    First time WRX owner, SWP STi...

    Bought the car late last week, and love the thing. It had been several years since I sold my turbo fox body Mustang, and have been itching for boost again.

    Have always been a huge fan of these cars, so I pulled the trigger.

    Looking forward to learning more about these great looking, great performing cars.

    Good looking car! Welcome to the club!

    I think the black vinyl/plastidip on the hood scoop is a little much though. Did you do the black accents or did it come like that from the previous owner?

    Here was my last turbo bucket. Not much of this car was still stock when it was done, but the goal of building an 8 second street car was acheived. Ended up selling it shortly after my divorce.

    It now resides in South Carolina, is making around 985whp and doing well in grudge match drag racing.

    Lol...yeah, that was a fun car. Doubt I'd ever do another build to that degree, but money aside, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
