Also note that this helps redistribute the braking bias of the car. 02-05 WRXs are way too front biased with the stock brakes. This helps 'correct' that.

Yes, RCE makes spectacular springs. You're gonna need to get tuned to run a downpipe. Even a catted one.

As for intake, ETS makes a nice one that doesn't scale too far off from the factory piece.

RalliTek doesn't make intercoolers. I have a feeling he is mistaking a radiator shroud as a FMIC. Since the listing would be expired, no way for us to know unless he shares it.
