Well I just purchased a WRX today.. oh man soo lovely to drive! And this is also my first manual transmission car I've owned. So driving home from the dealer today was quite a learning experience. But overall I feel I'm getting the hang of it pretty well. And I've driven it around a lot this afternoon and evening just to get a better feel for it as come Tuesday I'm gonna have to drive it in traffic.
I got a used 2005 in Silver with 7500 miles.. was going for $19.9k an excellent deal if you ask me. And when I test drove it two days ago the dealer didnt know it had an aftermarket mod on it!! Today when I finished all the paperwork and went to pick it up they told me it had a 'Turbo Exhaust-Dump' on it. I believe that is what he called it. I'm not really too knowledgable about the internal parts and mods on cars so thought I would post this here to find out what exactly this is. There is a small switch to the left of the stearing whell that opens closes the valve.. damn what a difference. Damn thing is LOUD as all hell with it fully open. My question is, does this make any difference in performance or its it just for the sound?? And how much does a mod like that cost?
But anyway love the car.. can't wait to drive it more.
