    hello and some questions

    hi everyone. i'm a new user from texas. i've had an 02 wrx for a couple of years and have decided to start adding on. this will be my first attempt at automotive upgrading.

    i've got around $2k to play with right now and i've been looking at a cobb access port and an aps 3" turbo back. any thoughts? suggestions?

    Sounds like a good plan.

    thank you 04.spt.wrx

    as far as my plan goes, is there a big difference between the 3" and the 3.5"? would the 3.5 exhaust too much pressure from a relatively stock engine? like i said, i'm new to the car world, but from what i know of other mechanics i'd imagine some back pressure would still be necessary.

    Unless you are pushing insane numbers (> 500hp) a 3.5" will gain you nothing. 3" is fine for well over 400hp.
