    GOOD KILLLLLLL!!!!!

    Brian, your car will be just fine. Wes's however will need a good shampooing...

    I presume you got a BFBOV and BFCC, otherwise he would have 0w3ned you...

    You seem real interested in taking care of you first car, which is very admirable. Keep the oil changed, rotate the tires, keep it clean inside and out, and don't crash it... it will last a long time. And don't worry about revving that puppy.

    Good Job, you beat him like a red headed stepchild. I'm proud of you? I'm glad you showed your buddy what a real car can do. Usually when I race I redline it, but just yesterday I was kinda thinking the way you are, peak boost is around 4K and when you shift at redline your around 5K when the rev's drop back down. I dunno, peak horsepower is at 6k, it's all a matter of opinion I guess. I sure there's 10 million threads out there on the subject. Anywayz, I'm glad I can now sleep at night knowing there isn't some guy out there in a stock grand am that thinks he can beat me Welcome to the club, congrats

    Good job! Don't worry about the car. As long as you keep all fluids clean, you'll be fine...

    I just wanted to share...

    When I first got my WRX I was brand new to AWD/Turbo cars with a manual. I was also not used to revving so high on the tach. Ironically I came from a 99 black Grand Am GT to the WRX.

    I could not drive for ****. As a test I raced my girlfriends Saturn SL2.. and sigh... lost. Like you, with a little help from my friends on the boards I raced her again.

    I layed some serious smack down on her. lol

    Come on you guys,
    there is no suck thing as Boost FLUID. It is called boost OIL. If you dont keep a proper mix of 10W30 and 5W30 BOOST OIL in your boost OIL TURBO CATCH-CAN, you will destroy the turbo on any revs above 6000RPM's. The catch can is VERY hard to find in the car.
    Consult other forums and you will find more about Boost OIL.

    Boost Oil? I have never heard of anything so stupid in my life. You know it isn't cool to come in here and make up parts to a car to mess with newbs like yourself. That is just stupid.


    Boost OIL.. retarded.

    back when i had my car, and about 500miles on it, i made an aggresive lane switch to prevent rearending this red Grandam with chrome wheels. Anyways he lines up with me at the next light. I casually take off, go for second at like 2k, and he goes by, WOT, i cant go back to first cause, we all know how those damn synchros work... oh well, i stay in it, hit boost, cut 4 cars into 1, hit third, and waved bye-bye to him. Also consider that if you miss any shifts in a stock Rex, almost anything on the road has a shot to beat you. If you dont shift at 7, youll be out of the torque curve in second, and youll be hurting your car's ability to pull the next gear.

    Needless to say ive put 18K miles of drivin on the WRX, and your driving will probably get alot better, as did mine.

    Boost oil.. Boost fluid, it's all the same thing, just make sure your Catch Can is big enough or your BFBOV will have some serious issues with overflow. Since I switched over to the Motul, my stock Resevior/Catch Can couldn't handle the extra flow. I just got my Sti Res/CC today so I'm looking good. I've also got steel braided hoses on the way to handle the extra pressure. The only thing I'm worried about now is my MAF and EBC overheating, need liquid cooling. I wondering if I can run another hose off my BFBOV to accomplish this, any ideas?

    P.S. My igniters are running hot too?

    Look where you live...No wonder you are running hot. An extra shot of boost fluid from a canister mounted in a cooler area of the car will do the trick. Mounting in the trunk usually helps and the switch hookup is easy into one of those empty slots by the foglight switch!! Good luck
