    Just bought 07 wrx, help with mods?

    Hey, what's going on people? I am new to the wrx family, so do not mind my ignorance about knowledge of Subaru motors. I am a rotary guy, but the wrx will be my daily driver. Just have some questions about modding? My 07 only has 15k on motor with spt exhaust and intake. Not even sure if that exhaust is good or not? Anyway, I am looking to do some mods, nothing serious. Any suggestions? maybe a downpipe and up-pipe, or maybe i just need one of them? or headers? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks
    Rob

    Sounds like you picked up a nice car I just recently picked up an 06 Wrx myself. As for modding, many argue that on the 06/07's for any downpipe a tune is required. Some people run without one but I would strongly recommend one just to be safe. From what I have read the SPT exhaust holds its own. I might have read somewhere that it becomes noticeably restrictive at around 400 to 450whp but do not quote me on this.

    So far I have done some minor exterior/ interior mods to keep myself busy but ultimately it comes down to what your looking for. I have done this just to try and keep my factory warranty which is also another big debate whether work will be performed with mods(Dealer dependent so they say) But all in all what do you want from the car handling, power, looks etc.

    ^ read that

    cliffnotes:

    downpipe, catback, TUNE (it IS a must for 04+ wrx's & all sti's that have aftermarket downpipes)


    you dont need to get an uppipe because ours are already catless. you could get an aftermarket one if you want but it's not really required or necessary unless you're doing an upgraded turbo & need more airflow or somethin' :]
