    Thx... after the 200mile mark I am more and more impressed. According to the digital fuel economy gauge im getting 24.3mpg, me and the kids fit comfortable in it, and i wiggled it thru some curves.

    I cant wait to get 1000-1200 miles on it to see what it can do.

    Ohh ya.. Im picking up downpipe, intercooler, equal length header, and cold air kit from my dads friend that traded his 2012 in on a new GT mustang. I dont think I will put them on anytime soon but i couldnt pass up all 4 for $400 dollars.

    ya i know.. i love the UEL sound. He wants to sell it all to me in a package deal so I will just sell the header seperately later. Whatever I get for it will go towards the Cobb AP.

    I knew i couldnt leave the car stock...

    My neighbor has an ever evolving '91 Mustang project car. He'd likely agree. We have both driven the others' cars. He was quite surprised with me WRX.

    Good lord...what brands are they? TMIC?

    And just know you can't put the parts on UNTIL you have a tuning solution already in hand.

    Nice automobile sir. Plasma blue was my first choice but none in area and didn't want to wait to order so I picked up obsidian black pearl 5door. Happy with my black WRX now that I have it but the plasma blue pearl is definitively a more unique color! The look also changes slightly depending on the lighting. Enjoy.

    Update**

    I bought the items and it was a:
    CNT Catless D/P with hardware to connect to stock midpipe (CNT performance 08-09 Subaru WRX / STI Catted Down-pipe) retails $210
    CNT Topmount I/C (CNT Racing (PW style) Subaru WRX top mount intercooler 08-12) retails $640 with jetblack coating
    No brand on it but it is a nice design and welds on it ELH
    Tantrix Tuning Cable retails for $170
    AEM Fenderwell CAI retails for $250
    5ply rugged intake hose

    so as of now they are just stashed in my closet.. til I put some miles on the car.. currently at 1500.

    In the next week or so I am going to pull the trigger on a exhaust kit. I am really liking the Invidia Q300 setup and for $920 its in my price range. Any other kits out there with this approx. price and craftsmanship. I would really like to stick with full stainless also. Does anyone have the CNT catback?

    I have also been looking at gauges so I can get ready to tune the car. I have always run Autometer gauges in the mustangs in the past. I found the Autometer ES series gauges and they look to be similar to the lighting in the dash. Thoughts?http://www.autometer.com/cat_gaugeop.aspx?sid=67
