For one, posting in the right forum.

What are you looking to do? Drag racing, just a bit of added power? Track?

Most people just get the basic 3: intake, exhaust and header. That should suffice for a bit.

Yup, intake, filter, exhaust are good ways to go. Header is a bit more expensive, and I don't know if Borla has taken care of the CE light that they had a tendency to throw. A short-shifter is also nice, if you have a manual. And you could also do with a proECM chip from www.imprezars.com , or a set of lightened/underdrive pullies. Oo, also a lighter flywheel, and upgraded clutch (once again, if you have a manual.) Also, if you are looking for something with more umph, you could get a set of cams from www.cobbtuning.com . So much left to do on my car!

to be totally honest, TIRES... RE-92 are total utter useless crap...

all the other stuff is gravy, but TIRES are the way to go, they'll improve every aspect of the car.

yep i would say tires
then intake...or at least get rid of the silencers...they = restriction
then exhaust..at least a cat back...
then high flow cat (stock = restictive)
then maybe a pulley
