    new car money to spend

    got a 2011 wrx premium sedan 7k miles on it and im currently in afganistan. ive been going back and forth from spending money on suspension (rce race bisteins combo) or all on power. i do plan to do an open sorce tune so its not that pricey. or i can do alittle of both power and handeling. i like a neutral feeling car that can corner. i have about 1500 that i want to spend. trying to stay to that budget.

    several options i can think of.

    rce springs plus shocks plus rear 22 adj sway bar around 1500 and stg 1 tp tune

    or rce blacks stock shocks plus brake bracket and other odds and ends and stg 1 tp tune or

    cobb intake, downpipe sway bar in rear, some bushings or rce black springs and stg 2 tp tune.

    im already working on replacinf shifter with kartboy and bushings and open sourse tune. but have 1500 more to spend, what are your inputs and ideas. what would you do.

    new car money to spend

    What's your plan for the car ? Have some fun on the road or straight up track car . Figure that out and it may seem easier to decode what u wanna spend your money on . If its street then go stage 2 with a few suspension parts . Doing track ? Then get mostly suspension and some engine parts . But figure out what your ultimate goal is. In the end your gonna enjoy this car regardless . I was In afghan a few years back, RC west , shindand , Herat afghan. Stay safe !

    yeah, its a street dd and just some fun out of it so i dont need to over kill the car for this reason but i used to have a 2012 boss mustang before this wrx. i traded for practicality and car payments are about 500 less on thhis than the boss. but coming from the boss to this is tough having given up the power and suspension the boss had, so i want to breathe some life into the wrx. i dosnt have to be anything crazy, just want some fun. so very first things to get changed obviously will be the shifter and bushings. as far as my research has gone with the rear stay bushing, i ordered the sti rear stay instead of poly so mabey it wont have as much tranny noise but plan to upgrad the other bushings with tic package. i do plan on open sorce tun, which is cheap, and if i go stage 2 i will use a cnt catted down pipe. id love to run the cobb intake, if not for power than the intake noise itself. and all other upgrades im still up in the air about.
