Well once again i have revised my future mod list for my future 02 WRX. I'm thiking of getting these parts in most likely the order i'm going to list them in.

-K&N drop-in filter
-Invidia UpPipe and DownPipe
-HKS Hi-Power CBE
-KartBoy Short-Shifter
-COBB Accessport - Stage 2, eventually Stage 3 map
-650cc injectors, Walbro Fuel pump
-AFR and EGT Gauges, + any others?
-Whiteline sway bars
-KartBoy EndLinks
-Even though i know im not supposed to, i'll probably evetually get the HKS SSQV
-Upgrade TMIC
-and finally upgrade to a 16G
-These Rims-http://www.discounttiredirect.com/direct/findWheelDetail.do?yr=2002&wd=17&c=1&pc=53625&rw=7&bp=5-100&vid=007040
-And Either Falken Azenis RT-615 tires, or the BF Goodrich G-Force tires...

Well, i probably forgot something to list here, so mention it if you know something i need to get. Thanks

start with the cobb ap first instead of doing all that other stuff....flash to stage one, get used to the power and then buy your downpipe and up pipe and flash to stage two...see if you then like the power...if your not satisfied then its turbo time with injectors and a fuel pump and the intercooler

usually just a drop in filter and possibly the silencer removed. More recommended than necessary though for stg 1.

So what blacknight is basically saying is that i should just get the AP first, along with at least a drop-in filter, and flash to stage1, and then later on get my UP and DP and then flash to stage 2?

you should buy a wrx first. That's step 1 I would think.

Haha, yeah i would think that would be step 1, but it's still guna be at least until late June, July until i am able to get one. !Cry! Hoping to find a nice 02 in either blue or black with at least less than 60kmiles

But i actually like that plan getting the AP first, then flashing to stage 1, then later getting the UP, DP and then flashing to stage 2... I'll think about this strategy haha...

How much power does the stage 1 flash give you?

When I flashed stage 1 it wasnt so much of a power increase as it was smoothing everything out. No more knock at idle, much better throttle response, smoother powerband, and better gas mileage. The butt dyno says there is a bit of a power increase, but overall smoother. I love it
