I have been reading the forums here for about a week now and haven't posted in the New Member Hangout.
Back in mid september i was on the verge of buying a an Evo MR. I think the only thing that stopped me from doing this was that the closest EVO was 3 hours away. Instead, i drove an hour to get a '08 WRX. I have already put 1,000 miles on it and took it to the 1/8 mile track this weekend. My previous experiance at the track was with a FWD DSM. All that thing would do is spin off the line, not very fun.
I ganked the boost gauge and BOV off the DSM before i sold it. So the gauge is my first mod. Right now i am at work waiting for UPS to deliver my wideband. It should be here very soon. Actually i just had to sign for it while typing this...lol. Then its off to the shop to get the WideBand and DP Back Exhaust installed. I read on NAISOC that Japtrix's '08 WRX project car was running fine with a 3 inch exhaust.
Well, i guess i am going to open up this box. Have a nice day.
Throw away the bov buddy... bad idea...

welcome to the club from one '08 owner to another. Enjoy the car, I'm liking it more and more everyday. Also, I'm surprised as to how many compliments the '08 is getting.
i think that's the only one i have right now, aside from my avatar.
if the track updates it's website i might have one or two more from that night.
What did you run at the track?

Congrats on the new car. I was tempted to get a new 08 but still haven't grown to love the body yet. I know in time I will; I ended up getting an 06 WRX TR. Just like everyone else, I'm anxious to see what and how others are going to be fixing up their 08's.

And i would have had my exhaust and Wideband on today but i was out of the state all day. Hopefully tomorrow. The Perrin Dual Pod for my sterring wheel should be in on the 4th also. hmmm what to order next.
