Default Just got my first Subaru. A 2003 bugeye.

I have to say I absolutely love this car. I'm new to 5 speeds but I picked it up quick and am getting better daily. I will post a few pictures of it tomorrow. I have a few things I need to work out with it but I am absolutely stoked to be a part of the club.

EDIT: Pictures

Pictures are up! And it has 100k miles with the downpipe and exhaust from an STI. It has a lowered suspension, don't remember what brand. It's almost entirely stock but I plan on changing this soon.

loose the bov unless you need it. get a catless uppipe before the catted up destroys ur car.

timing belt needs to be done at 100k

use good oil?rotella t6 has a good following

Buy a tactrix cable and get a pro tune when you want.

-i think thats all.

Won't getting a catless uppipe cause the car to fail emissions inspection?

Not necessarily, but check with your local chapter. You have post turbo cats that should take care of unburnt fuel in your exhaust. Removing the uppipe turbo would give you quicker spool on your turbo and possibly save things flying into the blades. Lotsa reading to do on that in the uppipe part of the manifesto.

Very clean ride man, love the bugeyes.

I live in california.... with bad smog restrictions.... get a tune or a 2.2kohm resistor and install uppipe.

btw all new subies have no cat in the uppipe for this reason. As long as you have the stock dp then you should pass.
