet Subaru.

Car looks great man! I just added the rear mid hatch spoiler, TS pitch mount and on Friday the hood scoop grill from grille craft and the Carbon fiber plate delete cover.

I also ordered the lower grill craft cover to protect the FMS FMIC black coating. Again looks great, my white is a bitch to color match, had the bumper redone and it is a completely diffierent color GRRRRR, three times!
