    We'll have to wait until to see a Subaru Legacy STI in the US, but there's a modified Legacy GT up for grabs which should hold you over.

    We do love a modified wagon, and we proper love Krispy's Subaru Legacy GT Wagon. Just look at it! Read More.

    I then cleaned the calipers with brake cleaner and then Eagle One Mag Cleaner. I noticed improvements in my stereo system right away. Only down side is the cost, the MSD unit runs about bucks. One particular reason is that most Subarus have black trim around all the windows, so when the windows are tinted the tint and the trim blend together very well.

    Engine Handling Braking Lighting Miscellaneous. A lot has changed since I first did this site. Some modifications have stayed, others have been swapped.

    This section will now be split. To check out past mods, click here. Current modifications are below. Check out the Tips section for other helpful info. They said the connection terminals will fail before the wires will. I haven't had any problems though. They did add a little better throttle response and a little more power. Modified stock air box - I've since swapped out the funnel filter for the stock air box. There were several reasons for this. Summer of I was experiencing intermittent loss of power and stalling.

    I added some extra brackets to help reduce vibrations. The final draw for me was moving down to Houston. The hot air being sucked from the engine bay was far more detrimental to power gains then the free flowing intake. So I decided to put the stock air box back on. For the modifications of the stock box. I have removed the snorkel assembly in the fender, and added an additional intake tube to the bottom of the air box to aid in the volume of air the engine is able to suck in.

    Overall I'm pretty happy with it. I may tweak it some more and add some velocity stacks to the tubes in the fender. Possible future mod would be to snag a cobb intake and modify it for my car.

When I added mine I also upgraded to the Diamond Subaru coil pack. The Diamond coil packs come standard on the manual transmission equipped cars. They are supposedly able to handle a little more power. Would I do it again, you bet. Only down side is the cost, the MSD unit runs about bucks.

    Here's a little background on this mod. The throttle body has coolant lines that run through the bottom portion of it. They were put in there to keep the throttle body from icing up under certain circumstances.

    Well all you're really doing is heating the air going into the engine, which reduces power. In a hotter climate, you should be pretty safe on doing this modification and not worrying about any icing. If you live in a colder climate, it may not be the wisest thing to do. Some people have toyed around with even putting a bypass hose in there, so during the summer months they can bypass the throttle body, and during the winter they can run coolant through it.

    Al works with the guys at PDM Turbos and his main thing is the electronics side. He's got quite an extensive electronics background. Results, the jury's still out on this one. I had some wires come loose, and since I didn't know how long they were disconnected I don't really have an accurate feel on how well the chip actually works.
