Is there anything you miss about the WRX? Was it a manual tranny?

Hopefully the Redsport will make you forget about the WRX! No need to add a cobb tuner to this platorm after adding simple boltons, add LDP's and a Catback and you will notice the difference, scratch the intake idea if you were contemplating it, start in the back and make your way forward, adding a heat exchanger after widening your pipes will definitely help for hot areas and avoiding heat soak if you like to do back to back runs. Beautiful car, enjoy it!

Welcome! Some get a bit more out of the car with a JB4. To get the most out of it, you want a custom professional tune. Good advice on the bolt on mods from Phagan above.

I never had a Suburu, but I miss manual transmissions!

The amount of money I had to put into my son's Legacy GT, replacing the turbo and engine that went ****-up, has soured my opinion of Subaru. Didn't seem to faze my son though as he bought a 2019 WRX and then turned around again and traded it in for a 2021 STI. I give him sh1t about the ludicrous wing on the trunk every time I see him.

they are not that fast out of the box.

good amount of room inside.

lots of aftermarket support.

quick and handle great if you know what you are modding.

I will never forget the wrx sti traded in by a young man,,a noisy maze of red tubing,couplers,bov,piping,,all jammed Frankenstein style under this young fiends hood,,Volkswagen beetle sounding snarl of tubing,,piping,,different size hoses everywhere underhood,,I had to drive it,,it did get velocity,,but too many hard Tokyo drifts,,& being an extra for fast and furious films made the wheels seem like they were pointing in different ways,,and the feeling was the car any second would outplode into a slow expanding schematic,,with parts flying away from each other as the driver was also dissambled in the process,,,LOL,,,
