Hello all, this is my first post here on clubwrx, so just an introductory and a lil about myself. First off, my name is Matt, I live in western Maryland and have so for the most of my life, I currently drive a 2011 WRB hatchback WRX. But I have been in the subaru world for quite some time. Started back in 2007 with a brand new impreza 2.5i SE 5mt. At the time, I loved the car. Not really knowing much about cars at the time I decided to start modding away on my mighty mouse(huge waste of money on an n/a subaru, learned the hard way.) After a little over a year of owning it I had done, an injen cai, full exhaust with uel headers, pnp intake manifold, intake manifold spacers, throttle body spacers, coilovers(cheap ebay ones, never made that mistake again either), wrx seats, ebay front lip painted to match car, accessport, seibon wrx style carbon fiber hood, spt short throw, kartboy exhaust hangers, and a protune. I also installed all of these parts on my own, a good bit of trial and errorNow, I'd be lying if i said it wasnt pretty impressive for a 2.5 liter naturally aspirated suby, but the numbers it put out on the dyno tune...... well lets just say, nothing to write home about, and now I am on my 3rd wrx I realize my money actually now puts out some gains in power and torque. LOL. Sorry i would post pics of the old 2.5i, but i cant find any.
So, none the less, after doing loads of research on nasioc, I realized it was time to upgrade to a wrx. I returned my 2.5 back to stock and sold every part that i could. A few months later I found the car I wanted. A 2006 OBP wrx in mint condition, bone stock, with only 60k miles on the clock. Here are some pics, I did reuse some of the parts from my 2.5i, like the spt short throw and the seibon hood. So sorry none of these pics were pics of the rex in stock form, but after I had modded it to my liking. It had an invidia TBE, perrin SRI, ebay front and rear strut tower braces, perrin 22mm rear sway bar with adjustable endlinks, momo shift knob, kenwood in dash touch screen dvd player w/ gps, ksport kontrol pro coilovers, accessport and stage 2 map. I loved this car!
