But then again, the CVT Limited Rex with all my options sits around the same price as the Base STI... So there's that... Lol

Either way I am stoked to see Mishimoto starting develop products for the new cars, I would be super interested in some silicone hose kits & some catch can setups to say the least
Thanks! A CVT review is on the way. Silicone products are certainly on our to-do list for the 2015!

Huh. I guess the definition of "VTD" has changed since I bought an Outback a few years ago. Thanks for checking out the rear diff!

Now to find out if it is still an R160 and what I can swap in. Guess that's the price of not waiting for the FA engine to hit the STI.

I don't care much, but I have a regular passenger who does. And I bet I could find a rear-seat passenger you would care about!

It looks like the catback off the GV's will fit, can you guys confirm? Subaru lists the part numbers as the same. Our 15 just came in we are waiting to pick it up and I have a Q300 off our 13 that I would love to just slap on. I talked with the guys at ISC today too about fitting the coils they said everything should work so I picked up the STI version bottom mounts for the fronts to accommodate for the 6 speed.

The cat-back appears extremely similar to the GV unit. Without having them side-by-side we cannot confirm this 100% quite yet. We will try to provide an absolute answer as soon as possible!

Thanks for following our thread!

Any idea whether 2014 WRX or STI drivetrain components are compatible? I'm especially wondering about axles, differentials, and rotors. (Hi ho, hi ho, that open diff has got to go. ) I would also echo earlier concerns about that turbo cover plate being plastic. Is the structure there to allow an easy swap in of something stronger?

Thanks, for pointing out the camber adjustment and control arms. And thanks for answering questions for all of us who are impatient to get ours!

There's no sound tube off the intake into the interior on the WRX like the BRZ right?

Excellent work Mishimoto guys! I'm on track towards buying a WRX CVT in a couple of months so I'm very interested in what you are doing. Here's a question I posed in another thread: do you know if the CVT is belt- or chain-driven?

How do the LEDs compare to HIDs in terms of color and projection at night? Are the LEDs daytime running lights like on an Audi?

If you could do one modification for under $500, what would it be and why?

Thanks!

Please don't laugh but in one of your videos can you point to oil drain plug?

I just requested this same thing in their vid. The owners manual doesn't identify it very well.
Just goes to show you that your 'dumb' question is prolly the same one someone else has.

Default Humm ...

Good initial summary on the 2015 WRX w/ CVT. I've owned a 02 WRX, 04 STI and currently in an 08 M3. I've recently been more serious switching back to Subaru and looking at the 2015 WRX Limited w/ CVT and 2015 STI Limited. I'm curious to your findings especially the CVT and it's limitations/potential ...

I watched the video again, this has to be some of the best video's I have ever seen for a car. It feels like I'm watching a overview for a class on modding. Thanks for doing this and keep it coming!

Question, are these video's going to be just overview's or will you start modding and sharing? Sorry if I missed it.

Oh, and how well protected is the turbo down there, after the Tesla shrapnel hits I wonder about this.

Sorry, it appears that none of these drivetrain components are compatible with previous generations. As described in our last video, the rotors and braking system are new as well. The turbo cover plate is actually quite stout, and utilizes an aluminum skid plate. Check it out in the images below.

Thanks for the inquiries!

It is reasonably sized. The compressor inlet features a 47mm inner diameter.

Correct, this vehicle is not equipped with a sound generator.

Yes, the LED lights function as daytime running lights.

Sure thing! Check it out in the image below. A few things to note, the plug head is 14mm and is accessible without removing the under-tray. Check it out below.

Thanks for following. The car is currently under the knife as our team begins product development on several components. Hopefully we can get it back together soon for an on-road review.

Thanks for the kind words! At this point the series will be for video reviews. Once we begin digging deeper into product development we will put together build-threads for each of our products. Would you prefer a video series for this or a standard build-thread with images? Any feedback would be great.

The turbocharger and oil pan are very well protected by a very robust skid plate. Check it out below!

Great stuff, the skip plate should be more than enough.

Im more of a noob at modding so others can chime in on what they want to see.

Btw, my first post was a joke lol

Mishimoto, you guys are doing an awesome job. I have watched all your video reviews. Keep it up!

I am interested in the springs on the new model and whether or not the springs from say RCE (yellow and black) fit the 2015, it seems they would lower the car slightly which could help. And the black RCE "Regular Guy" springs worked on the stock struts.

While it's a little disappointing to hear drivetrain won't swap in, it stops me from shopping. And I'm glad to see that plate is so substantial.

WOW. Thank you guys SO much!

Yes, the plate is very robust. The mounting arms are rather thick and should take quite a beating.

Thanks for the scoop on the wheel+tire combo. 24 lbs for the stock wheel (17x8 55ET) seems rather heavy! But at least that is an easy problem to remedy.
