Default 732xGhost's 2016 WRB Base Update Thread

Hey guys, my name is Matt. I'm 27 from South Amboy, NJ. I'm new to the Subaru world, but have been associated with it for years through friends. My roots are Honda and have been an owner for 10+ years. I hope to meet some New Jersey owners to swap ideas and roll to events.

I still own a Honda, my 2002 Honda Accord EX-L Sedan 5MT that I daily drive to work. My Accord has a decent amount of work done to it, but it still fares as a great DD. I ordered my WRX in April as a 2015, but upon delivery in late June, I ended up with a 2016. This may be one of the first few 16's in my area. Even though I DD my Accord, I love this car so much that I already have 5K+ on the odometer.

All shots will be taken on my stock Nikon D3000

How my WRX sits now:

Mileage: 5,827











Last but not least; the interior, that I'm love with:

This morning after getting a haircut, I try and start my car only to have it cranking and not turning over. After 2 tries it finally turned over, however the CEL was on. Luckily I was within 3 miles of my dealership. (Richard Lucas in Woodbridge NJ) Took it there and they got to it immediately. Found out it was a fuel injector relay. The shop used a temporary one in the meantime until the new part arrives.

I asked the service advisor if this has been a common problem and he said he hasn't seen this on this model. This happened to my dad when I let him borrow my car a few weeks ago, but I dismissed it as just him not properly starting the car. lol

I guess the silver lining to this is that even though my WRX is 2016, the ECU re-flash is still due on the vehicle and will happen after the fuel injector relay is installed. I got about 5 months of seat time in with this car so im interested to see how the re-flash feels.

Nothing special with this update. I just want to document all details.

Today I did my 2nd oil change. I've been using Motul 8100 ECO-nergy synthetic oil and an OEM Subaru filter. I also bought the Dimple magnetic oil drain plug. I've used a magnetic drain plug and every car I've ever owned.

Still awaiting the warranty fuel injector relay part. No problems so far with the temporary one.

good for the soul:

No updates as of late. Maybe some things here and there after Christmas.

Just wanted to add that rarely do I have my dashboard displays on the boost gauge. I usually like to monitor my gas mileage instead. I've read on some builds that people are boosting pretty high. At one point I most have boosted to about 20-21psi. Seems a bit high to me...

I got the Husky all season floor mats for Christmas. I chose these over the weathertech's because of price and some bad reviews from 15+ WRX owners. My girlfriend has them on her 14' Charger and the fit and quality are good. I wanted to be different and give this brand a chance.
