Well I just got this black 2005 Impreza 2.5 rs sedan, this is my first Subaru and my first modern car project! :) I'm planning on modding the handling first then move to HP gains. What way should I go with it? any opinions? :projectsti.com:

Hey i have a grey 05 RS and have owned it for almost three years
I have done a few mods such as:

-2-piece pulley kit from GFB.
-New stock headlights which i blacked out.
-TenzoR Cuzco "18 Black/Red wheels.
-2 1/4 Cat back exhaust:
(8x4 14" long O/C STR j727MN, 15"X2 1/4" HOTDOG, 2 1/4" TUBE ,Exhaust Tip)
-K&N Air Filter.
-Windows tinted.
-HID's
- Lowered
My future plans are high flow CAT, UEL Headers and an anti sway bar.

Not nit picking but this is generally a bad idea. But nice to see more 05 owners popping up.

Handling handling handling. Don't bother with horsepower gains as they are few and far between and expensive for N/As. Exhaust and intake may add a bit. But nothing as noticeable as the suspension upgrades.

I would def recommend strut/sway bars and some decent tires. :projectsti.com:

I feel like he thought you meant you blacked out the lense, not the internals. :blol:

Welcome however! Id do struts/lowering springs, endlinks and swaybars, then do brakes and go from there!



I like my 05 Lightwerkz headlights. :projectsti.com:

No, i meant the fact that HIDs are being ran in Halogen housings.
Blinds the **** out of any oncoming traffic, not to mention the light pattern is horrible from behind the wheel.

Nice and thank you all for the input! I'm currently broke as a college student but that will be changing soon :) after that I'll be looking for a WRX hood and getting the rest of the little things taken care from the deer hit then I was thinking about Perrin sway bars, end links and a set of ISC N1 coils to start things out.

It doesn't blind people if you angle the lights down and the light pattern is perfectly fine... :blol:
