Yeah, I know what you are talking about with the chip. I'm not going to get one until someone dyno's one, just cause I'm so confused as to whether or not it works, how well does it work, and whether or not my MY00 ECU learn around it and make it useless.

Yes, that seems to be that issue. I would like to see a dyno test immediately after it was installed and then again, say a month later to see if the ECU negated it.

already have a 20 mm rsb
new wheels and tires in the next month or 2

not much out there in the way of springs and struts for the 02's yet...i can make kybs fit with rear camber plates and zip ties. i could get the sti suspension but they cost almost as much as a set of coilovers do (teins look yummy at $1400)

could always get new pads and ss lines too

I'd go with pulleys, i got them now and they do help also i would suggest on not getting a underdrive pulley unless you go with a shiv one, all the others will dim you lights Or if you want to spend the casH go with a flywheel.

Forget all the add ons, start taking parts off. You know, weight reduction. Then I would work on the suspension, new tires and if you look into new wheels stick with 16 inchers. Just my opinion. Then look into engine upgrades. Then maybe a body kit, racing seats, a new paint job, hmmmm what else, blah blah blah, yada yada yada. 8-P
