Im not exactly understanding this whole subaru exhaust thing, some aftermarket DP are shorter like the factory exhaust and require a "midpipe" to replace the cat? I know what i am getting is correct and i wont need one but thats odd.

That's because some are built for the j-spec cars. The exhaust lengths are different because of emissions and crap like that. Just make sure it fits a usdm Subaru and you'll be fine.

are you talking about an exhaust like the TurboXS that has a DP then an either catted or catless pipe then connects to the midpipe? so the full exhaust would be 4 pieces instead of 3.

What did you order?

Not sure what brand specifically, just that they offered a midpipe but most DPs are one peice and contain the "midpipe" so yes 4 peices. where as most seem to be 3 (DP, cat back which is 2 peices one being the muffler section)

Invidia Q300 and Invidia catless V2 Downpipe w/2 bungs so i dont have to weld one in for a wideband.

I'm not a subaru owner I'm just looking for a a barn or someplace to stick my spece30 and open trailer for a few weeks in april near milwaukee. I go to MSOE and if you see a red e30 325ix in milwaukee it must be me. I'm going to the nasa autobahn event in april and maybe the gateway event and don't have time to drive the car back and forth to my parents house up north near antigo. I asked my friend sam barros about tim sanderson in freedonia and he said I might find him here.

ok i need a little bit o help.. was planning on buying the coils today from import image, and figured since the guy was giving me a deal i might as well get the timing kit ordered.. upon searching i found 3 different ones for the same car at different prices, wondering if anyone here sees a difference..

The more expensive one is the "Ultimate" one, it probably has the racing timing belt, which you don't need. Get the cheaper one.

Yeah i think zombor is right, the first one just says timing belt and the second says super strong timing belt. the cheaper one will more than likely last longer than you will own the car.

Well, you should still change it every 90k miles, no matter what kind it is.

the squeaky squeaky is getting more annoying with it getting warmer

The problem is he has a 2.0 not a 2.5L like yours. I had the GTspec gen2 headers/Element tuning DP/perrin twin tip catback on my 06 sti sounded evil However if you put those on a 2.0 it will sound like a honda civic

who's taking their bike out of the back of their garage within the next week or so?

i hope it snows to piss you all off. there is too much salt on the road. i may start to tear mine down so i can do some exhaust work and clean the carbs like i had planned to do over winter, but got lazy.

I don't feel like reading 80 threads to find this answer so I'll ask the locals.

Replaced my front pads and rotors the other day in my 06 wrx. the stock pads had 2 shims (1 full sized slotted plate and a 'half' sized one) and a small shim retainer clip (sorry about the bad descriptions) My new pads (posiquiets) came with 1 full sized shim attached to the new pads. do i need to use that second 'half sized' shim thingy and/or the retaining clip? i couldn't fit that little clip in as it was to tight so those are out right now but i did reuse the half sized shim.

If you aren't having any stopping or noise issues I wouldn't worry about it.
