The OE STI scoop does not fit. There are replicas on eBay, but they look like crap. Look for the JDM scoop, if you want anything.

slow down!! Your jumping into this with zero research. Don't just buy stuff and throw it on for the hell of it. Do research on every part you buy, before you buy.

That includes reading all the stickies which would have answered your question in this thread. Do not put a BOV on your car. Also, you don't need an intake until much higher power levels. What are your goals for the car?

what intake? Thats hugely important. Also, they are wheels, not rims. And use quality struts/springs to drop it and do the little things to go with that (alignment)

it is an injen intake and i was thinking of using tein lowering springs or tein flex coilovers to drop the car ...and the wheels i have right now are 18" which i think it's too big i'm actually looking for the stock 02 wheels .

I could be wrong but I'm pretty positive the Injen intake requires a tune. You would be better off buying a stock intake or trading for one. Tein sucks, their springs aren't great and their low-end coilovers are complete crap. You don't need coils unless you plan on tracking the car and even then anything under 2k is a waste of your time. Look into higher quality struts and springs, Tokico, KYB, swift, RCE, Mach V, Podrive etc.

As for looking at stock wheels, thats probably a good idea. Don't pay more than $200 for a set of 02-03s without tires, usually they can be found for around $100. If you like the thought of a different style or 17" look into some stock WRX wheels from other years. STI wheels will only work if they are from an 04, any other year has the wrong bolt pattern. Newer WRX wheels will bring a little more money so plan on spending slightly more. 04 STI wheels (BBS's) bring big $$ and are hard to find.

Injen intakes are complete garbage, especially on 02-03 WRXs. They are known to skew MAF readings and cause idle problems as well as acceleration problems.

Better off ditching it for a stock airbox or an SPT/Cobb/K&N Typhoon intake.
