I like the silver wheels a lot. How much of a drop? What size wheels and tires?

18x9.5 +40. 265/35. KW V1. Out of the box they were pretty low, raised them around 1/4" all around to get some more clearance up front. Probably 1.25-1.5" drop, somewhere around there. They can go quite a bit lower too.

Good setup. I do like the look of NT03s, but man they have to be a bitch to clean with that band through all the spokes

Don't forget to get an alignment and corner balance for your set up. Ask locally for a quality shop. KWs are good stuff.

So I have been having this recurring boost leak for the last month now. It is on the red 90 degree pipe from the turbo outlet to the intercooler Y pipe. I will tighten this band down and in a few weeks it will slip off. Well after tightening it down this time I noticed it isn't sitting correctly on the red pipe. I decide to jam my phone down there to grab a picture of the back where it isn't fitting well.

... this is awesome. Going to ask the dealer WTF is up with this. They were the last ones to monkey around with my TMIC and turbo.

All the way off


Shot of the back, after I tighten it down best I can.

I won't. It's definitely still drivable, I just probably shouldn't push it. Good thing the Sunday autocross was canceled or else I would have pushed it

I have 30k maintenance I need to get to, so I will have them look at it then. Not too please after seeing that.

A small group of us KC guys are heading out tomorrow around 2 p.m. Should be hitting your area round 4 p.m. if you wanted to join up.

Take of that screw clamp. It's just going to keep chewing the elbow. Use a t-bolt clamp, and you should be fine.

It won't get better, you need a new coupler. Same thing happened to me on my 06. The c-clamp wasn't tightened enough, and from boosting out of turns so much it puts alot of pressure and movement in there. So little by little over time the clamp started sliding and eventually cut into the rubber coupling. You can either get the oem one or one from autozone. Also don't use the same clamp. There are different style tightening ones. I forgot which one i got but it fixed the issue. It won't be easy getting the new one on tho. Good luck man

Yeah I need to do this. I have a big problem with worm gear clamps, they are garbage. I have been wanting to replace the two large worm gears on the throttle body hose as I have heard those are always a trouble spot and good idea for 2 T-bolt clamps.

Any idea what is the outer diameter of this 90 degree red hose is so I can pick up the right clamp? Should be fun trying to get in on there.

Turbo outlet flange: 2.0" (54-62mm)
TMIC inlet: 2.5" (67-75mm)
TMIC outlet: 2.75" (73-81mm)
Throttle body: 2.75" (73-81mm)

For the last three, having the silicone hoses installed increases the OD a bit, so slightly larger clamps would probably work as well (2.75-3.0").

JSchell: a whole lot easier to just remove the intercooler with the elbow attached. Isn't the OD 2.5"? At least that's what I thought.... Not too sure so don't quote me on that.

Edit: turbogc8 beat me to it...

Thanks for the help guys. I will check my local hardware stores and pick up an assortment of these. Should be a good project for a slow day. I really should replace that hose too while I am going through all this.

Yup, I would replace it. Vibrant makes a real good product that is usually a real good fit. I have never had any issues...

With as shredded as that hose is, you definitely need to replace it. A new clamp will only act as a bandaid.

like others said, that wheel thread is ur go-to for this. if you want to be able to drive the car and make u turns, lets say 18x10 with a 275/35-18 with rolled rear fender. absolutely no mods at all you would probably be able to do a 18x 9.5 with a 235 tire.

when I had stock suspension i had a 18x9.5 +38 with a 265/35 and the rears rubbed hard with little effort... my buddy had the same setup but with a 245/40 and his rears rubbed pretty easily too. this question has many answers, so we need to know what you plan to do with the car and what your expected outcome is. My little seed of advice, just get the rears rolled, get over not doing it because if you want better wheels at all you will have to do this. I didn't want to and had to suck it up, but the lip on the rears is no joke.

Besides I love the LED 3rd brake light and it matches my other led brake lights. And I think there might be a clearance issue with the other wing on it when the trunk opens.

Thank you! Yeah its single, double looks better but love the sound of single.
I have an STI trunk on my wrx. I have the base model (no spoiler) and I didn't like the sti spoiler at all when I bought mine, I liked the wrx spoiler even less. The sti spoiler grew on me after about a year. I kept walking up to my car and thinking it was missing something. The sides and front of our cars have pretty aggressive features but the back doesn't as much Imo. I was told by someone that the body of our cars was designed with the spoiler on it and then they removed it for the wrx models (not sure if it's true) mine is debadged , I have no intent on making people think I have an sti, I just feel it completes the rear of the car, I also did a trunk swap with another pearl white with no cash involved which made it easier for me to decide I wanted it. Do what you want.

I've heard zebra clamps are even better. Never tried them myself though.
