Not really hardest part is removing manifold..I would invest in some phenomical spacers cheap and evective since manifold sits directly on heads it helps keep intake tract temps cooler

A video of the STPR event behind my moms house. The roads I free up driving on. Also a major factor in why I love subarus.

So im buying the blouch 18gxt turbo, 1000cc DW injectors and Grimmspeed Electronic Boost Controller. Figured if I can get 360+ to the wheels and ill be a happy camper with a stock block. I plan to tune to E-85 too, is there any of that stuff in the valley? If not ill have to get a monster map for 91 octane since there isnt any 93 octane in kansas.

Went to drop my wifes phone off to her at work, and her window was smashed out. They said landscapers were working here this morning but there was glass on the ground. Ain't no way a rock busted it out. So I did a police report and there reviewing cameras. Luckily the camera is facing our vehicle.

I told the Cop that there were construction dudes near it and when I.pulled in, they scattered. My wife said they talk **** all the time.
So I hope it was them, because they would end up losing there large contract, and we can file charges, because her coworkers windows have been busted out 4 other times this year.

So my vehicle is sitting at Bert Ogdens waiting for new factory tint glass to arrive from Brownsville. And I had to miss work, so there goes part of my vacation, and since my deductible is high, there goes a few hundred dollars for vacation.

Motherfuxkers.

Not that I had seen. I was in the auto shop office the majority of the time, so I can't say if it came in while I was there or not. But I didn't see any BRZ's.

I suprisingly had good service from the auto shop lady, Paulette?, and the guy who answered the phone for subaru service desk. They still have an airhead who answers phones, and the ladies at autobody desk seemed way more concerned about some crafts and purse or something. They were typical employees. Haha.

So my vacation will probably be spent fixing my foresters and spending money.

My 2010, needs door dings fixed, and rock chiped window replaced. And possible paint job in those areas. I hope not too costly.

And my 2008, hopefully I can order all the front end stuff and get if installed. Need new bumper ordered and painted, new brake pads, rotors turned(maybe), all fluids, spark plugs, inspection sticker, maybe belts replaced( or tightened, a/c recharged, and chassis and moving parts all lubed/greased/ oiled.
Then claybarred, washed, and waxed.

**** Bert Ogden. Them dumb bastards called me today and said it was for sale. My wife went in with deposit and they said they sold it. To the guy who ordered the 2014.

So many discrepencies with that dealer. They don't know ass from elbow. **** them..

The guy went total douche mode after I told him they had discrepencies. He's the bitch that called me saying it was for sale, and the next in line was me.

I will be voicing it to Subaru of America!

The dude even said if I had any issues ( the last time) call him personally! So I did, he's half the ****ing problem!!!!

So they lost all of my business!
And I hope all of you guys stop doing businesss there as well.

There are plenty of better, honest dealerships out there ( probably outside of valley) that would be happy to have your business. And hopefully not screw you over.

I have to agree i preordered the brz a month before official ordering began and went in day one to put in a actual order.

I was the first person by months and they jack up the price above msrp? Thats a joke. I called for my frs on monday drove the 4 hours to San Antonio on saturday and picked it up at MSRP

Thats the way it should have been done for my brz hell it should have been even easier since i ordered so far ahead and the dealers closer.

And I have a picture of the factory price tag! My wife seen it today, and Bert Ogden changed it, so now it says something in the $30k range.

I've called other Subaru dealerships and they said they are selling BRZ's at sticker price and Bert Ogden is not allowed to make a customer pay for Xylon, since they didn't order the car that way. But noooo, their gonna make you buy it or try to.

I must say that I really like the brz's interior way more than the frs's! I was gonna buy it, but it was way to small for me. Im gonna wait til the new wrx comes out, I bet it's bigger, faster, and will kick that brz's tail any where!

Also, check out my thread in the dealership reviews and post in there as well :] .... Hope to see some of you guys at a gathering I will be hosting tomorrow, I'm sure the only Subaru's that will be in attendance will be myself and Aluma... The details are on the last post in the previous page..

Welcome! We managed to fit 4 grown men in there and drive around. Kids wouldn't be too bad as long as they're less than 5ft 10ish.
