As far as I have seen there are a few scattered all over the state, but the mecca is in albuquerque. Look at camtuning.com/forums to meet some folks from NM and also look on racingsouthwest.com for people into cars from NM.

Subarus in the northern portion of the state are very common; old, new and hippi-fied. WRX/STI are a little less common. Most of the cars on camtuning are WRX/STI.

Ouch, Cannon AFB! There isn't much to say about the supporting city, Clovis. Been there a few times, not much to see and definitely not too many Subys. Amarillo, TX is about an hour drive from there. I'm sure there is a larger Subaru community there. I'm at Kirtland AFB (civilian) and like others said, Albuquerque is where you're going to find the most Subarus. We're like 2.5 hours drive from Clovis.

yeah man as everyone mentioned ABQ is the place with the biggest crowd. We are actually going to be setting up a Mass Meet maybe/cruise in April sometime so keep your eyes out on here and Camtuning.com for more info and if you need tuning PM 06rexwagon on here or camtuning (which is his site) good guy. Maybe you will make it to the meet????

This is Cam. Clovis is a small place, but you're not too terribly far from Albuquerque. There are also a few guys in Las Cruces, and MCS Motorsports there is going to be getting an AWD dyno very soon.

na wont be makin it out in time . my school here in bfe texas/oklahoma wont be over till the first of july. expect me down there around mid july but thanks for the heads up and thanks for the notice on the shop i'll keep that in mind.
little on myself. i'm 22 will be my birthday-ish when i get there. i'm married, her name's jana. she's on here as well. she's thinkin about a legacy gt right now. without her none of my car would be where it is. she's way chill. so more about me i'm an artist in every sense genre of the word. i'm just starting tech school for the USAF. um... i'm from Ogden Utah, just North of Salt Lake City. subaru movement is HUGE up there. i'll post pics sometime of the meet we had up there. i'm an avid chiller with cobb ha ha. um. i guess that's it. so now down to business. here's the car (in november, it has changed a little)


-engine mods:
cobb intake
turboxs up pipe
bosal downpipe
catless mid pipe
greddy evo2 cbe
boost controller
cobb pulley
silicone y pipe
HUGE tmic (uninstalled)
open source tune
-suspension mods:
whiteline front sway bar
cobb endlinks
sti f/r strut bar
tein s tech springs
pink h brace
17" enkei rpm2 w/ brigdestone re92's
satin black stockers w/ rally tires (currently on car)
-exterior mods:
satin black (custom) sti fog covers
smoked side markers
black headlights
oem ver.7 sti wing (j spec)
black 'gran sport' fender stripes
interior mods:
charcoal dash trim (only where bland stock silver was)
weighted kartboy shift knob
oem 'quick throw' (that's what i've heard them called)


i would like to know if anyone open sources and if anyone is crazy with subaru's i can do most the maintenance on my car but i'm still learning. i don't like shops none too much. i would be interested in that dyno though. is there any auto-cross out here?

+1 to that

as far as I know I'm the only one in the nortern part of the state on these boards and i have to tell you, aside from the plethora of hippi-flipped outbacks and foresters I see alot of WRX/WTi and legacy GT action. However they all seem to be driven by grandma/grandpas up here. I rarely see any modded out scoobs north of ABQ.
