    Just got my 2008 WRX blue today :)

    Just saying what's up to everyone
    Got my WRX 08' blue color used with 6k miles on it.. priced at 19,988...

    I was thinking of getting an exhaust first for my ride, with the blue tip.. for looks and sound Then a blow-off valve
    I don't know much about precise modifications, i just know the basics.. exhaust, cold-air intake, headers, rims etc etc

    Can anyone with a good amount of know how give me some advice in purchasing a new exhaust ?
    i.e. whether i should get a new exhaust (and @ 6k mileage) first.. or if i should wait to break it in more... would that void my warranty ?

    This is my to do list so far: tint, exhaust w/ blue tip, blow off valve (any tips on a good BOV?), lowering springs or coilovers (springs or coilovers anyone? ..), gold rims, blue or yellow HID lights.

    I'm very new to all of this, so anyone's advice and input would be appreciated.

    Congrats on the new car...

    Best advice SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!
    but if you have extra to spend then....
    1. Before you decide to do anything read this website and NASIOC and all the stickies until your eyes bleed or your head explodes (whichever comes first)..
    2. then decide if you really still want to do the "mods" your talking about (ie. BOV)
    3. then once you decide on which mods are actually worth your time and what you want out of your car (daily driver, drag, etc)..Research Research Research all the products before you go and buy some POS off ebay..
    4. Post pictures of your car
    5. Enjoy your new ride

    Yeah, your stock one. It's actually a BPV that recirculates and doesn't "blow off" in the atmosphere. As stated above, read all the stickies to learn more about your car and then go from there.

    Have fun with the car. Is it the premium package? navi? post pics also

    Hello, Welcome & Congrats.

    I agree with the others about the BOV. They are ONLY needed when you are in the HIGH HIGH horsepower, which most will never be so they won't need a BOV.

    Pretty sure even high PSI can find a BPV aftermarket that will hold the pressure..

    BOVs are not worth the time, effort or money. They will do damage to the engine.

    Hi and welcome to the club! It is good you are starting here instead of just throwing stuff on your car.


    Yeah, an intake & BOV are a waste or even bad.

    Exhaust wont do anything unless you do the downpipe too.

    Stick with springs/struts over coilovers.

    In fact forget everything you know about other cars and don't waste your time.

    How much do exhausts with downpipe usually go for ?

    I've seen a lot of threads here saying that BOV's are not bad at all for the engine... hmm
