Here are the mods i have on it so far:

*Latest OEM Audio system with sub installed

*Full Turboback Nameless Performance 3" exhaust with High flow Cat, muffler deletes and 4 inch dw tips.

*Full ETS Cold Air Intake with box.

*Boomba Racing BOV (blue) (direct oem replacement)

*Stage 2 BrenTune E-Tune

*Raceseng Slammer Shift knob

*Perrin Shift Stop, and the Shifter Bushing
(I have the factory sti short throw shifter)

Some cosmetic things i have are:

Rally armor mudflaps,
Sequential Tailights dark smoke
Window Visors,
Painted Roof Spoiler
White Carbon fiber emblem overlays
Grille pinstripe
Carbon 3m Tints,5% rears 50% fronts

How's the exhaust set up as a DD? Is it too loud? Also what maintenance have you done other than the usual oil, brakes, tires...

Too many questions....
1. Do you get even better mpgs with the stage 2 tune?
2. What maintenance aside from brakes, tires, oil has been done?
3. How long/many miles have you been stage 2?


I thought 22k on my 16 wrx was a lot. Damn.

Does the grille pinstripe add or decrease the reliability of fresh air passing through the grille opening when you are moving at 45 mph with a head wind???

How are you liking the oem sound upgrade? You ended up getting the Kicker parts? The stock sound system is garbage on my '17 Wrx but I'm wondering if I can just get away with getting The kicker subwoofer by itself.

Or would this lead to a garbage mix of low quality speakers mixed with thumping bass? Does the sub require the rest of the system to be upgraded to compliment it? Or can I get away with only installing the sub? Thanks for the input

How do you like the STI STS With the Bushing and Shift Stop. I Just have only a STI STS and after the first 2k Miles I am hating how sloppy it is. I was debating on the shift stop and bushing. what is your feed back. Have you thought a bout putting in a kartboy or boomba shifter?

How nice are the really nice Cooper all-seasons? What are you comparing them to? How many miles did you get out of your stock tires?

I have the short throw shifter in my 2017 WRX and I will say the shift stop has made a world of difference for me. I installed it a week after I got the car. 1st and 2nd feel much smoother and deliberate when I shift.

I plan on doing the bushing as well, but the shift stop is a must have for sure.

I initially got just the kicker sub and it was a mistake, I ended up replacing all the door speakers and dash tweeters.
It worked fine at low volume, but at mid way when the stock junk speakers would start breaking up it would pull power from the sub then too.
I have no clue why a sound system does that, I even called Kicker tech help to try and understand what the heck was going on. The guy kind of gave me a descent explanation something like, "the sub signal comes from the door speakers (no clue on that one) and when they distort it drops the feed to the sub"
blah blah, replaced door speakers and now it's great

I could not live without the shift stop / bushing combo - love it with NO slop !

Do you have a youTube video showcasing this? You should be able to afford a sweet sound system.

Cool, I thought so since the current stock setup gets super crappy and distorted at the higher volume levels. So at the least I guess I should be aiming for the sub, tweeters, and door speakers.

What is your reliability like? Motor still holding up and how about the clutch? Power numbers?
