    finaly own an RS, pics

    hey there . man . i love subaru's forever and wanted an rs so bad from the year 2000 to 2001. i found one at a local dealer and couldn't pass. handles so good and nice power too. for now. i def want to make that hood scoop functional; intercooled. u know how we do. so anyways here is a pic of it with niteshades on the hideous oarnge parts.also an intake i made because i couldnt find a cold air for this car so i went to a semi junkyard and made this part and slaped a coat of paint and a spt decal on it that my buddy made. have since found cold airs tho nice site. x2

    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.

    Yeah, I've had it about 14 months, it's a 2001. I haven't really done much to it other than a rear sway bar and tires (azenis sport in the summer/ winter tires on stock wrx wheels).

    A great place to get a few items is ...

    Scroll down to the "FHI 20mm Rear Sway Bar And Bushings" That is what you want. You can spend more on adjustable bars and stuff, it's not necessary though.

    Yup, engineering school was tough, but I got a great job.

    ok so i checked out that site for sway bar and saw the front and rear strut bars as well. and the front sway bar. wondering if anyone got these and noticed much or is it not worth it. also found this bar under the rear seat. some form of sway bar right?? its gray and inside the car under the seat. (just tried to post a pic but took it in high res. and too large)

    the bar under the rear seat is the strut bar. sway bars are underneath the car.
