It also gives you the handy fuel saving "girlfriend mode" where you have much less power to mess with.

I spent $670 on this mod and I feel like I used it every day. This is not to say that I abused my car because I feel I never did. So basically, I can see how a reflashed car could be not abused. I also know people who buy WAAY more car than they need or can use, because they enjoy them - not because they beat on them.
OK. Thanks for the explaination.

With the ECU reflash, do you feel more torque below ~3500 rpm?

Definitely. Before when my car was stock, I would have to downshift to 1st if I were trying to accellerate below 2500 rpm in 2nd (typical in city driving). After the reflash the car would actually pull around 2k rpm in 2nd.

Uhh, with the taking over payments, if even possible under his loan, that might be one expensive WRX.

They must have been paying interest only to still owe that much on an '02 or else they paid way too much for it used.

This is the THIRD time this car has been posted. They have not changed the ad at all, or lowered the price. Anyone know anything about it?

what do you guys think


in case the page expires

Date: 2006-08-28, 9:28PM PDT


rally blue pearl 2.5rs coupe
mobile one every 3000 miles
runs strong
110k miles

random mods
magnaflow exhaust
bilstein struts
STI gold BBS wheels
debadged
aftermarket stereo subwoofer
pirelli p1 tires
can hook up a screen and computer to the dash
alarm
painted side skirts
razo shift ****

small paintchips from highway driving

i want to get 10 000 for this. the bbs wheels and tires cost 1000 by itself.

for 15 000
i will give you the car
and stuff not put in
jdm sti motor "ej207" 8k redline unlike usdm 7k redline
turbo crossmember
jdm sti 411 gearbox
with rear axels lsd
and the sti exhaust
rare jdm dccd cluster 8k redline
everything you need to make it a sti provide your own wiring harness and intercooler

and for 1800 i will give you link ecu. standalone system to run the sti motor. just released for this motor. very well tuned.

this car has very unique aggressive look. to find this car in 99 rally blue coupe is rare. and if you install the sti motor it will be very fast. faster than stock STI's. this car is one of a kind and it is rare to see them have sti swaps. and the jdm sti motor is especialy good because has something the usdm stis dont have "AVCS" which gives better low end power.

willing to trade it all for a 2002 and up s2000 + cash or watever.
