    What I take away from this is that you're posting it at an exceedingly high price to see if anyone bites, and will then try and flip it likely for profit.

    He originally posted it at around $14k on MNSubiez then upped the price. People called him out on it, but no response on the price jump yet.

    Good to know...

    Also, just to be super extra ultra clear: You're saying you made a massive change to the intake tract, did not tune for it, and are using it as a daily driver. Correct?

    That's a super nice car. Unfortunately mods almost never add value.

    You were asking for a Moderator in the Shoutbox, I'm guessing it's because of this cluster**** of a sales thread?

    Hence why ignored the negative feedback. Probably not the appropriate site to advertise my listing.

    The site isn't the problem, it's your listing.

    More specifically, the price.

    Mods don't add value, especially when you're changing a major intake part and haven't been tuned for it.

    MN tax/tax season coming :bounce: but on a serious note, just to clarify what i may have said. ive switched out to the GS tmic, which does not require a tune but will help with more airflow. Hence why I said it could use a retune and turn up the boost.

    Great. And you've got the car listed for almost 5k above clean dealer retail why?

    'modified to fit' suspension is also super confidence-inspiring.

    also, why does the engine bay and underside of the hood look like a different color than the exterior?

    On that intercooler. I don't see one listed on Grimmspeeds website for the FXT. Is it one for an STI?

    Technically, a larger intercooler won't effect the tune, but you won't gain anything from it without a tune either.
    Carry on with the price flaming...back to my corner :coffee:

    As for the intercooler-mechanically, any part for the WRX *should* go for the FXT, it's the same engine, you just might run into some fitment issues, i.e. they (GrimmSpeed) told me when i went in there that i'd need an aftermarket splitter because they don't make one specific for the FXT, clearance on the hood's a little bit different.

    I figured this was the case. Without the correct splitter though the larger intercooler does lose alot of its effectiveness.

    Its significantly more than what it should list for, I think effective already went out the window.

    I'm sure some vapebro will see it on mnsubiz or something and fall in love and have to have it

    I have a feeling this one might get archived like the last great Forester for sale thread.
