any springs for an 04 wrx will fit ( go for teins), cai - injen and search on here for lightspeed, they do a good job. as for headers i think the borla's fit. I've been wondering bout this topic, im looking for some equal length ones if anyone knows what will fit?

These topics have all been covered extensively, but for quick recommendations:
- Headers
The consensus comes down to Borla (low cost, good sound & torque) and TWE (higher cost, more power response in mid to high end)

- CAI
Cheaper the better. I have a homemade pipe into the fender (free from another NASIOCer) and an Amsoil panel filter I bought used. Something like a PDM racing pipe and a K&N will be just fine, though I don't know if the PDM pipes fit an '05.

- Springs
Many options, everyone has a different opinion. I'd go for Prodrive or the new SPT/STi "pink" springs on stock struts to start with.

www.rallitek.com and www.cobbtuning.com have a fair amount of n/a parts... Rallitek's better overall customer service wise and they have a bigger spring selection.

As far as I know the Header is the metal tubing coming off of each cylinder that takes the exepended air from the engine to the exhaust system...kinda looks like a hand with no thumb

Yup... it's the beginning of the exhaust piping system. Header, cat section, midpipe, axel back/muffler.

I just got my new springs on my 04 RS and the Eibach pro-kit for the WRX did not fit in the rear, I actually had to go with the STI springs, they lower the same, but the rear springs seem to be different than the WRX. I don't know if this will apply for the 05, but I recomed you do some research before buing any suspension components.
