Smile First Post, First WRX

Hey Guys,

I've been quietly admiring every Subaru on the road for the last 10 years, this summer my finances were finally in order and I pulled the trigger on a brand new 2013 5 door WRX in satin pearl white, I love everything about it (that doesn't mean I don't have a list of mods in mind). Ive been lurking on these boards for the last 6 months while I was braking in the engine and learning how she drives.

I'm loving the Subaru community and I'm looking forward to learning more about the platform and seeing some of you on the road

Take care

My long term goal is to be reliable and drivable enough to cart around the family and be fast enough that the grin never goes away. suspension and brakes come first then the power mods all at once with the tune.

Brakes: drilled or slotted rotors, grimm speed master cylinder brace, replace lines with stainless and fluid swap

Suspension : white lines anti-sways kart boy endlinks and assorted bushings and hardware

Intake: Cobb SF or AEM ( still undecided )

Exhaust, SPT cat-back already installed may be switching out later but I enjoy the tone

Tune: Cobb AP for the foreseeable future, Eventually a pro-tune is on the list after the factory 36,000 warranty

Gauges: 2 pod gauge cluster A pillar mounted for boost pressure and oil temps

Wheels:??? i love the factory Rims today but that changes with the flavor of the week

Rubber: Bridgestone Potenzas
