Nice looking RS, it's a model we don't actually get over here. What's you power output and do they go well?

I wouldn't call it a fast car, but it's fast enough to be fun.. The 2.5RS is 165 hp N/A stock. Dunno how much I gained from the exhaust. It's my daily driver, so I bought it more for gas mileage and getting around town.

It doesn't have many mods, my Formula gets all the mod budget now..... The RS so far has the 17" wheels & S03's, 20mm WRX rear sway bar, Kartboy shifter & bushings, Brullen catback, tint job on the windows.

I have Eibach pro springs for it, and the interior out of a '03 WRX. I think that blue pattern will make the interior look sweet. Can't wait to get them on and snap some pics.

I like the car, but to be honest, I don't like the rims, looks like they are supposed to be on a Porsche,

Nice car

I get a lot of mixed reactions on the wheels. Personally, I think they look great, and different from other RS's out there. I didn't want to break the bank buying wheels, and they were $109/each. Hard to beat for that price.

Nice price for the wheels Dr Evyl. I think you'll find anyone who doesn't like the wheels now will change their mind when you drop it!

what diameter is your exhaust? did you have it custom bent or did you use a GC8 exhaust?

if it's more than 2.25" then you might have lost some midrange torque, and if it's more than 2.5" then you could have lost your high range HP.

more info on the exhaust please! do you like it?

It's the Brullen, full catback... 2.25". It's specifically made for the '02-'03 RS2.5. I figured I wasn't going to mod the car much, and anything larger woulda been overkill.

I like the exhaust, it sounds and looks very nice... I do feel a little difference.. hard to say if I gained anything from it, I don't drive the car very hard.

Well, I corner hard... just don't hammer the gear box too much... I'll run it through the gears, I just don't abuse it.

My Formula is the car I hammer - no warranty worries, it's paid for, and it's a lot faster than my RS...

As for the wheels... Never did understand what people don't like about them..

DR EVYL where did you buy the wheels from? Those are Mille Miglia right? I like other wheels that they make, so can you tell me where you bought them?

I really like your car, so don't be mad, which I don't think you were

Thanks

I ordered them from http://www.tirerack.com

Those are 17 x 7.5" Mille Miglia Cup3S (Satin finish) wheels with 225/45YR17 Bridgestone S03's. Got the wheels and tires together, they came mounted, balanced and inflated to pressure... ready to go on the car, and it only took 2 days for them to come in.

I got the whole package shipped to my door for $1218, which I think was a great deal.

They're not Porsche turbo rims. They look sorta similar, but if you park the two cars next to each other the differences are pretty glaring.

It's getting lowered as soon as I have another body willing and able to help out.

What I meant is they are knockoffs. Well I guess I will decide as soon as you find a helping hand.
