Obviously I'm new here... I just picked up a 2006 Subaru WRX Limited with a 5MT with the short throw shifter. Black exterior with beige leather interior. 6CD in dash with the "premium" sound package (doesn't sound too premium).
I've only had it a little over two months, put about 3,000 miles on it. I had all the windows tinted: 22% on the visor and back 3 windows with 45% on the front 2. I also hard-wired my Garmen C330 GPS, Sirius Sportster (using fm transmitter though ), and my blue-light (I am a firefighter).
In the future I plan on doing the Hayward and Scott new age header, downpipe and scooby muffler. I am also going to have the exhaust ceramic coated and lined (where it can be). I'm also going to do some samco inlet hoses and a forge dump valve. When I get that done, I'll do the ECU remapping. I am actually in the process of gathering the info I need and setting aside the funds. Going to do that all at once and hopefully soon.
Afterwards, and down the road more I will probably do intercooler hoses, STi intercooler, STi hood scoop and suspension/wheels/tires.
Right now I want to swap my Sportster for the new Sportster 4 (just ordered it) and I want to get it really hard-wired to the stereo. Right now I haver the power hard-wired, but I use the FM transmitter. I want to directly connect it to the stereo. I also want to throw in my Adire Audio 12" Shiva sub and 500w phoenix gold amp that I had in my old car.
I live just northwest of Philadelphia in the suburbs. Moved here after college because thats where my job is. I am "the IT guy" for a small department in a pharmaceutical company by day, and I am a volunteer firefighter by night.
I stumbled across here because I am looking for information on how to do some of the things I stated above. Looked like a good-place to search for that information.
