    New(er) car: 2002 WRX with lots of mods

    Started a new job recently and finally got approval to go get a car by the bank. I knew I wanted something for the NY winters (since they kinda suck) and also fun too, so an Impreza came to mind. Ran across this on ebay and bought it on the 14th. 300 miles was well worth the trip for this piece:

    Long list of mods to go with it but that's for another thread Now, for the guys on here who have some experience, I need some help on what I'm gonna do with this thing. Right now it's sitting on about 300HP+ at the crank....I won't be able to dyno it for some time. The 6 puck clutch beats the snot out of the engine and I have the stock clutch/flywheel with the car. Would that support this much abuse? I want something easier to drive for the snow and doesn't hit the engine so hard when taking off from a light.
    Leave later, drive faster, still get there first.

    Definitely. Looking for an OEM clutch or Stage1/2 part pretty soon to make the thing a little easier to manage.

    So finally got the plumbing off the front end to find below...intercooler has a hole in it and was sucking water along with the turbo blowing oil....quit a mix. Got everything cleaned and the turbo on its way home this week. Will have some better pics once everything is said and done.
