Default Local Setups? What do you have?

Hey Guys, im fairly new to NASIOC, I have a black 06 WRX I bought a month ago. Im still looking into this car and learning more each time I log on here... and Im looking to do some upgrades in the future... but... would like to see what locals have for thier setups?

Maybe one day to meet up and I can see the power gains you guys have to relate to what i ACTUALLY want and will be happy with...

So, anyone? What do you have for your current setup?

Now start to do some autox while your car is still stock.

If I had to start all over again, I would start my mod list by upgrading the suspension.

For some cheap power though, Cobb AP is a good and easy way to go.

There are some great tuners in the valley that will do a fantastic custom tune using open source software for much less than a Cobb AP. I personally used blkscooby and am very happy.

My mods are:
SRS UP and TBE.
Modded airbox with green filter.
Gimmick Motorsports after MAF hose and turbo inlet hose.
TD04 with lightly ported hot side.
GM 3 port boost solenoid.
Tune by blkscooby
TB coolant bypass.
Modded OEM bypass valve.
USDM STi springs.
20mm RSB.
Brembo Sport rotors.
Goodridge SS lines.
Hawk HPS pads.
17X7.5 Rota Torques

Soon to come:
SSAC TMIC.
Perrin Silicon Y hose.

I'm pretty cheap when it comes to modding my car. Even with the future mods I'll still only have about $1200 invested in mods.

No, skip the Cobb AP. Save yourself about 500 bucks and spend 200 on a good open source protune. MarkJonesTuning...

Welcome. There are regular meets throughout the valley so you can actually meet some of us. The best thing you can do without going crazy is just a full exhaust and a tune. After that (or even before that), I'd suggest some good basic mods to improve handling and braking. Sway bars, springs/struts, stainless steel brake lines, brake pads, and brake fluid are some good starting points.

Don't spend thousands on a turbo kit and be on the stock suspension and tires.

My setup:

Go

Cobb AP/ST (maps from DC and Trav)
Worx Tuning Catted/Coated Divorced Wastegate DP
JIC Titanium CBE
1-Step Colder Spark Plugs (ordered)
FAT TGV Deletes
APS 65mm CAI
Ported/Polished Throttle Body

~probably around 250 to 300 whp depending on fuel/map

Stop

Goodridge SS lines
Hawk HPS/Ferodo DS2500 pads
Motul RBF600 fluid
Cusco Master Cylinder Brace

Turn

Prodrive Springs
RPM Subframe Rreplacement
Cusco F/R Strut Tower Braces
Progress F/R Sway Bars
Poltec Front Endlinks
Perrin Rear Endlinks

Misc

Defi BF Gauges (boost, oil temp, oil press, water temp)
Zeitronix WBO2
TurboXS Knocklite
Scroth Quick Fit Harnesses
Grounding Kit
Wal-Mart Lawn and Garden Battery (mad weight reduction...yo)
Seibon CF Trunk (wingless)
Ravspec CF V-Limited Replica Front Lip (Cracked )

Or you can use someone who supports the forum (or is supported by a vendor), because without vendors, there wouldn't be a fourm to post on

Do you know how much revenue a forum like this generates with no added vendors?

Also to clarify, are you just using your vendor status to "subcontract" a tune, to a non vendor?

Just wondering.

Can you please tell me how much with no vendors?? i am sure you can't because every forum has supporting vendors

Also, Markjonestuning is part of EviL Performance, so there is no "subcontract" to a non vendor,

I am sure there is a reason you ask that, so please let me know why you are "just wondering"

How do you like your Hotchkis FSB and front end links? Fitting good to your wagon? I am thinking to up size my FSB.

There are other ways to make money, then with direct vendors, especially on a forum with this sort of page rank, and traffic.. I obviously can't give you an exact figure, but i can tell you it can make revenue.. Vendors are a nice bonus, indeed.

Ya, my reason was i was just wondering..lol If i knew your situation, i wouldn't have asked for clarification.

Does there have to be some sort of conspiracy theory?

The hotchkis FSB is a quality piece and I was suprised by how light the hollow bar actually is. The end links are also nice and have fittings so they cam be easily greased. So far (it's been a few hundred miles) the setup is tight and noise free. From the Hotchkis website, they seem to be very expensive, but I got them NIB, but second-hand. Like I said, they seem to be a very quality setup. I would recommend them for sure. And they did a good job brinking the neutrality back to my wagon's handling.
