    So should i get this before this?

    I was reading around and i'm a little confused about which to buy first, the up pipe and downpipe and TBE? or should i get the Cobb First?

    Also so a drop in filter would do fine? Like a K&N or HKS?

    Also what about the GP moto intake elbow and silencer removal pipe? JSCspeed offers for 39 bucks? Anything bad with this? (i.e. messing the maf sensor up)

    +1

    AP first, load the stage 1 map.
    TBE (or just a downpipe) second, load stage 2 map
    Filter whenever, just don't get a cold air intake

    silencer mod just makes your car louder and draws more attention.
    imo leave the stock airbox alone. it flows enough air untill you upgrade the turbo and go completely nuts.
    after these steps get mods for stopping better and cornering better.
    or just sell it and get an sti!!

    It doesn't really matter what order you go in, although most people that get either just the AP or TBE go with the AP first.

    Just fyi about the elbow.. as far as I know, they're backordered pretty much everywhere. Also, cutting/taping the factory airbox works just as well.

    For the best results, I recommend getting the AP, TBE, DP, UP, and filter and doing it all at once. Gets you the best SOTP feeling... I mean, thats what I did...

    Ok well that definitely sounds good, then i'll tell her to just get the drop in filter now with her springs and i'll wait till they arrive to change the oil over to Mobil 1 5w-30 and the K&N oil filter that i have sitting here at my house then.

    I am just shocked as to how different the subaru wrx is compared to a 240sx with a silvia swap. Looks like i've got alot of reading to do. Since my 240sx is getting rebuilt now.
