What do you guys recommend for under $500? I thought about a cold air intake and then I looked at the stock snorkel that pipes in air from the fender well. I'm not sure you could improve on that. So I was thinking axle back or even cat back exhaust but what else?

i think you could do a light turbo kit for under $500. 5 PSI of boost is good for like 7 lbs and wont require any engine management except for maybe a FMU.

or do a 2.5 block swap and use the 2.2 heads, makes for a big bump in CR

also looking for exhaust recomendations. Do oem sti / wrx exhausts bolt up right or give us much gain? (I can't stand the stock pea shooter muffler)

Get some form of engine management (e.g. PP6) you can generally find it used for around $300. You can then accomodate any other mods that come your way.

.. I paid 500 for my 2.5 dohc and swapped it in.. bingo, 50 instant hp :corn:









Oops, my mistake. I paid 450 for the engine and about 40 for the headers.
