Anyone know what kind of spacers we can run without needing longer studs? I thought I read somewhere something about 5mm, but I'm not sure.

Not sure about universal type spacers but I think you can run bigger spacers than that if you do hub centric spacers, which are a lot better.

just get good spacers that have studs on them, better yet just buy wheels with the offset you want

Yeah I know, but I was looking at some spacers we have at work and was thinking if I could pick up a set for cheap may as well

As long as the lugnuts cover the same length of the stud as the stud is wide, you'll be good to go!

Finally got around to blacking out the window chrome last night..looks so much better without the chrome IMO.





Used some matte black vinyl that my buddy had laying around. My edges aren't the cleanest, but you cant notice unless you put your face up to it...and free is always better than the $30 pre cut strips

Got a slightly noob technical question.
Started up the car leaving work tonight and had a bigass cloud come out the exhaust. Couldn't see what color since it was dark, but any ideas? Ran just fine, revved it a little and no more smoke. Hit target boost exactly too, I dunno.

Way too vague man... Are you completely stock? What was the the outside temp? During the day verify the color of the smoke and scent. If you are that concerned go to the dealer.

AP stage one, stock otherwise. Never happened before, outside was about 75-80.
Not terribly worried, but definitely curious.

Fit Is great. I added a few extra screws to make it hold very tight with no gaps at all. The quality is good and I didn't even have to warm mine up in the sun like they recommend before installing it.

You "didn't have to" or you neglected to and got away with it? haha

Is a tune absolutely required or is it just to actually see gains? Ive heard both?

I would imagine you'd have a similar situation to running an aftermarket downpipe with no tune.



Alright guys I've got a problem. First off, specs. Bone stock with Cobb OTS Stage 1 93
On the way home tonight I started noticing that I could hear alot of air moving, almost like I had an intake installed. I switched my AP readout over to boost and noticed I was peaking at around 14.5, 2psi low from the target 16.5 (I'm normally spot on)
Boost kept getting lower and sound kept getting louder, any ideas? I'm thinking I've got a tube loose/off somewhere

eventually you'll have nearly no boost and all "whooshing" sound. My stock WRX is at Subaru now for this. The internet tells me that the tube underneath the intercooler is loose or off completely.

I've heard the same. The dealer should be able to fix it or you can get an avo I've heard some guys do that.

That's exactly it! It's the throttle body hose underneath the intercooler. My car was stock and blew it partially off after a good 2nd gear pull. The stock hose sucks to be honest. You'll probably blow it off again at some point. It sounds like you have some crazy big turbo spooling right? When you push the pedal you don't really go anywhere though. Don't continue to floor it like that. Drive like a granny to the dealer when you can. They'll most likely try to remedy it and order the part for you and reschedule you to have it replaced. If you are a good DIY'er zip tie that hose after its replaced. A buddy of mine had it pop off on the track and he ended up cracking a ringland.

After you turn the car off and check the oil cap see if there is smoke there too. Its really hard to say, unless the cloud lingered for a while, but like others have said, probably condensation from the cool/humid air.?.?

Yes, the dealer can do that for you. You have to have a subaru programmer machine....thingy.

I don't see why you would, I would recommend that you are driving on some form of EM (Cobb AP, or something)

You might reach higher boost levels faster, I don't remember the REAL gains in the the headers... unless you do EL headers, they are supposed to perform better at high rpms.

No, the 2 biggest things with down pipes are; 1) different WG integration (absence of a plate for WG exhaust(bellmouth or divorced)); 2) Absence of back pressure from catalytic convertor or use of a higher flowing cat.

The headers only provide better flow on the topend of the rpms (so I remember being lectured).

Sounds like your TMIC--->TB coupler is loose or the TMIC end tank popped off (common for 08-09 (IIRC) wrx's). Have you ever had any of the hoses off before?

Your car will idle very unevenly when that vacuum hose comes off. You can super glue it back on to fix it on your own (very common on the LGT's)
