    New Subaru Owner

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Jessica and I'm new around here and new to Subaru's as well. I purchased a 2012 WRX Premium about 3 weeks ago and joined here in hopes of learning more about it. I'm not new to cars or racing, I currently own a low 11 second 1998 Eclipse GSX. I've always loved and preferred Mitsubishi's, but the new body style WRX's really caught my eye so I decided to pick one up as something else fun to drive around everyday as the GSX had become impractical for daily driving. My plan is the keep the WRX stock (or at least relatively stock), but we'll see how long that works out for me. So far I really love driving this car.

    Here is a not-so-great picture of the new car while it was still on the lot:



    And a picture of the GSX:



    Look forward to meeting some of you.
    - Jessica

    That Eclipse is a 11 second car? It has sleeper written all over it. I like.

    Enjoy the new car, and my money has you modding the car - at least a little - pretty soon.

    Welcome!

    Cherry Hill Subaru eh? I work 10 min from there!

    Those GSXs are major sleepers if done right! I had a buddy with just a GST who ran low 12s after he did some work including a turbo swap. It pulled!

    Definitely is a sleeper. 11.2 @ 126 is my best time so far, though I think I could could crack into the 10's with a change in tune.

    That's probably a safe bet. I once told myself I would be happy with the Eclipse when I got it in the 13's...

    Yeah, Cherry Hill was the only dealership in the area that had a WRX in stock! I actually live in PA - work in Philly and live about 30 minutes north of there.

    Geeze...11.2 is money. What mods do you have done??? Turbo upgrade I assume...

    Nice...I live in good ole Manayunk, but only for another 6 months or so til I move back to NJ to be closer to work. Go figure: lived in NJ, worked in Philly (CC). Now I live in Philly, got a job in NJ. Duh.

    Yeah, the turbo is an FP 3065. It has a fully built motor with BC 280 cams and it's tuned with DSM Link (I'm sure you're not familiar with this as it's a DSM only tuning program). There isn't much under the hood that's not stock, so I'm not going to list everything. It would take me all day haha

    DSM Link is much like our open source. We have heard of it.
