Matt,


Sorry to hear about your endlinks, you can send pictures directly to me, tech@perrinperformance.com. If you could send pictures with them still installed in the front, looking from the front of the car to the back, that would be the best.

Question. I have a 2011 wrx with 25mm front, 22mm rear and front and rear endlinks all from yall. My front endlinks keep making a clunk and pop noise. I have had a shop look at them two time and they don't know why. Everything is installed right. Do you know what the problem could be? Thanks

I have an '08 WRX sedan. I also have an accessport installed with the stage 1 map. I bought the car used and the previous owner removed the mufflers. No other mods have been done to the best of my knowledge.

I'm considering your TBE. Will I get a map with this or will I hve to purchase it seperately?

Thanks

Thanks for the purchase and the msg. Best to send us a photo of each endlink installed on the car. Send those pics to Tech@PERRINPerformance.com along withy your contact information. Then we can inspect the photos, make suggestions, etc right away. We look forward to getting you happy and silent operation ASAP!

Thanks for asking! If you purchase the TBE you can then use the COBB Stage Two Mapping included with your current AP. But if you would like the PERRIN Tuned Map Stage Two for your application, we can help with that too. Mention to your salesperson during the sale that you would like one and they will help you out.

Thanks again folks! Enjoy the weekend!

Just wondering about the Perrin cold-air intake for 2011 wrx. Wondering if anyone has had problems with it, or if they like it. Generally speaking people say to leave the intake alone on this car, but I'd still like to do it as long as I don't see any negative side effects (louder doesn't count as bad in my books).

No one has had any issues with it, on the stock tune, the intake will run great on your 2011 WRX. It will give you more power, and a little sound.

Looking at the Perrin aftamaf hose for my 2011 wrx (completely stock). Is this a good idea? Any advice? I would like to keep the stock airbox in tact but want to ditch that horribly bent, corrugated stock hose. My only concerns I guess is screwing up the AF ratio and or having the CEL pop up

The AFTAMAF will do just what you're looking for. It won't affect the MAF readings, since it's after the MAF sensor.

I have a Perrin EBCS installed in an 08 WRX and one of the threaded nipples that screws into one of the ports on the side of the EBCS is freely movable, as in it is not tightened all the way down. Should those nipples connecting the hoses to the EBCS be screwed in tightly or will they be okay if they are not screwed in all the way? I hope I used the right terms.

hey guys. I have a 2010 impreza 2.5i and I was thinking about buying the front strut brace nd the 22mm rear bar. I see the front is mad easy to install but how about the back? I was looking at the instructions online but I couldn't get an exact feeling for it. I really wanna get them and just wanna make sure they'll fit my model and how much better my ride will be. thanks guys

Installing the rear bar actually isn't too difficult on your car. We have kits that include everything you need, including OEM brackets for the swaybar bushings, bolts and endlinks for a complete install. You can find these kits on our website here.

The rear swaybar will help body roll greatly, while not affecting ride quality much. If you have any more questions, let us know!

Hello, I have a 2011 WRX and recently installed your FMIC.... I have to say it looks great, but I am a little upset about how much bumper work needed to be done ... The IC would hAv fit great if only it had been 3/4" smaller in length and the bottom were Angled in toward the car... Then no cutting of the bumper would have been needed

Is the aftamaf for the 2011 wrx the same as the 05+ legacy?

Lake,

The 2011 WRX AFTA MAF is the same part number as the AFTA MAF for the Legacy. Thanks!

I just received the perrin front strut bar in the mail and installed it on my 11 wrx sedan. It was listed as 08 wrx part but assumed it fits the 2011 as most 08+ parts do. My concern is that the bolts don't come completely through the nut on the feet. Also, the foot doesn't seem to sit very flush on the car. Are these problems or just how the part fits. Thanks for your help

Lake,

That is normal, since the strut brace takes a some space, the nut will sit a little higher than normal, but it is fine. The foot is going to sit higher than the sheet metal on the ends since there is a bump in the middle of where the foot sits. That makes it not look flush, but is normal.

Hey Chris, wondering if you can help me out with a Perrin BPV I bought off another member here. I was told that this extra line (made by goodyear) came with the BPV, and needs to be installed along with the BPV. Im wondering if that's true, and where the heck it goes?

Just bought a fuel rail kit from you guys and installed on my 08 STi. My tuner did the install and removed all stock fuel lines. The car is throwing a code for the evap sensor. Is this normal? My tuner was going to research ways to hook it back up but figured I'd ask you guys.

I would like for Perrin in general to be able to offer single parts from kits if possible. For example pieces from the rotated turbo kits. Maybe the Up-pipe alone or the downpipe alone both in the 2.5 discharge and 3inch discharge. As some to most of us do not require the whole tuner's kit.

The hose is an air breather line for the PCV system....probably run buy the owner to an oil catch can... it IS NOT needed for your BPV.
Your BPV however is MISSING the aluminum elbow on the bottom of the valve that the recirc pipe reconnects to. What you essentialy have in your picture is a vent to air valve (without the elbow on the bottom of the red annodized valve body). Ask whoever sold it to you where the elbow went to

Chris is playing catch up for being gone for a week, so let me answer your questions!

It seems like this causes a lot of CEL's. People install the rails and either ditch all the OEM evap stuff, or hook it up wrong. I think we need to put a diagram on the instructions to help you all out. First off, for 100% just hook it up like stock. The only variable to this is on the 02-06 cars, you can remove the small round thing at the front of the manifold, and just go right to the turbo intake. Other than that, don't mess with it. I understand you end removing some of it for the install, just put it back the way it was after you are done. After that make sure you have the hose from the blue tee (or solenoid on newers cars) running back to the evap line at the fire wall. If you need the diagram, send me an email and i will shoot it over to you.

On a few cars that are stage 2 or 3, i have heard compressor surge after install do to the inlet hose freeing up the turbo a bit more. So if you car didn't have compressor surge prior to the inlet hose, it probably was on the edge of having it and the inlet hose pushed it over just a bit. Also keep in mind that all 2.5 turbo cars with stock turbos will have compressor surge around the 2800-3400 RPM when running 18psi or more. That is completely normal.

We always have, but its not something we put up on our site. The uppipe and downpie is a hard one because they are made together and in sets because of the nature of how the items move a bit in welding. But we still sell them separate form time to time.

Regarding just the downpipe in 2.5" we don't offer that anymore at all. If you have a Garrett Turbo with the 2.5" outlet, you can just get the 3" housing and be done. If you have a Precision turbo, they also offer an exhaust housing that fits the Garrett 3". Also keep in mind our DP will no fit onto some other turbo kits uppipe. It would be really rare that someone put the turbo in the exact place we did. But if you have an older PERRIN turbo kit, we would be more than happy to help you get the parts you need. If you are trying to fit a non Garrett or PT turbo to our kit, then you will need some custom work. Maybe our uppipe will work, but the downpipe for sure will not as the outlet flange will not line up.

Its hard to offer the turbo kits we have with the "Limited Turbo choices" let alone something that requires all new uppipes and downpipe and intakes, different turbos and all that stuff. Currently our "Turbo Kits" have by far more options than any other item we sell and we are approaching 100 part numbers for what we have. That doesn't count the EFR stuff!!!

Hope that helps!

This is a silly question, but I tried to install the Perrin battery tie down on my Legacy, and the threaded rod in the front is too short to put the nut back on. Do I need to buy a rod for an STI maybe?
