    NEW WRX owner here! Mod advise?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hello all!,

    My wife and I just bought a 2004 4 door Impreza WTX automatic. We had to get her an automatic because she got in a BAD car accident in 2003 and has trouble shifting a mannual. I hear the automatic WRX models are rare? This will be her everyday car! We are actually picking it up on Friday!

    I am very familiar to modding cars, just not a WRX. I currently have an N/A Pontiac Grand Prix GT thats about 300 HP and will do a high 13 1/4 at 98MPH!

    Any newb modding advise would be great!

    THANKS ALL!,
    Mike WRX 2.0T

    Welcome, and nice mod list on the GP. If you put half that much effort and money into your wife's WRX, she will get you in a race, so watch out!!!

    THANKS ALL!,
    Welcome to the club & congrats on a great & fun car to mod. Just about everybody will tell you that the best performance mods are getting a catless uppipe and a catless downpipe and some type of engine mngt. On the uppipe I know the Helix, and the JDM STi uppipe are very popular. On the downpipe the Helix is also popular along with the Bosal, Godspeed, HKS, Stromung, and many others, there is a exhaust combo thread that is very helpfull for ideas if you search for it.

    Here is a thread for exhaust sound clips:

    Exhaust Video/Sound Clips

    Here is the thread for the exhaust combo

    Exhaust Systems / Combos Log

    Here is a thread of different modification lists from A-Z

    Comprehensive WRX Modification List

    Hope that helps & have fun!!
