First off, I'm not telling you to go back to stock. I said take off and sell all the parts that aren't adding anything at all significant from a performance standpoint, and sell them.
I said reflash your ECU with the cobb map, and sell the AP. Again, no loss in performance, just $$$ in your pocket.
Your 2002 WRX was built in 2001, making it at least 11 years old.
I understand the enjoyment that comes from wrenching on your car. But I see a lot of $$$ wasted in parts that give you next to nothing, while you ignored suspension, brakes, etc. I can tell you're young. From experience, you'll appreciate the $$$ in the bank for your next project.
Sorry, can't recommend spending another $1,000 in mods on a car that's worth $5 or 6k.
But if you were going to, how about some sway bars, an H6 upgrade, and some better tires?
How about a couple track days?
