Unhappy Getting used to the power....

OK is it me or what that after the initial power up mod (intake/exhaust/pulley etc...) you're like "Whoa!!!" And then after a while when the dust settles you sorta thought "hmm.... I don't feel any Whoa feeling anymore". Sorta like getting used to it now. I already have the usual mods on my car and I know when these mods were added, I felt increases but now it seemed the same to me. Not even sure if there's an increase from stock anymore. Maybe I shoul take a drive on a stock Impreza to feel the comparison. Anyone with me on this phenomenon?

Yeah, all i got is an intake so far - no more whoa...
I still feel a kick but I think 'is this the intake or was my car alwasy like this?'

I drive a lot harder now and floor it often, I didn't when before I made the mods - perhaps if I had I would have more of a memory to compare to..

But, I'm with you... i was thinking about riding in a stock RS to check it out actually...

Mizen,
i'm with you dude, before the stromung shifts at 4000 MAX. But since the stromung i have to stop myself from shifting below 4000rpm's (warmup and nice old people around). I just love to hear the deep growl right at 5000rpm. its an addiction.
maybe we start a help group.

Trust me the same thing happens with a turbo'd car. I love the Nissan but 7lbs of boost is starting to feel a bit weak. Since discovering the high/low boost button on the controller I have found myself using it alot more. 7lbs is fun but 14lbs is alot more fun! You find yourself looking at mods or ways of tinkering with the car to somehow make it faster or quicker to spool up. That may just be why my dad used to always have a project car in the garage. Working on them is fun and so is improving them. Once you get them to where you've about taken it as far as street legal use will let you, you start looking at a new car. By the way the 14lbs is about all the Primera will take without some really expensive work.

M8, Sorry to break it to you that way but its true. The quest for better, faster, and more fun will never end. You just find something else to set your goals at. So when you go turbo your ambition doesn't end. You just get a whole new set of problems.
