    Cool Adios Honda, Hola Scoobies!!

    Waddup, Im Nick. I live in Mesa, AZ. Just picked up a 2002 WRX Wagon. Ive been into imports for over 10 yrs. For the last 6 yrs i have been invovled with Hondas. I think its time for a change and time to upgrade. Ive always wanted a bug eye WRX wagon. I dont know much about Subaru cars. But i plan on learning. FOr now, I plan on just making sure the engine is mechanically sound and get the cosmetic flaws fixed. after that i plan on upgrading the turbo and suspension.

    Welcome nick... nice looking bugeye! Read the stickys on the top of the subforum area to learn the basics... there is a link in my signature about the importance of engine management for modifications... post up some pictures of your old hondas...

    welcome. i come from honda's too. just keep in mind they're totally different animals and modding is a LOT different.

    read the stuff that scoobyrex suggested.

    Welcome! Nice bugeye wagon... I love the WRB.

    Like others have said, read the stickies. Unlike Hondas, you have a lot to do (read: thousands to spend) before you even consider upgrading the turbo.

    thanks guys for the suggestions. seems like i will be reading alot. im not in a rush to build my wagon up. upgrading turbo n suspension will be further down the road when ive learned some more about this car. the good thing is that its completely bone stock..a clear canvas. im glad to see that im not the only one who came from hondas. i needed a change. plus i felt like the old man around a bunch of youngsters. plus OMG the drama..screw that lol.
