    Welcome to the forum and congrats on the purchase.

    I would suggest starting with an accessport and then going from there. If you need a pricing on any parts let me know.

    Have looked at the access ports...not sure if i want to go too deep into messing with the ECM yet(i think thats what they allow you to do?) am seriously looking into the K&N air intake here

    and this instrument panel for a boost gauge and one other one??

    Code:

    Really new at this stuff so want to keep it relatively simple and stock for now and as cheap as possible but not cheap in garbage parts and install....am a firm believer in you get what you pay for.....and sorry if this is not posted in right area, re direct if out of line...

    Thanks

    The reason I'm saying you need an accessport is because you want to get an intake. You're not going to any real power without a tune and you may get check engine lights due to lack of tuning. Accessports are extremely safe tunes and should be the least of your worries.

    Yeah, any additions, other than a CBE, will require a tune for the engine.

    The Cobb Accessport is pretty solid at $595, I don't think I've ever seen a different price, so you can really buy it from anyone you trust will get it to you. It's a do it yourself thing, supposed to be pretty easy, but if you have any problems I've only heard good things about Cobb's customer service.

    Congrats on the purchase! I just bought a '12 WRB STi Hatch this past weekend as well, amazing car! It's almost painful to drive my Legacy back and forth to work...might just have to take the STi tomorrow. Street parking is why I haven't done so yet.

    The K&N Air Intake is super loud, trust me I bought one & you do need to get a tune afterwards. I tried just doing the Air Intake w/out the tune and I'm pretty sure I lost power and for sure responsiveness (not dyno tested however).
    It's named the Typhoon for a reason, it sounds like one is following you around!! If you like the sound of a loud turbo spin, you'll like this intake though. Good luck.
