I'm not 100% positive (more like 60%) but I don't think there are [m]any mods yet.

Swap in a manual tranny

If you want it to sound burlier, look to the exhaust first. Also I'd say that an ecu flash will add a lot of fun to the car too for relatively cheap. Borla makes a wonderful souding exhaust that's not too loud, but not sure if it'll bolt right up to the new models...? Friend with a WRX -> Borla Hush catback and ebay up/down pipes sounds SO good. He's also got a bigger turbo, etc. but yours will sound very nice with a good catback.

You're not going to get that "STi" sound with the newer N/A Subarus because they changed the stock system to Equal Length headers. If you want, you can modify old Unequal length ones to work, but you'll be sacrificing a lot of power for noise. Not worth it IMO.

You can still get a nice headerback exhaust system and make it sound sporty (not necessarily honda-ish) but it won't be as deep.

poor mark, he must be getting old and cant read good and stuff.

it's okay mark, we'll start a fund to send you to derek zoolander's school...albeit tiny.

dunno if the cobb accessport supports the 08 legacy's, but might be worth looking into for a few horsies(cobbtuning.com).

I read it as N/A. I must be getting Jaded, I figured he'd have skipped by here and gone straight to lgt.com
