Default New To The Forum! (Fairly New To Subarus)

What's up everyone? Just wanted to swing by and show my subaru. Great forum, I'm fairly new to subies, just bought my first one back in March this year.

2002 WRX, stock besides exhaust, intake, enkei's, and a cheap knock off BOV that the previous owner installed



Being an Off-Roader, I do take it to the dirt and even got it stuck once




Little history on how I became a subie owner; I've been into anything Off-Road related my whole life. He's a pic of my REAL money pit, my Rock Crawler (94 Toyota, huge list of mods)


My tow rig (2000 F250 on 35" BFG's, V10)




As you can imagine, the V10 became too expensive to drive daily lol. So i parked it and picked up this civic (Which quickly became "boring" to drive every day lol)




And that's how I ended up with the WRX! I've always wanted one, finally got it. Looking forward to doing some modifications to it while still keeping it street freindly, Daily Driver worthy, and family friendly. I guess the first thing I'd like to do is replace the cheap BOV with a better one. Suggestions on the BOV? I'd like to lower it a bit also.

Congrats on the car! I would replace that bov with the stock bpv. As for the suspension call turn in concepts and tell them your car and what you want out of it and they will give you the best advice on what to get suspension wise. Good luck with the car and enjoy!

Thanks guys! It's a fun car for sure!!

So is the stock BPV the best route to go?? I wouldn't mind going with another aftermarket BOV, a GOOD quality one.

No need to go aftermarket unless your running +20 psi boost. Pros of a BPV over a BOV are there too running only lightly modded.

WELCOME TO NASIOC!!!

and welcome to the largest online Subaru community.


Allow me to describe 3 scenarios to you;

1. Daily driver: This individual enjoys ownership of their WRX. Subtle upgrades may occur in an effort to add excitement to the morning commute. Maintenance is a must.

2. Stance yo: This individual may install absurd suspension mods such as; airbags, camber kits, deep dish wheels. Sound systems are a must, as this individual is highly impressive to all participants at car shows.

3: Track guy: This individual goes straight for the jugular. While driving on the street is part of every day life... the car is likely to have; major engine modifications, fuel/turbo/tune upgrades, brakes, roll cage, sticky tires. High performance is a must.



If you met all three of these guys at a bar, which one would you resonate with most?

Don't believe I've ever resonated with a guy before. At least not on purpose. I am guessing he can relate most easily to your third option.
