so i just baught a used wrx from a private seller....so far this car has seen hard times...was stolen and broken into on two seperate occasions...but bye some maricle the engine is still in tact and in excelent running order. so i purchased the car cheap and am using the extra money to pay for goodies for the car. "i allready set money aside to fix the essentails". everything is great except for the front and rear bumpers which are nothing short of sad. and the right fender has a large gash that is rusting...omg it made me cry. but. all that aside. i thought i would throw out a list of my first engine mods. i know there was a post about some good ones to start out with, but i just want to make sure im not going to run into any problems with things conlficting "heard it can happen". so besides having the facelift to my car under control heres what im looking for under the hood.
1.aem short ram intake "is cold air actualy better than short ram?" and i also heard that if you get a front mount intercooler then you can have cold air because they somewhat collide space wise."
2.turbo timer "do these really help keep your car running better...i know what they do..but advertisements have a tendancy to embelish :P.
3.dual stage boost controler. for that low and hi end boost. "heard people having problems setting the boost too hi." REALLY dont want that to happen.
4. catback exhaust...i heard turbo is better. but my budget did kinda get a little tight so i dulled it down " this a big mistake or is it just me?"
so thats about it for now...i didnt want to overdoo it/ kinda ran out of money...heh. any sudgestions or even rants about how im heading in the total wrong direction would be most appreciated. the last thing i want is to get off to a bad start with what has been my dream car ever since i could fathem having a car.
p.s this thing is awsome>>>>>
