    New WRX owner

    check out my new baby, i just got her today and already burned 1 tank of gas.








    just wondering about the HKS badge is it a special edition or just a sticker?

    Very nice. You've got a semi rare color there. Does it have any HKS parts on it or is it stock?

    If its shinny then its probly not stock unless its your intercooler. HKS makes blow off valves, air intakes and exaust pieces. You have a stock exaust from what I can see so keep your eye out for a BOV and intake.

    Read the stickys for more info.

    Did some checking under the hood today, found that it already has a Perrin up pipe and the air box silencer has been removed. As for signs of other mods i really donít know what to look for, I checked the trunk pan and didnít see and holes in possible NoS locations. (What a relief) I did see some holes in the pillar column on the interior where a gauge pod was i cant believe i didnít notice that when i bought it, I was in such a daze when I was driving it lol. Also the lever for the fresh air/recirculate is broke off, minor I know but still maybe I can get it fixed under warranty.

    Sounds like the previous owner's mods were pretty conservative, that's good. Another thing you might want to check for would be an aftermarket down pipe.

    looking down over the turbo you can barely make out Perrin on the up pipe


    couldn't get the right angle but you get the idea
