    New Subi owner & the forum

    So, After much decision. Not really, I knew a Subaru was the best in class. So, once my camaro took a dive I upgraded! I am now the proud new owner of a 2011 Silver Subaru WRX. I love the hell out of it. The throttle response, the NO turbo lag. It truly is an amazing car! I did a few things to it but, I really don't see much more to do. Maybe, when it's older ill do preformance upgrades... But, the 2011's have the lighter suspension, the new body kit.

    What was done:
    - SPT Exhaust
    - 10" Kicker
    - Wheel Locks
    - All weather mats
    - K&N Typhoon CAI
    - STI Short Shifter

    Simple right?

    What to be done:
    - Tint windows
    - Mesh grill for the hood scoop
    - Mesh grill for the lower part of the bumper, see pic. --> Click image for larger version.

    - Brembo breaks
    - Maybe, get a boost gauge
    - Maybe, Window Deflectors


    ---

    Any suggestions or idea's please let me know. Like I said, this is my daily driver, so, I will not be doing any performance mods yet.

    ... or keep the CAI and get a pro-tune for Stage 1. It will wake up your car significantly.

    Definitely if you are running a CAI tune that WRX or your love affair with the car will be short lived!

    Also get the boost gauge!
