Today is my 1 week anniversary with my new '08 WRX, still loving it. I think it has a whole 400 miles now.
One thing that is kinda bugging me is the gas pedal. It so soft that I can barely feel any resistance, especially when I'm wearing my thick sole work shoes. It's a stick and if I don't look at the tach while taking off from a dead stop I'll stall. Embarrassing. I can barely hear the engine with the radio off, so without looking at the tach I really don't have any idea where the engine RPM's are at. I've driven sticks for 20 years, although not in the last 10, but you'd think I would have it back down pat after a week right?
So I'm thinking I either need a louder muffler, or more gas pedal resistance.
I'm definitely leaning towards the latter.
I figure I'll just add a stiffer spring to the throttle on the engine, but I have one question: Where is it?
Is it under the interchanger radiator thing?
