A tune, cams, pistons, turbo w/low boost. Without significant changes, you're probably not going to get much more out of the NA engine than what you already have gained with those mods. The engine just isn't a great candidate for big HP.

I'm suprised no one has posted "Trade it in for a WRX" (MASIOC must have taken the week off), but honestly, once you do a tune and some significant engine mods like cams, pistons, and a turbo, you'll have spent the same money as you would have for a WRX, and you still won't have as much HP or all of the other WRX goodies (better suspension, seats, brakes, spoiler, hoodscope, etc.)

Spend your money on suspension. Get some aftermarket sway bars and springs, and maybe some '09 WRX struts. It won't make your car faster in a stright line, but it will make your car faster overall because your handling will be MUCH better and youwill be able to maintain a better speed through corners.

Cams, good EL headers, and a tune will be you best bet for making power out of your car. This should probably be ignored however until you have dialed in the suspension.


EDIT: LMAO ... I'm retarded for failing to see that he has a WRX

Wait what?

To answer this question assuming you have an N/A scoob ... Cams, good EL headers, and a tune will be you best bet for making power out of your car. This should probably be ignored however until you have dialed in the suspension.

Seconding this. My 00RS is suicidally slow and the cost to make it reasonably quick was out of my budget so I turned to handling.

04' STI suspension, 04' STI Brembo brakes, White line rear stab bar and RE070 tires make it a whole lot more fun. Still slow though...
