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.
