2003 Wrx Wagon


So these are the Chronicles of my First Subaru, a 2003 Wrx Sport Wagon Midnight Black Pearl.

I bought this car in March of 2011 from a shady ass dealer off Lake City Way. It came with a missing MAF housing, a ripped out boost tee (and gauge), as well as two different sized tires in the front and back. I traded in my 98' Chevy Silverado Z71 in mint condition for this car; I was instantly in love the minute I laid my eyes on her.

She came mostly stock, however obviously someone had an aftermarket DP & Intake on it at some point because it had a missing turbo heat shield, and MAF Housing,yet a stock DP upon purchase.... It had the Koji headlight mod (blacked out) and some black 08' wrx wheels.

Here's a pic of it shortly after lowering it...

I went stage 2 rather quickly as well. I did my fair share of DIY mods, and just putting top of the line parts where needed along the way. I had my first child during the middle of all this a year later. So I took time off from modding, and focused on the family. I had been acquiring parts for over a year and the more parts I got the more eager I wanted to bolt them on. Being at Stage 2+ I knew the next level was a FMIC, Bigger Turbo, injectors etc....and a good tune + pray to god that my 150+k mile motor holds.

So moving along rather quickly through time we end up where I currently am now.
