    Its official, It's Mine!! I'm a subbie owner

    I just got home with her. Ralley Blue 2002 WRX w/ 73xxx miles. I picked her up for a cool 10k. Never been modified or raced.

    Up on the todo list: (Please provide feedback)
    1. Cobb Tuning Access Port
    2. Borla Hush Exhaust
    3. Perrin Up Pipe
    4. Turbo XS down pipe
    5. Greddy Turbo Timer
    6. Tint the dang windows

    Let me know what you guys think about the list.
    I also want to know what the best suspension setup would be. I am looking to drop it about 1.75 in. Please give me some feedback.

    Also how nervous should I be about the tranny. I have heard to take it super easy on the tranny as the gears/syncro are delicate.

    Just don't beat on it too hard (e.g., don't slam gears).

    The mod list you gave is practical (though, you don't need a turbo timer - waste of $$), though I'd go with the TurboXS UP instead of the Perrin.

    Turbo timer

    Is it not a good idea to let things cool down if you have been on it hard? I know that was the first thing after boosting my teg I was told to let it cool down and a tt is the best bet for that. That not true with the WRX? (I'm new so I assume stupid questions are cool)

    yes if you have been driving hard then its always good to let the car cool down for a few minutes before turning it off.
