Can i put anything into my car that can give me a little more power? lol

Only thing that seems to be worth putting is sway bars, suspension and tires -_-

Modding the 2.5i's engine is simply not worth it. The car as it is, is already a depreciating asset. But pouring money into an engine that simply does not respond to expensive mods is just a waste. Really, listen to what people tell you and upgrade the sways and suspension. It's a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast

Yes, at last we have someone who listens to sound advice.

And don't come back and ask about turbo kits on the 2.5i either

If thats the case then save the money you'll spend on your 2.5i for the WRX.

I agree with the suspension bits. If you were concerned about going fast in the first place, I'm sure you would have bought an earlier model WRX. Speed doesn't get you around corners unless you've got the proper suspension. .HaVoK. and nairbmik and all those other people are right. Work on the suspension so you can focus on the difficult part of driving rather than concerning yourself about how fast you can get to those corners. It'll make you a better driver in the end.

Or just wait until you buy a WRX and save the money. You'll be happy you did.

No, it won't. All it'll do is dirty up your MAF sensor. Waste of money IMO
