    New Blaze Yellow 2002 WRX

    Sup Everyone,. my name is Julius although I'm easily remembered by "Juice"

    Just recently purchased my Subie about 3 months ago.

    Ill post a photo of when i first got my car with hot pink wheels,. in which i was okaye with driving around in because it was "Breast Cancer Month". Although as soon as the month was over i quickly got new wheels and tires. Since purchasing my Subie,. ive done way to many mods then i expected to do but i'm happy as well as frustrated. I'll explain my story later. But First,. Pictures!

    LOL @ the wheels!!!! I would have changed em as soon as I [financially] could.

    Did you end up finding a buyer? Not that I want them, just curious if someone else really would.

    Now My Story;

    I Adopted this Subie which came with 326 hp and 18 pnds of boost. Besides wheels and tires.. I've applied a HKS BOV, Blitz TT, .... My Bug Eye came with a stage-2 clutch and a short shifter, but I blew that clutch out the day that I went out and played in the mud (pic). Clutch was slipping already when i first got it anyway. Soo... I went ahead and upgraded to a Stage-4 Exedy Twin Disk and added a Agency Power Clutch-Line. 6 days later.... I shattered 2nd gear when doing a 20 roll. Got that replaced with a new set of gears. 3 weeks go by for break in and just 3 days ago I shattered my 1st Gear at a light!!!

    Currently the car sits,. I'll be going ahead and advancing to a 6-Spd swap, so if anyone can help with where I can purchase a JDM STi 6-Spd transmission i would greatly appreciate it!!!! and a link to a install.

    thanks in advance!

    Please remove these mods until you research enough to realize how poor of a choice every mod you have listed has been for your car.

    Sorry but not to be a jerk, like zack said remove those pointless mods as they give you no benefit.... As for the upgraded clutch, driving it like a jackass and having a heavy duty clutch is just going to f$&k up your transmission as you have more than once (I would've learned after the first time if I didn't research first)...

    Sounds to me like you may be trying to push more ponies than your drive train can handle. Many people forget that you can't just build power and expect it to turn your car into a rocket.

    Even with a beefier tranny you will probably start to break axels and burn up your differentials. Maybe look into upgrading the rest of your drivetrain components before worrying about the dyno. From what I understand, anything north of 300whp on a wrx stock drivetrain is asking for trouble.

    Looks like sonic yellow (my preference over blaze).

    I doubt this has anything to do with horsepower. A stage 4 clutch and driving like an ass is likely the cause.

    Do you have any personal experience or is this hearsay? I happen to run north of 300whp on the stock drivetrain. It's all in how you drive the car.
