Thanks for the insight!

Two of my clients are auto shops, both with really good reputations in the area. I'm sure I can barter some time with one of them to do a boost leak test :D

Every single post I see on this issue points to one of the hoses not being secure, broken, etc, etc... All hose related... But the dam dealership says all the hoses are tight...

"Shhhh" sound just started happening?

Hi all,

A couple weeks ago I started hearing a hissing, or shhhhh, sound as the turbo starts to kick in around 3K. Sometimes it's worse than others, and I've tried a lot of things to see if I can...

Quick Log Analysis?

Hi all,

I'm a noob and just got my Cobb AP and was wondering if anyone would help me by very briefly looking at a few log files I made. I followed the directions on the Cobb website: 3rd gear,...

I just ordered an AP, and he...

Than you all for the replies, very helpful.

It's not a custom map for an AP, it's just a tune. Also, it's a road tune, not a dyno.

It sounds like I'd need a tune whether I use an AP or not due...

Custom Tune or Cobb AP

Hey all,

I debated whether to put this in the Engine Management/Tuning section, or here in the Noob section... Since I am a total noob, here we are.

Awesome, thanks!

It looks to me like Eibach might be a good way to go. Is a 1" drop on this car pretty aggressive? Little worried about dropping it too much, my apt complex has mountains for speed...

First off, I'm a proud new owner of a 2013 WRX hatchback, purchased it over the weekend (5/11).

This may or may not be a problem, but it seems like the car pulls pretty good until about...
