    Not sure what to add next... Help?

    Ok so this is my first post but I have been reading for awhile. I purchased a 2010 WRX Sedan in January and since then I have added the following mods...
    Tien Super Street Coilovers
    Invidia N1 CBE
    Invidia Catted DP
    Cobb UP
    Cobb Short Throw Shifter
    Cobb V3 Accessport
    Cobb SF Intake with Box
    GrimmSpeed Heat Shield

    I am wondering what I should look into now to gain more power. I am at Stage 2 but I dont know where to go from here. Help me out?

    I would do a little brake work. Maybe at least some SS lines, new fluid, and pads. That will make a big difference in stopping power. Then maybe some bushing work (shifter bushings if you haven't done it), rear diff lock down, etc. As far as power goes, what are your ultimate goal? Are you planning on keeping the stock turbo? That will make a big difference in where you go next.

    you can go Stg3
    If you must need more power then that just save up for an engine build.

    I would go with swaybars end links engine mount upgrades etc

    Blech, not a fan of halos on any car except for BMWs, where they belong.

    Thanks for the advice! I do have some bushings though so I dont know what else I would get. I have the Whiteline Steering Rack Bushings, Cobb Tuning Shifter Bushings, STi Transmission Mount, and Whiteline Gearbox Positive Shift Kit.

    I guess I am not looking to do anything huge at the moment when it comes to upgrading turbos or major engine work so it would not really make sense to do injectors and intercooler stuff right?

    Thanks for the link! I will take a look at that. Looks like I would only need a few more items to go Stage 3.

    Process West top mount intercooler?

    I know this wouldn't net much gain without a tune...but it has to be much more efficient. And man they look gorgeous on top of the engine bay

    It's not much help, but I'm just thinking out loud.
