    Exclamation new member

    im a new member soo hi.

    but in all seriousness i drive a 02 s-10 extreme i have alot done to the truck im 16 and have been working on it since i bought it new in 02 its got a 5/6 drop and rims and enough explaining the thing is now that i drive i realized im not really into the "Lowrider" scene.
    Ive been looking into the sti's reading 'more and more on them im planing on buying a older style don't like the 08's.but what would be the best mods like i'm sure i'm getting the invidia N1 exhaust and a few other thing but what turbo controllers do you guys use and im planing on putting in a camera in the car in the rear. im putting in a dvd flip out screen so i can hook it up to that . any other mods that arnt over 1k?

    Welcome

    The "best mods" is a subjective question - what do you want your car to do?

    There are many threads on this topic. Probably your best bet would be to use the search option.

    The first performance mod you'll need to do is free up the airflow, and you'd do this by removing the catalytic converters in the downpipe (CBE is more or less a noise-maker, and doesn't really do much in terms of power). With the removal of the catalytic converters, you'll want to modify the ECU. There are 3 main types: flashing (e.g., Cobb AP, open-source), piggyback (e.g., UTEC), and standalone (e.g., AEM, Hydra). The most popular form of engine management is the Cobb AP, as it's easy to use, and pretty user friendly. This would put you at StageII.

    Many people stop there, as you'll need to get into turbo upgrades beyond that (which will require supporting modifications, as well as a profesisonal tune).

    If you want to handle better, look into sway bars and springs.

    I'm actually considering doing the backup camera on my car as well. I just haven't decided whether or not it's really worth it yet.

    Skip the BOV, and go with the snorkel delete (silencer delete). This will give you the effect of a BOV, without the negative effects (running rich) of a BOV. STi's come stock with BBS rims, so don't pay extra for them
