What'd you get for EM?
I had a Cobb AccessPort for my 02 WRX Good cheap, easy to use and self programmable (not to mention oodles of shops that support it)
Though depending on your planned upgrade path I've heard STi folks swear by the Greddy E-Manage.
Also... a word of warning... I've never met an STi owner that wasn't a complete A-hole... I'm not sure if these people were A-holes before or after buying the car, and I know you weren't one before you bought it so just be careful that the car doesn't make you become one
(in all seriousness though, my fiancee and I used to joke that the Subaru Dealership would to a test to ensure the buyer was a jackass before allowing them to sign anything
this came after attending countless meets where you could pick out the STi owners in the group simply because they were the ones being the most douche-baggy)
Yeah, I've got the Cobb AP, good guess, lol. It should be enough for me, I'll probably only build up to Stage 2 anyway. Car has way too much power for me already, can't even imagine what Stage 2 will be like. But I'll probably end up get used to it and want more power down the road, lol.
I've never met any STi owners yet, but I've seen plenty online. I definitely agree with you, most of them seem to have the "my car is better than yours" attitude and look down on any car that isn't superfast and/or expensive. I don't see myself ever getting that stuck up attitude, even in my Eclipse I never looked down on anyone. I always say I remember where I came from before I had that car, lol. I used to drive a 83 accord that was beat to hell and had 280k on it (died at 303k), it was seriously the ugliest car in my entire city at the time (Roanoke, VA). Hopefully I'll run into the cooler ones at any meets.
BTW I remember your WRX too, it was black IIRC. I've been keeping an eye on your Nissan project for a while. I've been temped to build a drift car for a while and probably would have if I didn't get the STi.
