I am not a new member, but since I never really got to introduce myself to everyone before I thought that I would give it a shot. Plus I love whoring pics of my car out.
I am an MRI Tech from around Pittsburgh in Western Pa. I regularly try to hit up the Flashlight drags that they have around here and I am going to try to get to a couple of Auto Cross events this summer.
I have a 2004 WRX that had some work done to it before I got it. The dealership wasn't even sure. I bought it last October 2005 with about 12K miles:
What I knew it had so far:
Blitz NUR-Spec Catback
I had to reinstall the exhaust cause the dealership convinced me to let them put the factory exhaust back on. What a mistake!!! When I did my exhaust swap I found that the previous owner had done a turbo swap as well and installed a VF30 with STi pinks
Fast forward to now. Here it is:
The Rotas are in storage and the stockers with snow tires are on for the winter.
Got to the drag strip to mess around some before I got tuned. This was the best run:
I suck at launching or the times would have been better. It was my first time at the track.
In October I got a Protune and ended up with 310 whp and 275 wtq on a Dynapak.

Back in September the bug to get an STi bit me so I started looking for one that I could afford. With some help from Vern I found one, and traded in my WRX for this car right here!
She had 83K miles on her and needed a little TLC from the dent wizard and the detailer. I had a couple bumps to overcome initially with belts and batteries, but once I got over that I have been loving this car. It is by far a much better choice than my WRX ever was.
