Hey everybody, new wrx owner, but a long time fan of Subaru. Yesterday I got my 2002 Subaru WRX and am absolutely loving it. This is just a post to introduce myself to everyone. I have read these forums many times before and have read the rules and other things like that.
Now onto my car. As I said its a 2002 Subaru WRX. The previous owner (and the only other owner) has modified it a bit. First off there is a VF48 Turbo that is in the 2008-2011 Sti's under the hood along with the Sti top mount intercooler. I am unsure of how many lbs of boost it is running now but the previous owner said it had around 290hp right now. It also has a Cobb intake, and 4pot Subaru front bakes and 2 pots in the rear. That is all it has performance wise I believe and then it has some other things like a head unit, speakers and other things like that. He also gave me 2 sets of wheels. Some Volt Racing wheels wrapped in a street tire, and some SSR wheels wrapped in a all-seasson. If you like I can check the brand of the tire if you're curious but as for specs both are 17 inch wheels with a 225 tire. Also, don't quote me on that Horsepower rating that's just what the last owner mentioned to me.
Okay so thats the car. Tell me what you think I should do as I just received the car (Take it to Subaru for an inspection?)
I'd also like to add that I am a 17 year old guy named Tucker from up in Northern Illinois. I am not some kid though that'll ruin the car, so please when I say I am 17 don't think I am some ricer that'll redline every gear and hoon my way around town because I don't. I drive the limit and keep it under 3k rpm's while driving around and try to be mature as possible.
So, that's it. I will add some pictures below of the car. I only have some crappy ones right now but I am aspiring in photography so expect a lot better soon!
