New to Subaru and mods

So I have a 13 Sti hatch and I have a few questions about mods.

1. What mods will void my warranty.

2. I don't like the dual stock exhaust and want a single pipe, suggestions.

3. Questions about the CAI and the tuning it needs.(Also, idk what the stages mean)

Thanks and sorry for the noobry.

2. I don't like the dual stock exhaust and want a single pipe, suggestions. No comment here

3. Questions about the CAI and the tuning it needs.(Also, idk what the stages mean) Look into a Short Ram for now.

Thanks and sorry for the noobry.
You looking into engine management? What are you wanting out of the car? Post pics too.

Not really, just a nice sound with exterior mods. Rims, tinted head/tail lights etc...

Maybe a CAI and a BOV for engine mods.

No bueno on the BOV (research this for your car and what they do).

A CAI is the same (without EM and/or a tune).

I hate when all people want is a BOV cause it "sounds cool" and a CAI cause they saw one at the local auto parts store. Not bashing the thread starter but were here to steer you in the right direction! I'd pick up a cobb accessport to start!
