    Nice!

    You might wanna pick you up an Accessport now, flash to Stage 2 so you're running safely and efficiently, and then you will be ready for the OTS 16G map when you do the turbo swap. And you will always be ready for a protune with it...(which is highly recommended over the OTS Map)

    I had it fully tuned, is that what you're talking about? When i get the new turbo and injectors, fuel pump, ect. I'll have them re tune it. Is there anything else i should be worried about or do? thx

    Nope...nothing to worry about now. Fully tuned is good puddin. They reflashed your engine management with the tuned map for all the parts.

    Definitely get a retune when you do the turbo upgrade then and you're all set.

    I was just speaking in terms of engine management such as a Cobb Accessport so you could flash Stage 2, because you didn't mention the tune before. But getting a protune is much better than the Cobb OTS maps.

    Yay, i'm 2 weeks new to the wrx and i love it more and more each day. I got it tuned cuz a friend was like get it tuned, it'll get 50 more hp out of your car. I was excited and very pleased with the results. I do have a question though about rims and i'm not sure this is the forum to post it in but here it goes. I want new rims; so i'm thinking 18's, tires being 205s or 225s i'm not sure yet. I also have my car lowered a lot. It's got a megan racing suspension and it's lowered all the way. It has stock wheels. I'm wondering if 18's would be my best decision. 18 x 8 wheels, good or bad choice?

    Thanks

    You would be better off posting in the suspension/wheels/tires forum, but I'll answer.

    18x8s are a very common wheel size to go. I honestly would raise it a little bit if you're gonna settle on 18s so you don't rub. That could kill your tires and the camber wear could also kill your tires (that is if you're suspension doesn't have adjustable camber settings of course). Going that low isn't the best on a WRX. It may look good, but it really can mess with the dynamics and geometry of the suspension, making it ineffective when compared to a slight drop. Just a point to ponder...

    225/40/18 tires would be perfect for 18x8 rims. If you keep it that low, 17x8 rims might be better for you (225/45/17 tires).

    Just installed Prodrive springs and my ebay front lip. Sorry for the crude pictures, my car hasn't been washed since November, and its now dark out, so i had to snap these real quick.

    Before:



    After:






    I really like the Prodrives, much improved over stock, lowered it low enough for me without looking trashy or negatively affecting the suspension.
