First of all, welcome to the forum!

Are you looking for any specific information? This thread alone answers a lot of general information but I know scanning through 29 pages isn't the most efficient way to find answers.

Feel free to ask general questions in this thread, but for everything else, you should utilize the search function. Google, a lot of times, will route you to the right thread in this forum also. "Stickied" threads are a good reference too.

I have an intermittent engine check light, it started to show up when the cold weather hit the east coast but stays on for a few days and then goes away for a few. Any ideas what could it be??

Sup Guys New 96lx owner. Had a 2002 wrx but sold it. Got this little bad boy now as a dd. Im looking to upgrade the headers and full exhaust but only seem to find for RS models. Will they work on the lx? My only mods are a K&N drop in filter, Front strut bar and a fart can that came with the car.

Your LX most likely has single port exhaust heads so, no, RS headers will not work but there are single port headers floating around.

Hi All!

I am aspiring to become a Subaru owner one of these days. I have spent about the last 8 months doing a beginner project by making a USDM Mirage look like an EVO IV and adding some light performance upgrades. I have sunk enough money into that pit and leaving it with stock engine as a daily driver.

I am hoping to find a solid 98-01 GC car as a project.

If it's a regular impresa L, its gonna be a single cam 2.2L. But if its a impresa rs it's gonna be a single cam 2.5L.
