    show me your wagon & i'll show you mine. lookin for ideas

    Hi guys...i'm a newbie here, but not to owning a scoobie. This is my 2nd scoob and i'm stuck on them. First one was a 2001 2.5rs sedan which i fixed up a bit and just sold last week. I've wanted a wagon for quite some time and now that i'm getting married and we plan on travelling around the states it was perfect timing.
    I'm hoping to get some pics posted on here to see what you WAGON owners have done to yours. I'll post things done to my car below. Glad to be here!

    That wagon is very nice. Its pretty much everything i want to do to mine. Where in Washington are you located?
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Need I even comment?

    OP your wagon is begging for the H6 rear brake mod.

    Thanks guys. Its a great car. Its tuned at 18psi, but i'm running her at 15 to save some gas. Its a DD so gotta keep it cool.
    Hey Zax rear brake mod for what? I dont rally this thing and it stops just fine with these calipers. I dont feel like chewing up rotors with to strong a caliper for nothing.
    Hey SKI.WRX do you have projector headlights? If so where'd you pick them up? I'd like to have projectors cuz the HID kit on my h/l is a bit to scattered for my liking.

    Nice Wagon. We have a Wagon thread here somewhere with all the wagons you could ever want. Is it an actual STI motor swap? I did see the VF turbo on there

    You shouldn't just turn boost down if you are tuned to 18psi. If you want to save gas, control your right foot. Turning boost up or down won't really affect that.

    H6 rear brake mod is simply an upgrade to the calipers to the late H6 Legacy rear calipers. Has nothing to do with rallying or what not. You swap the same size rotors with it (for a pretty cheap price). The WRX is HEAVILY biased towards the front for braking and changing to the H6 upgrade will shift some of that bias back to the rear...in essence you will stop yourself from chewing through rotors in the front by actually utilizing the rears like they should be used.

    Look up lightwerkz.com or theretrofitsource.com for proper retrofits of projectors. You shouldn't be running HIDs in the stock housings either.

    You increase power, plan on improving braking and suspension. Simple as that. FYR, the brakes on the 2002-2005 WRX are AWFUL.

    I'll look around for some wagon threads. Its not a swap. Just STI parts on the factory 2.0. That VF whistles beautifully and I have no issues with it. Thanks for the tip on the boost.
    Oh ok so the H6 rears are probably a bit stronger considering thats a much heavier car? Is it a direct bolt on or are their modifications necessary? I would totally be up for that when I get some time to do it.
    As for the headlights i'll probly do that next. These lights are HORRIBLE!
