    New wrx owner from charlotte

    Hi guys. I am a diehard dsm guy. I have built many fast dsms and even a 430whp evo. My 90 awd eclipse is taken apart right now getting a new clutch and turbo setup. I am going with a shearer topmount manifold and a bw s366 turbo. My old turbo setup made 560 hp. I have been fascinated with wrx's lately and need a nice daily driver so I have decided to purchase a 2002 wrx. It is silver and has a 5 speed. I dont know too much about these cars but I have put a transmission in a wrx one time at my old job. I am picking the car up sunday evening and I cant wait. I am very excited. I dont want to go all out with this car. I just want around 350hp and I will be good. Hope to learn a lot here and will post pics of the ride when I get it.

    Okay I got the car sunday and I love it. I think this is a great all around car. It handles like its on rails. I really like the stock suspension and how smooth it is. If all goes well I am planning on going to a DSM/Subaru shootout next weekend at the 1/4 mile track. I wont be racing it but just watching and hanging out with friends. I might drag race it once I get a different turbo. I have been looking at either a 16g or a fp 68 hta.
