    Recently bought an '04 4EAT WRX

    I hope everyone is doing well, I recently had to part with my 94 Firebird Formula (Got married and also got a job that I need to drive all year round also couldn't get a stick otherwise would've gone STI). So I decided to get an automatic 2004 WRX. I have been very happy with the WRX thus far, outstanding car. I have been doing some research on the automatics and they seem to run a tad slower than the MT's from what I see. I've seen some claims that they run as much as 7.0 sec 0-60. I'm hoping it's not THAT slow....it certainly doesn't feel that bad.

    I have to say that this car feels just as fast as my Formula did. It does take a split second longer to spool up but once it gets going it moves like a bat out of hell. Anyways I was wondering if you guys could "steer" me in the right direction as to what Mod's I should do with this bad boy to get it "up to par".

    I just ordered my first mod last week, still waiting for it. I went with the Cobb Catback exhaust but it's on backorder so I have to be patient for "4-6 weeks". Anyways I appreciate any help from you WRX gurus! Have a great 4th!

    I'm sure others will say the same, but, just go to Stage 2 and you should be happy for some time. I think you'll need a whole TBE for that not just a cat-back and an Accessport.
