Will have to definitely get some exhaust vids up here in a bit. Have some UEL headers and catless J pipe coming on from Inferno Fabs.

Been a long while since I've posted on here. Just an update more or less, I have a 2017 crosstrek that I offroad a bit (@mighty_crosstrek on instagram)

Damages sustained so far:
- March I busted a bumper tab on the front bumper, currently wood glued in place.
- Replaced 4 bumper brackets during that

- In May I ripped off part of the driver side front fender liner. Drove through a water crossing at speed to not get stuck, water went in the opening in the bumper and forced its way out the fender liner

- October when I hit 10k miles, I ripped my rear bumper clean off on a branch that my tire kicked up, this broke the bumper bracket on the driver side, and I can't take my bumper off for the life of me to replace it so it is screwed in
- As well got a small crack under the passenger side tail light, only a cm or so

- Small snowstorm in November, I was pulling into my driveway which had a small snow bank after being plowed. Snow caught my passenger side fender liner and ripped that one half off

- 2 weeks ago I was exploring some dirt roads covered in snow with a foz, I got stuck and had him tow me out. Turns out the factory tow hook is trash, cause it bent 30 degrees, and cracked my front bumper.

Other than that, the car has been flawless, haha

haha nice ^^ cant really be too mad about it as its not purpose on which that car was designed for haha. Was curious to know what your fuel economy has been? also anyone running a newer subaru wrx or wrx sti? also curious about mileage and range. I am having withdrawals, the f150 is a wicked bike unit as I have a canopy and can just sleep in it and do cool bike trips but I miss a manual and boost baaaaad

If this motor ever dies I’ll give it a EJ22 NA so I can keep the dual range 5spd transmission
