2005 wrx 1st mods? and GAS PROBLEM

Hey everyone just got my wrx about 1 month ago and looking for some cheap upgrades. any suggestions ?

I also want to mention ive been having this problem when i turn on my car and let it warm up a bit it starts to smoke at idle and when i pull out my driveway after about a 5 min warm up it smokes even more when i push the throttle. I also noticed ive been loosing a bit more gas than i did when i bought the car on regular driving. im thinking it might be the o2 sensors but im not sure. what do you guys think?

Yes right after i got the car. problem seemed to have disappeared and gas is turning back to normal. not sure what the problem was but it lasted a good 3-5 days.

Could be a bad oil seal in the turbo. Just my $.02 though.

You can't tune for the bov and not really for the muffler either, atleast you won't see any gains past what stage one will get you unless you have a DP as well. Do you know how it was tuned?

Some if not most chargers will see less oil consumption from raising idle ... not sure if you changed weights or not.

I myself isn't sure. That's what I was told from the dealer I bought it from. I'm new to the whole concept.
