Miss mine too.





And an 02 bugeye that I can't find a pic of.


Buy 18's motor and keep it. Especially if the cars in good shape. Of all the cars I've bought and sold (a lot) I miss my turbo subies the most.

insurance only went up 200 a year. This will probably get 6k on it by end of 2013.

Hahahaha luckily 18psi isn't over there...

wrxforums is a really good forum for the 2008 and up Wrx/STi's ... Lots of specific information pertaining to those years. They recently changed the name to something more generic to open it up to the newer generations to come in the future. Personally I think it was a bad move because it's TOO generic.... but oh well too late now

Haha thats weird that they removed that... dont see why there would be any need to?!?!

What year is yours? My brother just picked up a 2010 silver hatch and he's loving it! I always said if I got another it would be a hatch next time. Love how much room there is back there!

**Edit** - Maybe with all the Subaru interest we should have an Official Subaru Chat thread? hahaha we completely derailed this one

It's in the way when you do a front mount. I had to move mine but most find it far easier to just remove it.

Your **** was abused.

interesting. It looks like it had those dual read horns at one point, i see the old mounting bracket for them, but I didnt notice any evidence of a FMIC. The PO didnt seem to know much when I asked, only that he did the bad tint job on the taillights. But it could have been done before him, he just bought it at a local dealer last year.

But what you say, I could buy. that's the trouble with buying these things, hard to get one unmodded. And with buying used in general, never know what youre really getting.

For example, I've kept my orginial door/shelf speakers and radio in my altima for the day I finally sold it. When I opened the box I've kept them in, I only found 3 speakers. Suffice to say, the car now only has 3 speakers installed.

Uh ohhhh.. The front bumper comes off really easily maybe rip that off and check for other obvious signs from a FMIC. Check the turbo bolts and see if it was swapped. I wouldn't be worried unless it had a turbo swap. FMIC is pretty harmless.

I've been on nazicock, i-crub, iwsti, and all the major tuning forums since before you swam in your dads *****. Blow me.

turbo looks untouched, although I havent removed the heatshield. Vlad suggested the turbine shield gets cut/modded to fit a larger turbo.
