Sell the car and buy a Honda.

Or

Research, read, search, read, and read.
This question is asked on a daily basis, intake will risk your engine if you don't get the car tuned. Exhaust I assume you mean catback which will net you an increase in sound, don't get a fartcan though. Most upgrades will be either suspension or for look.

Your best bet would be to hold off on modding and do some maintenance.

If the timing belt hasn't been done start counting your pennies. I like to do an oil change at least when buying a preowned car. You could do the 30k: oil, tranny, diff, coolant, plugs, brake fluid, air filter, toss in a cabin air filter, pcv valve, check brakes and suspension, wash your car. Do all these yourself with help of a friend and you'll save hundreds, but make sure they're done properly. The timing belt unless you're much more inclined leave to a shop preferably that specializes in Subaru. Search your local thread for those.

^ All that he said, AND save $$ for a potential headgasket blow. 100 000 miles is an expensive maintenance milestone.

Yes they are. Not trying to be a d*ck, but all your questions can be answered somewhere on this forum. looks like you have a lot of reading to do. You will get flamed if you continue down this path of asking the most basic of Subaru questions.
