Default 574907wrx05 "the Swan mans wrx" thread

My name is J.J. Swan and I recently bought a wrx. I have always been a truck guy but have wanted a wrx forever. I’m starting this thread to fully jump into the AK Subaru community. I have been to some meets and have been on NASIOC almost every day and have learned a lot. I’m starting to figure out this forum and all the lingo. I intend to post pics and my current thoughts on mods made and mods to come. I’m open to any suggestions and constructive criticism. With help from people in this AK Subaru community I hope this thread will familiarize myself with how this forum works, my car, and fellow Subaru owners in the area.

Welcome!! I was told gasket for the DP your oem one can work unless there's cracks and may cause leak but if your oem gasket looks good you can still reuse it!! As for ur up pipe, check out underground racing shop that's where I get my gaskets from!! Good quality too for under $10 bucks.. Man I want an up pipe!! Hehe again welcome!!

I have some heat wrap coming from e bay and some gaskets from p3. Probably wrap up pipe and down pipe to first bracket as soon as parts come in and then wait for my next paycheck to do install so I can afford tune after. Proly gonna wrap headers while i have it all apart too!

Hood Scoop should get primed tmrw. Hopefully painted by Friday.

Hood scoop status:
Primer had reaction to spray paint and looks like desert now:-(

Waiting on heat wrap still but gaskets are in. Having some hid issues. Trying to decide if I wana overhaul hid lights and go back to halogen lights or replace with Better hid's. Would like to get headlights with out halos and leds and just get plain oem. Either way headlights up pipe and down pipe with gaskets and heat wrap and tune won't happen all on this paycheck!!!

Friendly Reminder: This Swan is not like the others. ;p No affiliation with the current AKIC "Swan" Clan. Just a random coincidence, or so i'm told! ;p
