    new guy first subaru!

    Hey guys, just figured id post since i got a new car and im kinda new to this forum.. its a 2004 subaru wrx with 58k miles. im not new to the game, but am definately new to subarus so any tips, any pointers would be greatly appreciated

    future:
    i like to sit a little low, but i know subarus arent meant to be low, so maybe a nice spring for now.
    i hear down pipe is a good upgrade from the stock.

    and question is, since i never owned a "turboed" car, and i came from hondas, the car feels like it takes a second to get its groove on, if that makes since. other then my honda, it just went.

    well, heres a picture.. thanks guys

    Welcome to the club. What you are referring to is called turbo lag. It is common with all turbo cars. A few performance upgrades and you can make that lag time shorter. Like you, my WRX is my first turbo car but I am loving it so far. Good luck and have fun.
