I am currently deployed out of Ft Carson. Bought the 2011 WRX on leave and only got to enjoy it for one day before heading back here.

First Subaru, but resume includes:
93 240SX SE (KA24DE, AEM intake, Greddy Ti-C exhaust, ACT Stage 2, Tein full suspension, port n polish).
94 3000GT Vr4 (AEM EMS, AEM Meth injection, Greddy T4 turbos, Greddy Turbo back exaust, AEM Boost control and turbo timers)
and my Elenor, '85 Shelby Dodge Charger (completely stock).
And let's not forget my personal baby, 1990's M1A2 SEP V2 Abrams Tank (my true job in the Army for 13 years now).

I had a CRX Si for for as my first street car, but i'm slowly moving up. the 240 was destroyed when a guy ran a stop sign and i tboned him and the Mitsu was mishandled by an auto shop (they messed up putting in head gaskets ..... somehow) and my engine literally exploded at the gate of Ft Carson. This WRX will stay stock for a while....lol.

Look forward to meeting you all.

Thanks for the support. And, as ironic as that question is....yes, i have had many mods to the Abrams.

Reactive armor skirts (mainly C4 for backblast charge to RPG's), 5000lb underbelly plate for IED's, 3 panel balistic windows to the loaders hatch for extra protection and a .50 ontop of the main gain.....no literally, some ****ing genius made a mount to put a .50 Cal MG on the 120mm main gun and setup for the gunner to shoot it. Reloading sucks (Loader has to get all the way out of the turret and put up a new can of ammo) and god forbid you have a round jam/double feed.

interior mods include a hammock type thing for the driver to sit/sleep in while in his station. And we have rigged a 12v power adapter with power strip to run: coffee pot, ipod chargers and PSOne with flip screen for GT 1-3. You know, the basic essentials.

Engine mod is only one, difficult to explain but basically blocking one area of the air intake where debris gets past main intake and onto oil cool fans, so we blocked that off with simple cardboard and duct tape. works wonders.
