    SPT is a short ram, CAI's are what people advise against using...
    I think equal length headers yield about 10hp, but dont quote me on that its been a long time since i read it, could be wrong. Just make sure you have engine management when you do these mods..

    oh and welcome.

    What up Joshy. Welcome to da subaru world. Here are some of your Q answered:
    1)Exedy and ACT make great clutches. I think exedy clutches are a little stiffer
    2)Blitz nur spec is a good exhaust. It is pretty loud. Any subaru exhuast you get will really sound good. Its hard to make a subaru sound aweful. I have 2 exhuasts. an HKS hi power and a customer made 3 inch straight pipe
    3) As far as the intake i would get all exhuast first. So get a downpipe and a catback to start off then work your way to the up pipe and finish it off with an intake. Id prob go with a short ram intake.
    4) Headers do not really improve HP that much. There are two kinds of headers for subarus:
    Equal length=Adds some HP but at the same time you loose that subaru sound. You wrx will now sound similair to another 2.0 liter engine such as rsx etc
    unequal length- your performance gains will be minimal to none. The aftermarket unequal length are more of a exhuast note mod. It will make your exhaust deeper.

    If you have any other questions feel free to pm me or ask
    Later and welcome to the club
    Sincerely

    welcome to the club!

    1: no idea. I've heard Act and Exedy are good.
    2:yes
    3:if you must get a intake, make sure it's a SRI. (SPT, Cobb, K&N) won't make as much of a difference as a DP or UP would. (power wise)
    4:couple threads about this. Not as cheap as most people think. $500-1k.

    The Cobb AP is good if you plan on staying stage 2 or within its guidelines. If you have all your parts in order you could save up and get a protune to extract the most from your mods.

    cobb is the way to go, you do not need the protune for a full exhaust but it will help if you add more mods.
