    4 wonderful years with my brz with zero problems up until recently after taking it in for a oil change. I've noticed that my car sounds a lot louder than usual. It noticeably gets louder while cruising on the freeway, but can't pinpoint the origin of what may be causing it to sound louder. It...

    Anyone experiencing a rattling noise around 2800 RPMs that sounds like knocking or detonation? It occurs under light load when I mash on the gas quickly. I had a dealership recommend switching to a top tier gas (Exxon, Shell, etc.) for a few tankfuls but haven't seen any improvement.

    I recently received a Perrin filter (CAI filter, not the panel filter) from a family member that didn't know that there was more to replace to be able to install it. So, I got to thinking of ways to use this filter with little or no modification to the stock intake system, given how efficient...

    Hello- I will be picking up my new '14 BRZ Limited in a couple of weeks. Would like to disable sound generator with minimal effort- Could I just plug the hole under carpet in passenger's footwell using a 7/8" nylon plug?

    This mod is well worth doing if you want a quieter cabin. I also prefer to hear the actual engine sound, not the rattly plastic sound created by this bizarre component. After trying unsuccessfully to plug the cabin fitting which is loose fitted into the firewall grommet I became somewhat...

    I am looking to remove the noise generator as I find the engine sound buzzy and not pleasant, IMO. For those who have deleted it, how noticeable is the difference in sound? Is it much less buzzy? I'll probably get the Perrin inlet hose in red to add a color to the engine bay but at $140 or so...

    Hey guys i wanted to get rid of my sound tube cause it was really annoying on the freeway as i touched the accelerator. So instead of plugging it up or anything like that i simply taped it with some sort of foil that i found at my house. It's fairly sticky and not as thin as it looks. I just...

    Hello there, I don't have a BRZ of my own yet... but will be getting the 2014 regardless of the availability of STI version. Currently driving a 2010 Honda Accord EX Sedan but my father's lease is up this May and he wants to take my car instead of renewing his lease, so I thought I should buy a...

    Going to be interesting to see how the Subaru BRZ does in the LL1 category vs the Fiat 500 Abarth, Ford Focus ST, and Genesis 3.8 R Spec. It's even more interesting to see how the LL1 cars compare to the LL2 cars.

    4,000 miles in and the car is in storage. I have loved every minute with it. Except in the last few weeks I started to get really annoyed with the exhaust sound. I find it's note to be "wanna be" and too much like a lawn mower. How much of this noise is real versus made up with the...
  13. Subaru BRZ Problems, Recalls and Troubleshooting
    I took my BRZ in to get the oil changed last week and alerted the head mechanic about the engine noise (crickets) and transmission rattle I experience. He just gave me a call and told me that he has parts on order to fix the engine noise issue. He explained that it is related to a plunger...

    Engine whistle / "cricket" sound between 800rpm-1400rpm. Any ideas/concerns? I'm not sure if it's due to the recent humidity...but is anyone else hearing this out of their engine? It literally sounds like a cricket chirping, or an air whistle. It sounds too clean to be anything but air. I'll...
