    Welcome, I recently picked up an '06 Limited, 5sp.

    If you've got a turboback, I hope it's tuned, or you have some aftermarket EM control. If not take care of that ASAP.

    What kind of EM you got? What kind of numbers does an auto make with TBE?

    you thinking about headers or UP at all, theres 3 cats to get rid of so it takes more than a TBE to rid your car of them all.

    nope just 2. one in the midpipe & one in the DP


    thats for a pre-06 but you basically just eliminate the cat in the UP.

    all sti's have a catless UP too

    Don't waste your $$$ on the short rams or the turbo inlets. Not worth the $$$ and gains are minimal. If you are happy with the current power output then look into suspension(sway bars, springs, etc...) Or you can save up some more $$$ and do a turbo swap.
