Well I have crossed into the Roo-zone. I am a big autosports enthusiast (except NASCAR), and I have been a huge fan of the WRX's since they were introduced. I have more experience with Mustangs, but they are impossible in the New England winters. (the 1990 and the 1966 in the signature are mine) So I picked up this blue 2002, 5 spd. WRX last week. I am already astounded at the way it handles and brakes. Since I modify everything I touch, this will be no exeption. Even though I don't want to sacrafice to much drivability anywhere, since it is supposed to be my "practical" car. I have already got a K&N panel filter and I'll be cutting up the silencer this weekend. So this is what else I want to do for now:
1. Boost & EGT gauges
2. Shifter (The stock one feels so dainty. Any suggestions?)
3. The ERZ up/down pipe combo on Ebay
4. MBC once the cats are gone (I'll try to keep the spike below 15psi)
5. Some appearance stuff like painting the side skirts, headlight bezels, and wheels/tires for the summer. And probably a good set of shocks, but I need to decided whther I'm going to lower it or not. Anyone stock height on 18"s?
Any other suggestions? Any other really worthwhile modifications you want to mention? I'll be searching around for a bunch of questions I have about suspension. The car seems very balanced and doesn't seem to have too much understeer. But I am used to higher HP RWD cars, so I kind of wanted to promote a little more oversteer because thats what I'm used to. Think a bigger rear sway bar would help with that?
Well I like the site and I look forward to talking with some of you. Thanks and i'll see you around!
