Haha! My WRX hasn't gotten much action this winter. I keep it in the garage, haha! At the moment I have 2 other Subaru beaters... going to be getting rid of one very soon because 3 Subaru wagons is a bit crazy.

The GTWorx suspension is by far my favorite mod. The handling on my car is unreal right now. I also have the Rallitek front and rear sway bar kit with their endlinks. I love the extra power, but this suspension makes the car.

I bet! Suspension is def my next round of mods. I'm sure I'll be seeing you around once the spring hits. I have a work truck from my co for a daily driver too so I just tear that up instead of the brand new Rex.

I am a 2013 owner as well and from what I could find, you are correct the "break in" period is 1k miles. But It says the first oil change isn't required until 7.5k miles. Subaru told me this as well. 2013 Subaru maintenance schedule and new car break-in period

I personally waited until 3k miles until I started adding parts on the car, but again that is just my preference... If nothing else you could add the parts and drive around for a bit before you get the tune.
Hope this helps.

Yeah I read the same. Only reasoning for me doing an OC is because of the dyno pro-tune. Prob would've waited the same a you did. I'm just glad to get some parts on there lol! A thousand miles never took so long to come.

HAHA I need to update my own mod list. I put that together before I got my car. It was my "wish list" I still want them but I am too busy trying to get money together for other mods.
All I have right now is a blue cobb shift knob, a cobb catback exhaust. and some weathertech floor mats (if you can say that the fist and the last are a mod) lol

The reason to wait until you change the oil. Is to flush out any little shavings from the brand new motor out. There has to be some little wear in on the metal of a brand new engine...even to the smallest degree that little metal flakes could possibly be floating around in there.
