    New to the WRX, but not Subaru

    I just got a Bugeye yesterday, silver wagon, which is my 5th Subie (I've had two BK's, a BE and a GL turbo). Now it's time to learn a whole new engine! Driving it is totally different than an NA subie, the power is so peaky on the WRX.

    Planning on leaving it stock except for some gauges, brakes, and the stock clock is broken, so I need a clock in the car. Maybe do a twin Apiller gauge setup and a triple gauge pod on the dash; Pyrometer, wideband, a clock, boost, oil pressure, and a battery/alternator voltage gauge.

    I already cooked the brakes, now I have blued rotors. Going to get new rotors (slotted all around), and some ceramic pads.

    Don't say that! I'll wind up with a VF34, injectors, and Accessport in the next week!

    I'm gonna keep it stock while I'm in school. But, next summer, it'll get some serious mods.

    Thats what we all said.


    Step 1 is admitting you are gonna mod. Step 2 is giving into the urge. Step 3.....profit.

    lol You're right. I want a bigger turbo already. I just can't afford it right now, I need to replace my rad, brakes, thermostat, and get another set of wheels/tires first.
