    New member and new ride pics

    Hey all, I just picked up my 02 Plat silver WRX a couple days ago. took a snap shot of it for you all. Its stock except for the STI short throw and sti trio gauges. Oh and the Ausie/U.K. 17in wheels. I love the wheels. Doubt anyone around me has them.

    I am coming from the Honda world as I have a 91 Accord and a 92 Integra that has a fully built b16 swap that I push to 10,000rpms and it has a t4/t67 turbo on it. at 15psi it pushes 320whp. Its nuts to drive. Not a car you can just drive everyday. Its down for bearing replacement but I got a new toy anyways. Below you will see a pic of the b16 and the Rex.

    Welcome!

    Why does the rest of the world get the good stuff (17" wheels, etc.)?

    Nice WRX, mang. I come from the Honda world too. Still got love for them, but not as a daily driver. Have a built B18C1 with a T467 set-up also. I'm looking to put one on a WRX and I don't see why no one has done it yet. Probably because the purpose of them does not require insane top-end power. Good luck with the car.

    Hi all, thanks for the responses. I do have some mods planned. I want to get some lowering springs, maybe H&R. Not sure yet. Sway bars for sure, and a front mount cause they look sic. Maybe a turbo upgrade with full exhaust (not loud). I have an extra turbo here also. Its a standard t3/t4 ball bearing with a .48 exhaust AR I believe. Not to familiar with the WRX manifold as I havent even got time to look at it close but if its possible to do maybe I'll try it, who knows. Thats besides my huge T4/T67 on my Integra. Anyways, I am enjoying the car so much as it is right now, just giving rides to friends and stuff.
