got rid of foglights and got brake ducts.

You still have that? I love the yellow man! If you ever sell it, PM me.


Also you dont need to lose full lock, we just made custom hardware for the pikes peak car.


Also just cut out the 2013 Resonator:

just replaced the front o2 sensor

pro tip: AutoZone has an o2 sensor wrench set in their "Loan A Tool" program, so you can pay a $25 deposit, borrow the wrench for a little while, then return it for a full refund. It's part #27110.

Just found out the previous owner never had the WRX tuned after installing a catback exhaust and cobb intake. Now do I spend the $500 on a tune, or an Accessport?

Just cat back or turboback?

On the 2002s the bellmouth downpipe tune isn't exactly "required". Still the best idea to actually do it.

OS tune! Just need a Tactrix cable!

I didn't get it and I don't remember what she said it was.. but I'm sure it was. I'm going to do a custom plate soon so I didn't want to do it for too long.

Kurt - I'll PM you.

Thanks!

I looked up the Openport 2.0, they're rather inexpensive. Is the main difference between this and the AP is the screen on the AP, and tune on the fly or something? Sorry for such noob questions.

I think it's the idea that with something like an Accessport you've got a reputable tuner making the maps. And they should be relatively safe. However anyone can "tune" with a cable.

I started my subaru for the first time in about 3 weeks, and finished after a side after 3 weeks of working/waiting on parts.
