I liked the 135. Lot of fun with the tc off, if you're not busy sliding your car into something stationary.

They finally came out last week but now it's getting fixed. Hopefully next weekend I'll get it back.

I'd love for her to get a 135 and I've got 1 to look at but I think it's out of her price range that she wants to spend.

I'm taking the Hyundai to the dragstrip tomorrow. Anyone else want to join?

Also I'm planning a mountain run on April 6th early in the morning. Hopefully my car will be done this weekend. I'll post up the details to see who's interested

I really am thankful for all your rental car performance research. If you still have time do you think you could step up to some more unique offerings? They don't have to be performance cars, maybe different commercial vehicles? Like Uhaul vs. Home Depot. That sort of thing.

I smelled my clutch on my way to work this morning, so the my Legacy miles will be limited until I can do some comprehensive drivetrain work in early summer(new front axles, fix leaky rear diff, clutch & flywheel, center diff bearings). I don't think the wife will let me take her FX either.

I don't think they would let the uhaul or home depot vehicles go because of the obvious stickers that prove it's not mine but if one day I get access then I'll try my hardest to make a pass. Fix that stuff this weekend and come on the run next weekend

Hey does anyone in the Greenville/ upstate area know of a good shop to take the subaru to for brakes? I broke off the bolt that holds the caliper on and am kind of out of things that I can do with simple hand tools and jack stands.

I usually show up around 6:30ish. It's $7 cash only per person (I'm not sure about kids) whether you drive or not. Bring your helmet!! the only info on that is what I've seen on UECC

Sounds fun but I'll be mountain running. I've got a big run planned on some awesome roads

Is the caliper off of the car?

Any shop could really do brakes, a couple really reputable ones I know of are Japanese Auto off Woodruff road, JR racing downtown.

If its just a broken bolt in the caliper I would lean more towards a machine shop, haven't worked with any first hand to know of one to recommend.

I've had my fair share of breaking bolts off in blocks and heads, if its not overly complicated I may be able to help you out.

Welcome to the area next month! I'm fairly new to NASIOC but have been in Greenville for a few years. Some of what's going on usually:

-Cars and Coffee on the fourth Saturday of each month.
-It seems the local 1/8 mile just opened, and people from here usually go. It's the place to go for testing rental cars, although not really good for testing Uhaul or Home Depot trucks I'm told.
-Historic Races April 25-27 at Road Atlanta. I'll be going Saturday the 26, anyone is invited.
-I'll be doing some drivetrain work early summer and will probably make a weekend out of it for anyone interested.

1) cars and coffee is great
2) I ran a 10.51 @68 in the Hyundai Elantra
3) it sounds cool. I'll see if I'm free
4) I'm in

I apologize it has been a while since i have posted. Work took hold and suddenly its been two months since i did anything to the subby but put the battery on tender! I will be burning up a good bit of vacation during April (4 day weekends primarily as my dad is visiting from oz). I ordered/received my cobb AP this week and thus im looking forward to flashing stage 1 and doing some datalogging. I am concerned as my car is relatively stock. It came to me with a turbosmart BPV and a set of Enkeis being the only known deviations from stock. I have since done the "H6 upgrade" and replaced the air filter element with a K&N drop in. The car in question here is a 2002 wrx that has 192k miles. I havnt pulled the TMIC to check but i am relatively sure the uppipe is still catted and i would like to do something about this before driving excessively/spiritedly with a stage 1 flash. I have been ordering the majority of my parts (OEM and aftermarket ) from flatironstuning out of colorado. I didnt know if there was anyone locally (asheville is teeming with subbys there must be a shop there!) that you guys typically ordered parts from? Id like to replace my uppipe and do a TBE at the same time. One of those while youre in there might as well sorts of deals. Having close to 200k miles would anybody advise swapping out the TD04 with a lower mileage/new replacement? I have considered going to a 16G but i dont plan on tracking the car and would rather put the $ into maintenance as im sure with that many miles something is bound to go pfffftbang soon. I already have an OEM timing belt, pulleys/tensioners, H20 pump, etc on hand as im sure ill reach the 200k mile service marker this year at some point. I am sorry for being a newbosaurus rex but i have been trolling enough to know not to barge in asking how i can get 800WHP and 80psi out of my CAI, BOV, and Maxwell House brand muffler (with 5 chrome tips). Id like to keep my goals realistic (HP is a number and I am more prone to seeking out overrall driving experience vs making sacrifices to the god of speed) and geared more towards longevity. I have read unabombers manifesto/faq's. Again thanks for your input and id like to meet up if there will be a cars and coffee- 4th saturday in April?

Since you've already ordered the AP instead of going open source, I'd do the Stage 1 and then when you get the exhaust parts replaced/ upgraded, do the Stage 2 on the AP and enjoy the car. With the ej20, that really is the best for daily driving fun. A 16G or bigger is good too, but you do lose some low end drivability.

Pull the TMIC when you get a chance if you're using oil. If it's excessive consumption, it could be through the turbo seals, but if not, I wouldn't bother replacing it. I would add changing the PCV on your list of maintenance.

As far as local places for ordering parts, there's not really. It's online and then self install, or go to Asheville or Charlotte if you don't do work yourself.

Also, a post is easier to read with paragrpahs

Hahaha thank you for the quick reply.
Sorry for my lack of grammar. I tend to ramble... and mumble while doing so.
I honestly havnt put enough miles on the car to (maybe 300 since i bought it) be able to tell if the engine or turbo are using oil or coolant. I try to be more kin to taking preventative as opposed to reactive measures.
I have added the PCV to my list thanks for that.

I went with cobbAP as it seemed well tested/reviewed by a good number of users on this forum. I also liked the access to OTS maps. Albeit not as good as a protune, much better than notune. Townville doesnt exactly have a plethora of tuning shops. At least not that i am aware of. Given that this is my first turbocharged car i also liked the accesstuner software. I come from a background of vintage and antique european motorcycles thus i am by no means ready to start tweaking on my own without further investigation and hopefully an opportunity to shadow a more knowledgeable individual but its nice to know its there when i'm ready.
I apologize for my ramblings but surely appreciate the reply. I look forward to meeting the locals.

I've had my 2002 since 2003 with 157,000 on it now, I've built the engine, transmission, and replaced the rear diff 3 times So I've experienced almost everything an older WRX can go through.

The timing belt/ water pump are important to change. The up pipe is as well as it can kill the turbo. Just know you need to resister to trick the EGT sensor. You can search and easily find this. The turbo itself can't hurt the engine by oil consumption, though it is rather annoying.

Good luck and welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the reply 340Duster.

I have come across the resistor trick many times. I was under the impression the AP flash would take care of the trouble code for the EGT sensor. Ill make a note to pick up some 2.2k ohm resistors just in case.

Ive never had any grinding or shifting issues but the gear oil certainly has a metallic contaminent (very fine).

Did you go with stock gearsets when you built the trans or upgrade to RA?

The V2 AP might be able to, I know the V1 couldn't delete codes out.

No, I went the expensive route and put MRT straight cut gears 1-4 in it at about 50k miles on the car.

If you get rid of your current td04 let me know. I may be interested in it for the right price depending on condition

My TD04 doesnt have any shaft play with it's 200+k miles. It seems that they can last. The K03 on my old jetta made it to 300k miles before wearing out, overboosted most of the time to as much boost as it could make.

I've finally got my engine project moving along decently well. I got back from Myrtle beach a little early last night and torqued down the heads. I really want to get the cams test fitted so I can adjust the valves and order and shims. I might get some time to do that on tuesday, maybe wednesday. It would be great if I was finished with that for a sunday afternoon final assembly attempt.
