I just got a 2008 WRX Hatch. I am wanting to do the beginners mods first. As of right now it has a cat back exhaust, AEM intake, lowered and 17" rims. I am new to this gas thing, been tuning and makeing diesels go fast. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks any addvise for me would be greatly appreciated
Sorry about that. I am looking to do so quick DIY engine mods, Suspension mods that would compliment the car already being lowered, what gauge placements look the best in the Hatch, I already have boost, egt, and fuel pressure.

Your next step is a downpipe and a tune.
EQTuning is a pretty well-respected shop not too far from you. Contact them when you're ready to install the downpipe and see what Ed has to say.

you can still do an a-pillar pod with side air bags? car has been aligned and I was told that the tires were good. I am used to 38" tires. lol.
What tires are on the car? The tires are the most important aspect of the way the car handles.Originally Posted by steve02008
What alignment specs you have? OE spec sucks in terms of performance.
The tires that are on it are Dunlop DIREZZA Sport Z1 225-45R-17. It was aligned to stock specs. The tire company is who told me the tires were good. Like I said I don't know one way or the other.
So is it or is it not possible to do A-pillar gauges with SAS.
Should I be installing a boost controler on it? If so what would be recommened for stock tuneing for now?
If you have Z1 Star Specs, you've got great tires! I still recommend going with a custom alignment. There is a sticky in the suspension subforum which will give you a decent idea.Originally Posted by steve02008
My alignment is as follows:
-1.5° Camber F
-1.0° Camber R

-1.5° is about the maximum you can pull out of the front with the stock hardware (sometimes you can only get -1.2-1.3°); I have camber plates on my car, but I didn't want to go too much more aggressive than that. I like a little less camber in the rear, so I asked for a half degree difference (required rear camber bolts, which were ~$40 from my dealership).Originally Posted by jd92677

do you have a tune for that intake?
