    Out with the 5.0 In with the WRX

    Just switched from an 85 5.0 to an 03' wrx and I'm definately stoked right now. I'm looking forward to having fun with this car, as well as a/c, heat, and a defroster!

    Welcome, my first car was a 86 Mustang, and I will always have a weak spot for any kind of fox body.

    I'm sure as you probaly noticed the wrx will give a carb'd and even FI stockish mustang a good run for it's money.

    ya, it was definately a fun car with some mods to it, comp cams, bassani x pipe high flow exhaust, but i opted for a more reliable car that still is a blast to drive and pretty quick, hopefully i can go cobb stage 2 within the next year

    So far I love it, I'm still getting used to the turbo and the different powerband but it's really fun to drive. I can't wait to get some suspension and tire upgrades.
