    Talking New Bugeye Owner Here!

    hi all! new to the scoob scene, but not the import scene lol. im currently deployed so i dont have any pictures to upload yet but i just purchased an almost stock bugeye ('02 MBP) and have been ordering parts like crazy to get it where i want it for now, so far this is what i have:
    -Cobb Accessport V2
    -Cobb catback exhaust
    -CNT Racing catless downpipe
    -OEM STI catless uppipe
    -Samco intercooler Y-Pipe
    -Perrin adjustable short shifter w/ bushings
    -Kartboy knuckle ball shift knob
    -Autometer NV Series Boost Guage (Matches OEM Gauge Cluster)
    -Tein S-tech lowering springs (dont hate, the previous owner put them on)
    -17x8 Drag DR31 wheels (White)
    -v7 STI grill (Paint Matched)
    -v7 STI hood scoop (Paint Matched)
    -USDM bugeye headlights (koji mod)
    -Pioneer AVH-P3400BH head unit

    Once i am stateside i plan to install everything, plasti-dip/dye interior black (along with any other shiny parts, badges etc), intake silencer removal, install new speakers/tweeters and small sub/amp combo

    i figure this should be perfect for a dd for now, and once i decide i want some more power i plan to do the following:
    -VF-39
    -TMIC/FMIC
    -Fuel Pump
    -Injectors
    -Coilovers
    -Big Brake Kit

    ive read a whole lot on all the wrx forums so hopefully i can refrain from the retarded noob posts for the most part lol. nice to join your forum here!

    Well....there's a lot of people here(read, most) that have uber modding skills. But just swapping my up pipe and timc hoses with no tune yet made my car go from hey, fun to holllleeeee #!$@ with a few hours of busted knuckles. Totally worth it, every bit. My butt dyno is appeased, and the misses is appeased( rolling at 24+mpg and cheaper insurance than my camaro for whatever reason).

    Here's hoping for 325! I have no idea if that's realistic or not but you have a nice list of go Hella fast!
