    New to me 2002 WRX. Need Help

    Hey Guys this is my first Subaru.
    Received it Tuesday and it is a complete joy to drive.
    Saving up some money to do some mods. Nothing crazy just stuff to help out the engine breath a little better.
    This is my first turbo'd car as well.
    So if you guys could just let me know what is the best bang for the buck for improving efficiency. CAI?
    Also, I have a black WRX hood scoop. Where do I find a World Rally Blue STI one, either 2003 or 2004, though id like to keep the bug eye to the bug eye, but Im open to options.
    Thanks Guys!

    CAI is pretty much useless on your car. The first thing it needs is a catless uppipe, after that a tune, or a downpipe and a tune.. that's where the restrictions are.



    You can simply have the scoop painted to match the rest of your car. Any competent body shop could do that for you. The STi one would require a new splitter as well.

    I don't (someone should.. or just google it).. although a body shop would be better off just matching it rather than going by the code.

    The color code is on the car itself. Check the placard.
