Sorry, i have an 02 wrx, so 2.0

i'm new to the modding aspects and as i stated earlier, i want some extra horsepower in my car, and headers almost seem like the most cost will be the install, so what else besides that what else could i mod to get more HP besides a bigger turbo? basically this is so the protune will be worth it

besides accessport, dp, and catback (stage2).. u dont have too many other "cheap" options for extra hp. i dont think headers will give u a noticeable difference for the money spent. of course turbo upgrade is gonna net u the highest gain.. but that is something u dont want to cheap out on

well the main reason i don't want a bigger turbo is because when i sell my car (next 2 or 3 years) i don't want all that stuff on it and the person buying i wants a stock car, also i don't want to have to keep up on it and make maintainance cost more.... make sense?

Then honestly leave the car stock... seriously!

If the least amount of maintenance necessary is what you're really shooting for. Leave the car alone!

I would put an aftermarket TMIC at the top of that list with proper seals/shrouding/hoodscoop.

i was under the impression you already had the AP, and your question was regarding a custom tune vs OTS map.

I vote yes, get a protune. Thorw all the mods you want on your car and go get a tune! and a TMIC will allow you to run more boost, safely, with less pressure drop than stock. . .win-win-win.

I'm only at Cobb stage 1 and have a different car, but I think the AP is well worth the investment for someone who doesn't want to go hog wild with mods. I've read many times on NASIOC where WRX drivers were extremely pleased with the gains from Cobb AP Stage II and a turbo back exhaust without any further tune...
