had my 100% STOCK 03 WRX now for about 9 months, was going to keep it stock, drive it for awhile and then maybe get an STI, but i cant wait and im going to mod this one for awhile. ive been into cars/trucks for many years now, but mostly trucks and ive never had a turbo and never had a subie so i had a few questions.
1) lowering... i would like to drop her a couple inches so i was looking into springs, then i saw somewhere i needed new struts too? is this correct? i was looking at some tien (sp?) springs, and i see alot of people selling STI struts, wondering if these will work, or what kind of struts i need to buy.
2) exhaust... i see most major exhausts are pretty expensive, am i better to bite the bullet and spend the money or is there something comperable to the big names without the big $$?
3) tuner... thinking the cobb tuning accessport, again, is there better or same for less $$?
4) is there anything i need to do to this car right away to make it better, like sway bars, or any other adjustments i need to know about? i know about the uppipes, but i know there has to be more "need to do" mods other than that.
thats about it for starters, the rest i can play around with. thanx in advance for all replies, i look to start buying stuff this week cause i cant stand a stock vehicle any longer. THANX!
