    Looks sweet.

    With a DP it is likely your ECU has been flashed.

    Can you tell what PSI boost you are hitting?

    And WELCOME

    the car has the optional subaru boost gauge on the column. Its not in psi. I think mpa? I'll need to do some math to figure out the boost psi.

    I'm stoked!

    I loved having San Remo Red when I had my Rex. The CV boot isnt hard. If it has been torn for a while, I would just buy a complete axle. Remanufactured can be found for about $70. Once you get the wheels off, and the rotors out of the way, itll just pop out of the tranny. May lose a little bit of fluid. Just stick the new one in, and put it all back together.

    Brent and I did the front passenger one on my leggy a few months ago, and it only took an hour or so. That included beverage drinking. Haha.

    Nice wagon! as for the key fob, I bought one off ebay. Look in your manual it will tell you how to program it. Really easy im on my phone or I would even give you a link how to do it.

    I just grabbed one off ebay (key fob)

    I didn't know they were programmable. Thanks for the heads up!

    They pop out, after you punch out the roll pin.

    and programming the fob:

    Program remotes: works on Alpine system.

    Unlock all doors, foot on brake, all doors closed. Cycle key quickly but carefully on-off appr 10 times until the car honks one time.
    Do not turn the key far enough to start the car, just to the 'on' position so the dashboard lights up.

    When the horn honks, open and close the driver's door, press any remote button and that's it.
    Program another remote? Quickly open and close the driver's door again and push a button on the 2nd remote. That's it.

    When you're done, remove the key and the horn should honk 3 times. You're all set.
    Sometime it takes more than 10 on-offs to set program mode. Open/close the door, lock/unlock etc, wait 10 minutes, then try again.

    Nice lookin' car...it's always good to see a red Subie. Paint your side skirts! What are your plans for the car? Do you have any?
