Default New owner of used 2002 in KY

I just bought my first Subaru in Louisville, KY. It's a used Impreza Outback Wagon with 177,000 miles on it. What kind general maintenance should I be doing just to get the ole gal up to daily driver status? After that is complete I plan on minor upgrades and mods for added driving enjoyment: suggestions welcome... Thanks

If you have owners manual check in back for intervals, but right off the bat, timing belt tensioner water pump ect.... that's most critical then after that our regular items coolant, brake fluid, clutch fluid, tune up if needed, fuel filter,belts, pulleys, brakes,rotors,leaks,ect....

I see its a bugeye Wagon so you can do suspension, roof rail deletes,.exhaust, intake, majority of the items a wrx wagon could do, you can also

There is no manual with the car...so first question is where do I find one, two: is it worth my time grabbing a Chilton's manual to do the work on my own or should I stay with a mechanic?

So that is not good news, do any of you turn wrenches on your own rigs? If yes what are you using as a guide?
