    New owner / looking for NEPA owners

    Just purchased my 02 WRX (traded in my Dodge Stealth - damn, I loved that car). Was wondering 2 things:

    Anyone in the NEPA (that's Northeast Pennsylvania) area visit the forums?

    What should the first mod be? On the DSM's/3SI's its a manual boost controller (DSM) or Y-Pipe (3SI), but I've read a bunch about putting the piggyback computer on.

    Just wondering.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Thanks for the tip. I've been looking at a Borla cat back, boost guage and manual boost controller. Will need to stop driving so I can get a baseline datalog first ;0)

    Check out the Mid-Atlantic forum.

    I recently moved from East Stroudsburg to Wharton (off of Exit 34 on I-80) to be much closer to work

    New Owner too.
    MY2005 WRB WRX WGN in Allentown. Not Northeast but not too far.
    I too was looking around for the possibility of a clublike social thing.
    Not necessary but nice.

    Best to All,
