new to Subarus

Hey everyone im suppose to be getting my buddys 02 wrx as soon as i sell my honda. Its got a few mods but i can tell i gotta replace the downpipe and the uppipe. It has a cobb tune, exhaust, hks ssq bov, manual boost controller. I havent quite decided what i wanna do with it but for now im thinkin tein springs or coilovers and some wheels and be done with it unless i update the turbo. Its meant to be more of a daily driver than a whatever car. Im looking forward to owning my first subaru so far ive had a toyota, a mazda(worst car to ever have is a mx6) and a honda(One big PIMA). so the subaru should be like the toyota everybody seems to say there tanks and can run forever.

I seriously recommend you do some research on boost controllers and blow off valves. They are not good mods for our cars and can cause damage.

The rule you should keep in mind when modifying a modern turbo car is that anything you change, anything, needs to be accounted for in the tune. The ECU on the car is reprogrammable and if you muck around with things, you need to reprogram it.
