    Catch up on all required maintenance preferring authentic Subaru parts. Then mod as little as possible. See the link in my signature for info.

    Its up to your personal preference, I do not have alot of experience so I can't give you details and first to do mods besides telling you to do an intake and an exhaust to start... you'll end up boring the block like I did if you are really power hungry...

    The car doesn't need an intake. It will need a map for an exhaust. See link in my signature.

    Do all the maintenance first, so put nothing but good synthetic in. After that, let me know if you want any modification suggestions and pricing.

    Congrats on the new car.

    all maintenance done and first thing I did was change the oil the dealer had put in it, since they couldnt answer me what they used. I'm looking for fair basic mods nothing extravagant yet. One of the first thing has to be tint this fish bowl look is no good.

    They probably did not put any good oil in it.
