    Another Newbie w/ lots of ?s

    Purchased 09 Obsidian Black Pearl WRX Wagon Friday !!

    Saturday she spent all day in the shop getting the font end protected w/ 3M Clear Bra and blacked out w/ 15% NFC nonmetallic tint.

    With this being my first turbo, what should be performance mod path be, where do I begin? Please don't flame me, I've used the search button.

    It seems the path shouldn't include a CAI right away, but instead include CB exhaust then ECU re-flash. What manufacture?

    But, would my path have to be different with the altitude here in Denver and the fact in a few years she'll have to pass emission testing? I saw one post about having the engine professional tuned in an effort to offset some of the loss due to the altitude...should I start there first?

    Thank you for helping point me in the right direction.

    Get a full turboback exhaust (downpipe + catback) and then a tune. You'll be pretty happy.

    Don't neglect your suspension! Springs and swaybars are miracle workers. As are good break pads!

    x2. There's no sense in paying for power you can't use.
