    a good start for something small would be a catless uppipe,,,

    to get some decent easy power; a downpipe and some sort of reflash (cobb accessport or ECUtek) will make you smile ,

    welcome to the club by the way

    He has an '06... We already have a catless uppipe.


    Best bet is to get a downpipe or some form of engine management (Cobb AP, Utek, etc....) Congrats on the new car and enjoy.

    Definately get a turboback exhaust (downpipe and catback) to start. That'll free up the engine and really let it breathe. Once that is taken care of, go Stage 2 by getting some type of Engine Management (Cobb AccessPort and TurboXS UTEC are the most popular) or an ECU reflash. Stage 2 should keep you happy for a good while.

    When you're ready for more power, the next step is a turbo upgrade. Here things get a little bit more tricky, in addition the turbo, you're gonna need bigger injectors a bigger fuel pump (Walboro 255 is popular) and possibily a larger intercooler depending on how wild of a turbo upgrade you go with. Finally and most importantly, you're gonna need a custom tune to dial it all in.

    woops good catch,,

    im not sure what kind of numbers the 06's are putting down with a reflash but I am sure that its going to be impressive

    The Greddy EVO 2 isn't super-loud and has a big tip. http://www.jscspeed.com/wrx/wrx_base...greddy_evo.htm

    You should become good friends with the search button on the top right corner There are tons of guys here that know what they are talking about and your questions have been answered already a million times over. We don't need CAI's on our cars the stock intake is free flowing enough to make reliable hp. The best thing you can do is get a downpipe and a cobb accessport, and you'll be making around 240hp at the wheels. Do some resarch..and make a decision on what you think is best for what you want to do. I've made mine..but i just dont have the cash right now. Subaru's aren't like Hondas and Toyota's..you don't mod them the same way. Look through this forum.We have a great car, enjoy! I know I am

    The only shop in the NY/NJ area worth there weight in gold is Precision Tuning (I think in "brick" nj). Sure ralli spec and others are great but the waiting list for that place is insane. PT knows there stuff and will go above and beyond whatever you need in order to assist you.

    As for a good setup any basic stage 2 setup from cobb is probaly the best. It's a semi consertive tune, but if you just want more spunk in your setup it's great. Stage 2 on an 06 puts out good numbers search nasioc for a few 06 stage 2 dynos (over 200 at the wheels and over 250 lbs of torque).

    Something to think about is there is more to this car then just power. You might want to get a good Front and rear sway bar set up and rear endlinks for it. Tires (althrough shouldnt need replacement till atleast 20,000 miles) are something to consider if your driving the car hard.

    The 06's brakes are fairly good out of the show room but a better pad isnt a bad idea for the front/rear.

    Check out MSPT. They should be local to you if your in Long Island. Many members on this board use them and I hear they have an amazing tuner.
    http://mspt.net/ their out in Strong Island.

    What tires are on the 06, if their the re92's, get rid of em their horrible.

    Also Precision Tuning does quality work a 100% of the time and have done numerous installs for me and buddies. But MSPT is prolly much closer to this dude.
