    New 2003 WRX owner

    Hello, everyone. I have been lurking on the forums for quite a few weeks learning about my new baby. I bought it w/ only 45,000 miles on it, and got a killer deal. I have been reading up on mods already, of course! It came with coilovers, upgraded clutch/flywheel, and enkei wheels. First mods on the list are:
    gauges - boost, egt, oil & fuel press./temp., etc. ...
    BPV
    WB02
    COBB AP
    COBB TBE
    COBB Intake

    Any input on if I'm heading in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. After those few power adders, I think it will be time for a drivetrain rebuild (i.e. STI 6-speed, mounts, etc.). I only have one pic so far.

    no need for a tranny swap only being stage 2. your stock trans is good to about 300wtq. but if you decided to go bigger turbo etc. then i would say go for the sti swap or do a ppg 5 spd swap.

    thats a nice color, very rare. goodluck, looks like your headin in the right direction. Search on NASIOC and you should be able to find a sti trans swap, used, for cheap.
