Nice car.

But what are your goals? What do you want the car to do/be?

First mod should usually be:

1) Tactrix cable
2) Evoscan
3) Tune

For a tune, most people usually get an intake or an aftermarket high flowing filter and an electronic boost controller. If you want a different exhaust, a HFC and high flowing exhaust will give you more power with a tune.

You don't need any of that, but in case you want to squeeze more power out of the car, those are the basics.

Easiest mod is a 3 port boost control solenoid + a tune. You'll net ~60 hp

Like mentioned I'd also invest in being part of the process. Evoscan software for running logs and gathering information. Tactrix port + cable to connect Evoscan to your OBD-2.

All said and done less than 800 bucks for 60 hp (290 awhp).

You can max out to 330-340 awhp on pump gas and stock turbo if you start adding in other mods such as test pipe / hfc, intake ect.

I'd also highly recommend a boost and air/fuel ratio guage.

If you haven't already join the FE group on Facebook. Nice ride man

I agree with other 2 posters.

Tune is best thing you can do to this car.

Tactrix, 3-Port, may be HFC and filter or cone filter. Then Tune, and enjoy you brand new beast.

Find a tuner first prior to making any purchases and talk with them.

If your power goal is high I would suggest waiting on getting an intake because you may purchase a turbo kit that includes one.

Research, and map out viable plans. There's so much info here. Remember every time you upgrade a part (add in intake, add in exhaust, ect) you'll need at LEAST a touch up from your tuner (if not a full retune - changing MAF sizes, for example).

So plan your upgrades now and do it all at once. If you have E85 near you, I'd highly suggest a flex fuel kit. Stock turbo + E85 is an awesome street setup.

Definitely look into some weather techs, especially if you drive in winter. Keep that FE MINT!

Before deciding on any modifications you need to set your budget. If you want a good set of wheels and suspension, budget about $5k. A big turbo, between 12-15K, this would include 5K for a turbo kit, 5-6K for forged internal, cams and 1-2k for clutch and CMC upgrades. This is why it is important to set a budget and goals and then decide what to get.

Those will not make you faster though

With minimal parts for airflow and tune, you will shit on most STIs. Primarily because STIs are much harder to gain HP safely unlike Evo.

The car shits on the STI in stock form lol. please set a better standard. Perhaps, you set a goal of taking out the new 5.0 stang, M3, SRT8 or something along those lines.
