I will start off my admitting I'm defiantly a rookie who has no idea what he is doing. I bought my 2008 wrx sedan because I wanted the all wheel drive for the winter but also, like everybody, like to feel that extra power you just can't get with the average Honda accord ya know? Anyways I'm now looking to replace my stock exhaust with a good after market system but have NO idea were to even start. I have done some research online but that just confuses me more. As you all probably know the 2008 wrx comes with this "dual" exhaust system and most of the good after market systems I have seen online have just one muffler. Wont my back bumper look funny with those two half-circle cut outs for the exhaust tips but with only one exhaust tip sticking out? Then I looked at some dual exhaust systems and thought they may be just a bit too much (in terms of style and professional upgrade) for a rookie like me. Money is not the problem I have a budget of around $1200. Is that enough or to little? Should I do some other smaller mods to the car BEFORE I get a new exhaust or is an after market exhaust considered to be a 'good' first mod? Any brand recommendations? My end goal is to add maybe a little more hp and get that cool sound I always hear with the other WRX's I see... and hear. PS I purchased a KEM cold air intake but never ended up installing it because I was told a cold air intake is a bad first mod and I should get an exhaust first THEN put the CAI on. Then I was told to first 'chip' my car. Then I was told to first upgrade my fuel injectors. Needless to say I'm confused. What order should I do all these mods in? Thanks everybody and sorry so long.
