    new to subaru and to turbo

    So I jus bought a 2004 wrx in blue 76k, never dealt with subaru or turbo I am actually a honda enthusiast but I live in ny and honda can't handle snow too well I've always liked wrxs but jus sacrificed awd for vtec lol....well anyways ima big guy and these bucket seats aren't really for me but I got the car for good price so ill either lose some weight or manage somehow....but out of curiosity can I put put stock impreza seats in my car without having to mod anything b/c those seats are much more big boi friendly.

    Now any advice u guys have I'm lookin to make around 400 hp can I reach that with stock turbo/motor since this will be my daily not lookin to over do it for now until I buy a beater....and I hear good things about dynoflash in ct..is it worth making a trip over there from ny or can I find a good place closer....thanks for any info it is really appriciated as I'm still learning to manuver the site....

    First of all, welcome to the site

    Where in NY you live?

    You should be able to swap seats pretty easily if you have the mechanical know-how.

    You'll be ouside the limits of reliability for the motor and transmission at your desired power level. Until you have another vehicle to drive and the money to replace the broken parts, lower your goals.

    As for "where to go", there are a bunch of decent places in the northeast. I have no personal experience with DynoFlash. Maybe someone on here has, and can chime in.

    Not a problem. Link I provided was just to show you what kind of work goes into a 400 whp subaru. I'm sure you're capable and responsible enough to handle her.
