    Just another WRX owner in Colorado

    hello, well I finally pulled the trigger the other day on a new WRX. I was looking at the EVO GSR and the WRX, but I decided that the WRX was just the best 'bang for your buck' car at 26k. I've played with DSM's for years and have a pretty nasty 500hp GSX, but I finally came to the conclusion that I needed a dependable daily driver. I love the new body style of the WRX's like I did in the mid 2000s & I couldn't be happier about the purchase. I'm planning on leaving her stock for a while until my warranty is up in a few years & then just doing some tasteful mods to get the Turbo sounding great and get around 300WHP.

    I'm excited to learn about the ins and outs of these cars as the reliability and performance seems to be top notch with these cars.

    you HAVE to get a cat in there. No amount of tuning, ethanol, etc can beat the denver test If you look on AWDPirates you'll be able to rent a downpipe from someone. Sometimes for free.

    thanks for your reply Sinister.
    damn! that's what I was worried about. thank you for the confirmation. so currently I am running Tanabe setup / straight pipe from the turbo back and no cat. can a cat be re-configured into the exhaust sys while still retaining the straight pipe? any recommendations on a shop in the D? thanks
