    Current set up- 2003 WRX 5MT 100% Stock

    Plans

    I am 100% confident with doing my own ECU flash

    UP Pipe Turbo XS Uppipe with flex section

    Down Pipe - Invidia Catless Bellmouth Downpipe

    CBE - Borla Twin Tip "Hush" Exhaust with 3 inch adaptor pipe

    I'm actually looking at gauges myself. I've been looking at the DiFi and the Blitz set up so far. There are literally thousands of choices though. It really depends on what you feel is essential to your project. Some gauge set ups give you multiple functions but are not always the most accurate. Most companies that can sell you the gauges as a packaged deal and/or individual usually have the most accurate read outs. I'm still working things out with my local shop but i still have some time before we get the bonus refund from the gov later this year.

    Sounds like a good setup. Something to consider -

    By the time you get the flange adapter for the Borla you will be in the same price range as the Maddad twin tip that comes already 3". IMHO a nicer piece, and no welding required. My only affiliation is that I got one of their downpipes and was pleased.

    Twin tip version:

    Of this system:

    The place also sells the Borla and the adapter flange for easy comparison:

    Their gauges are also pretty popular around here.
