    new here '07 wrx wagon

    For those of you that have been here for ages, you've undoubtedly seen countless posts similar to the following:

    Hi, I'm new here, just purchased a black '07 wrx wagon. Personally, I wanted an STi, but marital compromise outweighed preferential ambition. I live in Seattle, and build scaffolding within the carpenters union. Listed here is what I've accomplished with my newfound love, and what is planned in the coming weeks:

    resonator removal - completed
    turbo gauge cluster install - completed
    Apexi turbo timer - in transit
    Invidia bell-mouth downpipe w/hi flow cat - on order
    Invidia G200 titanium tipped turbo catback - on order
    Cobb AccessPORT w/ stage II map - on order

    Once this is completed, I will begin focusing on upgrading suspension/brakes, then again onto engine performance etc. You know the routine.

    Its a pleasure to meet all of you, and thank you everyone's personal and knowledgable contributions.

    Hello and welcome to the club!

    The turbo timer is not needed on a WRX.

    Necessary? Perhaps not. Will it serve its intended purpose? Yes, on occasion. Does it look 'neat' to the passer-by? Of course!

    The water and oil cooled design of the turbo cools itself even when the engine is shut down.

    Oh yes. wagons provide the following:

    - Less attention from the cops
    - Much more of a sleeper
    - tons of room to haul schstuff....like a 27gallon Aircompressor, ramps, tools AND a set of tires!


    congrats. i hope we'll be able to offer answers to your quest for your perfect wagon.

    I thought I was going to stick with cobb stage II for a while. Well, here i am with bigger turbo and a 6-speed swap
    F4.21 have root access, will travel

    If you still have STi envy after you go stage II, you should look in to a VF 34 swap. Granted you'll be lacking the strength of the STi 6 spd tranny. I have VF 34 on my ej20 and I love it. So the VF 34 set up should be more than adequate on your 2.5L.
