    Newb

    Hey everyone, I'm a newb here and have a few questions maybe some of you could answer. First off, I heard the seats stain easily....now i'm not a messy person, and keep my car clean, but just wondering if this is a common thing and if i should look into scotchgaurding my seats? Also, I'm looking to mod my car eventually, and after having a noisy civic ( ) i really don't want to get a cat-back first. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Welcome.... 1. They do stain, but are easily cleaned with some warm water and a sponge. 2. Don't get a cat back first. It does nothing but make noise. I would recommend the greddy evo I exhaust if you want some growl later down the road but something thats not too loud.
    3. Look at the sticky in the engine performance secition and in this forum for good first mod advice. Enjoy and be safe.

    if you're going to mod the car, you're going to most likely start out with exhaust anyways. A catback will add some hp but by itself it won't be noticeable. If you haven't heard a wrx with exhaust yet, you'll find the exhaust note quite pleasing to tell you the truth

    Thanks everyone for the welcomes, and after doing some research today, I think I might be looking at a Vishnu Reprogramed ECU, and am going to do some searches on it. Quick question though, does anyone know how to change the order of the posts? Right now they're showing the newest first, and the oldest last....can that be changed?

    Uppipe and downpipe would be great to start with. Depending on the brands you go for you can keep the stock muffler and be nice and quiet.

    You may also want to look in the for sale forums for one of the older TXS stealthbacks. This will mate up with the stock axelback.
