For some people, they are honestly better off learning the hard way because they do not believe the more expensive stuff is better. However, +1.

I've never needed the ebrake to drift, all about shifting the weight, slow in power out. The rear easily kicks out and in my opinion often over powers the front. At least feels like it had some rear bias in low traction conditions. Subaru's aren't for spectating there for driving

IMO, too much money for not that great of power. I did look very heavily into these kits/ a DIY one. In the end, just decided to do suspension/ exterior and have fun with the car until I can afford one with a stock turbo.

So my 08 2.5I would not start tonight at work. It has full tank of gas and tried jumping it with another truck. The car was getting enough battery juice. Checked for spark, car has spark. Is it possible that a fuel line could freeze, possiblye fuel pump issue?

Any of you guys know a thread or other things to check?

This sucks.

PM him. Search the Members List at the top of the page.
It'll be under 'S'

Or, do a search for the Photbotti tuning thread.

That does suck....

What was the temp?

Were your dash lights able to turn on?

Was the car trying to turn over?


My guess is that it may have been very cold to where the cold crank amps weren't enough with the given information.

What was the temp? Car sat from 3pm-10pm, 10F. Car currently has a full tank of Shell 93.

Were your dash lights able to turn on? Yes, dome lights, headlights, all bright.

Was the car trying to turn over? Yes, was cranking. Listened by the back seat to hear for the pump priming, didn't hear anything. Checked Fuel Pump fuse, which was good. It looks like the fuel pump went.

My guess is that it may have been very cold to where the cold crank amps weren't enough with the given information.
Just got the car towed back home. Currently in the garage with a charger on the battery to bring it back to a full charge. Any trick tips on getting the back seat out to get to the fuel pump, I haven't been able to find any DIY's on this process for 08+ vehicles. Gotta say, for the amount of people on NASIOC... NASIOC lacks DIY's, maintenance with pictures compared to Audizine.

It's not under the seat empty the trunk, put the rear seat backs down, and it's under these metal covers in the trunk directly behind the seats.

Excellent. I did remove the rear trunk liner and see those. Wish the manual book that came with the car had just alittle more in depth information.

Do any of you guy's have a master manual book for the 08-10 Impreza? At this point, it's become a huge priority to buy one.

Thank you sir. Plan in installing some cams soon (gotta do brakes first) which brings me to my next point. I want to get some affordable rotors. I was looking for slotted and I heard hawk pads are nice.

Slotted will eat away at your brakes faster. Unless you need the heat dissipation or gas dissipation. Its not really cost efficient or practical for DD

Your brakes are disks all around? Try better brake pads, or brake coolers, titanium heatshields, maybe even the brake vents in your foglight housing

Pads alone should get you pretty far. Otherwise you're a ~$20 bracket away from fitting WRX rotors and the selection on those is pretty good.
