Default New to Subaru

Hi All,

I'm new to Subaru and turbo cars, always been an N/A guy. I just bought a 2010 WRX Premium 5-door about a month ago and I LOVE IT!!

Here is the thing though, I'm looking for a a bit more from it. I'm NOT looking at anything crazy like 400whp or dumping $10k into it. I'm looking for an all around improvement over stock. This is what I'm looking for in general:

Some more hp/tq(nothing crazy)
Quicker spool up
Quicker/firmer shifts(sts?)
Stiffer/More responsive suspension

I pretty sure all these have been gone over more times than I can probably count, but any help from you guys would be much appreciated.

Congrats to you! Glad you like it. Here is what I would do personally.

Cobb Accessport Stage 1 Flash
Cobb SF Intake
Kartboy Short Shifter
Toss some RallyArmours, a front lip and tint the windows and your golden.
Done.

^spot on. Slowly work your way up in power, stage 1 will feel like an improvement, you will love it, then get bored and want more, then you got stage 2 if you wanna go for more, then love that, then so on and so on

Thanks guys, I appreciate all the feedback. I've been reading up on the Cobb AP and stage 1 is something I'll definitely do. I am also thinking of a cbe, looking for a deep tone, but not too loud. What do you guys suggest? Thanks!

SPT makes a real nice catback exhaust system. Clean and classy looking. The Invidia Q300 is a step up sound wise but is a badass system. I love the look of the Q300 especially with the burnt tips. Nameless exhaust however is a little cheaper option, but still looks/sounds good in my opinion. I, personally, would go with the Q300, thats what I plan to do at least.

Send me a private message with a picture of a hot babe and I will set you up with two sources that will satisfy your power and suspension needs. You will be happy and save money and be put in touch with titanically awesome people who care about your happiness and not your wallet. Not. Kidding.

I have the Cobb Catback mated to by catless invidia dp and I love it. Looks stock and is only really loud when you want it to be. However I also cut the stupid 2.5 taper donut flange off the Cobb mid pipe an had a 3in flat flange welded on to mate my invidia perfect.
