    Thumbs up Lovin my 07 WRX, but leaving soon

    Hey whaz up, I just bought my new O7 WRX and I have never had so much fun driving before. I have previously owned a dodge stealth ES, but there is no comparison to how much more fun my Subie is. Sad to say though I am leaving for Iraq in the near future for a year so I will have to park it. Although when I do return I am planning of doing some heavy modifications if anyone has suggestions I would love to get some feed back with ideas and maybe things to stay away from.

    When you are gone, make SURE you have someone take care of the vehicle for you... my brother has a 69 chevy truck, and had it parked for about 9 mo's. He never started it in that 9 mo's.. He knew the battery would be bad, but when he went and jumped it, it still wouldn't start. Come to find out, the additives in the pump gas actually congealed inside his fuel pump, fuel lines, carb, injectors, and settled in the bottom of his tank.

    Make sure to have someone start it for like 5 minutes every week or 2. It'll save you headaches!

    Btw.. army or 'rines?

    I want to be the first to say thank you for all that you do. Be safe over there and we'll all be waiting for your safe return! And listen to Sinister, make sure you have someone start it up once in a while.
    Stage II and loving it!
