    For bang for the buck, without removing cats get the Accessport.

    skip intake.

    get AP.

    borla hush from daddys is the best twin tip and the cheapest price on borla around.

    youre lookin at a grand though and that exceeds "not much money"

    If you have a stock WRX then I say the best cheap bang for the buck would be a catless uppipe. That should only run you a couple hundred bucks if that. Next would be the rest of the exhaust.

    As everyone else said, skip the intake. You don't need it until you have a stage 4 car.

    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.

    If you don't mind getting your hand dirty while breaking federal law and contributing to global polution problems, all the while making lots of noise:

    1. Remove your up-pipe, gut it (do a search for how-to), replace it.
    2. Get some management on the used market - check the for-sales.
    3. Buy a used stock down-pipe. Chop it. Have your local exhaust shop bend up some 2.5" piping. Weld from the chopped downpipe fitting to the stock muffler. Or, buy a used aftermarket downpipe, have said shop fit the rest together using the stock muffler.

    You are looking at over 20 kW for not a tremendous amount of money - plus potential fines etc.

    PS The stock car is not lacking power; I'd start from the wheels up for mods but that's only IMO.

    my first mod was a Silencer Delete Elbow, not a real performance mod, but made it sound a little better.

    as you can see the stock one is ugh!!!
