View Thread: cool--found a dealer for the future...


scubie02
Found a subaru dealer in PA that carries the TurboXS systems and does all the installation, etc. So when my warranty is up anyway in another year or so I can just take it down there and have a package put on by someone who knows what they are doing 9presumably with some sort of warranty on that work anyway). Maybe by then I'll have some money to do it...hehehe

I like the idea of the two stage boost controller TurboXS has that you can just switch back and forth from one boost setting to another boost setting from inside the car--that'd be cool!

That is pretty sweet. So you can conserve fuel on the lower setting, then flip a switch, and it's race time.

So I take it you don't want a mustang then.

scubie02
Yeah, apparently you can even flip it to the race setting while already under boost. So you drive around most of the time on the normal setting, then flip the switch when the need arises--very cool.

I like mustangs fine too, but I really like my wrx better, I think. In a perfect world I'd have the money for both so I could drive whichever one my mood pointed me toward that day. Ah well. Some day maybe I'll have the money for all the different types of cars I want...a convertible for the summer, something more luxurious for trips, an old muscle car for nostalgia...while still keeping a subie for versatile fun and something 4wd for abuse. I'll just have to accumulate them little by little I guess (and browbeat whatever future wie to make her think she likes some car I want her to have hehe)

That sounds really cool scubes. So would you have the boost setting to lower than stock on one setting and higher on the other? Or stock/insane?

scubie02
I'd probably do stock/insane, but I suppose you could do it anyway you wanted... :pd:

Its even got the little red cover to flip up...like hitting the afterburner or something hehehe

scubie02
Even with just the cheap $79 boost controller that they sell its supposed to put the wrx into the 13's (not that hard really since I have seen people get 14 evens with stock wrx's). But you can't turn the boost up all that much w/out having aftermarket or STi injectors put in too I think. Its insane what you can do with them w/ relatively little money. Even the most expensive package they sell is $4k and change--of course you'd have installation costs too...

Sia Bani
Yup, turbo'd stock cars are great to have because of the ease in modding it.


The switch is awesome.

I would think a switch like that might attract a little too much attention. I'd just have a subtle little switch. Plus think if a Valet or someone get's in your car, the first thing they are gonna see is a huge red flippy dealy. And speaking as a valet, I'd def play with the thing to see what it does.

Think of the fun you could have when the new girl says "what's this RED switch for...?" and you're like "GEEZ don't touch THAT!!!!"

hehehe

Sia Bani
Exactly why most of us never valet!

eric rxb
I think that I'm the reason that no one SHOULD valet. :naughty:

hehehe

haha totally.

You'd be like, "I'm not too sure you want to do that...." and she'll do it, and then you'd have an excuse to drive insanely fast and scare the shit out of her. HAHa

I'd put it on the left of the steering wheels using one of the blank slots--it wouldn't be super visible to cops or anything.

And this is going to be a shock, but VALETS aren't something one has to worry about too much where I live...if someone gets into your car at a restaurant and starts driving it you open fire...hehehe

eric rxb
Ah... the joys of living in the boonies

Sia Bani
Nooo! You can't hide it. It totally ruins the "make the chick's nipples hard" factor!

You have to have it in the center somewhere, and forget about the cops. They won't notice it.

Yeah, you could punch it and pretend you couldn't control it...

"GGGGEEEEEYYYYAAAAAHHHHHH...I TOLD you NOT to touch it...!"
(you could work at holding your face back in a manner as if the G's were making you lose control...hehehe)

true, true--you KNOW it would KILL them in terms of curiosity if it was right there but you wouldn't let them "play" with it...you could do some heavy bargaining there...

Sia Bani
Definately. Right next to the shifter man...or even closer to the lady. Maybe way over on the right, in front of the glove box...that would make them suffer..haha.

That is hysterical. I'd love to have a switch like that even if it didn't do anything. You could have so much fun with your passengers.

I had a friend that spooked his little brother by changing his digital speedo over to KM/hr while they were driving.
