    My 05' came with painted sideskirts from the factory which is good. I already added 17" wheels and tires. They swaybar would be good to do so I don't have so much understeer. All though I think it needs tint and a good set of springs for now. just to give it the aggressive look.

    the springs will help highway driving stability too, and help with turn in and bodyroll. . don't go too low. the stock struts will go very quickly. i'd suggest prodrive or eibach, or some STi takeoffs if you can get them young.

    the uppipe and downpipe will eliminate some lag, lower egts, and add a good 25+ awhp peak (conservatively). great starting mods, and they pave the way for anything else you're going to do.

    you're in good shape though! got any pics of the wheels?

    Wish my up/dp had added 25awhp...

    edit:not that I have any proof or anything, but the butt dyno didn't feel like 25hp

    there are dyno charts on nasioc of the JDM uppipe, bosal DP, and stock third cat with prodrive cat back at 200awhp on either a dynapack or a dyno dynamics. although i think he had samco's too, i doubt they added anything substantial.

    there are also dyno charts here from KTR (dyno dynamics) with wagons over 200 w/ the stock third cat, stock catback and an A/P (which is conservative tuned anyways) that's 40whp stock DD is 160 at the wheels).

    so to you.

    i'm not making anything up.

    Just did a search on the subject, I retract statement. There's a lot of people saying the same thing. Maybe the butt dyno lied? (It's been known to happen) Anyways, my bad...

    two things, one, it's a much smoother power curve (i thought) so it's deceiving. two, it takes a couple weeks for the ECU to really pick up the new flow, so it's harder to realize b/c it's not an instant change.

    plus, you get used to ever mod after a few weeks, and the car feels slow again. that's why modding should be illegal.

    Yeah, I don't want to slam it but I do want to eliminate the wheel gap to maybe 1/2in. to 1in. rather than 4in or so.. You know big ol' gap. I will look into those springs soon. I think I may go ECUTEK first then the other things after.

    I will try to get my wheels on here soon. My comp. wasn't happy with that pic so I'll try later.

    Thanks
