2005 wrx cobb access port tuner?

HI i am new to this fourm and i have some questions on my car. I have a 2005 wrx with 140,000 miles. I want to start getting more power out of it. I found a cobb access port tuner for sale near me i was wondering if that would be a good start? I plan on doing intake and exaust along with the tuner. What tunes does the tuner have on it? All help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

With that many miles you should be looking into scheduled/unscheduled maintainence.

Still on the factory struts? Engine mounts?

That's a lot of miles. I wouldn't be out there for power.

Also look to see if the timing belt/waterpump/pullies have been done.

Radiator, plugs, fluids.... etc....

I've often wondered about this... How do you tell if the timing belt/waterpump/pullies have been done if it was 35000miles ago?

The sensation is as hard to forget as it is to ignore!!!

carfax, local dealer, receipts.... Only things that come to mind

Only reason I bought my Foz is because it had $2200.00 in maintainence done by them (dealer) right before they put it on the lot.

At 105,000mi the timing belt/waterpump/pullies need to be changed as scheduled maintenance.

Okay. Is 140,000 miles really to many to build the engine alittle?

Not to be BuzzKill McKillington but I always say that I would never buy a turbo Subaru with over 100k miles. They tend to be too worn and tired, especially if your plans are more power. You can do it, but be aware that the more you add the quicker you're going to be replacing parts. Much more so as opposed to when the car was new.

That wouldn't be overkill- my .02
But I wouldn't go more than that. Your suspension really needs your money right now though
