    Hey all Newbie here with lots of questions!

    So i just bought an 02 wrx in august and i love it! I bought the car with intentions to make it more fun to drive so now i am ready. I just bought 550 injectors, turboxs bigger top mount, a vf30, and utec. I guess i need to buy a bigger fuel pump, gauges, exhaust, up and down pipe and what else? If anyone could give me any info or 2 cents on what brand of these listed items i should buy that would be great! Also what three gauges should i get, obviously boost, but what other two? Is there anything i am missing to complete this process? I appreciate would appreciate your help!

    For a turbo upgrade, you will need...

    catless up pipe (CAT before turbo deteriorates after a while, not good for turbo)
    turboback exhaust (downpipe + catback)
    bigger fuel pump
    bigger fuel injectors
    turbo of your choice
    and MUST have an engine management... without that, you might as well forget everything... that's how important it is!

    In terms of brand, the only thing I can suggest to you is have a Cobb AccessPORT for an engine management. You can either download their "off-the-shelf" map for your setup, which I believe it's the stage 2.5. Or, you can have it Protuned by an authorized tuner shop. It's flexibility at its best!

    I would also suggest to take the time to read around about the mentioned parts. It will help you make right decisions and steps in completing your goal.

    Good luck!
