    Hey everyone, the names Josh.

    Recently purchased a black 02 bugeye with 93,580 miles.

    I'll be honest I'm not sure how much power it's throwin down but I do know it's TONS more than the 2000 Civic Si I had.

    Mods include (off the top of my head):
    Perron FMIC
    Perron CAI
    (not sure of oil catch can)
    TurboXS BOV
    Lightened pullys

    (Yes I'm aware I took a huge risk purchasing this car with these mods, fortunately a good friend of mine is a Subie guru and actually reccommended I follow through with the purchase)

    3 flaws with the car I have found right away
    1. Paint (obviously it's a 8 year old car the body won't be perfect)
    2. When speeds of 40-60 mph are reached a particular sound can be heard from the bottom rear of the vehicle (whoosh whoosh sound) I assume it's an axle but whaddu I know? *Turns out it's a bad wheel bearing, if anyone is familiar with this please feel free to share.
    3. Gotta change the VCG (Valve Cover Gaskets) which aren't all that hard to replace just annoying.

    Once again I've done a little research and I know the risk I took however, I'm no genius. So any bit of information anyone is willing to give to me will be greatly appreciated.

    Will have pics up this weekend, gotta clean cause the dealership left a bunch of wax and ****

    Welcome, enjoy the forum and the car.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
