Hey all.. just like to introduce myself. Im not a WRX owner... yet! I currently drive a 3rd Gen Tib with some light mods... though lately I am getting the overwhelming urge to just give up on the horrendously expensive process of making a tib fast and look into a nice shiny WRX. Hoping to get one in the next year or so, when my Insurance rates will be dropping (turning 25, getting married too!) and Ill have a bit of extra cash around especially with the new job I should be getting over the next few weeks within my company.
I like my tib but the tranny doesnt exactly feel very strong, and being the only guy running high 14's low 15's at the track gets kinda old after a while :P Dunno.. when I drive it I can't help but wonder when its gonna crap out on me.. I guess alot of it is mental and whatnot but I have another friend with similar level of mods (vented cf hood, pulley ,intake) and hes kinda at the same position im in. RIPP has a Vortech Kit out putting about 290whp down but the cost of the kit is tons of cash and a risk with the questionable (especially long term) durability of the delta block without a bunch of engine work, and Id feel alot more secure driving a make of car that Ive seen my share of 200k+ odo readings from yaknow?
Ill probably be lurking alot... hopefully Ill have my just-drove-home-my-rex post eventually
