Hi, my name is Kevin... wait, this sounds familiar. I posted something in the general section without looking here. Huh. I'm from NY.

Anyway, I've grown up mostly with Japanese cars. (I'm not a ricer...) My first car was a 1990 Lexus LS 400... so I guess I kinda have some experience with a v8... (sorta). Anyway, so... hmmm. I always thought that Americans have gotten lax in terms of developing efficient v8s and that the Aussies were only ones that we trying to modernize the v8. Apparently I was wrong.

I currently drive a Subaru Impreza WRX and while it's fun and corners very well, I'm interested in some bonecrushing torque as well. I currently have about 220 wtq in my Subie, which seems like nothing compared to a stock 350 small block from the 70s... like my friend drives. (Of course, the car weighs 3 tons so acceleration is a bit stymied...)

Hello and welcome to the site! Is the subie stock or got any mods? They can be fun and fierce when modded.

Thanks for the responses. I'm more awake now. Heh.

My Subie is stage 2, with a downpipe and resonated catback. I have no plans for any other mods atm because I want to save up. This is currently my daily driver to go between work, school, and home.

My Subie club friends say that the exhaust note is sick. I find myself straddling the fine line between illegal and legal on open highways...

I'm not into the whininess and ricey-ness of those inline 4s when modded... I've always liked the boxer rumble and with this new exhaust, it's like falling in love again. It's not as panty-dropping as a good v8 sound, but it'll do.

Welcome to the site. Where in NY are you from?

The WRX is a cool daily driver...I test drove 1 last year...drove nice, just too small for me....they're definitely not made for tall people.
