Hey everyone. I've been doing a bunch of research for the past few months, mostly just reading and searching and not posting. I've been an Evo guy and looking for my next car for several months now. After looking at cost and what I want out of a car, I have finally decided that the 2011 WRX hatch is perfect. I can get a great deal on an Evo X but the usuable cargo space with the hatch, being 400lbs lighter, and boxer sound edged out the X. I'll definitely go Stage 2 but nothing past that. I've modded my Evos extensively and am looking to just keep things mild this time around.
I was looking at 08+ STIs too but after consideration I won't ever use DCCD and the WRX will be just fine. So I'm shopping around now for the best deal on an 11 WRX.
My previous cars:
2003 Nissan 350Z Track (black)
2003 Mitsu Evo 8 (blue)
2002 Subaru WRX w/ 06 STI engine swap
2003 Mitsu Evo 8 (yellow) --current car
2011 Subaru WRX hatch (dark gray)
I bought my current Evo from a buddy who sold it to me real cheap, so I couldn't pass it up. It's got a ported 9 turbo, intake, tbe, 3.8" fmic, 1000cc injectors, Walbro, coilovers, and Evo 9 seats/taillights/BBS SE rims/bov. It has a dual map of 91 octane and E85. If I were to get cams, on E85 I'd be over 400whp but I have a really mild tune right now since the car has 112k miles on it!
I know a lot about the Z and Evo 8/9 but am still learning about Subies. This forum seems like a nice community so I hope to contribute where I can. I don't feel that "Evo's are teh bestest!"...I don't care what car you drive as long as you enjoy driving it. So please don't hold the Evo thing against me!
Also, I have the same username on most forums (NASIOC, my350z, SoCalEvo, etc).
