    Early Stages of Car Modification

    Hey Everybody,

    I have a 2008 WRX with low millage, and so far everything i have done to it is cosmetic. With that in mind, i am defiantly looking to take the car to stage 1 in the next year or so...

    I was just wondering, and hoping, that someone might have suggestions for a mechanic in or near Westchester County NY, with excessive experience with Subaru's, preferably specifically with WRX's. I don't trust my baby in the hands of anyone but myself, so as soon as they go under the hood i need to know that there is nothing to be worried about.

    Please help me!!! any and all suggestions would be appreciated.

    Welcome. For the '08 WRX I'd jump straight to a turbo back exhaust and a tune; this will put you at similar peak power levels to an 09+ WRX. A basic ECU tune won't do any harm however; drive-ability will be much improved over the OEM tune. In the meantime bushings make a great deal of difference in feel of the car, a $30 set of shifter bushings can literally wow you. I wish all the bushings I've replaced were my first mods.
