Proud owner of a 2006 WRX Wagon -- my second one. My '02 went 105,000 miles before a young man rear-ended me on Thanksgiving.
New and blue one has 18,000 miles and is in need of more power and more stopping power. I personally find the handling to be fine and while I know there is always room to improve that aspect, power and stopping power are my main concerns.
What I would love to know is the best way to go about doing this. While far from rich, I am also far from poor, single and ready to commit.
So, let me have it!

Thank you very much.
That is exactly the thread I was looking for.
I'm sure there is also a thread about where to get all this done? Or at least where to buy the parts? While not a mechanic, I think I can swap out pips and fluids.... maybe.
Very glad I found this place
I live in Los Angeles, CA -- near downtown.
Check out www.gruppe-s.com aswell then, I'm on the other side of the country so I don't know how far they are from you but they are in California.
EDIT: and post some pics of the car
The car is going to stay 100% stock on the outside.
The blue already attracts cops as it is.
1st off Welcome to the club! I am glad to see you stayed true to Subaru even after the accident!
2nd, post in your Regional Forum (South Western States - California) to meet fellow WRX owners and to find out where the best/cheapest/knowledgable tuners and install shops are in LA-downtown.
good luck and POST PICS!

Hey, you've followed the exact same route that I did. I started with a silver '02 wagon, and have since upgraded to a blue '06 wagon. For my first mods, I went with a Cobb bellmouth downpipe and Cobb AccessPort. As long as the downpipe has the 2.5" taper at the end it will mate up with the stock CBE. I'm at stage 2, and the power is incredible. Start there for less than $1,000, and see how happy you are with it. The new AccessPorts are coming out soon, so it may be worth the wait for those. You might be able to pick up a cheap used v1.0 if you don't mind the old AccessPort. Let me know if you have any other questions. Good luck.
