Hi everyone, I' m a new scoobie:) Just received my 2002 WRX wagon. Looking to gain some more ponies(min 50hp) but I'm confused over which mods to go.

I've read that a mbc and bov and k & n filters are the way to go but I've also read going with a unichip and exhaust.
Questions
Which exhaust sounds the closest to stock i.e the least noisy?
If I go unichip then is a mbc still necessary?

TurboXS' stage 1 kit will add about 40HP ($1k). Add an uppipe from somebody like Godspeed, and you're at your 50HP target.

The nice thing about the Unichip is you can have it reprogrammed once you have a few more mods.

BOV will sound cool, but gain you nothing.

Uppipe and boost controller are what I recommend as the very first mods. Unichip is also a great mod. A turbo upgrade should be on your list also although is 50 HP is all you want you can probably get there without changing the turbo if you really tried.

Thanks to all those who replied. I have one more question. I've read that by going with a unichip a mbc will not be necessary and vice versa. Which is true?
