yes. If you need great high beam light, don't do the DRL bulb change as the usable light out of the high beams is not great.

I changed my drl's to leds. They have 68 leds in each bulb and are pure white. They look sick and I get a lot of complements on them. I did lose my high beams but I don't ever need them anyways, I have hid headlights which are bright enough for anything I will come across in my area. Will post a pic if I find time.

^^ I had some on my previous STi, its messes with the relay and causes them to blink funny. They look good... just blink funky.

Don't you have to adjust the wiring to provide less power to the LEDs?

I think you have to use a resistor, there are some relays available that compensate this... but then you are doing more wiring... I say just leave it.

lol


have to get the adapter to work because it is leaking a little bit and then hack up the heat shield

Hows the TP stage2 map treating you so far? Love my stage1 (also have COBB SF), going catless DP soon, and wondering if you're having any spiking issues since we have identical mods?

TIA, Jester

haven't really tried to induce boost creep yet. so far the highest ive seen is 19psi which is the target. The tune is still learning I think, I noticed with stage 1 that when I did virtual dynos it was much smoother after a few hundred miles. So far it feels more responsive but honestly I think stock to stage 1 felt more extreme but I haven't really thrashed it too hard.

Usually stock to stage 1 is the greatest increase of power. Stage 2 usually has a little bit more tq, and more top-end power. A longer power band but not a lot more power... generally speaking

I noticed a big difference between stock and stage 1 and between stage 1 and stage 2. And now I have a stage 2 tp map with GrimmSpeed EBCS. The EBCS holds boost like a champ. It stays pinned at 19 psi pretty much til redline

I checked my transmission oil today and noticed it was a little low. I did a little research and it looks like subaru is using Extra-S 75W90 transmission oil in our cars? Can anyone confirm this. I don't want to add the wrong one and end up mixing oils.

Default LED Lights

This looks as close to I could get in real life except for the light is brighter in person, I had to take it like this in order to see the definition of the different bulbs and not just a glow which is how it is in person.



This is a pic of my trunk with the LED's in it. This is exactly how it looks in person, this pic was taken without any light source (besides the LED's in trunk, lol) or flash from the camera.



This is the light the LED DRL's emit onto my garage from about 8ft away, pretty useless but it looks awesome driving during the day with them



Picture of my LED's under the rear seats that match imo perfectly to the factory illumination kit which only has lights under that dash.



Hope I uploaded these correctly, I havent uploaded anything in awhile. Let me know if it doesnt work and I will repost.

This is about the amount of light these put out, its just without adjusting the camera you cant see the individual lights like you can in person.

Bought them off of a friend of mine. Everything was plug and play except the rear seat red leds on the floor, had to splice into the factory illumination kit, it still wasn't hard. I think his SN, is asukadc on here or asuka dc, if you PM him tell him Scott referred you. I bought the drl's on eBay but everything else from him. Should be easy to find they are the 68 led ones.

I'm loving the trunk lighting!

I don't ever use my DRL's since it's usually dark in Alaska.

Looks good. Thanks for posting pics!

You got it. The trunk is about a 3ft strip of Led's that plugs right into the factory socket and has double sided tape to adhere it to the trunk top. Very easy install.
