    Ha yeah we did have a little snow but we need a little more now. That was just a dusting . But Scoot (aka wrx) is already rocking her winter Blizzaks. In the summer I am going to buy another set of rims and SPT exhaust.

    Trans Am not fully tuned made 520hp to the wheels and 490tq on 5 1/2 lbs of boost with belt slip. Put the 8 rib procharger set up on it and it made 7 1/2 was pullied for 8lbs but never finished tuning it before I sold it. Didn't have the time for it anymore.

    Welcome aboard! Haven't seen many DGMs in the sedan style - looks great. I went hatch DGM and have no regrets - I understand it is the fastest color.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on comparing the procharged V8 power to your new ride. Feel, handling, how the power comes on and how they make you feel. I went from a big V8 (5.9) to my WRX and it was definitely a change. Feel free to post your thoughts here or in the WRX v. World section.

    Good boosting!

    Well this car is definitely the best handling thing I have ever driven. Up to this point I have had a mustang and the trans am and a jeep wrangler for my daily. Obviously not the best handling cars in the world lol. The most thing I find different is the control. The trans am always made me nervous being a rear wheel drive car and not putting the power to the ground well. It usually blew threw the tires into 3rd with my 4.10 gears. So I love that I can get on this and not feel like going to go sideways immediatly lol. It's hard to compare a car that made 520hp to the wheels to 265hp at the crank . Boost wise the trans am with the procharger had very little lag at all as soon as it hit 4,000 rpms it went like a bat out of hell but I would never dream of doing any corners ugh body roll was terrible. I like how small the wrx is. I feel it's more my size lol. I'm not a very big girl so I always felt like I was driving a boat in the TA lolol.

    I moved 5 min from my job so I consolidated this to my daily driver as well. Ha I would never have dreamed of daily driving the TA the jeep was bad enough...the TA only got about 10 mpg on the highway. That was a good day lolol. If I would have finished getting it tuned I'm sure it would have been better but 60lb fuel injectors on a car untuned = super rich and really really bad gas millage.
