I’ve got a brand new AEM DryFlow Air Filter for Subaru models.  This will work on 2008-2015 Subaru WRX / 2008-2015 STI).

About this product (pulled from RallySportDirect):
AEM Dryflow Air Filters are washable synthetic air filters designed for an optimum combination of air flow, filtration, and performance. AEM Dryflow filters use an innovative high performance oil-free filtration material that allows easy cleaning, durable service, and excellent filtration.

I bought this then changed my mind to go Cobb’s Stage 1 + their SF intake.

$50 takes it. Located in GTA!

WRX S4, not quite as awesome but…

WRX S4Japan has released an upgrade to the standard 2015 WRX and named it WRX S4.

One of its biggest upgrade is its power. From a 2.0-liter engine rated at 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque to a whopping 296 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

There’s some body style and technology upgrades as well. I think it looks quite good!

Did you miss Toronto Subaru Club’s Hyper Meet 2014? I did.

Check out this video for a glimpse into this fun-filled family event! On August 17th, hundreds of Subaru enthusiasts (and their Subies) made their way to Subaru Canada’s headquarters to join in on all the excitement of this year’s TSC Hyper Meet. Some of the attractions included a show and shine event, R/C car racing, interactive games, live music and many activities for children.

Each year, the Hyper Meet raises funds for Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH), and this year over 600 attendees raised $18,000. Subaru Canada applauded this charitable effort by matching the donation dollar for dollar, allowing us to contribute $36,000 to RMH.

Everyone is always welcome, so if you like what you see, check back with us early August 2015 at http://www.facebook.com/SubaruCanada for dates and details of next year’s event!

2015 STI Rear Differential Leak

Nov, 2014: Scroll down for update on Gear Oil Leaking from Rear Differential Cover

Now this can’t be good. My 2015 STI is only 5 months old and the rear diff is already experiencing a leak. Thanks to Jason @ Apex Auto for catching this and letting me know right away. It’s not a biggie since this will definitely be covered under warranty.

Subaru’s fix…torque all bolts, ‘complete’ re-test of system = all  systems OK.

Let’s hope this last.

UPDATE: Nov, 2014.

The leak was not fixed and it is now a known issue across many of the new STI’s thus a TSB has been issued. I brought the car back for inspection and the parts were ordered. Took about a full day to fix. Monitored it for about 2 weeks now and no leak!

Service Bulletin # 03-74-14

This bulletin provides a repair procedure to address a customer concern of a gear oil leak from the rear differential cover area. As with any diagnosis, begin by confirming the source of the leak. This will involve thoroughly cleaning the contaminated surfaces of all residual gear oil and the application of a suitable leak tracing developer such as Castle® Leak Tracer Powder™ or similar. If the source of the leak is confirmed as the breather vent assembly which is pressed into the aluminum rear differential cover, both the cover and the breather vent will require replacement. In some cases, you may find the breather vent is visibly not fully or evenly seated while in others, it may appear flush. Proper seating of the breather vent is not the criteria for replacement of the vent and cover. Rely on the results of your leak tracing to determine what repair is required. While this bulletin addresses a specific possible leak source, if your diagnosis leads to a different source, repair that condition by following the applicable Service Manual information.
