    St. Louis Metro East, on the Illinois side, but not the really bad Illinois side, but also not the really good side.

    Advice: Slow down and enjoy your car a little before you start tearing it apart. get to know the vehicle so you can figure out what you want to change first. Also, don't worry about the numbers game, aka "400 club."

    I know that wasn't the mechanical advice you were looking for, but that's just my .02

    I admire your determination, and welcome!
    That being said, what is your background with high-powered cars? Rwd, fwd, or awd?
    Also, plan to beef up the tranny with your build, as well as braking components. Launching 400awhp will do a number on a wrx tranny, or even driving it spiritedly.

    My back ground is red street cars I have always been a cobra guy but every since seeing what an awd car can do both on the drag and the street I fell in love! And after seeing my buddy's wrx bug eye I knew I had to have one. So my car was carefully thought out and I had to go with the wrx!!! And as far as slowing Down to in joy and get to know my car I am learning Moore and Moore each day talking. With my tuner at Cobb and other good people on here as we'll as locals. However the 400 club I mentioned is a goal not a standard of mine I have no entrant ions of tearing into this car in the near future I will be a motor build and I am about to do an sti tranny swap and full break setup since this is my dd I want and need it to last .... But mechanical or other advice is GREATLY appreciated so please don't hold back you .02 guys and galls

    Welcome. You could buy a brand new car by the time you make 400whp on one of these little WRX's. And then buy one again every time it breaks, which it will break often with that power. The WRX is just not a high horsepower car. Although, people do it. So, good luck with it.
