    New to the forum

    Hey everyone, I just got a 2007 WRX a week and a half ago and i'm stoked for what's to come with it. I'm always looking for good advise with mods and what not because i've never owned a Subaru before. So any help at all will be greatly appreciated.

    The first question i have is what is the best thing to start with on mods? exhaust? intake? and what kind has the best performance? I have a lot of friends that give me suggestions but they've also never owned a Subaru....so i don't want to take what they say to seriously.

    Look to hearin from everyone!

    Hello, welcome. Best place to start is tyres. Then work your way up and inward.

    Otherwise, see my signature for links with info.

    Agreed - you can't run fast without the correct shoes.

    Welcome!! Read the stickies, be patient. Any mod that you want to do to your car should be researched BEFORE deciding. It'll save you and your car all sorts of problems.

    Please share photos too!! We wanna see your ride!! Welcome to the family!!

    Thanks for the info! I'll definitely be updating pictures as I add to the car. Is there a certain place to post those pictures? or should should I just make a new thread?

    One last question for now. I've been reading up on intake and the only concern I have is hydrolock with a cold air because I live in the valley of Oregon. If you guys know anything about Oregon...it rains alot lol so the question I have is if the fenders of the 07 take in much water above the wheel well?
