My name is Mario, I live out in beautiful southern California. And I just recently purchased a used 2003 WRX wagon. I've been around the import scene for quite some time now. And have been with "Honda" for the past 5 years or so. I'm a proud owner of a 1991 Honda prelude
Which is currently out of commission due to an extensive engine swap. These Honda's are the bastards of the family and nothing will simply "bolt" on so it's a mission. One that I'll be proud of.
Being as I'm a single father with full custody of my 3 year old son I needed something better then my 2003 windstar to haul him around to car meets and such. So I went out to look for a used car. Something simple and easy on the eyes.
Drove by this used car lot and saw this
After negotiating the price for a few days with the guy.. she's at my house now and I love her. First test drive wasn't tooo impressive though, she was only boosting .04 MPa's so I figured a boost leak after speaking with a few other people about it (I'm an NA guy)
Well after I found it she boosted to .08 MPa's which is what the boost controller is set at. But wow what a difference.
She came with those wheels, Tein coil over setup.. Not sure which yet since I haven't removed the wheels to figure it out.. HKS turbo back exhaust setup, HKS turbo timer, HKS boost controller, HKS high flow intake.
Considering I'm in southern Cali and emissions here... I plan on an STi drive train setup, upgrade the clutch and fly.. Larger injectors and build the block. Then turn up the boost... I would love a 300Awhp daily driver... But until then she has to wait until the prelude is done!
