I have always read this websites forums. For the past 3 years as I dreamed of getting an STI. Finally, after MONTHS of being in the buying phase, I got my baby. 15,000 miles on an 04. No strut clunk, turbo timer, and a cold air intake.
The ONLY thing , and it's actually going to be quite a big thing I'm sure, about the car that is a problem is that 5th gear grinds. Not to mention for some reason the previous owner put on a WRX exhaust because the owner prior to that put some exhaust that made it sound like "crap" according to him.
First question: How much damage will that WRX exhaust cause if I keep it on there?
I wanted to take a moment to point out that this website I have found to be the most competent and well run site when it comes to info regarding the WRX family.
