    It's shiny, has an oiled filter, and makes noises.

    What are you looking for?

    sooo are those bad things? im just looking around at different parts so i can figure out what i wanna start doing first to my car. my first things id really like to do is a CAI, preferably cobb cause ive heard a lot of good things about them. a short throw shifter. and i really like the invidia q300 exhaust system its pretty sick. ideally id really like to do a lot of cobb parts, but im not sure if they make an entire exhaust sytem only a down and up pipe i think. im new to all this is so im trying to take in as much as i can before i start dropping bills

    and also, i know short ram, and CAI are both good paths to take. my main concern is which one is... safer for the car? less debris....water ingestion ect..... i know they both do prety much the same thing but my main concern is the engine. id prefer to have whichever is safer for the car and the least amount of upkeep

    also keep in mind this is my first subaru, as well as turbo charged car. i went from a 2008 ford focus i bought brand new to a 2011 wrx..... quite a big jump. i can drive the hell out of the cars but know nothing about any technical stuff lol.

    Any intake is going to require ECU calibration. Unless you're an idiot, there's no risk of water ingestion that will cause motor damage.

    You've got other things to worry about before an intake.

    ok then what are some semi-simple not outrageously expensive upgrades recommended before an intake?

    if you cant afford an intake, you cant afford to mod a wrx. keep it stock.
