    First time WRX owner - 2014 WR Blue Pearl Limited Sedan

    Hi everyone,

    I'm three days into owning my WRX and have loved every second of it. Having driven traditional family sedans as my daily driver for the last 8 years, this is a pretty exciting change for me. Though I am new to Subarus, I'm not new to the turbo AWD scene. I recently sold a 1992 Eagle Talon TSi AWD that my buddy and I had built for road racing. It was a lot of fun. The WRX is like a tamer, more reliable version of it. I spent a lot of time on this site while researching before purchasing the car, but thought since now I now own one it was about time for me to start posting.

    Welcome! Enjoy it! Have any ideas on mods yet. I'm personally trying to stay away from any engine mods till after my warranty is up... We will see if that lasts How much work was done to the talon if this is tamer lol?

    I'm in the same boat, trying to avoid any mods that would void the warranty. I'd like to get an AP and crank it up. Before purchasing the car I was highly considering the Q300 catback exhaust however I've been pleasantly surprised with the factory exhaust on this car, I may end up leaving it as is for now. The Talon was basically rebuilt from the ground up. It ran 28psi on a FP 68HTA turbocharger and dyno'd at 333awhp/329ft lbs at Topspeed in Atlanta. It wouldn't have been hard to throw a bigger turbo on there and up the power, but a quick spool was important for autocross and road courses. Coilovers and all of the other fun suspension mods. It was an absolute blast to drive at the Tail of the Dragon.

    I thought I could sneak by without a pic of the car. I was wrong.
