Yep, you need 10 posts. Sorry about that, but it does a LOT towards stopping spammers. Be sure to say hi in your local forum too. This may help as well:

Hell of a driving experience though. Its all good.... need some goodies for the rex though. Cant decide wether to get the access port and the cobb tbe first, or get some sways, and 8" wides rotas with some 235-40 rubber, and maybe some springs.... opinions?

Congrats on the new rex and welcome to the boards!

Honestly, I would work on the suspension first. That's what I did. Springs, strut bars, steering rack bushings, sway bars, cusco 4 point lower arm brace, sti group n engine/tranny/pitch rod mounts, sti bbs's with re070's. That's what I did in that order. Doing power mods first is tempting, but the wrx is pretty quick in stock form. You just got the car, so I wouldn't be trying to make more power right away. Upgrading the suspension alone makes it so much more fun to drive. Plus, what good is all that extra power if you can't utilize it in turns?

I'm leaning that way. Maybe I'll split the difference, and just get the accessport stage one and no other power mods, and do the suspension. But I've been hearing ppl talk about having to do the up pipe with the ecu upgrade, something about the cat coming apart and killing the turbo? Cobb's site didnt really say anything about needing an uppipe with stage 1 flash?? Also is cucsco good stuff? I'm just not used to all the options for parts, things were much more limited in the mazda community. I mean I was looking at sway bars. you got, cobb, perrin, hotchkis, progress, spt, sti.... Geez how do ya pick lol

Sorry for all the questions.....yep I'm a noodb and I'm excited =) lol
