    Arrow New here

    well i just bought a 2002 wrx with 49k on it.. all stock except short ram intake and bov.. .







    came from this



    Turbo grand prix... yes turboed not supercharged.. 62trim turbonetics turbo front mount and all the goodies in between.. ran low 12's but in the impreza im looking for more backroad fun.

    As far as mods look to start im looking at h-brace, front and rear strut bars to start.

    I assume you have read they are not the best choice in mods?

    They shouldn't cause any "damage" but may make your car run rich/lean or give you a slightly rough idle. Basically you have 2 "noise" mods, nothing more.

    Have fun man.

    yea those mods really don't do anything but make that "psshhh" sound that everyone seems to love. try to go back to stock asap and buy a downpipe and uppipe for some real mods. you'll feel the difference and you'll here the turbo spool as well

    Honestly I love that "pshhhh" sound. I wouldn't put one on but that doesn't mean I don't love it. "PSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH"
    ...small hole...lots of pressure...hmmmm...wouldn't that start to make a whistling sound actually? Oh well.

    Hey if you love the sound get the Spt intake. I have one on my 06 and it sounds sweet. You can definetly here the stock BPV and the car runs pretty good with it. I don't know if I gained any power, but if all I got out of it was the noise it was worth it to me.
