    Greetings and welcome to the club!

    My previous car was a 2000 Prelude.

    The WRX has all of those decals?

    welcome

    First thing - uppipe, this eliminates one cat and will let you get into boost earlier, second - engine management - choose your poison, they all work (cobb,utec, openecu) and flash to stage 1. Enjoy it as is for a while. Now start doing some reading and decide if you want to focus on handling/braking or speed. An upgrade of rotors, pads, fluid, and lines will make a night and day difference on the stock brakes. Add a rear anti-sway bar, and good endlinks (try whiteline or perrin). Ignore springs and go straight for a good set of coilovers and you will have a capable handling setup. You will need camber bolts and a good alignment to get things setup right. Get a good downpipe/catback(aka TBE or turbo back exhaust), and flash to stage 2.

    At this pint, leave it alone and just enjoy it the way it is. A stage 2 bugeye is best for all around. If you want more speed, look into a bigger turbo. vf34 is great for around town, spools like stock but with much more available. If you want somethng a bit more powerful and don't mind waiting just a tad longer for it, go bigger such as an 18g/20g with a protune. Tires? How are they - get a good set of summer/winters or allseasons. When and if you start looking at rims, pay attention to weight - no sense slowing yourself down for the sake of bling(and let's face it, there is no excuse other than being cheap, there are plenty of nice rims out there that are low in weight). As a follow up to the previous parenthetical aside always bear this in mind:
