    Another Newbie Checking In

    Hello all,

    I am purchasing my wrb bug-eye sedan on Thursday and was referred to this site by the current owner. This will be my first Subaru, and I'm looking forward to sharing info and learning as much as I can.

    Here's the breakdown on my car: 2002 wrb sedan, Helix Up-pipe, Helix downpipe, Greddy Evo catback, kartboy hangers. Cusco rear sway, Cusco front and rear strut bars. Accessport running stage 2 93 map.

    The car has pretty much every factory option except the gauge pack, including auto-dimming mirror, armrest extension, factory sub, etc. 43k on the odometer, and I'm picking it up for $15,500 from a friend, so I know it's been treated very well.

    Anyway, that's it for now.

    Regards,

    -Ben

    You have a lot of good mods already. Your rex should run strong.

    Thanks for the warm welcome all! I plan on continuing the mods as money allows. Long term, it'll end up cobb stage 3, (whenever it's released,) with the vf34, sti injectors, fp, and tmic. As for suspension, a whiteline front bar, comfort alk, steering rack bushings, and either an eibach/agx combo, or possibly whiteline group 4 coilovers.

    Cosmetics will be an sti ver. 1 front lip, paint-matched stock side skirts, stock rear spats, and a set of gold 17" or 18" somethings, (either rota torques, downshifts, or possibly enkei rpf1 in the 18".)

    That'll probably about all it'll get, besides some gauges to supplement the stock ones, and maybe some audio/video stuff.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome, I look forward to getting to know you all better.

    -Ben

    *LOL* Yep, I've been doing my research on both the wrx and the evo for over a year now, trying to narrow it down. I guess the decision has been made, because I picked it up this morning.
