    New guy, long time Subaru lover, first time owner

    So as my title says, I'm new and have always wanted a WRX since they came out. I've saved for awhile (3.5 years) and paid cash for a used 2007 WRX. Im at Stage 3ish now.

    Mods include: Helix catback, helix catted DP, AP v2.0, VF43 turbo, Perrin TMIC, STI injectors (got them for $100 from a friend). 304whp/332wtq on 91oct. Not too shabby.

    Next I plan on some transmission work, then wheels/tires, then light suspension tweaks, and some gauges and other stuff to dress the inside up.

    I don't have pictures right now because a) its nothing special and b) my father dropped my digi camera off of a scaffold 6 stories high.

    I should mention that I have been visiting this site on a regular basis for the past few years and trying to do as much research as possible. I'm still no expert and know I have plenty to learn from the vets on this site.

    You sure have done the research ... more than many do (including myself 4 years ago). Glad you found us a useful resource.

    Thanks for the welcomes. My newest research has been in transmission/driveline mods (thats my next step) and I love the amount of knowledge that everyone brings to the site.

    I've heard that the 06 injectors are something along the lines of 550cc or so. The Sti's are 565cc. I figured $100 for some brand new injectors that, as I believe, flow a little bit better, why not?

    I'm not completely sure, but if anyone can clarify, please do.
