Yo lemme get your headlights. I'll trade you straight across :P mine are too chrome.

The fact you called it pax prime instead of west makes me hope the best for you my friend. Good luck on the search!

I got some rear fender ‘spats’ too for $40 that add a lot of style to the back. I love the lip and it was easy to install and it was delivered in a few days. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F372187075940

That doesnt look like the same lip to me.. it might just be crappy Ebay photos but I also really like your front lip. That's definately the same one?

Original Poster2 points · 13 days ago

Maybe it is different. This is the link from my email confirmation.

Yeah, I decided to wait a while too. Im almost to 10k miles now and have become too frustrated by the rev hang and awful throttle mapping.
And more power of course ;)

Honestly. I'm happy with how it is stock for now.. with the exception of rev hang. It makes me feel like I dont know how to drive manual and i hate it.

Same

I wish I could have a new wheels Wednesday:( but currently I'm participating in empty wallet wednesday.

I mean, I eat spaghetti like every day. Easy to save when I spend $30 on groceries haha. The day will come though

Haha I like your priorities

Wait how are your headlights like that from the factory? Mine are extremely chrome and I hate them

This just reminds me how badly I need to get my headlights done. The stock look is just .... too much shiny. Lol looks good man.

Also which front lip is that ?

Still better than Blair Walsh

A little history on this beastie.

Previous set-up upon purchase...($3500ish): -45000mi EJ205 (suuuuure Craigslist seller) -TBE (no name) -Uppipe (no name) -“stage 2” home tune -AF Learning at 11% to max 14.5% -Vac and exhaust leaks errrrrwhere.

Set-up now:

-Cobb OTS Stage 2+ebcs

-All pre-turbo exhaust gaskets replaced...holy moly thems is a pain to seal properly. Always get new gaskets. ——Get an exhaust shop to do it...you’ll have much less stress. I finally lost it and slapped on some RTV Ultra Copper...been going for 4months now, no issues. Manifold and collector heat shields removed and wrapped. ——pre-02 sensor exhaust leaks in EJs can skew AFR to falsely read lean, ECU compensates by adding fuel, but it doesn’t correct the issue. ECU continues to compensate and AF Learning spikes positive.

-Cobb EBCS. ——Boost is super smooth compared to stock.

-Every single vacuum line and rubber/silicone connection replaced. ——Vacuum leaks, even small ones, pre turbo can cause unmetered air to enter the system. AF Learning goes up. Common issues are tears in stock turbo inlets (at the turbo). Stock vac lines at notorious for dry rot cracks. Mine had that, rotted turbo inlet, and super small cracks right at the MAF housing. ——Post turbo, large leaks can cause you to lose boost (mine whistled and whined past 8psi). ECU sees this as a loss of metered air and shows as negative AF Learning. AF Learning can increase due to unmetered air entering when boost cuts off or at idle. ——Small leaks might not be noticeable. Get a leak/smoke test done!!!

-New (to me) JDM TMIC. >>>Careful...the metal is soft and over torquing the bolts on the bypass will cause them to strip. Always get a new gasket. 11-12lbs torque...I think?

-Fenders rolled and pulled...I used a hammer and a metal pipe cuz I don’t care about the body...just wanted to fit yuuuuge tires.

-Front and rear strut bar (I know, F isn’t needed...but it looks cool).

-AEM Wideband. I like to look at it sometimes and pretend I’m Scotty...IM GIVING HER ALL SHES GOT CAPTAIN!

-Godspeed coilovers...I know...but I ain’t gonna drop a grip of Benjamin’s (that’s what the cool kids say, right?) on this whip. WAI.

-Some generic Deep Dish wheels to round off that shittycarmods look. Also stickers...so many stickers. +5 hp and Charisma.

-about 12 busted knuckles, 4 metal splinters, fiberglass in my leg and scalp, and lots of sweat. Worth it!

There is still a ton of work to be done, but I’m thinking I might just run it til major issues can’t be fixed and give her the good ol’ STI switcharooni.

Please correct any info I might have gotten wrong, I’m just going off memory, biased research, and amateur wrenching experience.

I can't say im comfortable yet haha, red lights are the most nerve wracking things ever. I talked to a coworker today and I think my issue is im not giving enough gas at takeoff so i cant wait to practice some more. Once you get going it's a blast though, don't even need to go fast, the grip is honestly scary impressive!

The hill assist is what throws me off. I've been driving manuals since I got my license but I still look like a noob in my wrx sometimes. Although I've only had it a little over a week lol

I got the same car a week ago as well! I cant see your recaro seats though. Did you not get those with the package ? Or am I just blind?

Original Poster2 points · 1 month ago

If it was on Tuesday then our cars have the same birthday. Yes it has the recaros. Just curious, did yours come with the sti shift knob? Some people on YouTube doesn’t have it but I got it for some reason.

see more

Yeah I have the shift knob also and the "short shifter" but on the window sticker it had its own area for price so not sure if it was included or not with the package

I dont think I have ever agreed with a post more than I have today.

Just got mine on Monday. I even woke up in the middle of the night and looked outside at it and went back to bed. That's next level shit right there.

I am in the same boat. I’ve been wanting a WRX for years and only this past year I am actually able to get it. I’m torn because I want the features of a 2018 Mazda 6, but the enjoyment of the WRX. I have also never owned a manual and want a manual. It’s a struggle over here pal!

The clutch in these are pretty soft but I definitely think it wouldn't be too bad to learn manual with a wrx. But if you want to learn you better hurry. Every year manuals are becoming harder and harder to find :)
