    Might want to think about getting a tune with that mod.

    WELCOME!!!
    I think some pictures of your ride are needed =)

    I dont think mid 12's are quite possible... i'm thinking mid to low 13's are probably more like it.. but if anyone wants to correct me on this.. got for it =) haha

    Injen intake absolutely requires custom tuning for the car. Until you get that taken care of you really should take it off.

    It would have to be a custom tune made for the car with that intake on it. You can't use the free OTS maps.

    I recommend that you get a pro-tune. Treat your car nicely and it will last a long time. Research each and every mod thoroughly to save yourself money. Honestly I would recommend that you work on paying off the car before you start seriously modding. Good luck.

    Theoretically, the car could be in the 12's with a stage 2 tune and TBE. But... more depends on the driver to get you there

    Im assuming TBE= turbo back exhaust if so im looking into cobbs downpipe and SPT cat back exhaust. Plus i like how the combo sounds ^ ^. Would like to hear others feedback on different companys as well. Plus ill most will put back on the stock intake when i bring it to the track and see how i run stock. I was pretty good at launching my MR car. I got the shifting down on the subu. Heard the 5 speed trans are like glass so cant be quick shifting it. Just need to practice launching AWD. What would be a good rpm to ride the clutch out from a launch ??

    I hear yay on that halfway down with loan ^-^....... i would say im a reserved driver so treating the baby nicely is like a everyday thing for me. plus just want to stick with basic bolt ons for now. Saving money for house is my main priority. Once you go All wheel drive your handles is more alive..
