    just a new kid on the block

    i just bought a 2002 Subaru Wrx silver wagon and i love it, will post pics later but was just wondering of what you guys think of this i found a v1 AP tuner for $240 is a good deal is it worth it, i just want my car to be a little faster than stock and just a nice ride nothing to fancy just fun. so what you think i should do first?


    crappy pic but you get the point.

    Welcome. If you want more HP then CAI, TBE, tune, and a BOV.

    Welcome

    A V1 AccessPORT is an alright investment, but it is no longer being supported by Cobb, so if you have any issues, you may not be able to get any help if you need it.

    Here are a few links that may be helpful:
    First Modifications - what to do and not to do
    Attn '02-'05 WRX Owners: The Importance of the Uppipe Mod
    Exhaust FAQ
    Driveline Mounts/Bushings FAQ

    I included the last one because while not everyone focuses on those modifications, in terms of a day-to-day bang/buck modification, it's tough to beat driveline mounts and bushings.

    FIXED. (I know you're new Dark WRX, might want to research around a bit more and see why a CAI isn't worth it's cost for arguably minimal HP gains at best (unless you're getting a custom tune you could possibly see 10hp, but if you just go Cobb, then don't bother) and a BOV is just an expensive noisemaker).

    BoV is completely unnecessary. Replace that with up-pipe and silicon y-pipe on your list and you're golden.

    I know the minimal gains of a CAI. And not really a fan of loud bovs. I have a full recirc. And have it soft set for minimal noise. Thank you for the fix though.

    dont listen to this at all, read the stickies and the links provided. You'll probably find you want to go stage 2.

    But most definitly get a catless uppipe asap, then downpipe and catback with tune. Start there, you'll be happy

    Alright. Alright. Sorry if my input was subpar. So yeah read the stickies and that will lead the way. I put that idea out because that was my stage 2 setup. Perrin down, up, exhaust, cai, bov and cobb ap.

    Apologies from the noob. Please guys (brfatal, Garrett, speed) whip this boy (me) into shape.
