    Long time Fan

    Hello everyone, my name is Bill I have owned 3 Subarus now, 2 legacy's and finally a 02 WRX, my dream car. Do not have much done to it yet, but I do plan on doing a fair amount to it. I have prodrive springs in it from when I bought it and the windows are tinted, and my fience bought me a carbon fiber shift knob, but that is it. Next upgrade will probably be bigger rear breaks, and steel break lines. Any suggestions.

    Welcome to the club.

    I had a 02 WRX before my STi. One of the upgrades that I did was front STi v7 4pots. I think if you are going to upgrade the brakes it is better to focus on the fronts rather than the rear since a majority of the braking is done with the fronts.

    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.

    Ditto...and welcome to the club! Glad to see someone doing a brake upgrade as a first mod...IMHO, it's the best upgrade you can do (besides drivers training).
