Well first it would take hitting that little button up there in the corner that says search.

But I'll get you started, search for stage 3 and engine management.

You cannot get that CA legal as it will require replacing the up-pipe and downpipe. But other than that, exhaust, FP, injectors and a 19T upgrade.

I hate to say it, but hitting 270 AWHP between a WRX and an EVO, the choice is the EVO, especially for trying to keep it legit in Cali. The HP can be reached on a stock turbo on an EVO. Now if you look at an STI, its a little different than the WRX. But like stated, search around, you can see many different mod paths both on this site and NASIOC.com.

Yes, an intake.

And I neglected that it was an '06. You don't need to replace the up-pipe.

I have an 06' Evo IX MR with stock turbo and internals that dyno'd @ 374awhp with a hi-flow cat and stock UICP. My 07' WRX cannot compete, but that only is a Stage 2 + custom tune. If you are to go the Evo route, my biggest suggestion would be to go with the Evo IX 5-spd maybe with the SSL package for creature comforts.

Evo IX Recaro seats > 06-07 STi seats. This is if you travel or take a lot of road trips.
