Cool Not a Sub owner, but impressed!

Hey guys.
My friend (SilverSubie on the forum) has a '02 WRX on order. I kind of rag on him sometimes about the whole jap/4 cylinder thing But..

Looking on the net, I found some videos and sounds of the old model WRX, and I'm impressed. That boxer engine sound is sweet! Like a Porsche lacking 2 cyl's
Well I'm looking forward to when he gets delivery, can't wait to ride in it and help him with mods like helped me with my car.

Well I just had to say that,

JD

Cool

JD,

People who have preconceived notions of Subaru in North America are in for a big surprise...but long time fans of the WRX have known the truth for years, that Subaru can build high performance cars as well as anyone!

While we're on this subject, what would it take go get a WRX into the 13's, and then into the 12's?
Thanks,
Mike
