I agree it is pretty loud sometimes. I'm going to use some sound deadener in there to help with the noise. The ac compressor is pretty noisy too sometimes and I'm going to use it a lot here so I want to see if I can lower how much sound travels underneath the hood. I would think the k & n would make it louder since it should flow more air vs a stock filter

It would be a lot funner if there were a button for the VSC next to the TC button.

Which hitch did you get? Did it fit right away or did you need to mod?

I have some left over dynamat from an audio install in a previous car. I will use that as the base then throw a stock hoodliner on top to cover up all the silver lining on the dynamite. Originally I was going to use that but wanted to try and use up the stuff I already had, assuming it sticks and hasn't dried out from sitting in the garage for a few years.

Im not really sure how it will work but I'll report back once I get it on there and have driven it for a while. I figure since I already have the stuff I'll give it a shot.

The brand here in Canada it's SRG. They use 4 bolts to fix it. I don't know if they have to drill it to be flush to my bumper.

I have a CVT and i don't think i'm gonna tow (maybe a very small trailer). I use it to fix a rack for bicycle (3-4 bike).

Reminds me of the display the Focus I test drove had in-between the tach and speedo. Really wish the US spec Impreza's had this! Maybe in the '13 model??

The OEM 19 mm 2011 STi rear sway bar does.

Did you install it on your car? How much of an improvement over stock was it? I have a base so I'm pretty sure I don't have a rear sway at all. I want this to be my first suspension mod and didn't want to buy the Perrin one at $400.

The base doesn't have one so yes that would be a great idea imo.

Yeah I picked an used one up for $40 Cdn from a forum member, its installed. Its a pretty big improvement I would say when you go from not having one to having one, even though its only 19 mm.

You mean the CAI/SRI right? I don't think they make a K&N i57 that fits our cars. You would need to pick up the 57A-6044, I would think.
