So I know I haven't posted pics yet, but I will!! I got my K&N Typhoon Short Ram intake today. I immediately installed it. It's great! I now have actual turbo sound with blow off!! And it actually runs much smoother, and spools faster!! I noticed a huge difference, much more than I thought I would. I'll get pics soon!!

No tune yet, but I plan on going stage 2. I have a Maddad whisper axleback right now, and then just the new intake. But I plan on a DP in the near future, and an STi intercooler, if I can find a decent deal on one!! I am also getting a Seibon STi carbon fiber hood scoop this weekend, for a very good price, couldn't pass it up!!!

Will do!! There is a local shop that is going to be doing tunes very soon. So I am looking at a stage 2 tune. I just gotta find out a price first, then get a dp and get it done!!!

You could always pirate the ECU with Romraider..Thats what I've done on the WRX, however it takes a lot of knowledge to properly tune..lol..I'm still learning..:lol:

Yeah, I would just like to get it done by someone who knows what they are doing. I'm really new to this turbo stuff. I've been following it for a long time, but this is my first turbo car.

BTW, your last post was 1,234:lol:

Now I got WRX struts with STi springs!! It sits a lot lower and handles a lot better!! It also doesn't squat so much in the back when you get on it. I'll get more pics when my wife gets back from Arizona with the camera!!

Thanks!! Yeah it goes real good, and handles awesome with the WRX struts/STi springs combo. And no more wheelies when I gun it!! I will soon be going stage 1 for now, and then in the spring, I have a set of Forester STi wheels being held for me, and I'll get a down pipe and go stage 2!!! Can't wait

So a new addition.....
Posted Image

I was going to do an opensource tune, but this was easier. I would have had to have someone come do the open source tune for me, but this I can do by myself. I have already installed the stage 1 tune, and man what a difference!! Pulls a lot harder, and its much smoother. I just have to get a down pipe and then I can go stage 2!! Can't wait
