    Alright this is my second build thread now since I "accidentally" deleted my first one. I just got my license about two months ago and bought a 2002 WRX. It had 75,000 miles on it when I got it, many plans for this car so I thought I would create this thread

    Invidia Regular N1 Catback√
    Cobb SF Intake
    Cobb Lightweight Pully (Blue)
    Cobb Tuning Accessport (Normal Wastegate - Stage2 93 Octane Map)√

    Planned Suspension Mods:
    BC Racing Coilovers
    Stoptech Stage 2 Sport Kit

    Planned Exterior Dress-Up:
    Front Underspoiler
    Wingless
    Halo or Projector Headlights
    Grimmspeed Antenna Delete

    Planned Interior/Engine Dress-Up/Safety:
    Prosport Evo Gauges w/Clock Pod
    Hella Supertones
    Perrin Radiator Shroud
    Cobb Short Throw Shifter w/all new bushings
    Cobb Blue Base Shift Knob

    More mods to come

    Special Thanks:

    At :46 it sounds like you are bouncing off a rev limiter, what do you have it set at?
    are you using Cobb or open source?
    Did you paint the wheels yourself, if so what color is that?
    I see you kept the EGT sensor in your uppipe, I think I read that they burn out faster after removing the cat.
    I am jealous of you for getting a WRX right after your license, I had to drive a minivan for a year.
    It sounds great btw.

    Unfourently I wasnt able to get it tuned yet but I was just playing with the throttle it still has the stock rev limit but I am debating on getting it tuned by CBRDSPEEDFACTORY in York Pa or buying a Cobb Tuner

    No tune yet, I wanted to give the stock rims a little better look so I plasti-dipped them black. Yeah I don't know much about the EGT sensor without that cat, and haha yeah i'm lucky lol, thanks

    Your next and immediate priority is to get the car tuned, these cars typically don't do well with mods and no tune...

    I second that.

    and Kody, if your car is stopped and you floor it in neutral, will your car redline? or does it stop at a certain RPM value?

    Why would you not tune the car? Take the parts off the car until you can tune it.

    What parts are we talking about? Of the planned mods only the intake might need a reflash or might not, unknown. Everything else should be OK. Or am I not seeing the parts (on my phone)?

    Zachy, I've always been under the impression that bugeyes are very lenient and don't require tunes for basic stage 2 stuff (even though its recommended) Had this recently changed or am I losing it

    This^

    Only the bug eyes were able to do this, but as soon as you change the intake and bpv it makes them run way too rich. Op just don't drive your car to redline every gear and you should be fine till you find a tune. I'd find someone close to open source tune it

    Uppipe, downpipe, catback, and intake.

    Wouldn't you need to tune with all that?
