    Then I do not suggest getting a DP...


    You will probably be able to use a Tactrix cable and Open Open source ECU once they crack that stuff in the coming months.

    Cobb will probably take another half of a year before they have maps out for the 08s on the AP...

    Tunes will generally cost around $500 give or take from a professional tuner, but I HIGHLY recommend it.

    Nothing will unlock the power of your car like a good protune.

    Save your money for a DP and a protune. It's worth it man.

    How about you just drive it stock for a little while. I got my 02 when I was 20 and promptly ran it off the road (bending a strut and scaring myself smart) 6 months later while trying to impress my friend.

    Like said before... No mods (except intake and catback) on an 08 without a tune!!! They run super lean as it is!

    How do you bend a strut?

    I slid sideways on the road while going about 70. Then I dropped off the road into a corn field that thankfully didn't have any corn planted in it at the time.

    If there isn't any corn, is it still a corn field?

    Since there was no corn, but there was a Subaru, wouldn't that make it a Subaru field?

    get a Stock BPV and get rid of the BOV and get rid of the Cold Air Intake.

    Backfiring will go with it...

    Our cars do a minimum amount of backfire/afterfire anyway...having a straight through muffler will obviously make it louder. Also...get a DP with cats...

    -1 *(BOV + catless = a love of backfiring) => -BOV - Catless = BPV + Cats = No backfiring.
