    Your Input Would Be Appreciated...

    I am new to the Forum...

    I have an 04 WRX Wagon (white) with 85K on it.

    The car is from Salt Lake City and i am the 3rd owner.

    The exterior of the vehicle is 99% and the interior is likewise.

    Here is my issue....

    I have been saving up to go stage 2 with a Cobb Turbo back (catted) and a Turbo XS Up Pipe (currently stock), but I am apprehensive as the vehicle has some rust on the rear suspension parts, several of the suspension bolts and the rear brake parts.

    Because I am new to Subaru's (Toyota guy for 20 years) I am not sure if the amount of rust I have on Wagon is normal for snow country, and if I should invest the 2K to go stage 2 with this vehicle. I am apprehensive to invest in the vehicle with the rust, but maybe the amount of rust I have is not an issue and indicative of Subaru's

    Your input is appreciated!

    Thank you!

    I wouldn't consider any of that concerning. Looks like a normal amount of surface oxidation for a vehicle of that year from snow/salt country. If it really bothers you you can wire brush it, and use a good rust primer and paint.

    Congrats, and don't let a little brown metal prevent you from enjoying your car. I'm still a Toyota guy since I also have a 4runner, but I'd love to have an early 80's pick up, or an FJ45 instead.

    It doesn't really look like anything serious. Maybe some time with a paint removing wheel on your drill and a couple cans of rustoleum can't fix and prevent

    No problem, about the only problem you might encounter would be seized bolts if/when you remove them. Just blast them with penetrating lube well before hand.

    Just for your info, for 2k you can go with a vf43, vf39 setup. Just look around nasioc.

    Modded injectors to 550cc
    STI TMIC
    vf43
    Sti UP
    3" turboback exhaust
    Cobb AP2(costed me 600 bucks) But it's always good to have this for our cars.
