bolt on questions.

Basically what i want to do is simple mods. Im looking at the srs turbo back exhaust on ebay, and was wondering will i see anygains from this system without tunning? I really want to get my full exhaust, k&n intake, front and rear sway bars...prob the eibach street kit, and maybe a sti intercooler. I have already purchased boost,oil,and egt guages. I just want to know if i need to buy a tuuner first b4 i purchase anything. Id like to just have a 2002 wrx with the power of a sti. Is this possible with the stock turbo? If not where does the turbo really start running out of breath. Im not interested in purchasing a turbo for this car because i have a project car already. I just want it a bit faster and to handle better. Thanks for the replys

I know for a fact that exhaust will yield gains untuned. I'm also sure that it's not a good idea to run it untuned, and it's retarded loud. If you often drive more than an hour on the freeway, you'll want to kill yourself. The drone is ridiculous.

Get a version 2. That's the best thing to buy right now.
Tune = some power safely
Bolt ons w/o tune= some power unsafely
Bolt ons + tune= more power safely

It's step 1 any way you look at it.

I take it the cobb stage 2 wett net me hp gains alone? And it will allow me to run my exh. intake and anything else i decide to do to the motor itself...which isnt much. I was also wondering what kind of hp can i expect to get out of the turbo without taking it out of its efficiency range?

How's that ?
