I might have missed it earlier in the thread... but will the 09 STi turbo (VF48 or VF52??) fit a 2005 WRX?

Also, are injectors and TMIC transferable?

Yes, the turbo and injectors will fit. The TMIC will fit with maybe some modification to the brackets.

Excellent. Thank you.

I found someone modding their 09 STi with a gt35r kit.

He's potentially selling me his turbo, TMIC & injectors for C$650 (US$530). Car has 9,000km's on it.

In the case of the TMIC, if it doesn't fit... I could get away with the stock 05 WRX TMIC - if anything... it may reduce some lag!?

Guess all I need in addition to all of this is the VF48 "pill" + Walbro 225lph fuel-pump.

Planning on running a download COBB (VF39+STi injectors) map from their site. Risky or a safe bet???

No offense man, I'm a noob too but I can tell you that you should do a lot more research before you ask such a general question.

Or, you could spring for a Perrin TMIC, which appears to be pretty stout. I've seen it on sale in the $600's, which isn't cheap, but I think from what I've read that it will support into the 300's of WHP.

Yea, I had this problem for the longest time and it was driving me nuts. But it doesnt generally mean you have a bad sensor. My problem was that somehow my tire pressure sensors got "un-registered" somehow. Just take it to the dealer and they'll either re-register them for u or give you new sensors.

Hello,

I just purchase an 09 WRX 5 door yesterday. I was looking over the engine bay to get a feel where stuff is and I have a question. What is the part/item on the top front corner of the engine (to the right of the a/c compressor). It is black plastic and slightly cylindrical.

Also, all 4 of my tires were inflated to over 40psi cold....has anyone seen this? I know it's fine to be a couple psi over the rated pressure, but this is more than 10 psi over standard? Should I deflate to around 33-35? or is 43ish ok?

Thanks

Not my dealer... I've had the same problem on and off for the first year of owning my '08- and they just "reset" them every time. The problem was- half of the time, I'd be driving home from the dealer and the darn light would come back on!

I only ever notice it coming on when I'm driving on a highway at 65 and above. If I stop, it generally goes out. It's slightly unnerving, though, as it makes me a little paranoid.

Anyone know if there are service manuals for the 09 WRX available for download anywhere?

Also, if you get the subscription on the Subaru website to get the pdfs, do they 'lock up' after the 72 hours? or are they permanent?

Has anyone with an 08/09 notice that the dead pedal is kind of.....squishy? By that I mean, it doesn't feel like there is solid metal behind it?

Hey guys,

my 4th and 5th syncros are gone @ 17k... the 5th have been pretty iffy for a while... i didn't think much of it. 4th just went after i went full stage 2, so i was pretty worried about how SoA was going to treat me. Dropped it off this morning and i got the big frowns from the service dept.

any other day, SoA would tell me to **** myself... but luckily i know the owner of the dealership, and he said this would be a "one time, good faith" coverage

so for anyone lying to yourself saying stage 2 won't piss the dealer off... that's wrong

and there is no difference between catless and hi-flow cats either lol

Late post, I know.

I was actually gonna ask the dealer about that. My dead pedal feels like the plastic hollow seeming piece behind it is bent. I actually felt a buckle in the structure with my hand on the right side of the pedal.

Let us know what they say or if there is a fix...if I was motivated, I'd pull the carpet back and rig up something metal to reinforce it.

Usually dead pedals are solid or almost solid high density rubber. In most cars you can apply 100% of your weight as you adjust yourself or reach in the back seat for your cd album etc....on this car I worry my foot will break through into the wheel well if I do that .

actually the legacy gt and wrx cat back are different. the gt's mufflers kick upwards to hug the body, and the 08 and up wrx is flat.
