    02 bugeye first mods?

    Had my wrx for awhile now, I've heard of getting a up pipe, an exhaust, and different thing, also Cobb AP, but would really like to know what would be a good place to start. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Best place to start, maintenance. If you're engine isn't in perfect running order you're going to have a bad time with power adding mods.

    Best place to begin modding, Catless up-pipe. Cheaping out could cause fitment issues and pre-mature wear. I'd go with name brand.

    You must decide what you want to do first, suspension, power, exterior etc.

    I just picked out a turbo xs up pipe I'm going to order Wednesday. I went throught the car and everything is sound except my check engine light which I think is just a catalytic sensor. I'm not completely sure that's my best guess.

    Turbo XS is a good brand. That'll be a good investment.

    You can go to a local autoparts store and have them scan that code for you.

    Don't forget the gaskets to go along with the up-pipe. And get that code figured out before you go on with the power mods

    The up pipe normally only comes with two gaskets. The two touching the uppipe. You'll need a set where the head/headers and also one from turbo/downpipe

    Should I order those too? Or do you think a auto store will have them?

    I bought the Grimmspeed ones. They're good.
