How About This Setup
I am seriously considering a WRX and substantial mods would not be far behind. My main concerns are:
1) Quiet as possible
2) not having to upgrade transmission or clutch.
3) Maintain everyday driveability and reliability.
Here is what I have put together in my head given what I have learned from this website so far, as I like to be well prepared/educated before I do anything:
IHI VF34 Turbo
TurboXS Turbo Back Exhaust, but with a borla hush muffler (is this possible?)
Perrin Intake (not cold air intake)
TurboXS Up pipe (has a flex section)
STI Injectors, 650cc
Proper dyno tune
Also, I realize i will need some sort of engine management - what is a good value in this department? (can i just get an ECU flash or do i need a new one?)
Do I need an upgraded Intercooler?
So what do you think guys? anything you would change or anything that would have to be added due to necessity?(i.e. I would have to ad it as to not hurt my car given the mods)
Oh, also, I live in Canada and emissions is a non-issue.
Any and all input is greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance for your time,
