    Hello all, subie newb here

    Hello everyone,


    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!

    I believe they are Advans... Not sure which model. Have yet to look into that. I'm trying to get some window visors at the moment which are a pain to get though.

    www.gruppe-s.com for some window visors. I believe they are kind of expensive....

    I'm sorry but, what's up with the bugeye mafia? Could you PM me with some insight on them.




    As for the visors, eh I'm used to paying hundreds of dolors for crappy used items for the Honda, Buying something for the subie wont be so difficult as to putting up the dough.

    Subaru WRXes from 2002/2003 are nicknamed 'Bugeyes' for their round-shaped headlights ('04/'05's are blobeyes, 2006 are hawkeyes). Owners of these aforementioned cars have started up our own clans...the Bugeye Mafia and the Blobeye Syndicate (not sure if there's one for '06s yet). Anyways, if you would like to be part of the Bugeye Mafia, come over to the Bugeye Mafia thread and post up a sexy pic of your bugeye.
