What you need to do is close your browser, turn off your computer, and call your local tuner.

Anyone who tells you otherwise has no idea what they are talking about.

Just about every section on this forum has "sticky's" at the top of the list of threads. Read them. Ex: "Factory 2.5L Turbo Powertrain" pertains to your vehicle so read that section (don't post....READ). Read the newbie section sticky's too. Learn the "search" function.

Is there a way to make people not be able to post stuff for lets say a week, make them only able to read the stickies and give them guidance that they wont be able to post until they do? Sorry this stuff is starting to get old. Im usually the one who sympathizes but i cant anymore.

Shortening the gears is an involved and expensive proposition in a Subaru. With something like a Mustang, you buy a new gearset and have it installed. Usually something under $1000. In a Subaru, you get to do that in the rear diff and in the transaxle.

You heard wrong. And before you did that I'd recommend you sell it and buy a proper RWD car as doing so is just dumb. You don't convert a Rolls Royce into a pickup truck either. Right car....right job.

He's serving in the Air Force, a little respect guys, but op, you can't start up a thread like that, we don't even know what car you drive. If you want an informative answer you need to have an informative question

If he is in the Air Force, and writes in the manner we have seen here... I have no respect for him. The Air Force is supposed to be some of our brightest... Hell, I bet my ASVAB score blows his away...


Probably just a cook.

So, OP. My GT is my lowest line score, at 130 What's yours?
