Help!! Possible Power Loss??
I have just become a proud owner of a slightly used 2002 Rex (42,000 KM or 26,000 Miles). The power on the car is great up untill about 6200 RPM, where the car seems to stop pulling (accelerating), but the engine still rev's higher all the way to the redline.
After reading articles and people's driving experiences I have come to the conclusion that the car is supposed to keep on pulling all the way to the redline.
I am wondering if there are any problems that may occur on a car with this type of milage. I know there are allot of knowledgeable WRX owners in this forum, so I thought it would be a great place to ask.
Does anyone know of any power loss problems that may occur? How to fix them, or things I could try? Am I just greedy for more power? Probably! But who isn't? If so what kind of mods can I start out with on my Rex to make it faster? And if I do will my warranty void (I bought an extended 5 year warranty on the car)?
Thanks in advance for any help.
