what are you looking for in lines of performance? intakes? exhaust? suspension? check out what our parts department at Continental Subaru has available for your car through Cobb. We're an offical dealer of Cobb performance parts. #562-2722 and ask for Mike in parts. Tell him Phil in service told you to call him.

Depends on what/how much you want.It would be cost prohibitive to turn your car into an STI but you probably know that already. As for what I've done to my 06 2.5i sedan-rear swaybar from an 04 wrx,axleback section from an 04 STI and I'm looking into making my own cold air intake.

I suggest searching Nasioc in the NA section, as well as RS25.com. Good info being discussed now in both places for intakes and exhaust. Your car already has headers that help produce more power than the 05s and older. And a wrx/STi axleback is supposed to bolt right up to your midpipe. Intakes are DIY at this point.

It should be fairly easy to find stock wrx swaybars and sti exhausts (as previously recommended) here on this board.

Good luck, and welcome aboard! You chose a nice car.

if you're looking for more power, it's pretty difficult on a non-turbo 4-cylinder, Subaru or not. But even with all the extra horsepower parts on my car, I always enjoyed the suspension upgrades more...they seem to make it a lot more fun to drive, especially with all the body roll my wagon had. And, all the suspension and brake parts that fit on a WRX will fit on a 2.5i, or you could just upgrade to stock WRX parts for cheap.

Looks like the Arctic Valley stop and take pictures spot, like halfway up.

I agree on the suspension comments. NA power is adequate, depending on what you do with your can. Making best use of the available power makes the car much more fun.
