A quick reminder to check your plugs.

A reminder to those buying second hand Subarus. Dont forget to check those plugs. Too many misunderstandings and misinformed mechanics will put the wrong plug in your newly acquired car. Running you of efficiency and power. Especially the throttle response before the boost hits will be affected.

Of course websites and dealerships have a recommended plug. But do your research and make sure!!
