Default 00 Legacy L need parts

I have searched through a buncha stuff and its hard as hell to find preformance parts for this ride of mine, almoust makes me wonder why I bought it. Well I found a few cold air intakes for it and my decision came down to Injen or COBB, I am prolly thinking COBB heard good things about them, what do you guys think? Please if anyone knows any where I can find parts for this car POST POST POST!!!, next ill prolly put an exhaust on her so thats what ill be looking for, but anything is good. I am not familiar with jap sites, so there might be something on there cuz think legacys are more popular in japan than here.

well, just remember you're running the same engine as all the phase II RS's.
you can get the same headers/HF cats/ heads that the RS's can.
IMHO, for our cars the hardest thing to find is suspension bits.
its really feast or famine. 1500 coilovers or 500 kyb's

This thread was asking almost the exact same question. There are a lot of parts available but it does take some searching. As said right above me here you have the same engine as the RS so any engine parts from that will fit. If you want power I strongly recommend CAMS, a Ganzflow style intake (cheap), Equal length headers and a cat back exhaust.

I think there are heaps of sspension upgrades available, but I'm in the business so know where to get them. There is some JDM stuff available and some US made/carried stuff as well. It really depends what you want. I've done a lot in terms of brakes and suspension for my car and it was not too difficult.

Sry guys I am new to the scene and kinda lost. Plus I am retarded so if you can, spell it out for me... all those obriviations and numbers make my head hurt . Plus that post is all about wagon, I have sedan and its 00. Scimed through that and didn't reallyy find anything usefull.

tora - I dont like the Ganzflow simply because it doesnt replace the airbox if I am correct. I heard good things about COBB one, plus I am not worried about the price of the intake because as soon as I make up my mind I am getting it as a bday gift.

Exhaust is the trouble right now, I cant find any catbacks for 00 Legacy. Would it be better making a custom one? What piping would I need to replace the whole exhaust system, starting from headers to the axleback.

I also peeked under the car few days ago and noticed that I have like 4 boxes on the exhast piping, 3 cats? 1 resonator? ***?

tora: care to share some suspension info....

Khan: I went with a custom exhaust. 2.25" diameter.
go find a reputable shop and i bet they can get it done for half the price. I paid $300 for my cat back. any brandname one you find will be >$500.

Khan - We offer lots of items for the BE/BH chassis Legacys Drop us a PM or Email.

In regards to cat-backs, we've got that too

As for the Ganzflow; for torque purposes that would be a better choice with a K&N or other replacement panel filter; then the COBB unit that replaces everything. If you replace the airbox, you will tend to loose some low-end torque.

Ditto that. COBB is a nice unit and I like it. I wouldn't buy it for my car as it is very costly. If you can get it as a B-day gift then go for it.

As for suspension bits, iamrazor, what are you interested in? Coil-overs? Springs? Sway bars? ALK? Strut bars? Let me know and I'll tell you what is available and IMO good.

KAHN, there are a number of cat backs available but because our rear bumper has no cut-out on it I don't think they look very good (just my opinion). I think a custom 2.25 inch piping is the way to go and just pick a universal muffler that fits nicely in the car...as said, any good shop can do it.
Also equal length headers from www.techworkseng.com are a great buy and their CAMS. Also anything that fits the wagon will fit the sedan, the only difference would be if buying springs you would want a slightly heavier spring for the rear since the wagon weighs more.

tora: I'm planning on doing struts / springs sometime in the near future. I could get the kyb's but was hoping there was something else out there..

thoughts?

I dono tech works eng headers are 948$, seem expensive... What about borla? or maybe a better price somewhere? Also I am thinking getting rid of cat, just put a testpipe on there... anything else I am missing?

Muffer universal, custom centerpipe, testpipe or high flow cat, headers(undecided)

CAMS from TWE, can i get a hand on which ones are better?

COBB intake

then after comes suspension...

Don't bother with borla headers. They are cheap but offer VERY minimal gains and build quality is poor. They seem to be prone to cracking at the seams more than Brullen, TWE or COBB.

iamrazor, you want a spring strut combo, there are heaps of JDM stuff or take-off JDM stuff available....depends what you want to spend, what you are tihnking to match them with as far as Springs, whether you want adjustability. for myself I've had it with mis-matched spring/strut combos, I'm getting some DMS 40mm's by the end of the summer.

Some are my suppliers so of course I am not going to give away the source cause then no-one would go through me to get stuff. If you know what you want, or what you have in mind let me know and if I can't get it I will direct you to who can. Price, lowering amount, intended use, desire for adjustability.

I'm waiting for iON to ship my cat-back. As long as I waited for COBB, I never got any exhaust components from them.

They used to offer. Never kept to their promise to ship, though, unfortunately.

Just got my CAI from COBB. Quite happy so far, few days of driving. Its not too loud at all, unless you want it to be. Quite overpriced tho, but I got it as a present so doesnt really matter.



At first when I got the box, I though something was missing because it was so light I could lift it with one finger, literally.

Hose where a bitch to install tho. The three valve cover vent line palaces are hard to get to and the tubes are are some nice silicone. Getting the ends on took some effort, but I know for sure that they arent comming off.



Thanks to everyone who gave me some info on diffrent products.

I have a prodrive muffler. It's not to loud but effective. I think the price on that is $480. Even with the bumper not being cut out it still looks sweet.

Nice looking intake Khan.

Whiteline do an extensive selection of suspension bits for the Legacies.
And SPT are having a special on their axle-backs for $216 I believe - which are bolt on.

I've heard nothing but bad things about Borla headers - but the TWE items are high priced, for a reason. Friends of mine have a prototype long-runner header - it's very good, but it always throws CELs. Their stock header items look to be very well made, and should outlast the car.
