    Nothing that won't require custom mapping

    Yes I know it requires a custom mapping. I'm just asking for suggestions on what to do..... Bolt-ons and such.

    Fuel pump would be a good place to start, you could also look into a bigger TMIC and potentially a new up-pipe, but I'm unfamiliar with performance gains. I've heard good things about an EBCS for better boost control.

    EDIT: I should note a fuel pump isn't going to increase power, just provide fuel without maxing out the stock pump.

    It kinda depends on what car you have.. but nothing at this point will provide a substantial boost in power short of a turbo upgrade. Stage two protune should all but max out the stock turbo, you can tweak a little here and there for more power, but the bang/buck just isn't there.

    Start on the suspension.
    Life is like riding a bicycle in order to keep your balance you must keep moving.

    TGV deletes, injectors, fuel pump, TMIC, and a custom tune.

    But honestly, I'd stop at Stage 2. For ****'s sake your car is under warranty still!

    Not anymore. After putting the Cobb AP they can say that changing the tune cause any problem that happens now
    2013 WRX sedan - MODS = pretty much every bolt on besides a bigger turbo.

    Not true. It would void the warranty on the engine if anything. And supposedly Cobb says Subaru can't tell if you've flashed.

    If you mod the radio then it doesn't void the suspension if something breaks.... it only messes with the part you're modding.

    Any tech could tell that the downpipe had been altered...
