    New to forum and New to WRX and just back from deployment

    I have a 2009 WRX and bought it right before I deployed last year. Looking to buy some mods around a grand to spend and look to buy used as long as they are in good condition but will have questions and look forward to getting back into the forum style community. Thanks

    welcome home troop and welcome to the club wrx!

    any mods you do, like for example an intake, everyone is gonna tell you to get a tune done. id suggest getting all your engine mods put in at one time then have the car tuned. would be the most cost effective way of doing this. getting a car tuned can be expensive.
