    Perrin BOV 100% recirc (If i ever run more then 20psi)
    Turbo XS upgraded TMIC
    Tein Coilovers (in development) so H&R Sport Springs till they come out
    Set of lighter 17's
    Front and RSB
    SPT Motor Mounts (when made)
    Gauge Pod

    well a tune is obv so i didn't put that down and i'm still learning about the engine managment so thats another reason why that isn't down as well.

    Blimey someones been busy, don't you guys in the states ever go to sleep or are we talking breakfast time now 8am morning.

    Over this side of the pond it's 15:30 in the afternoon and I have been at work since 9:30 am this morning.

    Regarding Cobb accessport I think your going to get a mixed bag regarding some people swear by them and others would not touch them with a barge pole.

    Exmpale Tmann loves it Weasel hates it.

    Me I say whatever floats your boat baby.

    Thats the good thing about having a Subaru the tuning potential is amazing just look at the time Subaru Time Attack cars. They are f##king rapid.

    If I had my way I work all the hours and spend every penny on my Impreza thats how commited I am.

    But my advice would be enjoy modding your car like you would eating an expensive meal and a bottle of expensive wine.

    Cause if you rush it you won't enjoy it as much and when it's over the flavour won't linger.

    I know loads of people who rush to get their cars completed as fast as possible. Thats not my style.

    Everywhere you look companys all over the world will be trying to sell you one thing or another thats going to give you the edge, if it's cheap I would say steer clear unless the are good mates or family.

    I suppose you can tell I am passionate about my car but then thats why this forum is the daddy cause we all feel the same.

    Thanks guys but what do you think about the list?

    I am in no rush what-so-ever to get these things done. I'm just enjoying the car considering the thing is amazing. Only thing i rushed was ordering the SPT exhaust considering the price is so low right now.

    As for as the Cobb AP. I'd have to do a lot of reading up on it before I went and spent that money on it. Even then I prob won't get it cause my buddy does his own tuning on his subie so i'd just get him to do mine.

    I just love this damn car lol. I've put 300 miles on it in the 2 days ive had it cause I can't stop driving. Def cant wait to just get an exhaust on tho to really hear that baby pur.
