    Welcome!

    Don't do anything. Just keep the car maintained according to the manufacturer's schedule.

    A catback exhaust will add a nice rumble, but little or nothing in extra power.

    I have the SPT on my 09 WRX and I really like it. I would recommend listening to one and riding in a car that has one first though. I have read in a few places that it is a little loud for some. Congrats on the car!!

    I have never herd an SPT exhuast but it looks very quiet and prob expensive since its a factory part. I have never looked at SPT prices but i know NISMO **** is outrageous. Im sure they dont care about adding a cat back since it doesn't void any warranty. I would still ask tho.

    Hey you can do whatever you want to the car... Just keep the factory parts and when your lease is coming up just replace them all

    The factory BPV is good to about 24 psi, so unless you're boosting more than that, an aftermarket BOV isn't necessary. Along with the turbo timer, you don't need it.

    Welcome btw.
