    Welcome to the Club! Personal preferences will vary, but you will see a lot of people on here with Cobb Tuning and TurboXS stuff. I prefer APS personally, but Cobb and TurboXS definately build quality pieces. Just a tip, get some engine management as your first power enhancer.

    be sure to listen to people on this forum; there are some extremely knowledgable wrx owners that can tell you the ins and outs of the machine. though i would suggest searching before you ask a question

    Engine Management Unit? LOL. Yes, that is the best 1st engine mod. Vishnu is a good company but most people here run Cobb, UTEC, or EcuTek. Vishnu has a different stages than the other companies, they can be complicated (stage 0, then stage 1 = Stage 2 of everyone else, they use pulley's, etc. gets confusing).

    Just read the forum stickies and you will find everything you need.

    Lets keep the female product use to a minimum. If he said that to you it would be sexual harassment.
