Hello Nasioc Community,

I just recently picked up an 04 Wrx with ~60k miles

i know everyones going to say "search" but i figured for my first post i would get a feel from everyones opinion

Are then any layouts / designs of the engine/exhaust layout i can look at? Sorry i just want to get a visual feel of the car. Ive been in the 3000GT/Stealth community and i just wanna be comfortable of my new car.

Also, Is there any recommendations to maintanence?

This is my new daily driver and i only plan to just go BPU. i would say im going to start off with a turboback and a bpv or bov (yes some would say ricey but i would like one). Any recommended brands names?

Again sorry if this is an annoying post and i will gladly use the search button.

Thanks,

Carlo

Stick with a recirc bov if you go that route, otherwise you will be running rich in-between shifts. I suggest a Perrin, or a GFB.

Welcome!

There's tons of good info on here. So read alot before you buy anything.

As for the CBE (brand names) - I personally run a COBB CBE and love it, but there are plenty of other brands and for the most part they all make quality stuff.
As you probably already know - a BOV is not needed, your stock BPV is fine until you reach real high HP levels. If you just want the sound, then go for it, but be warned that you'll get flamed on here for it...

Maintainence - run synthetic oil, I personally run and recommend AMSOIL ASL or SSO. You can run them at 6500-7500 mile oil change intervals. Search for my Analysis reports that prove that.

get a turboback exhaust and get tuned for stage 2 if youre looking into exhaust. while Cobb makes quality parts, theyre also very expensive. i myself am running an Invidia turboback and love it. V2 Downpipe w/ N1 Race Catback.

either buy an accessport or get opensource tuned after install

Don't put on a turbo back exhaust with getting some kind of engine management. The 04+ factory tunes run quite lean and they don't adjust for increased boost or power in general.

Start by reading Unabomber's Manifesto, lots of good info in there.

Also, all you need to know about BOVs and Subies (lots of bad info floating around here, hence the flaming): http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1602235

Congrats on the new car, post some pictures.


Id definitly say get a full turboback exhaust , and maybe a APS BOV their 50/50 recirculating. Maybe a STI Top Mount, and a accessport to tune.
