Word to the wise if you get a Mishimoto check for leaks before you get it I've been driving for 3 days with the smell of coolant and couldn't find a leak. I pulled the radiator mounts and sure as hell the core was leaking and spraying on the condenser but you couldn't tell because its so hot on the radiator it dried up the coolant before it could drip

Your profile says your car is an 04', which is now 8 model years old. Vehicles age in years, too. If say you only have 50k on your WRX 2 years from now, change the timing belt due to age.
