    and where can i get a good radar detector?
    Ahh the joys of racing good times good times anyway to help bail you out buddy when i got my wrx i went out and brought the best raddar dector out on the market the escort passport 9500ihttp://www.escortradar.com/Im telling you dont listen to what anyone says buy this one, i got mine in octorber and ill telling you it saves me so many times, it lets you know 1/4 ahead of time before a cop shows up and its 99% effective in elimating false signals, it runs off a satalite and lets you market locations of speed traps as well, and when the cops upgrade there system you can up grade the radar dector with the USB port as well. It runs about 500 in change but look at it this way do you want to spend 500 on yourself or give the 500 to the crooks at city hall trust me get this dector

    ooooorrrr you can just not street race... that works better than any radar detector could ever dream of.... just my 2 cents.

    I suggest taking off the aftermarket BOV as your first mod the car. Put the stock BPV back on and you should see a great bit of difference in the smoothness of the car. Also, it sounds like your car has quite a bit of modding done to it already, so you might want to take some pics and post them up for everyone to see.

    Have fun, and be safe!

    That price sounds really fishy, especially considering this car does not lose nearly as much value as other cars. I'd do a history check on that car just based on the fact that the owner could have traded it in for more than he sold it to you for.

    whats nice about your car is the front mount intercooler that gives you a little more Hp

    as far as mods go for your car get the cobb access port to flash your ecu it will give you 30 more hp, also a turbo back exhaust as well for starters

    it depends on what you want to do to your car though i mean on top of what i just said you can do a boost controler as well, and if you really have money to burn an up graded turbo, the skies the limit for these cars

    but the first thing i do if i was you is the access port
    First off Front mount intercooler on a stock TD04 or TD05 turbo will not make an improvement. In many cases it will cause lagg. As a side note although the COBB accessport is a nice add on to the car, it is not really needed. I have a PROTUNE and im all stage 2 currently pushing around the 240WHP mark. I have a cpl friends that have accessports and unless there protuned there ****. The cobb maps are a joke. You cant put 1 thing on the market and expect it to work with everyone the same. Everyone drives and mods their car differently


    TO FURTHER continue very nice ride. Sexy mods. for 9000 with 30k on the car sounds to me like you got a slammin deal. I wish you the best of luck so nothing 2 serious happens like tranny goes dead, turbo goes out, etc.
    Take care and welcome to subaru heaven

    thanks a bunch daniel, ur about as nice as the guy who sold me the car , also named daniel , but yeah responding to a few posts erlyer i did do a history check for the car and it was all up to spec with tune ups and recalls and everything was fine. the only thing im worried about now is why my clutch is always getting stuck (previous grinding i assume) and as to why my backend makes ridiculously loud thumps as i go over speed bumps and a meer 20 mph , also looking o a good site for jdm sti parts for bugg eyes. and some side marers... LET ME KNOW thanks

    I believe that sound is the piece of press board that covers your spare tire may be loose. My Wrx made that noise when it went over speed bumps as well. Set it back in the clips and hasn't done it since.
