    Need help in choosing the right tune ups.

    Trying to slowly but surely upgrade my WRX, quite possibly like an STI, without buying an STI.

    I know there are people who know their stuff, and i would like to learn!

    Basically all stock, except i have an Agency Power blow off valve, and TurboBack system in my car. But that is all.

    Anyone, i will appreciate any help! thank you.

    I think this thread is really helpful.

    I'm somewhat in the same boat, but I don't plan on going very far with it. Right now I just have a TBE.
    My next purchases are going to be upipe(to get rid of the cat), sway bars, STI intercooler and hoses, then maybe an intake.

    What year is your car? What tune are you running with those mods?

    The smart advice on modding your car to be like an STI is:
    Save your money and buy an STI. It will cost you 2-3 times as much to mod your car to get it to be somewhat like an STI but never quite like an STI as it will cost you to just buy an STI.

    You can get into the same power output as a stock STi fairly easy but everything else is gonna take quite a bit of money.
