    Another Sube Newb, just saying hi

    Just thought i'd pop on and say hi, now that i'm an actual Subaru owner. I've lurked here before, but never registered, coz i was moreso gathering info first (that, and I rarely have anything worthwhile to say, lol).

    Well, i just bought a brand spankin' new 2005 WRX on thursday, after my *sniff* 1997 Ford Probe blew it's transmission... at 64,000 miles, go fig.

    I'm *completely* new to the whole turbo car thing... even to a car that has over 170hp, lol. Therefore, any help people could give in how to treat this car well (it has to last me 6 years o.O) during its "break in" period would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks again, and i'm sure i'll be hanging around here more, *laugh*

    Welcome to the boards, keep your car under 4K for the break-in (1K miles) and you should be doing well.

    Welcome!! If you are new to turbo cars I would strongly suggest spending some time looking at the linked thread.

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