    Cool My new to me 04 wrx

    Just wanted to introduce myself to the site. Im a 17 year kid who at the age of 13 was into to cars and really liked the WRC and subarus. Saved up for five years working in summer landed a high paying job last two years and finally in five years had enough to buy my dream car 2004 Impreza Wrx San Remo Red didnt want a red car but got a killer deal and red is now my favorite color. Also not another red wrx for 300 miles so you know its me. Dont have rich parents that just bought it for me so I really apreciate my wrx not saying those who do dont and who needs college anyway just kidding. Did some minor mods by myself in shop class Including: Cat back exhuast soon to be turbo back, Cobb Stage 1, Subaru badge delete more agressive fornt, snorkel mod love the spool sound, sti key which i read adds 25hp, red light mod machtes my paint didnt like look of green and of course Rally Armor Mud flaps which is a necessity in Alaska and then lastly nice studded tires wich makes my wrx a beast in the snow. Also wanted to thank the community for all the help and the knowledge here. Learned so much from site. Here some pics. Just wondering if any of you have a vf34 and can tell me if it has same turbo lag as stock td04 or more? Also i recomend Stage 1 to anyone love the power excited about stage 2 then 2.5 with vf34.Cobb rules. Sorry for the long post just wanted to tell everything about my car love wrx and wont buy a diffrent model unless it an sti subaru owner for life.AkWrx99556

    Greetings and welcome to the club!

    You seem to have read and learned a lot already - how long have you been a lurker? Congrats on saving and buying it all yourself - very commendable.

    Black skirts

    In 04 models the side skirts are black they later revised this in 05 to color macht one of the only way to tell diffrence between 04/05

    Black side skirts match tires perfectly. The interior on the 2005 is noticeably different then the 2004.

    I would imagine there is a lot of loose gravel and anti skid on the roads in AK. Why watch the paint chip and peel on painted side skirts?

    I bought my WRX new in March 2004. I am on my third windshield thanks to rock spewing trucks.

    Truckers need to do what they do ... bad timing on my part I suppose.

    Drinking and driving is one of the dumbest things a person can do. So hope everybody is safe today

    The VF34 spools a bit faster. My friend's stock WRX td04 takes almost forever to get going, but admittedly I run an RA gear setup which has shorter ratios and keeps the engine higher in the rev range. It has more potential than the stock, that's for sure. A VF39 is a good, reliable and cheap option also, fyi.

    And good job on the car man! Looking good
