    My 1st WRX - 2009 Premium

    Hello - I just purchased my 1st. WRX - 2009 Premium with SPT Catback Exhaust and I'm hoping this forum group will accept me and help with a few questions:

    Does the Catback Exhaust increase horsepower?

    Will adding a SPT Cold Air Intake increase horsepower?

    When should I do my 1st. oil change?

    When can I drive the car hard? Should I adhere to the 1,000 mile breakin period?

    Will adding a hood scope grill protect negatively affect the turbo intake?

    I really appreciate any responses and other advise.

    NO

    Will adding a SPT Cold Air Intake increase horsepower?
    NO <Somewhat debatable but the short answer is no.>

    When should I do my 1st. oil change?
    Debatable but somewhere between 1000-3000 is generally accepted.

    When can I drive the car hard?
    Debatable As it depends on how you adhere to the break in.

    Should I adhere to the 1,000 mile breakin period?
    Debatable but I would.

    Will adding a hood scope grill protect negatively affect the turbo intake?
    Yes it will negatively affect the IC but how much is debatable. IMHO they look far far worse then a minor dent on the IC fins.

    I really appreciate any responses and other advise.
