    05 WRX new owner looking for any tips/suggestions

    I bought my 2005 WRX in late January. I specifically bought a stock one because I wanted to do all the work to it myself. The only problem is, is that I barely have a clue on where to start. Also, my income is limited, so my spending is also limited. I want to do whatever I can to improve this car. So any tips/suggestions that you could give me, it would be greatly appreciated.
    Here are some pictures of my car:

    By "improve" I mean that I want to modify the car with upgrades. Such as intake, air filter, BOV, etc. I don't know any good brand names for any type of mod, that's why I came here to fellow WRX enthusiasts .

    And thank you, I love this car

    Ahhh gotcha. I'll leave this one to the seasoned pros, my brain has absorbed what the best course for power with my car is, I don't know as much about the previous generations.
