    Why these two as first mods? In other words, why sound vs performance mods?

    ps - I, and many others, would not recommend the BOV, now or ever.

    Yes, an Accessport would be a MUCH smarter starting point. :-) Know your goals and do your reading. If you want 300HP (at the crank, not the wheels), a stage 1 tune (Perrin or Cobb) will get you close to that (260ish). There are plenty of threads on here for recommended first mods that will save you time and money...as well as help you avoid creating issues down the road.

    Cobb's Maps for your car - cobb . wrx accessport . map listing
    Stage 1: +16% HP / +21.8% lb-ft
    Stage 2 (w/ downpipe): +19% HP / +28% lb-ft.

    If you want to hear your stock BOV and get a few more hp/tq, you can add an intake (Cobb's SFI or AEM's CAI), and use the appropriate map for it:
    Cobb SFI: http://accessecu.com/accessport/suba...SF-Intake.html (I recommend this one)
    AEM CAI: http://accessecu.com/accessport/suba...EM-Intake.html

    Be fast, not loud.

    Cobb's maps are free. Perrin charges for theirs, unless you buy the Acccessport from them. So order the Accessport from Perrin. It will come with their maps on it. Then download Cobb's. Try both out. Yes, I personally prefer Cobb's maps (safer boost levels), but other's like Perrin.

    Yep, that way you can try both for $595. Cobb makes their money on selling the Accessport, and gives their maps away. Others (like Perrin) buy the Accessport from Cobb, put their maps on it, and resell it.
