Default Suggestions Suggestions.....

I own a stock 08 Subaru WRX sedan and Im looking for some suggestions to what to mod. Im not really looking for get a huge spike in HP but im looking for things to make my car look and sound better. I know some ideas were a turbo exhaust valve, new muffler (something not to loud but getter than stock), and other things like that. I already have led lights in the interior along with the interior accent footwell lights.

TBE and a tune will give you a noticeable jump in power without sacrificing much reliability or driving comfort.

Spend some time reading up in the Manifesto. You may learn a thing or two:

Turbo exhaust valve...? You mean a wastegate. Do some research maybe? And get tuned for everything you do unless u want a broken car.

A tune and a TBE is a good place to start. I would suggest research on your car. It sounds like you are just starting out on this.

We have sticky threads at the top of this forum and you have read none of them. Read them FIRST, then post. Try again. And don't ask vague open ended questions....be specific and state a budget.
