What about Exhaust Depot, is he making a downpipe, I looked at some past forums, or is he just making a whole system

I, also, have a little extra $$$, and am thinking of mods, but I don't want to "void the warranty" - at least not just yet. Because of that, I'm reluctant to install major pieces - all I've done so far is buy a K&N air filter. What, in your opinion, are the best mods to make, so I can smoke that slightly modded WRX in my city?

here is a little piece of advice..

dealers dont know if your car is modded , if it isnt when it pulls in the repair bay ..
any parts you replace , keep the origanal
if something over $100 breaks and you need a dealer repair , slap the stock parts back on.. i do it, and it's worked so far ..
not with this car tho.. i have a friend that is a mechanic at a srt certified dealership, so my warranty wont b gtting flagged anytime soon..

yeah i think exhaust depot is working on a 3" turbo back system ..
ask hector on pricing etc... im not sure if his parts are for sale just yet .. drop him a pm :D

btw my first mod was a cd player :lol: oh the horse power

i'm awaiting ATPs downpipe/race pipe, DM motor mounts, already did clear sides and got rid of the crosseyed look as per gdfly's ride http://www.srtforums.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=1122

Waiting to hear more info on suspension, I would like to do a set of coilovers but if all go well with the eibach pro kit I might just pick up some springs...

I am going to wait for MOPAR to mess with the ecu...

First Mod is the Type R badge. 5 hp. :)


MY dp and system should be ready in about a month. DP will fit stock setup. Also interchangable with my 3" system.

Funny Guy Hector!!!! (5hp i thought it was 10hp)...But anyways i hear alot of people are starting with a boost controller since in first and second you get less boost as the rest of the gears....And the boost controller takes care of the lack of boost in first and second....But your hairdryer also has to breathe better....So it is all up to you...Plus the boost controller adds to the interior look.....Hey Hector what about a BIGGER CARBON FIBER WING....

If you want quick power, a boost controller is by far the best bet. I set my boost to the stock 12psi and ran a car running only higher boost. He pulled on me easy and I had my 3" turbo back system on. SO boosting will beat a car with a full exhaust on it and is the best power adder for the buck, but its also the one that will cause a CEL etc if you dont know what your doing. Heck, even if you do know what your doing. :)

Don't be deceived by this statement, dealers do know when a car has been modified. I would opt to check with the dealership before making any mods to check to see if it is OK.

My dealership has no problem with this.

How would the dealership know if the car is modded, if you were to put all stock parts back together they wouldnt able to tell. I do not think the computer is that sophisticated. Semmed pretty simple when I took a look at it.

Welcome to the boards. First mod should be a K&N drop-in filter.

After you have about 2k miles, switch to Mobil 1 10W-30 motor oil.
