    LI, NY - New 2004 WRX Wagon 2/19/04

    I am picking up my new WRX Wagon on 2/19/04. I am looking to do some mods. Can any one tell which product is best for doing mods on a WRX '04? Any suggestions on where I can take it to have these mods done? I live in Suffolk County, Long Island.

    Thanks!

    Congrats on getting a wagon - you'll love it. As for mods...I strongly suggest you start searching and reading - there's lots you can do. I live in Suffolk too - what dealer are you going thru?

    TGYBE,

    Thanks for the reply. That's the problem, I have read so much that now I have too much information. What brand would you recommend? I heard Thomas Dodge Subaru does Prodrive performance packages. What do you think of Prodrive?

    I bought my WRX from Browns.

    Do you know of any another shops that would do mods in Suffolk County?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hey man, talk to Metric Subaru in Huntington. I know of NO other place that will tolerate mods, and Thomas Dodge will DEFINATELY void your warranty if you do things to your car. Go to metric and get the TXS system put in (stage 2 with up and down pipe/turbo back exhaust). You will be very happy with the added kick of the TXS down pipe, and metric guarantees the work their shop does. For what it's worth, prodrive is a good package with a great ECU system, but SOOOO overpriced it's absurd, and generally regarded as moderate in power gains.

    Timdog1650,

    I am taking your advice and going to have the TurboXS stage 2 w/up pipe installed at PrecisionTuning in Jersey. My concern now is passing emissions next year. Do you recommend any one who would be able to pass emissions with this mod? I guess a last resort is keeping the stock exhaust and having it reinstalled when inspection comes up. Let me know what you think?

    Thanks again for all your help,

    Well, to be honest with you, this is a question everyone worries about. If you warm your car up for about a half an hour before going into an emissions test, you should be able to pass, but you will fail a visual inspection, since there are no cats visible. Many people just save the stock parts and reinstall them....it's one of the main problems that plagues performance cars.
