    2008+ STi mod help

    Okay so i have a 2008+ STi and would like to modify it a little bit its a daily driver so nothing ridiculus stupid like 400+ wheel HP and i dont have 7K for a rotated turbo mod and internals to go with it too i was thinking of this for some mods

    Perrin FMIC
    Perrin soft suspension combo
    Perrin 1 piece down pipe
    Perrin Cat Back Exhaust
    Cobb access port tuner
    Perrin staged tune for the mod
    Perrin front strut brace

    what does everyone think of that and would some of the mods be a waste of money and time iam just looking for a good rounded car something that the suspension is not as much body lean and some good performance too any advice and or sugestions would be nice thankyou.

    ditch the FMIC. everything else sounds good

    why not just get a custom tune instead of getting a custom tune & the AP? you'll save about.. 700 dollars.

    Power mods:
    Walbro Fuel Pump
    Custom OpenECU tune

    That would be more beneficial than the FMIC / AP + Perrin map

    As for suspension, Front/Rear sways, quality tires, and a custom alignment will go a long way.

    The TiC Short Shifter + Bushing bundle would also be another great modification.

    Don't get the indicated items, they are either pointless (strut brace), detrimental to performance (FMIC), or (in the case of the suspension & tuning) there is better available.

    Perrin makes many things, not all of them well.

    well ive already got a kb short throw with a derlin knob and kb bushings and rear shift bushings also installed s/s brake lines too but for motor wise what would be the most every day reliable with the tune/ maps etc

    okay then for suspension what would you all suggest would like to lower the car a little to kind of get rid of the huge wheel to wheel well gap and is the perrin exhaust a better setup than say invidia or some of the more pricier names or is it more based upon personal
