    Impact Wrenches

    Well HD ended up cancelling my order a day early so I never got to pick it up. At the rate that electric motors are progressing, I'm thinking I'll end up with a battery powered one in the not-too-distant future the NEXT time one becomes necessary. Just so much hassle with a compressor, lines...

    Impact Wrenches

    I ended up not needing the impact, but think I'm going to pick it up anyways (HD still has my store-pickup order ready-to-go). On a related note, the bolt in question is re-torqued at ~145 ft-lbs + 180 degrees. What a mother!

    Impact Wrenches

    What's your stance on pneumatic vs. battery impacts? So far, I've gotten away with just manual tools. I've got a few bolts that need to come out in a timely fashion and wife-approval for an upgrade (!!!!). I don't love the idea of pneumatic just because it's more crap to keep around the...

    06 WRX Vs STI rocker panels?

    WRX is different, but not worse. Example (if I did my research correctly): 51449FE060 & 51449FE070 was for WRX 51449FE360 & 51449FE370 was for STI So you can try to google those STI part numbers (double check them). If you cant find both, you can: Buy WRX-style new Go aftermarket for a...

    No sound and smoke coming out of my tail pipes HELP!

    Do you have a check engine light? Do you have any way to get engine logs (like an accessport)? What were you doing when the drop in acceleration happened? How long ago was it tuned?

    Boost Question

    Do you have a code reader and/or getting a CEL? If it's a 2020 & stock, take it to the dealer with the issue.

    Legitimate Buy? URGENT RESPONSE (It May Sell Fast)

    Yeah, it sounds like a scam. Stolen. "Pay me a deposit".. something. No way it was $800, even from a grieving mother.

    Legitimate Buy? URGENT RESPONSE (It May Sell Fast)

    That's @IGOTASTi 's old car. I remember he sold it a while back, but the car's legit, if I'm right.

    I bought a modded 2014 STI what stage is it ?

    I wouldn't touch the tune right now. That's far beyond "stage 3" and its either a) got a great tune on it, or b) has a crappy tune on it. The only thing you can do at this point by erasing the tune is go to "b" above...or possibly put a "limp" tune on it until you get to a protuner. If it...

    What Phone Do You Currently Use?

    I've been using an LG G8 that is in the process of dying, so in the last few days, I've been researching. I'm thinking of picking up a Pixel 3a or OnePlus N100/N200 for $150-200. I'm not a power user and I think those will do fine for me for now.

    Can anyone help identify these weird rims??

    Definitely stock rims, just with a new centercap. If you get a better picture of the logo, you can *try* to do a reverse image search. I tried with just cropping your image, above, and didn't have any luck. It *sorta* looks like an upside-down Motegi logo. Sorry I can't be more help.

    2021 STI Limited/No wing/Manual advice please !!

    Trying to take STI-bias out of the equation... For manual: If it's a must-have, it's a must-have. Figure that out. For suspension: Mods, my man. It's probably a lot cheaper to stick with what you've got than going through a buy/sell transaction on relatively new cars. A few grand for some...

    Best all season tires

    Tires are the ultimate performance consumable. Relatively speaking, the better the grip, the shorter the life--and often higher the cost! You gotta pay to play. But theres also an inverse between summer grip and winter grip. Anything with decent winter traction requires specific treadblocks...
