    New to the WRX world

    Hello all,

    I just bought my first WRX 2 weeks ago I live in AZ and was looking for a specific WRX 04-05 bone stock with under 100k miles and around $10k. I found my beauty, had to travel to Tucson to get it but its worth it. It's been 7 years since I was in the car "mod game" my first car was a integra then a civic followed by lifted Tacoma. I always loved the WRX but could never afford one till now! I appreciate any help and tips with my new project. I purchased a PERRIN intake first, loved the way it sound and It had a little more power. Next I just bought and installed PERRIN turbo inlet hose, I feel/hear turbo spool earlier now but starting around 3500-4000 It feels slower when I just had the intake on. Is it possible I have too much intake and not enough exhaust at this point?? Plus what should my next mod be besides the obvious dp and exhaust that it needs.

    Congrats on the purchase and welcome to the forums. I know on the newer models you for sure need a tune when doing an intake!
