Thanks!
My first 5:

Plastidip front grill and hella install
18x9.5 +40 Black Rota D-force w/ 265/35/18 Falken Azenis
Cobb AP Stage 1
STI Spoiler/paint matched trunk trim/chrome window sill delete

I group them together because I did them at same time. Next up is tint and interior vinyl. Next big mod is the invidia q300 and kartboy SS with front shift bushing.

Just for geewiz, you can find the AEM intake the cheapest on amazon.com. it is for sale for around $220, way cheaper than vendors on here from what I have seen.

Look into OAKOS for the kartboy SS in the vendor threads. They have free Shipping and I asked what discounts they would give us nasioc'ers and they hooked it up with $10 off as well. I'm going with kartboy SS and both front/rear bushings!! Check them out.

Iv read that sone people have carried the stock bov up to 22psi no problem. Can you explain why a struggling bov would make that noise though? Like what's physically causing the sound I make during boost?

The stock bpv can go to 22psi on the STI because it is metal, but the WRX stock bpv is plastic and leaks at stage2+. Physically I cannot explain it, what does any other leak sound like though? It only happens when you are in boost, so I can only assume it is the BPV. I don't know how much power your pushing, but the stock intercooler will leak at higher power levels as well.

FYI, if you haven't done at least a Stage 1 tune, you're missing out.

With RomRaider we estimated 279WHP for my ride. I feel like I'm in my 05 STI again!

Note: Includes Cobb dp and 90-octane Alaska gas.

Thanks!

Can anyone point me in the right direction for a 3G Trunk Swap Guide? I'm not finding anything specific for our cars, just people doing it based on experience from previous models.

Quick Question, Ive seen people say both things and coming from a Honda I do not really know. To do a Cobb intake do you have to the AP/Tune at the same time or is it just recommended. I know to get any power it needs a tune but will I hurt the motor if they are spaced out?

Only reason I ask is I received the cobb intake for a Birthday present and I don't have the fund atm to do the AP/Tune right now.
