New to the site???? Ready to post??? Please Read Me First!!!

If you're new here take some time to look around and check the site out a little before you submit your first thread or post. This will save you alot of headache when trying to get your question(s) answered.

Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of your experience at WRXTuners.com.

1. Familiarize yourself with the rules and policies of the site: This will save you alot of trouble with knowing what's allowed and what isn't. We try not to be too strict when it comes to things, but if you're aware of what's acceptable and what's not, you're less likely to break the rules and have us on you about it. These are located here.

2. Check out the forum descriptions: These are listed after the forums title. This will help you post in the correct forum and save the moderators from having to move threads to their correct forums. It will also help you get the most info for your particular question.

3. Using the search function: This is a touchy subject simply because it's unacceptable for members to just tell you to "do the search". This is how you avoid all of that. Type specific keywords into the search window. This will let the site work for you, instead of having the longer active members getting on your case for not doing so. Click me to perform a search.

Engine Management: (Cobb AP, UTEC, etc...), type either Cobb AP, or simply AP into the search window. If you want info on the UTEC, type TXS UTEC, or simply UTEC.

Exhaust Systems: (Helix, Cobb, Perrin, Borla, etc...) Type in the perspective company's name. Other keywords that might help you would be TBE, or turbo-back exhaust. CB, or cat-back.

This style of searching goes for any part or mod that you can think of. If it's been done, we more than likely have someone that's done it, or knows someone that has.

These are just a couple of examples, but you should get the idea. Another thing that will help you to perform an effective search is to do it in the appropriate forum. You're not going to want to do your search for an exhaust in the handling section, know what I mean?

4. Use descriptive thread titles: Be specific and to the point.

An example of a bad thread title would be: "Newb here, need help". We all know you need some advice, you wouldn't have posted if you didn't.

A better thread title would be something a little more descriptive. More to the point. Something like: "Car runs bad after bov install".

And finally:

5. Type like you have some sense. We're not going to correct you for minor typing errors, but if you're posts/threads are not legible, we will edit them to be so. Please don't be offended, it just helps the members that have been here longer to understand and help you better. This is what we're all here for, to learn and to help one another out.

With all of that out of the way, welcome to the forums and we hope that you enjoy your stay.

Downpipe/Uppipe difference???


I see that some downpipes/uppipes come with/o the flex part section. Will this flex pipes make a difference. Any information on what PROS OR CONS will I get out of any of these pipes.

and take a look at this diagram before asking lots of exhaust questions (also I put it here so we can all find this easily)



and this diagram is for 02-05s... you 06-07 guys don't have a CAT in your up pipe so no need to worry about that one

This is still a valid exhaust diagram for the 2013 STi and WRX.

Right hand corner on each forum page that lists the threads is a blue oval button that says "new thread".It's right next to the "search first" button and over top the "forum tools" button.

Hi Mosc, my name is David, I have a 2005 WRX 2.0- Thanks for the exhaust diagram. this car is out of warranty 79k on the mileage. and ready for a few Choice upgrades. the exhaust being the item i need to know as much as possible. I will not be racing the car per- say, but the next time a Mustang Gt wants to dance I want to be dancing with the stars. In your opinion, is this the first step?Thanks in advance

Yep, upgrading the exhaust is usually the first step. You should aim for a basic "Stage 2" setup: aftermarket downpipe + Stage 2 ECU reflash. Look for a decent bellmouth-style downpipe (preferably one with a high-flow catalytic converter). If you choose to upgrade the cat back as well (do this for added looks and sound, not added power - it doesn't really add much power... the stock downpipe is where the real restriction is), you'll have a complete turbo-back exhaust, or tbe. So, if you choose, pick up a cat back that you like the look/sound of and finally, get some type of Stage 2 tune on your car. This can be done via Cobb AccessPORT, tactrix cable & opensource map, or a custom tune from any number of professional speed shops. More info can be found on these topics here: Unabomber's Manifesto - NASIOC

Edit: also, since your car is a pre-06 model, your up pipe has a catalytic converter in it - which is located just before your turbo. When you start adding power, especially on cars with higher mileage, the cat in your up pipe can break down and send bits into your turbo, sometimes causing catastrophic turbo/engine failure. So for you, upgrading to a catless up pipe is a popular safety mod.

Thanks for this site. I can see much work has gone into it. I'm a BRAND newbie (be gentle ) sti owner (2010 SE) converted from 20 years of being a Jeep guy. Know next to nothing about my new rig, but will learn much from the knowledge base here. Just wanted to say hello and give some props to your freshly bookmarked site.

P.S. Can I have some money? If I hang out here too much, I'm going to need lots!! I'm already scheming my customization plan (sigh)!
