    haha! +1 Welcome to the Club! Looks like you got a killer deal. I would be gentle with it until you know what you got for sure as far as mods go. Certain mods are not good for our cars, but seem to be prevalent anyway. Do a search for "bov thread" and you'll see what I mean..

    welcome

    if your beating srt4's that things not stock, so you might wanna figure out whats done to it. Take some engine bay pics and maybe a picture of the underbody of the car if that's possible.

    +a bunch

    I would recommend determining what has already been done to this car before planning any more modifications. Just by the picture with the headlights, bumper, and FMIC I would assume there are several more modifications that are not so apparent. There are several threads discussing good mods when starting from stock, but you are clearly not starting from stock, especially true if you were able to beat THE SRT4

    yeah it was some guy that i seen at a party and i bearly got my car so i wasint sure wtf to do with my boost controller and **** (apexi type r ) but anyways he took me on the start and after 2nd gear i was gone

    here is what i know of the car so far:

    act clutch
    3 inch piping
    front intercooler obviously
    not sure what kind of bov i have
    turbo timer? not sure if its the name but also apexi
    boost controller
    wrx leather interior ( dont know if its from the dealer or custom but its really nice)
    volkan 18's with brembo front brakes
    some form of headers....
    and thats about all i know besides the obvious visual mods

    any ideas on how to check what kind of turbo i have because the engine bay just looks like a bunch of non sense lol

    and wtf is FMIC ( still new to my REx)

    edit:nvm im assuming front mount intercooler lol

    Did you take it to a mechanic to check out the car before you bought it? Something could be wrong with the car thats why you bought it for soooo cheap.

    If you take your foot off the cluctch, then depress again while slightly tapping the gas - would you then be able to move in gear? If so, your synchronizer is hozed (probably lots of grinding gears in the past).

    I had this problem on my last car - a ford focus. It was easy to work around, just a little frustrating.

    its just gonna be a really expensive ticket, your not gonna be in deep sh1t.
    If he put a specific speed limit over 99 mph, he woulda had to tow your car by california law.
