    See the link in my signature for more info on any/all modifications. I prefer the stock intake.

    Greetings and welcome to the Club!

    It is already a fairly well designed cold air intake. Stock intake on my WRX with the snorkus delete.

    Replace the up-pipe if it hasn't already been done, before any mods

    Up pipe, TBE, protune should be first as far as power. Short shifter with bushings, sway bars and endlinks are great mods also. Snorkus delete, drop in filter, and wideband gauge. That should get you started.
