    Hello all subby fans.

    I'm new on this site. Just got my first 06 wrx.
    It's still all stock but not for long
    There are couple of things I want to do but dont want to spend all my $$$ on mods.
    Injen intake system - costs around $280 and add 20hp ( is that true???)
    And of course cat back exhaust for better sound.
    Is there any cheap and good stuff I can use?
    No downpipe or catless, just cat back for now.
    Thank U

    put on the brakes before you start modding! injen is known to be a poorly designed intake & is not recommended whatsoever. definitely do a LOT of research before you even touch anything. some of us learned that the hard way lol
