    Newbie Here! just bought a 2002 Subaru Wrx with TD05 Turbo

    Hi everyone,
    I just bought a 2002 Subaru Wrx with upgraded TD05 turbo, rebuilt engine with new up/down pipes.
    Any ideas on how to bring out the performance in this?

    Welcome!

    What do you mean "bring out the performance?" What do you feel is lacking?

    Calvinball - it's really not lacking anything, but i don't know anything! lol any recommended websites with info to better educate myself?
    Ruh Roh - thanks for the advice


    However
    I did find a problem with this car so far:
    -whenever i have the ac on, my voltage drops from 13.8volts to 13.4
    -while coming to a stop with the brakes applied the voltage drops to 12.5!!, there was this one time that the engine stalled!.
    -when i catch the voltage dropping low i turn off the ac and the voltage goes back to 13.7

    This condition happens quite often but when it doesn't the car stays on 14volts with no ac on and 13.7 when ac is turned on.

    i've heard that it might be the ac pully or ac clutch, but have anyone had this problem? is so is there any step by step solution?

    any help is appreciated. thanks in advance
