That timed results shows the only closest rival to the STi (3:10.5)...of course the Evo X SE (3:10.6)! and nothing else. "It is one or the other..period"

Default Re: My 2015 STi Launch Ed.

What do you think of the quality of the STI sports oil filter over the Black Tokyo Roki Filter. I know you cant really tell by just looking at it but was wondering your initial impression. I cant find specs on it. Same size, internals look better? Also I noticed you have the STI coolant cap(1.3 bar) on the coolant resevoir. Any problems noticed with this as the original cap is supposed to be lower pressure(1.1 bar) than the radiator cap(1.3 bar) to allow the venting and recirculation to the turbo charger to effectively work after shutdown. If you shut the car off hot and listening to the turbo area you should hear the coolant sloshing around?

STi sports filter and Black OE Tokyo-Roki Oil filter looks similar in size:



STi Sports filter is much better due to the filter media is held by screen mesh as you can see in this shot:



Subaru OE Tokyo-Roki




STi Sports Oil Filter for EJ $21.67
https://www.japanparts.com/parts/detail/10210

Subaru OEM Tokyo-Roki Oil Filter $19.93
https://www.japanparts.com/parts/detail/18128

Both Filters are excellent, pick your choice.

I have two STi radiator caps one in the turbo reservoir and one in the radiator, performs ok to me and no issues. I dont hear any sound on my radiator/turbo area after shuting off the engine.

Hope this helps.

Gloss black it looks like? I am looking at the side badges from subispeed for my WRB. I was torn between gloss and flat black, both with red lettering. Leaning towards matt black but still not sure. Looks good.

Thanks! It is gloss black, matt black looks good too with red sti letters. I was suppose to get the oe badge from the hyper blue series today, i only got a part number but not yet available in my local subie parts store.
