Hey guys,

I drive an silver '02 WRX wagon. If you guys had around $1000 to spend on it, be it engine mods or suspension or a body kit or anything, what would you guys spend it on?

^^^+1....however, if you are riding around on crappy rubber, a good set of sticky tires is a great upgrade. I did the tuned catless TBE w/uppipe first, but after doing various suspension and driveline mods, they have given me more enjoyment than the extra power.

It's your money...

Mileage?

As much as I'd love the boosted power from a new exhuast, I drive a lot, normally 400+ miles every week or two. Would said uppipe or whatever kill my mileage?

You'll notice a decrease in mileage the first few weeks simply because your foot will be heavier.:) But if you can resist the urge, or once you get used to the extra power, you will see an increase in mileage, which is the result of a good tune. I'm Stage 2(which is what this route is called for short), and I usually see anywhere from 27-30mpg on trips.
