2002 Impreza WRX
WR Blue

Default New in Town

I just moved here from Southern California. I am a recent purchaser of a 2002 WR Blue WRX, I know, it is the ussual color. I am come from a car family, my father owns a bunch of dealerships in Cerritos, but no Suburu dealership. I used to drive a '95 Integra GS-R that I had setup for track racing, I lived in Atlanta for the last four years and raced at Road Atlanta on open track days, amoung other places. I decided to go against the grain of my family and buy the WRX and so far I love my decision. I have only done one mod. 17 inch Team-D Motorsport Rims with 215-45 Kumo Supra's on it, but I am looking to do some minor motor mods and possibly some suspension upgrades. Owning to the fact that I live in the city, the suspension mods would have to be mild too. Where is a good place to go around here for resources? Also, what kind of mods can we do to these things to increase top end power, I am used to the VTEC kick. And, what about smog, CARB issues? Give me a little help-

Hey Harrison. I'm a SouthEast transplant as well. Lived in Asheville, NC for about 5 years. Can't wait to get back...

Take a look in the suspension forums for suspension advice - there's tons of info there.

As far as local places... They're not Subaru-specific, but I've been going to ASP (Auto Sound Performance) down in Daly City. Good, smart, car ethusiasts. They're mainly Acura/Honda guys - but they're into the WRX. Check 'em out. They can order whatever, and can do just about anything you need done. They did my tint and alarm installations - great work on both jobs.
