    Well, from a quick once-over, I do know that the radiator is not original it is much larger it seems, there's an aftermarket strut bar, it has an STi exhaust, optima battery, some sort of bumper lip and side skirt, and my favorite is the uber tacky boost gauge that doesn't even light up at night. What do i plan to do with it? Obviously the first change I plan on making is taking care of the bumper. It has a 2004 front bumper that someone threw on there once. Doesn't fit, looks dumb. I would also love to switch to an invidia exhaust, I have heard great things and anything will sound better than the STi one I have now. Lastly, BOV. Before you cringe, I will do my homework and make sure I make the right choice so as not to run too rich. After those necessary changes, I will probably go buckwild and mod everything :-P until then, any suggestions on the things I mentioned to start with?

    The link in my sig is a good place to start reading.

    I would also suggest taking some pics of the engine bay and posting up here. Maybe some of the experienced eyes here should take a looksie and see if you have anything else going on.
