Ok, Ok, I have read threads about how, after getting the WRX, you get used to the power very quickly and it can seem slower after a while. That has happened to me...
I bought the WRX coming off a Civic HX, took it easy through the first 1K (welll, uh....i got on it a FEW times actually). Now it has 3K and over the last 500-1000 miles I don't feel that "punch" that I felt when I first got on it. The first time I was like "hell yeah...this thing PUNCHES on boost" now I'm like...."where's the power at"? Not that it feels slow, but just less punch.
Yeah I live in FL and it has gotten warmer...don't think that makes a big diff.
The new stereo won't help with added weight/sub box.
What are the realistic chances that something is wrong in the turbo/powertrain?
Perhaps I am just one of the people that will soon be in a 12-step program for addiction to mods?
Perhaps it is just the "butt dyno" getting used to things after the Civic, and I am crazy, need to think of my "happy place" and be held for a while?
This happen to a lot of people? (BTW I love the car, it's quick, and I get compliments/questions from random people at least once a week about it, unfortunately it hasn't been young redheads going "wow, nice blue color...can i sit in your lap while we cruise?")
