Hey guys.....whats up? Finally found the new site.

This has been a weird winter, no rain, no SF.com, temps in the high 70's......I thought the end was near!! :lol:
NorCal stole all of your rain... we thought the end was near too! :p
Can't they find a way to gather up all that water and send it to the areas it is needed... ie Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma? You know, places that are having and going to continue to have bad wild fires now.

all i got to say is i used to work at camelack subaru... owner and his son are cool guys and the techs are as well but thats about it the rest of them are jerkoffs.
Like it old roo the parts guy blows donkey donnie has no idea about parts and subarus... he just knows he sells stuff and people buy them. THE SERVICE ADVISOR WILL IS AN donkey i was salesman there and i had my sti checked out and he gave me a hard time about my mods and them fixing my car wanted to charge me full hourly rate and cancel my warranty..
A dealers service manager can't "cancel" your warranty. The warranty is something that offered by Subaru, not the dealer. The district rep is the only one that can deny warranty and even then, it is up to SOA to prove that the modifications caused the failure of the components in question.


HondaSlayer... I would look into Power Subaru. Also, the area SOA rep's name is Mike Gobin..I have his card at work and I would be happy to PM you his contact info if you think it would help. Power has hosted two subaru meets within the past year and supplied the food and drinks and cleared their lot to allow all the enthusiasts to park their cars for the meet.

Forester went into Power Subaru today to find/fix a fluid leak. Thought it looked like fluid leaked into the plastic sump guard when I took it off for the up/dp install. Kept the sump guard off to be able to go back and check torque on the bolts/nuts after a few heat cycles..and loe and behold there were 3-4" dia. buddles under the car. Looked like they were coming from center diff.

Anyone know how friendly/unfriendly Power is toward mods?

Service guy, Mike, looked at it initially and said he saw fluid on the top of the turbo around the banjo bolt for the oil feed line. I think that was just the remnants of the liquid wrench I used to soak the up/dp bolts/nuts prior to the install. I didn't tell him that though. ;-)

I hope they don't give me any crap about the up/dp. I will have to print off a copy of the legal document detailing warantly denial laws. :)

Hey Virgil,

Any progress on your XT? Are the new wheels on her yet?
Alan... I installed an up/dp and loaded the ap stg2 base map. Putting the auto in "3" and flooring it from a dead stop will result in front wheel spin now! So, if you have any doubts about the power increase w/ the AP for an auto anymore, put them to rest. :)


Put her in nuetral, push on brake pedal, tap gas to get vaccum lock, and then put it in "3", torqe brake to 3k, let foot of the gas, and it really rips out of the hole. Hoping to go to Firebird before it gets too hot and see if I can dip into the low 14's... maybe even a 13.9.

I want a ride!! Hey, let me know when you’re heading to the track. I am planning on going during February, I want to go to Speedworlds Sunday Morning Drags, but will do a Friday night/Sat night drag at Firebird. Keep me informed. Maybe we can get a Forester contingent out.
Anytime you plan on being down in the Chandler area let me know an we can set up a time to meet and you can get a ride. I need to still get a kitchen pass from my wife, but February would be a good time to hit Firebird. Speedworld is better track in regards to traction, but it is a really far drive for us SE Chandler residents. :)
