    My WRX is slow as hell!!

    I dont get it, when Im doing like 50mph on the road ppl just fly by me like Im not even moving. It really pisses me off! My WRX got super slow. When I first got the car moved like a scared jack rabbit! Now its slow as hell. Any thoughts why?

    That seems rather extreme. Everyone gets used to a given "feel" of a car - are you sure this is not a lot of it?

    thats just it I was getting used to a certain feel and then all of a sudden the car just doesnt seem right anymore. It doesnt have that pin you to the seat feeling anymore.

    That's because they are traveling faster than 50 mph. Try depressing the accelerator to increase speed.

    Any kind of EM(engine management)?
    Did it start happening right after the mods were installed?

    Have you tried slapping few VTEC stickers on it?
