My car is a 96 SI and is giving me some hard times lately. Its got about 103K on the odometer and I am just getting tired of it. Ive been dying to drive a turbo car since I got my liscense in 97, but I still have never had the opportunity too.
I think the WRX will be a great pick for me, I always admire them when I see them on the road. My main concern (not putting a ton of effort yet into my search) is whether or not I am going to be able to mod this car and make it much faster than it is in stock form. I've been driving my lude for 4 years, and don't get me wrong, I think it is a great car... but I feel like with all I have put into it I still havent seen that much of an improvement. Nitrous, cams, milled head, intake, exhaust, clutch... and I think I am only running about a 14.1-14.3 from a 15.4.
Will I be disappointed with a wrx and its responsiveness? I would really like to be able to make it easily compete with a stock STi... is that too much to ask? How much do you think I would end up having to pay for a newer body style wrx?
Sorry for the run on... and thanks in advance for all the help!
