Hey guys, been a long time reader, just started posting recently because i've finally gotten into a WRX. Always wanted one, now that i'm 20, less then a month from 21 ( +1 for insurance drops lol ) and did plenty of looking for 8 months or so, i found a 2003 wrb wrx at a dealership sort of close to my house. I've been through about 3 other vehicles before this one, and this is by far, the most fun i've ever had with a vehicle, i think subaru has found a new life long sooby owner! I'm so happy with my purchase.
It came with a few mods done to it, some i'm happy with, some i would like some input. STI Genome struts on tiens, painted sideskirts, C-west front grille, APS Bov ( ) and a CAI ( if i had the stock bov and intake, i'd put them on, but i dont notice anything bad, but then again last time drove a stock wrx was about 3 years ago ) and the one part im unsure about is, it has a one peice 3" TBE on it. Obviously made by a local muffler shop, its tucked up rather high/close to the bottom/underneath of the car, and has a exhaust that looks like the tenzo ( Carbon can, titanium looking tip, but doesnt have any name on it ) muffler welded onto the end, also the positioning on it isnt that great, doesnt tilt up, almost tilts downwards and very close to the rear bumper. Its pretty loud, but my question is, should i ditch this homemade setup, and go for a UP/DP, cat-back setup, something like HKS or Helix, also with a AP, to get the most out of this engine? Or stick with the no namer, who knows the level of performance, and try and put a AP on it, and hope all goes well?
I've got a little bit of money burning my pocket , but i'm undecided if i want to kinda start over with a exhaust setup, accessport and such, or stick with what i have, upgrade to a AP and go with like a OEM rear and front lip. Any suggestions would be appreciated! Take it easy on me too, i'm a noob, and is it just me, or with my little post count, and being a noob i still know speedette will chime in very soon to give me a warm welcome? haha. Thanks guys! The site is great!
