First-time WRX owner with a couple of ?'s
He folks, glad to finally be an owner after being a member here for a while. First off, I just got my first WRX yesterday. It's an 04 with 59k miles. The paint and body need some work which is why I got it for a killer deal at $10k. I've never really been that worried about cosmetics, I've always been more worried about mechanics, which is why I bought this car. The list of items I have on it are as follows. There is a K&N FIPK short intake kit, TurboXS BOV, sport springs, larger aftermarket front and rear sway bars, upgraded clutch, STI exhaust and an HKS Turbo Timer. My questions are, 1: Is there anyting that should be taken off or replaced for now until I start seriously tuning it, 2: I've read a lot about turbo timers and it seems that most people don't like them for some reason, why is that, are turbo timers just useless to have on etc? Any more info would be greatly appreciated. This car doesn't have as much raw power as my Mustangs before, but once that turbo spools up, it's off we go and the car feels like it's absolutely on rails, even at high speeds in the corners. This car is mechanically in VERY GOOD shape. I think I made a good purchase. What do you think? Thanks for your input and help.
