I just was lucky enough to buy a 2006 WRX wagon in silver. I just bought it today about 6 hours ago or so. i have never owned a a suby before or a turboed car, i owned two hondas and a ford. i'm still very new to the car scene and learning to modify stuff so i will probably have a lot of "dumb questions" but i would rather ask it and look dumb then mess up my car. I drove 3 hours to pick it up and 3 hours back to bring it back home and in the 3 hours of driving i loved every second of it. I love having the space of the wagon and it has 86,000 miles on it. When i brought it back to get it inspected in my state it didnt pass, needs two new CV boots ( i think thats what they are called, not the most mechanically inclined person but i love to learn about cars and what things do.) So they said i should have to back tomorrow morning good as new. I have a few questions if you guys could help me out please and thank you.
1. What else should i be worried about with 86000 miles on the car? i've heard timing belt can cause problems? It's going to a reliable family mechanic friday and is there anything i should tell him to keep an eye out for?
2. Can the stock fuel system handle the cobb stage two kit? or should i upgrade it before? i mean i've never owned a turbo car before as previously stated and i don't want to damage anything. I've also been told fuel is a big issue with turboed cars need to keep them fueled and all, properly.
3.I drove my friends 2011 STI when he had it and the transmission (shift knob?) shook on that, it also shakes (the transmission shift knob) in my WRX im guessing that's normal? i'm so not used to it the car i drove previously didn't shake at all. i'm guessing because its AWD and/or more solid?
4.Also for having 86k miles the clutch feels really stiff, maybe its just me or i'm not use to it and such. I can't really tell if its aftermarket or not. I don't know it could just be me.
5. I reserve the right to have more. LOL
Cobb Stage 2 kit, Cobb intake, Cobb Sway bars, Rally Light bar with some LED lights, Roof Rake with some more lights. mud flapps. I need some wheels these messed up but i need some more research before i get some any good suggestions? i like the STI wheels alot. Eventually brembo brakes hopefully, i would love to but god knows i need some $$$$ for that lol.
Thats all i got for now. im sure after exploring the forums i will get more.
