Hey new to WRXtuners
 
Hey, how ya guys doing, Just purchased a 02' Black WRX, traded in my toy 01' honda s2000 for it, Its nice, turbo lag is a killer but its nice, any ideas on what i should do with 1700? I found rims, Enkei PK6's Black with Machined lip, I dont know the offset but does 17X7 5-100/114.38AM sound right? For a grand i get those and tires pretty good deal? What would you do if you had 1700, I want a rally bov, tein springs, and those rims, and what exhaust should I go with? and Im not getting into the whole CAI discussion.. read that thread, thanks for your time, and I hope this isnt anything like Honda-Tech

Downpipe is nice, I have the Helix and it is sweet. You can get the UP/DP combo for like $450 (30 WHP or so). I went from the DP right to the Cusco front/rear strut bars and Perrin rear swaybar with Perrin endlinks (should be here next week). I think the rear suspension is more of a wagon thing to do first. All the guys here are very helpfull so good luck w/your ride !Thumbs Up !

BIENVENIDO!! WELCOME!! With 1700 dollars you could get all those things you want except that the rims would have to be Rotas ([url]www.subydude.com[/url]), and they are REALLY nice wheels for the price. Personally, I went front/rear strut bars, TEIN coilovers, BOV, and UP/DP. Just look around some more... people have various ways of modding their car, but you will find two types: those that scream POWER mods first and those that lean towards HANDLING mods; I'm more in the handling side. As for rims, try to get 17x7.5 with nothing less than a 48mm offset (all the wheels at subydude fit us).

As far as exhaust goes, it all depends on if you want to heard and seen, or seen and not heard ;) I personally like the borla hush exhaust because of its stealthiness. I have a borla hush catback, perrin downpipe, and i'm probably getting a turboXS cast iron uppipe. I'm also installing a Cobb Acessport at the same time with a stage 2 flash. This will net the car 285 crank hp. With a pro tune it should net about 315 or so (or so the shop tells me)

Can you get me a sound clip/movie of the Borla Hush? I'd really really really appreciate it :D I'm looking to put it on my Wagon. I also like the stealthiness, and stock twin tip design.

my other choice will be the Bosal (SPT) single-tip CBE.

BiggSean 10-14-2005 02:14 PM

As soon as I get it on i'll try and get a good clip posted. I'm going to get everything installed next thursday probaby. I'll keep ya posted.

smores 10-14-2005 02:21 PM

cool :) I have found a lot of videos of people with N1-style exhaust, or other "fart cans". I know they sound a little better on WRXes than most 4-cyl cars, but I just can't stand loudness.

Gotta have the silent, but noticable rumble that opens to a roar at high speeds

BiggSean 10-14-2005 02:26 PM

My sentiments exactly.

Welcome!

Welcome to the forum bro, enjoy your stay. :)

For $1700, I would tell you to get an uppipe, 3" turbo back, and a Cobb AP. You'll be very happy with the results. !Thumbs Up
