    Turbo back exhaust, VF39 turbo, walbro fuel pump, engine management. Should put you in the 300awhp range and 350ish ftlbs range. I have a 07, so thats close to what I am going to hope to lay down once I put my VF39 on and tune it.

    Just out of curiousity... how do model years work there?

    In the US the first year of the "hawk-eye" was MY06, and ended in MY07... but in Japan, they called it the MY05, and MY06 (MY stands for model year)


    Welcome though... I'm an 06 owner, and firmly believe it was the best year of the WRX

    I mean its worth it, I have spent a total of maybe $1300 in parts to reach that. But I have access to free tuning so I can not complain. with out that I would be in the $2000 range on power mods.

    i s that usd$ sounds cheap.
    sent email to local place that does performance stuff and they quoted me $800 AU for exaust $500 AU for cold air intake and $1800 for tune.
    im thinking just a tune would be the go how much does this sort of upgrade help?
    cars seem so cheap in the states looking at this site
    i paid 28k AUD for my wrx which is like 25k USD...

    +1 I did so much research to come to the conclusion that the 06 was teh best(at least getting used for > 20k usd). Welcome, and I know you already love it.
