    03 wrx build

    Its pretty stock as far as performance goes, has some limited edition 06 sti seats in it, sticker bombed interior and a roll cage just for looks.... for now atleast. Looking for suggestions as far as mods, have a goal of 500-600hp out of it to have some fun.

    Do you have $15K to spend? If not, your goals are unrealistic...

    To get it to that hp goal is going to cost a lot of money. To maintain it there is going to cost a lot of money.

    What made you decide upon 500-600 hp? To clarify I'm not being dismissive, just looking for more info.

    You're better off selling your car and getting into a new platform. You'll have significantly more invested into the car than it's worth...

    Ha yeah right... closer to $25K

    We're talking about pulling the motor apart, sleeving the block, building the motor and top end, installing under-piston oil squirters, replacing the transmission, driveline, strengthening the subframe, etc.
