Excuse me while I whip this out...

Just a general intro:
06' WRX TR, drove it for a year just freakin' loving the crap out of it. Have a background in American muscle (There's no replacement for displacement.) Learned that power:weight with forced air is MUCH better. Recently did the short shifter and bushings. Also got the SPT performance power package. When that wasn't enough I got the COBB AccessPORT and flashed to stage 1 93 octane. God I love this car. Next up is downpipe so we can be stage 2 93 octane. been eyeballing the COBB stage 3 suspension but read enough to want coilovers instead of just springs. 35,000 miles and I want more!

nothing is ever enough. ever. I am stage two with a shit ton of bolt ons(flywheel, pulleys, etc. etc.) but I am already making plans for my new turbo set up.

remember though when making decisions on tuning for your ride. flow is power, now boost(props to lil shoaf)

Plan on stage 2 shortly. Then turbo upgrade after researching fuel system. I would like to do suspension mods as well, make it handle as well as it runs. Read a lot about sway bars and coilovers making a HUGE difference. Then maybe some aesthetics: wheels and tires, STi spoiler, tint... Did I mention I love this car?

I have considered the tranny. Might be able to score an STI 6. But never heard of a PPG, so research is in order...
