Default Please help with Advice - new WRX owner

SORRY IF THIS IS IN THE WRONG SECTION.

Well to start off, im a new guy on this site from Atlanta,GA. I will be buying a 02 WRX by the end of the week. For past few years ive been all out N/A guy, so i am not really familiar with TC cars. Once i buy the WRX, i will have about 4 grand to spend on parts(quality parts that is). Im not sure where to start, buy a bigger turbo? But a FMIC? buy a BOV? Buy a DP UP? Exhaust?

So my question for all you WRX guys is, what is the best and the correct way to start the build? I dont care about rims, i dont care about lips etc. engine wise only.

So if some of you guys would post what i should do first, second, third, fourth.....and so on. TY.

Info on the car:

Stock
100k miles

4k, I would get the mfactory gearset and get that out of the way. And then save up for a 30 or 35r. But no matter which way you go MAKE EM YOUR FIRST PURCHASE
