Default Michelle's '04 Subaru WRX STi

Well.. Finally I have joined the dark side HAHA!

I've been stalking the threads for a bit now, and thought i should probably post something

about 3 months ago i said "bye bye" to the swift and HELLO to my '04 Subaru WRX STi. I think I got a bargain, she is in VERY good condition. 2 little spots, absolutly fantastic for a 9 year old car.

Can't think of anything better.. She is pretty Stock, though there are a few things other people have told me are modified.

So far;
- 3 inch exhaust
- Air Panel Filter
- King springs not too low for me to struggle to learn to drive it
there has been a few things that people have mentioned to me but im not that mechanically minded to type it into a thread HAHA! - maybe one day... right.

I took my car down the drags after i bought the car and ran a 14.1 I'm determined to beat my PB!!

here are a couple of photos to share, Definitely more to come!!

Thanks.

I'd actually be interested in finding the previous owner, to know what actually has been done to it... unfortunately I was unable to "Facebook stalk" because there is no surnames on any receipts, but if there is a Jake out there :P haha

haha for now i just want to get some gauges installed

umm if I save up some money and the boyfriend get a hold of it he wants to get a front mount intercooler?

from what we have sussed out ( i could be very wrong...) but its got either a new ECU or a plug and play? ( im not sure if these are the same thing or what but its all a huge learning curve for me) HAHA

ye i want to sort some gauges out as well but there so bloody expensive, for 3 and a gauge pod installed at least 1K probably a bit more haha, at the moment im just saving for a tune but so torn between Ecutek at MMS or Verso at ASG especially with the $500 price difference.

Dont get a front mount. Waste of money time and effort on a standard turbo.
