    Nooby to the Scooby questions

    Hello, i just got an aspen white 02 wrx! Its a very fun car to drive! The previous owner just had the tranny rebuilt (wouldnt you know, 2nd gear blew out), so hopefully i wont have to deal with that anytime soon.

    Here is a list of the mods(from what i know so far):
    AEM cold air intake
    2.5"(i think) Magnaflow cat-back exhaust
    samco hoses
    downpipe(idk brand)
    uppipe(idk brand)
    the car is lowered, but idk what kind of suspension system it is

    No adjustments have been made to the turbo.
    Since i'm new to all of this, could you answer these questions:
    With these mods, will the car need tuned or will the ecu adjust for optimal performance?
    How much hp is gained from these mods?

    Thanks, i'm glad to join the WRX world!

    The beauty with the 02 is that you can run those mods without EM (engine management) however, to get the full benefit of them some sort of tune is needed, i.e. protune, Cobb AP, etc....

    In the lowering process did they just use springs or did they replace the struts/shocks also?
