congrats.

I remember when I traded in my old 02 wrx for a new STI at that time.
I felt like a little kid on christmas day.

Trade your wrx for an sti. It is completely worth the cost. I'll post some pics soon, busy all weekend.
For now going to do a basic bolt on e85 tune and come summer putting fp red with e85 on since I already have everything for it other than a built motor.

Take it to a shop first and foremost and get a leak down and compression done so u know what ur dealing with. Don't want to start adding power and parts to a hurt motor

I gotta get used to driving it before I throw power at it though. It's pretty different than the wrx well I think so
