    Cool Hello, new member w/ '06 WRX

    I haven't made many posts, but ive been familiarized with this site for a little while now. I am a previous honda owner, but when that was stolen (suprise suprise) I ended up w/ a rally blue 06 wrx. Great car, really quick, lots of torque. I'm still getting accustomed to awd, and the power ::Tim Allen grunt:: The downsides to it are that it doesnt feel very reliable and the transmission broke the day after i bought it. Upside: whoever owned it b4 me put a 3" downpipe, which i followed up w/ 3" exhaust, and an sti intercooler, and lots and lots of boost. Havent dyno'd it but can kinda get a feel for the power after running a Z06 and keeping up.
    A little about me:
    22/F Im in the southeast, Florida to be exact. i have a two year old daughter. Im a legal secretary for anyo f you w/ reckless driving tickets, lol, or criminal/personal injury cases. And i love cars... I dont make it out to many meets, but I do my best, and you will see me at local track events. Forgive me for any future Nooby questions, as subarus are as foreign to me as a honda with torque to most. Thanks for the welcome, and nice site!

    Welcome to the site!

    Do you know if your car is tuned to run with the aftermarket exhaust?

    no its not. to be honest i dont think its tuned for the boost either. whoever owned it b4 me abused the shyt out of it. it runs rich, but i dont think its ever been tuned.
