Welcome to the forum. Step 1: don't type like a 12 year old girl texts. Use complete words and sentences with decent grammar and you will get much more help. Obviously there is a lot done to it aesthetically but we can't just assume whats under the hood. Post detailed pictures of the engine bay, interior, exhaust, suspension etc if you want detailed answers.

I already answered that question. Post pictures and we will tell you. Or take it to a local Subaru tuner and pay them to tell you

A BOV (the worst possible one), get a stock BPV with the recirc hose and replace it. Also an intake, can't tell which one from that picture. Strut bar. Then they decided to paint a bunch of stuff (painted alternator is a new one). Could possibly have an aftermarket exhaust or downpipe but can't tell from that picture. Plus a two tone paint job, STI spoiler, ugly wheels, chargespeed brake ducts (nice). Thats all that can be told from that picture.

edit: Probably some suspension work based on the lowered stance. Based on the other mods Im going to assume they bought some cheap Tein springs and threw them on the stock struts

nevermind, upon closer examination they are just black foglight housings, read the big BOV thread and you will understand. That particular BOV is notorious for leaks causing your engine to run like crap and possible damage. Never heard of those coilovers but my guess is they are cheap and not benefitting you in any way but the lowering and you could be causing additional stress to other parts of the suspension. And if you like the wheels (they aren't rims) then keep them but they are hideous and don't belong on a subaru

BOVs arent good unless your tuned for them, you will need one if you decide to run a higher boost pressure than stock with an aftermarket intercooler.. If your car is running the OEM Engine Management then yes the BOV will put added stress to other components of your motor.

Its an HKS SSQV, they are complete pieces of ****, do some research and you will see my point proven. And no, it is not better than a BPV at your level of modifications. Nothing beats the stock BPV up to large boost numbers. And yes, it is stressing the rest of your suspension. Its lowered, quite a bit, thus changing the geometry of your suspension causing additional stress. Do you really think $500 coilovers are worth a damn when a good set runs 2k+? The answer is no, they are crap. And no, they are wheels. Rims refers to only the outer ring of multi-part wheels. You have Wheels. And I don't need anyone to like my car. It has far more attention to detail and smart modifications than you will understand. And I can actually tell whats done to my car and know what each piece has affected.

Your wrong on every aspect. Period. If you would like constructive advice then stop acting like a child and I would be more than happy to help. I have put in thousands of hours of research on these cars and am happy to share that knowledge with others as long as they are respectful and act like adults

Garrett didn't post asking opinions of how his car looked, you did. When you ask for opinions, you may get some criticism.

Welcome to the site! :)
Sounds like you would benefit from visiting our Engine Modifications forum and looking through the stickies at the top, which are educational about what you are asking.

A word of benign advice:
You are, of course, entitled to communicate as you please, but you will get a friendlier reception if you make an attempt at grammar.

Im done arguing wheels vs rims. A stock BPV returns the already metered air to the intake. A BOV puts it out into the atmosphere causing you to run rich between shifts. Rich = not as good as perfect AFR. To do a bigger turbo a lot must be done at the same tune. Fuel pump, injectors, bigger intercooler, tune, and if you go too big or don't drive properly a new tranny and motor. Do your research and you will be fine. Do it the "Easy" way and you will be back here asking if its better to rebuild a motor/tranny or buy a new one.
