Default Perrin BugEye15K: Project $15k, Bug-Eye Budget Build





PERRIN Performance and NASIOC are happy to be assembling what we feel is a great project for many Subaru enthusiasts, both new and old to the WRX scene. We understand that many Subaru enthusiasts are looking to have fun, improve performance and still be able to drive the car daily all on a budget. Thankfully for many NEW people to Subaru the early 2002-2004 WRX models have now fallen to purchase prices that most people can now afford. Our goal here is simply to show what people can do with one of theses early examples of the WRX on a budget of $15k (including car)

Yes it went a little over budget, but we wanted to test and show a few things. You got to see what our equal length header does on a 2.0l. You got to see what the 2.0l could do on stage 2 with OEM cats for street legality. Then we put together a complete stage 4 for Evo and STI type power.

We also got lucky because the car we chose for this came with lowering springs, a 3" exhaust and a fresh clutch. That right there saved us $1k-$1.5k.
