Hi, I have always liked WRX and STi's and now it has come time for me to finally get one. I have heard a lot of good things about these cars and some bad things. I currently drive an auto 93 Probe GT with a JDM KLZE engine swap, but I always have problems with the tranny. I want my WRX to be a 5-speed (stick) but I have been hearing that the trannies on these cars are weak too (you cant do burnouts on them?). If I get an WRX it would be an '04 or '05, and I would do some modding to it. That TBE, BOV, and hopefully that would get me to mid 13.5's in the 1/4 mile. Would those mods get me into the the mid 13's and how are the insurance rates on the WRX"s. I really love these cars, but i need a reliable car that can handle minor modifications. Anyways I wanted to hear from current WRX drivers opinions, so any input of any kind would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
