    Just bought my first 2002 wrx

    I just bought my very first 2002 wrx. I'm very happy with this car and even more happy to see what it can be but I do not know what to start with. It already has a turbo back full 3 inch exhaust. Idk what to do next should I go with things such as the Cobb access port and some of Cobb's performance parts. Also were I could possibly get a tune around michigan. I could ask questions for days throw any knowledge any of you have to give please and thank you!

    Congrats how many miles on the car. I would say get a catless up pipe if that hasn't been already done.

    It is already been done and 100k. You have a list of mods as far as stage one goes or even up to stage two without affecting internals. It just had new timing fluids all flushed. She purss like a kitten. New clutch as well its my daily but I still wanna have fun with it as a fun track car every once in a while. If I don't make sense my apologies this is my first forum as well.

    Thank you for the information and would you have any secure sites that sell any of the aftermarket parts offhand that may specialize in Subaru's

    Also thank you guys for not being mean for asking questions that may be obvious. I know that a lot of people could be mean. Also anyone from around Michigan or know of local meets and fellow subaru lovers and/or car lovers!
