2005 wrx 1st mods? and GAS PROBLEM
Hey everyone just got my wrx about 1 month ago and looking for some cheap upgrades. any suggestions ?

I also want to mention ive been having this problem when i turn on my car and let it warm up a bit it starts to smoke at idle and when i pull out my driveway after about a 5 min warm up it smokes even more when i push the throttle. I also noticed ive been loosing a bit more gas than i did when i bought the car on regular driving. im thinking it might be the o2 sensors but im not sure. what do you guys think? WTF

white smoke usually means headgasket !Notfunny!

do you think its completely blown of just a leak? because it happens here and there. either way probably gonna check it out and replace

Have you changed the oil yet?

SoSmoodit 07-13-2012 10:16 PM

Yes right after i got the car. problem seemed to have disappeared and gas is turning back to normal. not sure what the problem was but it lasted a good 3-5 days.

Hks hi power muffler and hks ssqv bov. Tuned for both.

Could be a bad oil seal in the turbo. Just my $.02 though.

You can't tune for the bov and not really for the muffler either, atleast you won't see any gains past what stage one will get you unless you have a DP as well. Do you know how it was tuned?

Some if not most chargers will see less oil consumption from raising idle ... not sure if you changed weights or not.

I myself isn't sure. That's what I was told from the dealer I bought it from. I'm new to the whole concept.
