Default Life of a Blue Squirrel

On 23 Feb 2012 I bought my first Subaru. As soon as I bought it I started to go through the previous modifications and fixing it up. Here is the process.

For More Pics or to follow up with the project you can view them here : http://s46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...Impreza%20WRX/

The turbo itself isnt too bad, now the ridiculous size intercooler however plays a big role. LOL with the current tune ill have full boost by 4500 but I am working on that

I like it but the boost does kick in later but pulls good to the end...A good tune will definitely make it run smooth

^^ No worries man, I was pretty busy this weekend too. Maybe next weekend we could meet up at Riverview or something for a sec. I live right near there, so it would be ideal.

If you can PM me what you think you would want for it, that would be awesome. I'm going to repaint it and have it ready to put on Kelly's car, since the paint on her's has peeled pretty bad.
