Hey guys and gals

new guy from ilkeston. I just broke into the scoobie world after the other half requesting an AWD and i wanted something better than a zafira so here I am on the road towards a finely tuned car. Just brought......(in the process) of buying a 07 hawkeye WRX. I really dont know everything about anything when it comes to scoobies but i have just been trawling ebay e.t.c and picked up what i know about the cars so any info on the hawkeye model in pertic i.e what is it called slang....or proper lol. Im struggling to search for parts e.t.c. as i dont even know what gen it is other than newage just know its a wrx...2.5 turbo its all standard as far as i can tell no atmospheric dump valve e.t.c.

all info and welcoming would be great and welcoming lol

welcome along matey,im not sure but i think the 2.5 engines are the weaker engines and you will be better off with a 2.0 sti engine-i may be wrong,think they suffer from pick up pipe failure and ringland failure

Hey up tink hope ya good. The world is your oyster?? Or should that be sandwich ?? . A lot depends on what u want with the car. Yes big shrek is right . The 2.0 sti block is stronger. But if ya not after silly power . Just say a good healthy 300 . The 2.5 is more than up to the job. A lot better on torque. Good drivabilty. Loads of simple mods u can do to make the car quicker . Etc etc. hope u enjoy ya scooby . Get yaself to a meet if ya lucky steve n scatty will spit roadt ya lol pmsl
