ok so i have been approved by the bank for the 2006 wrx i have been looking at and i am picking it up within the next few days i just have a couple of questions about them.
im just wondering if they have any little quirks like my speed6 did?...like if i try to boost at too low of an rpm to i get a shit load of knock and detonation, (Not with a decent tune... sometimes even stock will be ok) or if i dont let the turbo heat up for a few minutes first is it going to fry the turbo seals or damage the turbo in any other way (This goes for any charged car, just don't go about 2500 before it's warmed up)...same with cooling down do i have to let it cool down for a few minutes to avoid damage? (if you drive the hell out of it, then a minute will not hurt, I know some may tell you otherwise) do wrx's have serious misfire issues like the speed6's? (No, but it depends if a pack or plug is bad, speeds are bad because of the DI) do these cars ever blow white smoke after removing cats? are there any mods i need to buy right away so i dont destroy my car? (Get a tune or an AP) (on the speed 6 if you didnt buy that rear motor mount before you started modding anything else you would have serious problems, or replace the intake right away because of how restrictive it is) (Leave the stock intake on till you are ready for a bigger turbo) sorry for the huge array of questions but i just want to make sure i dont mess this car up at all it has to last me a few years atleast.
thanks in advance for any help or advice.
