Does this has CVT?

The ride is not very compliant.  Do the regular services and they are reliable.  Not as fast as the other cars.

Did you get this sorted?

I still sometimes think it would be nice if it had one then it would flow air even when sitting in traffic

Install space is also an issue .

And then when you hit 160 kph. it will become a restriction. 

Push fans are more of a restriction that pulling fans. (shroud etc)

Inter-cooler spray works better for the times when you get heat soak.

The TMIC in a subaru is a cheaper fix to the problem of heat.  FMIC is the better solution.

I also highly recommend the MRT book "Training WRX"

Brake upgrades are always a controversial subject.

Without a doubt,  you can improve the feel of the OEM brake system,

-better fluid,
-better pads,
-better discs,
-braided hoses.

And this will also get you more consistent stopping , when doing repeated stops(track days).

But if you want to stop in a shorter distance on the road, you need

better leverage

-better tires
-better suspension
-and bigger discs and pads.
-And on most WRX's  - bigger brake booster.

1. 700 rpm is too low for that model.
2.  I assume you have the lamco gauge.   at idle, vaccum at sea level should be -0,7.  I think you have a leak.  Check OEM intake hose.

press the accelerator slightly, if the shake goes away at higher IDLE speeds, then you have a clue.  Not you can adjust idles speeds with software

2015 STI scoob is slower than the 2014 STI.  yet the weight is almost the same.  And the 2015 STI is much stiffer.

I have seen 15 yr old scoobies with no rust.

I have yet to see one with rust.

Post mods and model year.

It appears you have an after market decat, from the info you posted.

Once you get onto the freeway,  the closed loop operation comes into effect. After a certain time, the car initiates the emissions check.

It never happens in city driving.

They quoted you R2000.  This is most likely rear sensor.  The front on mine cost way more than 2800.

You could just wire it out. Or you can get a denso identical part from ebay for silly money.  You would however need to solder the wires to the OEM sensor plug.

Stay away from Mechanical oil pressure/temp gauges.  Too many failure points.

You could use a mechanical boost gauges. 

I have electronic oil temp.pressure gauges. Working for over 10 years.

SPA dual gauges in one housing.  Expensive thou.

If you lower the car.  These then tend to suck up water in rains = hydroloc.  

Does not happen often.  But I have seen one stripped engine, bent rods.

BTW I would hold off buying the coilovers and induction kit, aquamist.

Forged engine building suffers from extreme budget creep.  I highly recommend a new oil pump and heat interchanger.  Do not reuse the old one.

Get your car running.  Focus all the money on the parts that goes into the engine.  Once it is running buy the other bits as they are bolt on.
