Thanks though
I would never boost what is in the car I would most likely have to get some overnight parts from Japan I found many flaws in the short time looking at Subi forums is that the '06-'07 NA Subi's are pretty much useless to mod when it comes to power. I got this car to DD and be affordable and it has done that. Likely what will happen when the time comes for a replacement is step into an newer WRX or STI.

I actually want an '06 - '07 WRX wagon but have only found cars that were either beat to no end, extreme high miles or most likely have been in some sort of accident or flood.

For now I will just drool over your car.

Don't know why but that passenger wiper arm is bothering me.
It looks like it's 1 spline off.
