    learning about these cars

    im new to the whole 4 cly turbo thing. right now i am the proud owner of a mustang, but im moving up north where a rwd car in the snow does me no good. now i have always like WRXs and figure this is the right time to buy on. but i need to know how to mod one. i have been trying to figure this out but there is so much i don`t kno. like is it useful to go to s steeper universal gear in these car? im guessing changing cams is out of the question? how hard is it to drop a tranny, i heard they break easy? im guessing there is alot of power to be found in a new turbo? and is there much hp in new BOVs? so my main question is what is the normal route to improving these cars out put? thanks for the help

    btw, is there alot of hp lost in the awd system?

    Welcome to the club. There is a ton of information to be found by searching, and in the sticky thread in the top of many of the forums. Check out these ones to start:

    about 20-25% drivetrain loss, if i remember right... making hp with one of these cars is about as easy as it comes, search around
