    Newish, againish?

    After 3 long years, I'm finally back in a car I can love. Today we finalized my trade in for a 2008 scion tc. (5 speed, 31,xxx miles, function and form type 2 coilovers, injen intake, 19x8.5 Tenzo R GT6 wheels, short antenna, and probly a few other odds and ends.) Long story short, car was involved in a minor flood, after being cleaned twice and a few other small issues, I couldn't stand it nor Geico. Plus with a 6 month old daughter, her safety and getting her in and out was a pain.

    Picture of the flood. This was only 2 hours into the rain, it stormed for 3 more. Repair shop pulled 4 gallons of water out, along with the 3 I pulled out.
    (Good recent picture)

    Now the good. Today we got a 2006 Subaru WRX 94xxx miles, 5 speed, blah blah blah. Car mechanically is awesome. Cosmetically has a few blemishes.




    Now, what I do know about this car is little. All the receipts were saved so off of that, I can tell everyone this.
    -New Turbo (Ptuning found the old to be bad)
    -TurboXS TMIC
    -TurboXS Downpipe (catted) and TurboXS rest of the exhaust
    -Exedy Clutch
    -Protune by PTuning for the supplied AP
    -All major service up to date minus timing chain

    Needless to say, I'm extremely happy to be back with a Subaru and cannot wait to have fun with it!

    And for final reference, an old pic of my 04 WRX
