Post #1 on Page #1 - The introduction of my car.

Here is my new car. Just bought it today (7/17/08). I have been on the forums for awhile just trying to learn, almost two years I believe. I use to own a sentra se-r with the sr20 in it, it was boosted and dynoed at 312. So I am not new to cars. I am just here to learn about the subarus and to be taught by everyone here on the forum.

Here are a few pictures of my stock 1999 2.5rs with 104k on the clock.














I am looking to do some simple mods. I am open to anything people throw some things at me to give me some ideas of what I can do with these cars. Thanks everyone and I will be getting some better pictures after I wash it up and make it look good!!!

For cheap mods I would first go with a used wrx rear sway bar. They can be found for 20 to 40 bucks and would make your car much more neutral handling. Then I would go with bolra or ebay borla header(which is supposably better than the real deal) and a 2.25 in header back exhaust, with a good size(18in) resonator in line. This will give you great boxer rumble and good low- mid range torque. Do a snokus intake delete(take out the resonators in the passenger wheel well), and add a high flow panel filter such as k&n. This would be a good start.

Yeah what all would you reccomend as far as getting the front to sit a little lower. Like any good spring combos, or do you reccomend a full coilover?

I know swift makes some really good springs, a buddy had a set on his turbo forester(along with sways) and it handled nearly as flat as my sti in the corners
