Stealthtuner turned wrxtuner.
94 dodge stealth base (200hp)
all eclipse sound system
92 dodge stealth R/T TT (400awhp)
turbonetics T70 single turbo conversion, lots of supporting mods. basically a dragster.
here is what it looked like: (this was the post I bought it from)

Thats just so you guys know where I am coming from.
So a big tree fell on both of those and totalled them. Now I am getting a 2002 wrx, 5spd. WR blue. Stock.
car has 113k on it but looks really clean. Gettin it shipped soon!
I was thinking of getting some rims for it and an intake and exhaust right off the bat.
any input? sorry if I shouldnt be asking these questions in this section.
What is the best site to buy wrx performance parts for a good price? most popular? some other good ones?
I LOVE the hks carbon ti, and hi-power. sound great. had a hks super dragger on the r/t TT.
but for the hks it says: Fitment note: Will NOT clear Subaru rear diff protector
does it bolt on? something need to be fabricated? extra pipe?
Mine will have the stock rear diff.
If not HKS, im pretty set on BORLA I think. I dont want a "ricey sound", I want it low, and aggressive. Not like a super high pitched thin metal, fart cannon buzz. no offense to anyone.
any input on DOWNPIPE? CAT/STRAIGHT PIPE?
also.. does a straight pipe give it too loud of a sound for a 4 cylinder? too much buzz?
I was looking into the K&N typhoon. almost 100 percent. like k&n, like the looks, performance, sound.
bolt on install?
I want to get bigger than stock size. maybe 17" or 18". is that too big for a subie?
what specs would I need to find a rim that fits? bolt pattern? etc.
Again, sorry if I should have posted this elsewhere. But this my first post. So naturally I went here.
And because I had so many questions. I wanted them all here instead of bombarding sections with multiple threads right off the bat. I am sure I will have more questions.
What are some common problems with 2002 wrx 5spd?
What needs replaced/maintained when?
What is some good literature to buy for reference? for the price?
What needs to be done to maintain turbo/intercooler, tranny?
What is the best oil to use for our turbo? 5w30, 10w40, partial synth, regular? brand?
Any heads up for someone who knows very little about these cars?
What do watch for? keep an eye on?
Thank you all very much. Really.
