Andy’s Subaru Impreza WRX – GDA


Written By: Ben Duen Back in the day, it used to be that if you were a part of the import scene, you either owned a Honda Civic or most of your friends owned a Civic. And the first step you would take to some faster timeslips was gutting your interior of every amenity that your monthly payment paid for to get some weight reduction and shelling out another months worth of your pizza delivery paychecks on a certain baby blue bottle filled with laughing gas. After a bitter but necessary lesson on the effects of too much nitrous and not enough fuel in your system, you’d then deliver more pizzas till you swear you’d never eat another pizza in your life so that you’d have enough greenbacks for a bigger motor to do an engine swap… just to introduce yourself to the 14’s. Nowadays, civics are still as popular as ever and on top of nitrous, the name of the game is forced induction and enough traction to keep the power on the asphalt. But there seems to be a new weapon of choice. And what team would be complete without one. The new Subaru WRX. Turbocharged, intercooled, and all wheel drive from the factory, this rocket is what most civics dream of becoming one day. This pristine WRX is owned by one of the newer members in Jade, Andy Rodi. Andy’s example is exemplary. Far from stock but far from being completed, it’s got most of the major basic bolt ons and enough balls to run 13’s on a hot day. Add to that an imported C-West full body kit and he starts to simultaneously turn heads and snap necks at the same time. Is he done yet? Not by a long shot. With more mods planned for 2003 than most performance shops have in stock, be on the lookout for this up and coming rising star from Jade. PERSONAL INFO
