Default Newbie to the site from Maryland

Whats up guys just wanted to introduce my self. I am 17 years old graduating high school this yea 3.5 gpa and parents bought me an 08 STI. I want to make 400+ horsepower to the wheels. Im fairly new to turbo cars, my first car was a 96 camaro rs with basics like exhaust and intake. Any help to what i can do to get the power i want would be helpful.

Im just kidding guys. Really Name is Shawn im 23 and im from southern maryland and Own a 2008 STI. Story behind it, Coming from a 2003 Imola yellow 20th A.E GTI making 230 whp. Bigger turbo front mount, tune, intake, coilovers, front and rear sway bars, strut braces in the front. I have wanted an STI since i was about 15 years old and first layed eyes on one and after hearing one back then I was sold. 8 years later with a good job I was finally able to afford one on my own. After having so many issues with my GTI (125,000 miles on the clock) it started giving me a huge headache with all kinds of motor issues IE not boosting properly, bogging down after getting into boost etc etc. I finally gave up on my pride and joy and traded her in. Prior to trading her in I was looking at dealers all around for the perfect STI. Found one up near Baltimore 2006 with 44,200 miles on it but my issue was the price. they wanted $31,000 OTD for it. Tried to talk him down and only went to $29,000. Walked away from that one not to mention after test driving it it didnt seem right ride wise. Found another 2008 with 38,350 on the clock. Went up and took a look at it and test drove it. After about 5-10 mins driving it I fell in love with it and was driving in each of the modes and was satisfied with it. Sat down with the dealership and got the car fax on the car and go to find out the guy selling me car was the Previous owner and reason for selling was a growing family. guy was in his late 30s and showed me all of the paperwork from oil changes and maintainence. After about and hour of talking to him i was already decided on this car and had set on the price of $23,450 OTD for the car. So that is what brings me here today. Car was purchased in October 2012, since then i have put on an Invidia N1 Race catback and have and AP to go along with it. Phwew that was alot. Sorry for the Long intro.

Welcome. Look into TSBs. I know there were a couple on the 08s. Other than that enjoy the car. You are in an awesome location. There a some really good Subaru shops in your part of the world.

What part specifically? I live in LaPlata so it's probably fairly close.

I read the first paragraph and shook my head and thought this will end well. Then I saw the second paragraph and stopped reading.
