    finally got a wrx

    Hey my name is Travis. Iam from Gainesville,FL. Finally got a wrx, its a wagon, I never thought I would ever drive a wagon, I never even noticed them until i got mine. But now I am in love with them. An older guy owned it before me and had it since new, had Parkinson's so he couldnt drive it. He claimed he put 4k into the motor by Vishnu (up pipe and downpipe, stainless steel catless exhaust, reprogrammed, three pillar gauges and maybe some other stuff). So far all I have done is a cold air intake and my system out of my old truck, and suggestions on what I should do nextwill help. Thanks

    Howdy wrxwagon22 !!!

    I'm also new to the forum and I also own a Wagon. Mine is a 2002 WRX Prodrive Wagon, white with stock body appearance.

    You will love the wagon. Dont know about where you are but over here (South Africa) they are very rare and you stand out in the crowd.

    Here is a good place to find out how you can mod your car:

    Greetings and welcome to the club Travis!

    I would also consider the suspension next (it was my first mod).

    What kind of ground clearance do you have?

    I can't lower my car any, as my front bumper scrapes on my driveway daily @ stock height - I'm looking at the Ground-control kit.
