Does anyone have a catted downpipe that I could borrow for about 1 month? It would need to mate up to my 3" TurboXS catted midpipe. A JiffyLube tech was especially thorough in his emissions/inspection check... That's a first. I could reciprocate in beer.

Hey everyone at RMIC, this may be a bit more than a simple question but I'll be taking my car to Solid Autoworks in a week or two for a diagnosis anyway, unfortunately Paul doesnt know off hand what my issue is so I was hoping one of you might have some insight I could relay to him. I own an 07 WRX sedan and the issue I'm having is after I drive for any period of time and clutch in, the engine will drop to idle but then rev up to almost 2k rpms then drop back and repeat several times, reaching slowly decreasing top rpms before stopping. This issue came to a head the other day when after a 600 mile roadtrip to cedar city the car died after doing its uncontrolled engine rev, and it died about 5 times in a row everytime I clutched in.

Edit: in case this might help, the possibly relevant mods I have are a cobb cold air intake, ACT stage 2 clutch, invidia downpipe and a cobb 50/50 BPV. And I occasionally blow two codes which according to my accessport are a misfire in cylinder 1 and pfffe which I believe is also a misfire code.

New to the Subaru scene, recently bought a bugeye with a spun bearing. Car came with a home made rotated turbo kit on it, long story short I got a used motor and am up and running now. Question is im looking for someone to tune it. All the car is going to be is a daily back and forth to work not really looking for tons of power just something reliable. Any names would be appreciated.

My Forester has recently been getting a lot worse fuel economy.

What are the first things you guys would check to troubleshoot?

Your right foot. Then fuel filter.

That was my first guess. Drove it like a damned grandpa over the last 2 tanks. Also found ways to include a lot more freeway driving too, as most of my driving is local. Cruise control always on 65 too.

Haven't done better than 21-22 mpg.

Just like that. Also site. Before you start a new and dumb thread use the search button first. But kudos to you for proper use of this thread.

HAHA that outback had no idea what to do. That thing is a damn monster! Did he just spin his tires through those redlines? If he didn't I'm not sure what was with the random flooring it then letting off, either way this build is amazing.

Ok guys, I need a bit of help. My girlfriend drives an 06 impreza n/a and it has a faulty clockspring. I am fairly mechanically inclined, as I've done all my own work on my 08 wrx, but working around the airbag makes me a bit nervous. I've never done steering wheel swaps or anything of the sort so I want to make sure I don't blow it up in my face. I've gotten the screws loosened and the center of the steering wheel removed (yes I disconnected the negative battery terminal and bled all excess power through the brake lights) I'm just not sure in what order to pull the plugs for the airbag, and the tabs are a bit difficult to get off. Do they disconnect from the clockspring? Or from the back of the airbag itself? And once I undo the center bolt and remove the steering wheel do I need to unplug anything farther down the column to remove the current clockspring? Thanks in advance and sorry for the novel, just trying to give as much info as possible.

Just start disconnecting everything connected to the steering wheel prior to pulling it off, you will be fine, also a steering wheel puller is a waste, just give it some jiggle and a bit of strength and it comes off easy.

So I got the wheel off, good thing I left that bolt with a couple threads on because I probably would have broken my nose haha. The biggest pain was trying to figure out how the clips all released. Now that the wheel's off I'm just waiting for a member on here to get back to me with the part (unless someone on here has one locally they want to sell me) and we will be good. I also have to do her brake pads, and am looking to replace her cracked driver side tail light. Needless to say she doesn't take the greatest care of her car. If anyone happens across this post and has the parts I need that would be awesome. Otherwise I'll be scouring the site next weekend. Thanks for all the help!

Just an update on the idle issues I was having. Turns out the engine revving and stalling out like that was due to having the cobb bpv in 50/50 mode, I tried setting it to full recirc and it fixed both the issues. And the cylinder one misfire ended up being due to a super dirty MAF sensor, had Solid autoworks clean it off real good and haven't blown a code in 1k miles since then.

Updates! Still waiting for the clockspring to come in, I found a used but working one for 50 bucks out of a wrecked wrx, and made sure the part numbers matched before ordering (why have 3 different kinds for that year?) I will be doing the brakes today after I get off work, and then I just have to get it registered. If anyone has a spare driver side tail light for an 06 impreza I'd gladly take it off your hands. Since I'm at work and don't have much time to search does anyone know of a good paint shop that will repaint the front bumper on my 08 wrx as well as the chrome trim on my hatch without breaking my wallet in half? Any help is greatly appreciated, now that the weather is warming up I can't wait to see all the clean RMIC cars in person. Have a good Friday!
