Finally got a Subaru after many years of wanting one. In December of 2011 I had 10,000 dollars to spend on a car of my choice so for 8500 I picked up my Stock 02 WRX with 122,000 miles on it.
Initial Mods within the first few weeks were
Invidia Up pipe
Invidia Bellmouth catted Downpipe
COBB SF Intake
Really crappy video of final DYNO tuning pull.
Tuned by Randy at National Speed INC 247 HP to the wheels. I will post Dyno sheets.
Giving the Engine bay a rest I attacked the Driveline and suspension next.
First Added Kartboy front and rear Shifter Bushings. I was hooked.
Next I replaced the transmission Mount with the Group N Mount and TIC crossmember Bushings
Next i added Group N Pitch Stop Mount (Its crap and i will be swapping it for something beefier)
Only future plans at this point is a PnP and ceramic coated Blouch TD05H Turbo, Fuel Pump, Injectors and Process West TMIC w/ splitter. Wheels and Tires, painted Side Skirts, Headlights, tint, Clutch and Flywheel and various suspension upgrades.

I have heard that from other people too. Is it just because its ridiculously loud?
No it's because it's the wrong thing for our cars. BPV is the way to go
Here you go!

Thanks guys. I got a good start on her. trying to build to be a nice all around car for a DD and some track days and autocrosses just for fun.
she is on hold for now. having some expensive motor issues. just had to drop 2 grand to have the motor rebuilt
i had almost the same one! had some headgasket issues but other than that i love that model
Thats what just happened to me. I had an external head gasket leak. so i went ahead and replaced head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, rocker gaskets, 4 new spark plugs, and the power steering rack and pinion boots. cost me 2000 bucks!
