Default money to burn...

I now have saved up $400 in subaru bucks from the chase subaru mastercard. What should I ask for from my local dealer? I've been tempted to finally get the scooped hood, but maybe I should do a mod like sti engine/tranny mounts?!? PS - it can only be spent at a subaru dealership, so don't say carbon fiber hood, cause even though I desperately want one, subaru doesn't have one...

Not only good at Subaru dealerships, there are vendors on the board that take the subybucks. I believe that means that it doesn't have to be actual Subaru parts. Take a look and search in vendor's section and I'm sure you will find those that take them. I'm pretty sure allsubaru.com and renick motorsports take them, and they sell lots of other goods.

As far as what to buy, I would tend to do intake, exhaust or suspension goodies before a hood...

I've been thinking about headers too. But it needs to be something I can do myself in a few hours. I still have a factory alarm to install that's been sitting for about a year...

headers are yummy. If you are like me and you JUST work to spend on the car than you do it all. Otherwise I either say suspension or headers. I just got my car back (engine was rebuilt and covered by warrenty yay). So now I'm dropping in KYB suspension and B&G springs and BORLA headers to go with my BORLA catback. Wake up the whole town :+)

What's done to your car already?

What are your options? SOA parts only or have you found a vendor that will take them for non-SOA goodies?

The hood is an option, but there may be areas your money could be better spent.
What are your goals for your car I.E. what do you want out of it in the long haul?

I'm 19 and I got denied too. I just got a Capital One card. Got the max limit with absolutely no credit and I just pay everything off before the grace period...not sure if I'm building much credit, but hey...it makes online purchases a lot easier

You ARE building credit. Actually the best way to do it is to pay it off, for many reasons. But that is actually part of the equation for credit rating.

Back on topic:

The legacy SPT exhausts are REALLY discounted right now at places like www.allsubaru.com

Yeah, but I heard the subaru spt exhausts were all show and no go. Does it offer a performance gain? My goals for the car are to make it faster, but I'm not going to make it crazy loud or inconvenient to drive. Eventually, when I have to replace the clutch, I will put in a lightened flywheel and a better clutch. I want the headers cause everyone says you can feel a difference. I want to do the better mounts for eng & trans cause I hear it makes a more responsive ride, but I'm worried about them making the car too loud.

The only things I've done so far are a rear diff protector, synth rear diff fluid, taken out the air intake stuff back to the filter box (now the car sounds louder at full throttle but not at regular driving). That's pretty much it, except for a sportier looking grille cause I hated the stock outback one. I might just do the headers, but equal length are pricey so it'll probably be the borlas...

maybe I can use the subaru bucks at subaru of dallas and get a cobb header system. It is $600 something, but I'll get another hundred from chase soon and I can pay for the last bit myself... Anyone think the cobb headers are worth the $$$?!?

so anyone wanna compare the cobb headers with the borla, or is it like comparing apples to oranges since one is equal lenght and other isn't?!? I know there's a big price dif...

search the N/A forums. The Cobbs have been shown (by COBB) to add around 13hp, whereas Borlas are only 4hp or so. They are much better, but you are paying for it, and the boxer rumble is eliminated with the Cobbs.

You aren't going to see many gains from an axleback or even catback by themselves. But paired with headers and hi-flow cats you will. I doubt that the SPT is much behind a Stromung when paired with a full system.

If you have the cash and enough desire to drop over $1000 dollars on a full exhaust, then COBB is probably your choice. However, I was able to get an SPT axleback and borla headers from a total of $250, by being patient and watching the boards for used stuff. Not as much power, but good enough, especially for the cash.

well, I have the cash to do something... I should be getting another $100 certificate anytime now. That'll give me $500 to spend at subaru of dallas and they carry cobb stuff... I know the borlas are easy to install, but are the cobb equal length difficult? It seems like a lot more pipe to try and fit under there...

You won't be able to redeem the Subybucks for non-Subaru brand merchandise. However, you can use them for labor at a dealership for install of non-Subaru stuff. So, they won't pay for the headers, but they will pay for the install.

Also, they don't give change, so if you only use $80 of a coupon, find $20 worth of trinkets to fill out the $100. I highly recommend the black ceramic STi mug.
