    Not quite a new member but soon to be back In the wrx club again!!!

    So after 4 boring years of being responsible when choosing cars the wife and I just put an order for a new 2012 wrx hatch! Can't wait to get back into tinkering. My last wrx was an 04 what new fun things can I do to the new ones?

    Pretty much the same game, however the following actually make a difference now:

    BPV is not as good as they were, it needs replaced to be worthwhile

    Up Pipe isnt really needed as it is catless

    Intakes actually increase power after the 2008 model change

    Boost control solonoids are pretty popular now

    Replacing the TMIC would be a good idea as well.
    Fixed myself.

    This will mainly be my wife's daily driver. What would be the best first mod to make? From doing research I would almost say the CAI to open up the airways and let some of that sound out as well.

    No. Read the threads. Any mod you take you are going to need to tune for it. If you put an intake on you are going to have to run a tune.
