I recently purchased a 2002 Impreza WRX sedan and I need some advice. I bought the car because I know they can be VERY fun but also because I live where we get a lot of snow and my rear wheel drive car doesn't do well in it.
Basically I need to know if I need to tune my car if I just add and Up pipe. I did a little research and I thought I read that the stock one has a catalytic converter and sometimes they ruin the turbo. I am completely stock and I want to upgrade the car power wise down the road but right now I need to get through the winter. I have never owned a car with a turbo until this (Im only 23).
I tried to search this info but I wanted to get a for sure answer because most of the things I read were being done to cars with performance parts. My car is a 2002, 90k miles and is an automatic ( I know, i know, should have got a manual) but for the price and miles I couldn't pass this one up.
I am sorry if this has been asked a million times; please feel free to correct me if I am completely incorrect as I am new to all of this.
