Smile Moving to PR w/my WRX

What's up guys? Firgured that I might as well introduce myself. I'll be moving with my wife (she's from Caguas) to PR. I've been to PR a bunch of times since 1995 when I first met her in college here in the States. So it's no culture shock for me and I know what I'm in for (yeah I can't wait - I love PR )

We will be there for her brothers wedding in May and will move there shortly after. Not sure how old most of you are but I turned 28 a couple of months ago and she just turned 27. Hopefully you guys are big into racing (both track and strip).

Anyhow, my car has a few mods (turbo, exhaust, up-pipe, Unichip, wheels, suspension, and probably a few others things I'm not remembering right now).

BTW, I took two years of spanish in college and plenty time in PR so I speak some spanish but am unpracticed for now (sucks).

Later,
Todd

Hi Leo - those are Rota made replicas of the Racing Hart CP035's. I had them powdercoated in gold and have been quite happy with them so far. They're strong and fairly light at only 16.9lbs (17"). As far as suspension I have to say that I haven't spent a lot of time on that except for Intrax lowering springs and a 4-wheel alignment for Auto-X.

Later,
Todd

ProgWRX:

I've got a a TD04L stock housing bored to hell on the compressor side with a big, fat Garrett wheel and match ported to the up-pipe on the on the turbine as well as lots of material removed and polished on the turbine inlet and around the turbine wheel. It's really sweet looking and will have 1/4 times pretty soon.

Leonardo:

Yeah, a friend of mine has those wheels too. I bought the silver ones thru another supplier and had them powdercoated instead. I like the way the bronze looks but wanted more of a gold color

Well, anyway cool and can't wait to get there. I'm sure you guys are a blast. Lots of illegal street racing in PR and track racing all the same. Sweet!
