    New guy stationed in Georgia

    Hey all! First of all I want to say it seems like a great community here and I love the layout of the website itself!

    Now that I'm done brown-nosing...a lil about me: Name's Dave, 26 years old, in the US Air Force in Georgia and bought my car 2 weeks ago.

    I assume most of you figured it out by my username, but I have a 2005 Subaru WRX with 60,000 miles. Black with black rims. Some mods from previous owner and I'm trying to get it back into good shape after the previous owner.
    Mods:
    Invidia 3" cat-back exhaust (hanging on by a coat wire in the back) [previous owner]
    Cold Air Intake (couldn't see the brand on it) [previous owner]
    BOV (unknown brand) [previous owner]
    20% tint all the way around w/ visor tint strip.

    it was missing 2 front speakers, 1 of the belts was the wrong size and started squeeking a week after I bought it, CD player had all sorts of scratches on it and the fluids were very old.

    My mods:
    Complete fluid change all the way around ($700)
    Brand new wearEVER brake pads and rotors all the way around ($200 total)
    Pioneer speakers front, rear, and Pioneer deck from BestBuy ($250)
    New belts ($25)
    Clamps for proper exhaust placement and make sure it's secure ($5)
    NGK spark plugs and wires ($60)

    Soon: Small subs just for a little bass for my music
    New Rims (current ones have a lil damage from previous owner)

    I'll get some pictures pretty soon!

    What wires with the spark plugs? There are no wires. If you have wires your motor is not the original EJ205. It could be fancier?

    I had to special order them when I bought the spark plugs. I'll post a picture tomorrow when I actually install them.

    haha well I'm just getting here a few weeks ago so I'm still waiting to find out how bad 'the suck' is here. I am pretty happy with my car, though! I do want to get a Cobb tuner from a friend of mine orrrrrr should I just go get dyno tuned somewhere? If I get the dyno tune, how much would it cost and any idea where the nearest one is?
