Hey guys,

So as the titles says I have spent the last 4 years in my 2004 Subaru WRX which has been all of my daily driver, fun weekender, AutoX car and modified project.

I am graduating college in December with my Manufacturing Engineering degree from Penn College in Pennsylvania and am looking for a more "Grown Up" car. Something that says I'm doing well for myself, handles well and isn't going to break my already non existent bank balance :rolleyes:

I have one issue with the CLA, the engine just isn't enough HP. I mean I am not after a 350+ HP monster of a car but even my little WRX is pushing 225 AWHP after mods and the CLA just hitting 208 crank HP, I want to find if there are any known ways to tune this engine up a little (Tactrix cable, tuner, etc).

Current Car:

Mods include:
- TurboXS Downpipe
- TurboXS Race Pipe
- TurboXS CATback
- Cobb AccessPORT OTS Stage II @ 93 Oct. with 2-step
- K&N Typhoon Intake
- TurboXS BOV
- TGV Delete
- BC Racing coilovers
- Kartboy Tranny Mount
- Kartboy Short Shifter
- Rota 17x8 G-Forces's in Hyper Black
w/ Hankook V12's
- Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3's (Winter Tires on OEM wheels)

I mod every vehicle/bike I own, that will never end :rolleyes:

welcome aboard Scub, glad to have ya!

As for mods well number one (not yet) will be a turbo tune, simple reflash of the ECU and yo should be able to crack out an extra 50 and 50.. Its only a matter of time before we start seeing new down pipes, intakes and pipes for CLA. Shes so new I wouldn;t expect anything significant until at least the new year...
