02 WRX wagon


dont have to, but you should. i have an uppipe in my 02 for the last 40,000 miles and no e.m. now im creeping up on 140,000miles and still running strong. it is worth it to get the up,dp, exhaust +e.m. though, you will be happy and so will your car. and get a tune if you can afford it.

yeah it's by no means necessary... but for the cost of a tactrix cable and some openecu.org time and the use of a laptop, it's more than crazy not to.
