New to the Forum.
 
Hey guys I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I bought my first Subaru in January of this year, and its a 2002 PSM WRX Wagon. So far it has a turbo back exhaust, Cobb SF Intake, Mishimoto IC hoses,Cobb Stage 2 LWG OTS map, and I have a invidia up pipe waiting to go on. Non Performance mods are kartboy front and rear shifter bushings, license plate relocation kit, Rota formal wheels, and a white Cobb Shift Knob.[IMG]http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums/ag223/WRXWagon24/Mobile%20Uploads/8E067BEE-465E-4B85-9C3D-2885E2F184F4_zpsu2wato7l.jpg[/IMG][/URL][URL=http://s1369.photobucket.com/user/WRXWagon24/media/Mobile%20Uploads/9F7E2529-1C5C-4723-B5C1-8EC61845EA92_zps2jpt1j6j.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums/ag223/WRXWagon24/Mobile%20Uploads/9F7E2529-1C5C-4723-B5C1-8EC61845EA92_zps2jpt1j6j.jpg[/IMG][/URL][URL=http://s1369.photobucket.com/user/WRXWagon24/media/6db32c8a-c131-431f-ab65-b35aeacd6e7c_zpsdf60b277.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums/ag223/WRXWagon24/6db32c8a-c131-431f-ab65-b35aeacd6e7c_zpsdf60b277.jpg[/IMG][/URL][URL=http://s1369.photobucket.com/user/WRXWagon24/media/52b33865-d72e-47f3-ac19-ee70f7ac246f_zps8208ba53.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1369.photobucket.com/albums/ag223/WRXWagon24/52b33865-d72e-47f3-ac19-ee70f7ac246f_zps8208ba53.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

Yes I want to do the sedan fender swap but the rear end is a time consuming process so I might just do the front then wait a while to do the rear. my front passenger fender has some slight hail damage so instead of paintless dent repair I plan on just swapping the sedan fenders.

Very nice looking wagon!

Is that HKS exhaust in the back?

pzr2874 05-12-2014 06:14 AM

One of the cleanest around. Welcome.

How is the suspension holding up?

wrxwagon24 05-12-2014 10:03 AM

It's an SRS catback that was on it when I bought it. The struts were replaced about 15k ago with KYB GR 2 all the way around. After this uppipe install I'm gonna focus on suspension, new sway bars, end links, lowering springs etc

I see that you reside in Missouri. I'm about an hour south of St. Louis, are you anywhere close to me?

Nice find on the turbo. I get on craigslist all the time looking for parts. You're lucky I didn't find it first. lol

Right, now I'm on there looking for an sti tmic, and then it will be injectors and then its all going on and getting tuned. Pretty stoked. Since your in MO do you every make it to Gateway for Midnight Madness?

It is pretty difficult for me to make it to events like that because of my children but may try sometime. I would love to see some Subaru's there and what times they are running. I saw that intercooler on there and thought about calling on it but really don't need to spend the money right now. I hope it works out for you. Where do you plan to have your car tuned?

Theres quite a few nice Subies out here, and I'm really debating on calling him to see how much I can haggle him ha. I'm thinking most likely E.T. Tuning out of Union. They've done a lot of rubies and have an awesome shop car thats a 98 impreza wagon with an STi swap in it.
