careercadaver's wrx wagon...

Picked up a 2005 WRX Sport Wagon in San Remo Red over the weekend. Stoked to be back in a Subaru!! Had a B5 Audi S4 for a few months and before that a White GC RS Sedan. Drives a lot like the RS but the turbo's quite an upgrade to that set-up. 51K on the odometer.

Mods:

- Perrin Divorced DP
- Megan 3" Exhaust

Here's some pics as she sits. I'll probably play a little big here and there but it will be awhile before I heavily modify the car.


















Can't wait for coilovers and a decent wheel/tire set-up! Though I have few other priorities in front of all that. I'm running the OEM 16's with Continental ContiPro's that came on

Just ran a compression test that came out well, replaced the plugs while we had everything apart. Just bought a vf43, SPT Intake and I'm about to grab a 2" Perrin Uppipe in the next few days. A buddy has a fuel pump and injectors for me so this should come together rather quickly once I get everything collected. Goal at this stage is a conservative 300whp open source tune for a DD. I may track a few times but mostly a commuter.

Once the turbo is swapped it will get an open source tune. At this point I have a CEL from the catless DP so I'm running in limp mode and either way I'm not in boost at all until all that is situated. The concern is appreciated though. I know I should be tuned with what I have and it will only likely run this way for another week or two.

Very nice man. Low miles to boot. Congrats on the find. Cars like that don't come along that often around here. Look into the roof rack deletes. That would look amazing on it

This isn't BangBus Cullen. LOL

I kinda like the roof racks on vehicles, maybe I haven't seen many wagons without them.
