Sounds good but I'd go with a 20G since the OP has a 2.5L

BOV and Intake FTW


What do with the car, any racing?

I would take a good portion of the money and upgrade brakes and tires.

Big 16g or 18g
Tial 38mm EWG
cobb ap or a utec
water/meth inj
HKS Dp
Tmic or Fmic(i prefer Fmic)
Boost + Egt Gauge

That is a really fun street set-up, that you will be able to still enjoy in the heat of summer.

Finish your exhaust + intake + walbro fuel pump + protune

Boost gauge is a must too

and a good suspension set up = Ohlin structs + RCE springs + front/back sway bars

most important of all, invest $$ in your driving skills


Come touge with me!! haha

Cobb dp, Cobb Accessport, streetuner or protune, wider wheels/tires, Cobb short shift/shift bushings, Cobb rear sway bar/endlinks. Don't blow it all at once, because you'll be bored with it too soon. Start by making the car better, overall.

I'd sell and get an '04 STi...seriously. PM me about it if you want.

Edit...but to actually answer your question, I'd go with a full stage 2, sway bars, coilovers, and some good brake pads.

true that he has a 2.5, but he doesnt have an sti 6-speed to support the power a 20g will put down.

Good to hear! We'll take good care of you, and certainly not sell you what you don't need. (I'm one of the owners now)
