I too am interested in this (2015 WRX). I have the EcoHitch with a cargo rack and would love the ability to keep an eye on my gear from that camera.

I'm excited about my purchase and have really simple questions. From what I've seen on this site, I should be able to find answers.

Thanks to everyone that shared and compiled this information.

Just wondering if anyone has inputs on the limits of this block. Haven't been able to find a place with forged anything or aftermarket cams. Looking to build later this year and want to do my homework.

Default 2015 WRX & STI Epic Thread of Knowledge

IAG and P&L sell built blocks that can be shipped to your door. No one knows the stock limits reliability since there are so many variables. Seems like each car is a little different. The Rods are iffy from what I've heard in the community. These cars are making bigger numbers but for how long is the question.

And lets not leave out the fact that he also had the ETS turbo kit on that WRX. Thats a $4,000 upgrade not including tuning.

Thanks for that! Interesting that the new head unit (and perhaps other minor production changes) increased the weight by 2 lbs on the base and it appears that the new wheel/tire combo on the premium and limited have added 16lbs. Assuming that is where the extra weight comes from +4lbs per wheel is a lot!

I think they are more like 2lbs a wheel heavier. The 18" tires might be heavier too.

Default Base WRX Fog Light Add-On

Does anyone know if the 2015 WRX Base model is already pre-wired for the fog light upgrade. I know that Subaru offers a fog lights upgrade for the base. Under the dash panel that holds the trunk release button, traction control button and interior light dimmer switch button, there is an additional plug that is attached to the wiring loom. The plug end looks like a perfect fit the the four-pronged fog light button that they use for the fog light upgradeto the base models. I have a Premium and the fog lights are controlled from the turn signal arm. But the plug/harness is behind there and I have the add-on fog light button. I want to figure out what they extra plug is used for so I can potentially use it for something else.

Also, the car they are using is a premium model and not the base. Again, I have an OEM switch. Not an "OEM style" switch. I own the OEM switch for the base model fog light upgrade. It is different from the one shown in the video.

So I just got my 2010 STI Hatch. Can you guys confirm that the 2015 STI Take-offs are a direct swap without any modifications? I believe it'll lower the car a bit as well requiring roll-center adjustment kit?

I'm thinking if I should get the R205 suspension set since it is designed for the hatch, not sure if sedan springs would be a mis-match to the hatch?

Thanks

Looking to pull the trigger soon. I have the HT Autos lip but that polyurethane is brittle... Popped a corner piece out when the 2x4 I was using slipped out going up my rhino ramps.

Regarding the above post that for whatever reason I can't edit, does anyone have or heard anything, hopefully positive, about the OLM Carbon front lip???

It's on their .pdf downloadable brochure - along with all the other specs. I found the brochure and specs a bit frustrating to find when I was initially looking for that info too.
