    New here and have some questions

    Hello to All from Statesville, North Carolina.

    Alright...well here in about a month or month and a half...I'm going to be trading in my 2000 Integra for a 2002 WRX. I've heard things about wrx transmissions being kind of "iffy". Is this true for all wrx's? subarus? I've test driven a 2002 WRX and I love it a lot. I can't wait until I get one of my own. Also...what is the true HP of a 2002 WRX? I've seen it range anywhere from 227-235 on websites...so I didn't know if anybody knew if they were under rated or if that's pretty accurate.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm going with used...I know that I can get a 2002 WRX for what I can afford...both financing and insurance. What about the transmissions? Anybody have any problems with the clutch or gears?

    02's had the clutch shudder issues and thinner gears than the late 03's 04 & 05's.

    So the gears would be more likely to strip on the '02's?

    I also have a 2011 WRX sedan with an audio integrations performance fit FG enclosure loaded with a JL 10w6v2. Works great, very clean install. I too was worried it wouldn't be enough, but I am happy with the results.

    First base dyno was 194whp and yes weak tranny I'm making 278whp and I'm on my third tranny the first one was my fault then the second fail was the shop installing my ring and pinion wrong. Just don't beat on it, it is an upgrade from the integra but it can't be driven like a Honda. Welcome to the forum and u will enjoy ur wrx
