Cool My New Bug-Eyed Rally Blue WRX

So I've had her almost a month now still getting a feel for Subaru's which they have some weird stuff going on, but I'm coming from the BMW and VW scene! I love everything about this car reminds me alot of the GTI I had handling and everything. I bought this from a dealership who took it in on trade and sold it to me for the same price... Which is a sweet deal with what it all has and I've actually ran into the previous owner posting it on threads. Tell me what you guys think!

Mod list from the first two owners. Which when the car was modded not to many kits were out for this car. Like the FMIC which I'm getting fixed over the break, along with a better fuel system and maybe some new brakes...

extreme motorsports header and up pipe(identical to HKS with a greater diameter up pipe)
3 in. turbo back HKS hyper exhaust
XS engineering s15 front mount (reason for tilt)
Turbo XS Manual Boost Controller
HKS Turbo Timer
custom piping kit
IHI vf22 dual ball bearing turbo
cobb tuning stage 3 ecu
Apexi afc( just for data/ not tuning)
Guages (A/F, Boost, Oil Pressure)
aem intake
Eibach pro kit springs
B&M ripper shifter
sparco shift nob
stage 2 clutch and fly wheel
HKS fuel cut defenser

My Newest Additions:
NGK Iridium Spark Plugs
Pink I Emblem
STI Carbon Side Marker Covers
Fog Light Covers

did you make your FMIC piping out of kitchen sink piping? Where did you route that cold side piping to?

Well the core was for an s15 and when he put it on there weren't any FMIC kits for the car and the core is good but the cold side piping is **** the other side is a greddy custom piping kit. The second owner liked blue so he changed out the cold side piping... GAY!! But yea planning on getting it all redone in time just b/c it looks bad, but I have till next summer to get it ready to show.. Right now I feel the fuel system, radiator, and breaks are more important.

Are none of the IHI turbo's dual ball bearing and it seems the vf22 is still the best with max range horsepower and I posted another thread on the subject of the vf22. In the turbo'd cars I have had this turbo responds the best and doesn't over heat ever like my gti's did or the stock turbo from what the previous owner said... and the first owner said that's what they put on it immediately after they found that the stock turbo was going to be a problem. Honestly don't care but it just seems nobody knows if it is a dual ball bearing a guy busted open one of these and said he found two bearings.

But anyways I bought the car b/c it's exactly what I wanted and these mods were a bonus!

MBCs are not death. They are actually a really nice way to control the boost if you are properly tuned for one. You will be hard to find a boost controller with the same response as a good ball and spring MBC.

youre right, most vaginas do look like a tube, but really all i did was put a series of characters together and called them a vagina, no need to get technical.
