    Just bought used WRX... loving it

    I just got my '02 WRX on saturday and I love this thing. up till now fastest thing ive Driven is a '94 Grand prix lol. Only thing im unsure about is what mods have been done to it. Im new to the whole modding thing and when i bought the car the only stuff on it i could find was a Greddy Profec-b boost controller and a Apexi Cat-back exhaust. Unbeknownst to myself tho i was putting 15lbs of boost through it. So i figured out how my controller worked and put it down to between 7-8lbs. Anyway im looking for tips and trick wherever i can get them so feel free to share lol.

    Welcome to the club

    You should be able to run about 13lbs of boost safely
