Hey all -
Just wanted to say hello, came over to the WRX from an '87 Buick Grand National. For all those unaware, it's a turbo-V6 that Buick made in the late 80's that spanked most anything around, and it was a great car. I modified the hell out of it with bolt-ons and never tore into the motor, but it went quite well.
Anyways, I needed a combo daily driver/fun car so I settled on an '06 WRX with the 5spd, loaded w/ all the goodies (WOW a lot has changed since 1987!) and I just love it so far. I want to make sure I can have some fun without making it unreliable, so any tips in caring for these cars would definitely be appreciated.
And while I know this isn't the forum for this question, but does anybody bother going Stage 1 on these cars? It seems pointless to drop $700 on a Cobb AP for 0.4 hp and 6/7 ft lbs tq, but maybe thats just me.
