I just bought an 02 wrx with 78k on it. The cars has obviously been taken care of, and is in almost perfect shape. Anyway, it has aerospeed 18" wheels on it with 235/40/18's. It is 100% stock and the guy that owned it before me bought it because he just had a kid and wanted an all-wheel drive car that was a four door. Never touched it other than rims.
Anyway, it pulls hard, but not quite as hard as my buddies wrx with 100k on it and stock rims. Tomorrow I'm going to hook up a cheap boost gauge (temporarily just to check the boost). I don't have any clue what vacuum line to tap into the check boost. When should my boost come on? When should I have max boost? (rpms)
I just want to make sure that nothing wrong with the car before the warranty is up.
Could the rims and larger tires make my wrx feel slower? I know they are slightly taller then stock tires. I just want to make sure its 100% before the warranty is up and before I do a Cobb stage II package.
Please let me know
and by the way it seems to start pulling around 3500 and feels like full boost around 4k... like i said before that is just feeling with no gauge.
Please help me out!!!
