Just wanted to say hello. Picked up a 2008 WRX w/23k miles about a month ago. Very happy with purchase and car. I'm not new to Subarus, I've owned 2 outbacks, 2.5 RS, and currently a Forrester is my everyday vehicle. I don't plan on doing a lot to the WRX, some mods on the agenda: cold air intake and short shifter. I welcome all suggestions and I look forward to gaining some knowledge from the forum.
Welcome to the forum.
Accessport + COBB SF Intake = BEST MOD EVAR!!!!!
Agreed with Meebs...
Short throw shifter seems to be a good call.
I wouldn't go with the CAI. If you aren't too heavy into a huge amount of power, I'd look into redoing the exhaust, and getting a good tune. Tuning is oddly important with these cars it seems.
Past that I'd let the suspension soak up what money you have left.
If you want any more power than that, just do some reading around here on the stickies. They have some great info as well as Unabomber's posts: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=533787
