I am waiting to hear back from the COBB tuning department. I sent them my VIN and a few pics of what they asked for earlier today. They responded right away with a question,
Do I have a adjustable waste gate arm and do I have a manual or auto tranny.
I clarified that i do have a 5 sp. But the Waste gate question i have no clue about that. So i am waiting to hear what they have to say now. But on the COBB Website, The 2008 AP covers all the way to 2013. So your saying that the AP that I have is somehow flawed from the place where it was made. I just wanna make sure I understand what your saying thats all. I wanna install this AP and see what the dynometer says it has for HP just for sh#ts and giggles. I am sure it wont be dead accurate. But if it shows anything above 225 HP then I know there is more to this story. The only other thing thing I could do according to the suburu parts manager is to check the motor serial number, then phone suburu head office and see if they can tell me what motor is in my car.
The suburu parts guy did say that according to the VIN number my turbo part should be a certain part number, And I checked it and it was the same. He clarified that yes it is a 2009, Made sept 2008. Warranty started dec 2008. it is a 2.5 l motor. The turbo matched the same part number. I suppose tomorrow I will see if I can find the Serial number on the motor. Anyone know where that might be located.
Man oh man this is getting very frustrating. Something simple has now opened a can of worms.
