    ditch the bov. Put a TBE on and get a tune. That's good for some more power, better spool, etc. The sti isn't perfect susppension-wise, but it's set up pretty well. Bushings, upgraded swaybars/endlinks and, if you have the cash to drop, springs/struts.

    I agree with poly, first thing you should do is find someone with a stock BPV and trade them for your BOV.

    It'll be a while before you want to do an intake... Turbo cars don't need it until it really chokes the turbo into hotter operation... And before that, it screws up the maf.

    The Pro-Kit springs are nothing to write home about on the STI, and neither are those sways. 25mm hollow is probably about as stiff as 22mm solid, and only the rear is adjustable (2-way at that).

    It wouldn't be a bad buy, but I would save up a few extra $$ and spend the money on other parts.

    What poly said. gonna want to hold off the intake as installing one will most likely require a tune anyways :O

    Why not start out with creature comforts if they haven't been done yet, such as window tint, stereo, speakers, subs, amp, and maybe a short shifter w/ bushings? You'll appreciate those more on a daily basis versus adding a heap of power and lowering it... After you get that done move onto engine management,bushings, TBE, and swaybars w/endlinks when you start to get bored with it... If you still feel the need to go past that then look into major suspention mods as well as bigger turbos and the other required mods to opperate them... welcome and congratulations, post pics...
