    Now you got my attention witht he ducati statement! My favorite bikes! Unfortunetly i had to sell mine to move back to new jersey =*(


    Also, i look at the hp and torque readings on subaru.com, now is that at the flywheel or at the wheels?


    http://www.xcceleration.com/sti.stagekit.430.htm is that "kit" any good? and is it worth it or would i just blow up my brand new car lol

    Welcome to the club.

    Here is my suggestion:

    1. Figure out what your goals for the car are going to be.
    2. Spend all your time between now and Christmas doing research. There is lot of info on this site.
    3. Once you get the car enjoy it for a while. It has a lot of hp and tq in stock form. Once you drive it you may end up changing your goals based on the seat time that you are getting.
    4. Do more research.

    depending on where you live, get some snow tires. number one choice. the stock re070's won't get very far in snowy conditions.

    then take about $10k of your truck fund and put it towards the car to lower monthly payments. lucky you getting your friends downpipe for free.

    Damn d00d!

    Well you've got that out of the way. Too bad you will not see anywhere near 1000whp with the Subaru.

    Have you heard of Corvette Lou from Englishtown by any chance?
