    New Guy

    Hello everyone! Im new at this forum let alone new all around to any forum and I wanted to introduce myself. I just moved to Visalia, Ca for a new job. Im making more money now so time for some mods~

    I drive a 2002 Silver WRX Wagon. When I bought it it already had a 3" turbo back exhaust system. I dont know the brand but Ive been told its a nice system. It has a nice deep rumble.

    My car has 120k/mi. I want to get a Cobb Access Port but have some reservations due to the mileage. Should I be worrying about putting more power in a motor with that mileage or just go for it?

    Nice to meet everyone! Thanks for your input!

    welcome! As for the accessport, get a compression and leak down test and see where you stand. If its good, go for it. If not weigh your options. I always pay to play so if it blows it blows I fix it. My philosophy.

    Welcome

    Before adding something like the AP, you need to ensure it is not still running the OEM uppipe:

    Other than that, if you're worried about the healthiness of the motor, compression and leakdown tests can give you some insight, as LPPTundWRX suggested.
