Default Wanna void the warranty on my new STI for $200.

Whaddup all. JUst got my 06 STI couple of weeks ago and I can't get enuff whiplash action. Of course I'm going power hungry already. Anyway what can I for some easy sup up mods for $200, or should I wait and save us some more?
I've obsessing with this car for a while before I got it. Now that I have it, it's suddenly not enough, what gives?!

Its not enough and you just got it? Your ****ed... Save up is the answer, get a cobb AP if you arn't going to be doing a lot and get a perfect power 7 if you are going to be getting new turbo and larger injectors and such. Don't go to fast, there are a lot of idiots that join up with their new STI's and then 2 weeks later there is a post title "I just rolled/crashed/totaled my new STI"

You just bought a $32K car, and your mod budget is $200?


You may want to rethink this...

Stop being silly and read the FAQs at the top of this forum. Someone wrote a good post called the Unabomber's Manifesto that is in there. Read it and all the links inside and make WISE choices. $200 is fine for some mods, but if you spend $200 on the wrong mods without the proper research, you'll be flat-bedding your car back to the dealer with holes in the pistons.

go ahead and put that $200 towards the new clutch you will have to buy after a month of whiplash action.

for $350 you can get the Cobb matched swaybar set and have MASSIVE handling gains
For $200 or uner you can get a downpipe and get about 25whp and a bit faster spool.

Honestly its a tossup which one makes the most fun factor improvement.

I would say research the stuff you want and will fit your needs. Read arounf the forums on others trials and tribulations or praise on parts that work. Save up the money for it then get it. Since replacing your vital parts of your Sti is more expensive.

you better save up more money before buying useless stuff that will break your car... I suggest save up and get EM or Swaybars and Strutbars...
