Newb to the site 08 wrx

Hey I'm new to the site, I bought an 08 wrx sedan less than a year ago and I love everything about it. I've done all the work myself, invidia catless tbe, Cobb intake, Cobb ap stage two, short throw shifter. Looking to get some insight on what my next step should be under the hood.

Install: tmic, headers, up pipe (not completely necessary, but you might as well since you're there), and fuel pump.

Install: 3 port ebcs and get a protune immediately.

After that, your next step will be a larger turbo + injectors + other goodies if you want.

Yeah I heard the up pipe isn't really needed since the 08+ isn't catted, but I appreciate the insight

how do you like your exhaust? does it make the car sound a little deeper? I have been looking around for exhaust systems and I can't really decide of what to get. It seems to be a little trickier with me because I am getting the 13 hatch which has a slightly shorter wheelbase. everywhere I go seems to only have the sedan exhaust. Maybe someone could point me in the right direction... sorry for posting this on yours but I was hoping you could help since you did the work yourself. haha

http://jscspeed.com they should have everything you need and fairly close by to you, I love the sound of my exhaust and it's a lot deeper than stock.
