    Exclamation Just Bought my first SUBARU!!

    Hey everyone!

    I'm glad to be a part of the AWD family Finally!!! I just purchased a 2002 WRX Hatch 5-speed and I can't wait to get started on it!

    I have a few questions on some quick fixes and the best order to start my project.

    FIRST- I wanna go in and change the factory headlight settings so I don't have constant running lights and I know my friend can just plug in an OBD2 on his audi and reprogram it so I want to know if Subaru is the same way and also if anyone knows any quick and easy things to improve the car just starting out that would be awesome!

    SECONDS- I'm planning to make this a nice looking street car with somewhere in the realm of 300 hp and good stance and handling. (nothing too extreme) and I wanna get opinions on a good order in which to do the build. I guess I'm gonna start with a little power then do some cosmetics and the stance. Any input on good ways to start getting more power out of my engine would be much appreciated!

    Oh perfect! Beacause I was looking at replacing the intake hoses and intake first but I know turbo cars are different than NA so I have to learn the ways of the boost!

    Thanks for the heads up that makes a lot more sense! Any preferences on exhaust systems? I like the was the APEXi Noir system looks but I don't want something obnoxious rattling my car to shreds.

    Thank to Everyone! And I'm just getting started with this car so it'll be probably a month before I get going on the project but I'm really excited! I'll probably have questions on exhaust piping and intake tubing soon though!
