you might have to turn up the volume a little higher to hear the weird "rubber band" noise. I only hear it in 1st/2nd gear, and when I switch to Drive or Reverse (with the foot on the brake pedal). Also is temperature dependent. only happens under 30 degrees Fahrenheit.


side note.. i have the infamous '08 5eat stall issue but the APv2 has the +/-300RPM during idle adjustment option so that helped. :spin:


EDIT: i stalled even with the APv2 fix... thinking about reverting back to stock grrr..... vehicle has a 5yr/100k warranty and im 2yrs with 40k.

i'm just afraid of the subaru dealership voiding my warranty becuz of my mods. even tho i don't think my mods would be making this noise.


trans cooler, fmic, k&n intake, perrin crank pulley, erz catted dp, perrin mid y, prodrive mufflers.


i'm going down to RI to see GTTuner this sunday. hopefully it's some quick fix. *crosses fingers* or else, ill be scrounging up some stock pieces....
