ive had my 2000 impreza now for 2 years i have put several thousand dollars into it and am looking to do some more stuff. Nothing to drastic though, i want to stay away from forced induction and swapping out internals, they are way to expensive. I was thinking about doing a lightweight pulley or something else with the engine.

Heres what ive got:
Competition clutch stage 2 clutch
Competition clutch lightweight 11 Lb flywheel
GP Moto Air Intake
AGX adjustable struts
Eibach Pro Spring Kit
Kartboy Short shifter
Rota SDR 17" rims
BFGoodrich G-force tires
Sound System, dvd player, tv screen, woofer and surround sound
custom gauges and someother appearance stuff.

Let me know what you would go with for next modifier!
Thanks Everyone!

lightweight pulley should be next, imo.

after that, equal length headers... you'll get way more of an increase with them than even a catback. and then once you get a catback, the headers will really be noticable

Have a reputable tuner remap the ECU. This is probably the most effective mod without going to the extreams such as port n polish heads. Goodluck

I would go for these, + some front and rear sway bars. I just got my Subie friday, but my previous 2 cars had suspensions and the difference from stock is Awesome!
Short shifters are just plain Fun.
I've heard good things about the lightweight pulleys, but personally I would stay away from underdrives.

and just my opinion....leave the tvs in the living room. Cars are for driving.

Swaybars next, you have springs and struts so might as well finish the suspension basics.

Then may I recommend this for some casual reading.

headers all the way. 2.5's LOVE em

I'd stick with Cobb, pricey, but they're proven power.

I happened to have a set of Cobb headers and Rallitek headers in my "garage" now. The welds and quality of the Cobb's is evident. That being said the Ralliteks are nice, the welds are bigger and not nearly as neat as the Cobb's but nothing that would appear to hurt power.

Once there installed on the cars we are gonna try to get dynos run for comparison.

^^^ Tru 'dat! The Rallitek's are purrty but that will only matter to the poor schmuck you just ran over. Stainless is nice for longevity.

cobbs also have the ceramic coating option, which should help for longevity- but again you pay dearly for it.

if i were to spend big bucks on EL headers, i'd get TWE headers... and if i was going for good headers that don't cost an arm and a leg, i'd get the OBX. rallitek is a great company but they're charging a hell of a lot more just for their name... the OBX is made at the same factory, and it would be expremely surprising if the specs that rallitek gives up aren't just applied to the obx runs anyway.

Yeah the Cobb's we have are coated but used so we paid $400 with the hi flow cat section. The Rallitek's we bought "used" as well about the same price as the OBX setup. I don't buy new unless I have to.

alright i went to the track one more time before getting my unorthodox pulley installed, ran a 15.667, That was a perfect run i must say, week after i installed the pulley, ran once more, 15.853 and a 15.912. So the pulley slowed me down but the 60 ft time is much better!!! Now im going to go for the header back exhaust, im thinking Borla headers into a Stromung cat back setup... any thoughts about this???
