Hahaha, to be honest, a WRX with that much power should hold you over justttttt fine. Having AWD and shit-tons of power will "complete" you. Lol

TBH as it is stock is quick! When the car is light and you don't have much to move its got plenty of power and most say its underrated. Most stock WRXs are putting down 250awhp thats way more than the 265bhp claimed, its probably one of the few cars I've driven and just been happy with it the way it is. What I am doing though is getting sways, endlinks, and some bushings installed to firm up the suspension. Def plan on auto-x ing it and hitting the strip with it as well! Try to get into the 12s bone stock.

Well last night I had some energy and was gonna get up into the 50s here today so I threw on the Welds rear only. Waiting on my hawk pads to replace the rollerskates up front so I can mount the fronts.

Hooks well, I can roll into 2nd and just put it to the floor and go. I can't dead hook it in first still spinning a bit but controlable till I hit 2nd and its ok. Warmer weather and putting some heat into them first will most likely really help.

Nice! I already have the trailing arms installed and a set of toe rods sitting on my bench! I need heat in my garage so I'll be more inspired to go out and install them! Make sure you do the outer trailing arm bushins too!

I hear ya I don't have heat in my garage either probably gonna get an electric heater at some point and just let it run in there while I work. I heard you have to drop the subframe a bit to get the bolt on the driver side out for the toe rod. I'm gonna wait on some solid subframe bushings to do the whole install at once. Yeah I'm waiting on those bushings too. Finally putting some dough into the suspension its about time

Sweet!! Get those things on ASAP. If you don't have solid subframe bushings, and differential bushings yet, get those ASAP with your power. It'll make a huge difference.

Yeah man, that's the plan is to help not get any mind of wheel hop. Even the slightest at my power AAA is towing my car to ecs haha. I got my eye on some subframe bushings in the classifieds see if I can make a deal. Not gonna do the diff bushings honestly because I might swap out to the whole 12 bolt hammerhead at some point. I'm just curious how much better its gonna be once I'm all done.

I saw that for sale thread and was going to mention it to you, especially if he's willing to go down a tad in price. I agree about the diff. bushings, as you shouldn't bother if you are going the full 12 bolt route. The cradle bushings are a must though.

Talk to Matt about any pfadt suspension parts. He's the man. He got Pfadt to sponsor my car. And subsequently my drag racing coil overs will be here on Monday.

If you don't mind the ride you are more than welcome to use my lift in my heated garage.
